We conclude our GenCon coverage with a casual conversation: our impressions of the con, favorite moments, memorable games and more.

Links and show notes continue after the break.

The Padded Cell at GenCon


Thanks to everyone who took the time to come talk with us during the con. I think it was our best mix of conversations yet!

Special thanks to Francie for donating her only day at GenCon this year to helping us at the padded cell.

Thanks also to Daniel and Antje Berg and Darrell Ottery for helping us tear down the booth and transport it home.

Thanks to Game Salute for providing us with space for our recording booth.

Massive thanks to our advertising sponsors: Greater Than Games, Flying Frog Productions, Bezier Games, and Stronghold Games. If you enjoy our coverage, take the time to let them know. Even better, check out their games and give them a try!

Last of all thanks to all our listeners. Without you, none of this matters one bit. 

We'll be back with a full slate of interviews from the Essen International Game Fair in October.

Stay tuned!

And Spiel on!
