GenCon 2016 Recording Schedule

In years past, we have done 30+ one-on-one interviews with publishers and designers from all over the world. 

This year we are recording 7 round table discussions featuring an engaging mix of smart, fun people in the game industry. Each discussion is on a specific topic.

Listed below are the 7 topics and the amazing array of guests we have booked for each recording. I think it's going to be a great group of conversations! We'll release the discussions the week following the convention, one a day for seven days.

We will be recording our coverage on Thursday, August 4th at the Gigamic booth (#3065) in the exhibit hall at GenCon. Special thanks to Nate Scheidler at the entire team at Gigamic for giving us such a warm welcome and being so supportive of this endeavor!
