This week in Indianapolis, thousands of board game players, designers and publishers are gathering for the annual Gen Con. I won’t lie. I want to be there even though I cannot stand crowds. There are so many new games on the brink of coming out, or just came out, that I’d love to see them and try them. My budget and lack of storage space thank me for staying home.
I have been learning how to play new games on my iPad. So far this week I have played Ganz Schön Clever, Latice and Roll For It!. I have found all three games to be lots of fun and I look forward to having the physical copies so that I can teach Truck how to play.
I will be following Gen Con on Twitter and also following GenCan’t, a feed for those of us that can’t make it but still want some convention-like fun. More info, as well as a link to the two winning Print and Play card games from their contest sponsored by Button Shy, you can head here.
