Welcome To Day Three Of Gen Con 2017!

23 Comments

Welcome to Day Three of Gen Con 2017 here in Indianapolis over in the USA! We've got plenty more for you to get stuck into throughout the day with competition prizes for you to snap up.

We are also going to be taking you beyond the bounds of the convention centre and checking out the Lucas Oil Stadium (it's more of an Ultramarine stadium we think...).

New Forces Join The Ranks For DUST - Is That Cthulhu?!

12 Comments

DUST 1947 is bringing out the big guns as we see Cthulhu forces joining the game. They've been hiding in the shadows up to now, but they're ready to join the game and shake things up a bit!

If that's no cool enough, the Japanese are teaming up with the SSU (hooray for Dawn & Lloyd!).

Walk About Time; Heading To The Lucas Oil Stadium (Board Game Library)

25 Comments

We thought it was about time that we headed out of the convention centre and made our way over to the Lucas Oil Stadium to check out the board games library and more there.

So, with that in mind - follow Ben & Dawn as they go for a wander. Funny music ensues...

We took some time to check out the Gen Con Museum here, and it really was a fantastic experience seeing how the show had grown.

The video is coming soon but in the mean time here are a few images to let you know what we had to be pried away from!

Board Game Library Spotlight

18 Comments

Board Game Libraries are a great idea at these kind of conventions. They allow you to chill out, blow off steam and play some old classics as well as a whole bunch of new games too.

The one over in the Lucas Oil Stadium is very much in the same vein and comes packed with plenty to choose from. You could easily spend your entire weekend here we reckon.

Well done for keeping up the enthusiasm, looks like a great con to be at, but exhausting at the same time.
Love to see some indie games from companies that we might never have heard of.

The end of day video just goes to show how awesome Dawn and Gianna are as they normally have to cover the event on their own. Great job everyone, looking forward to today’s installment.
