Watch out for crazy, cowardly, SJWs! This guy got attacked because of his videos. That’s a great start to GenCon. Look after each other out there dudes.

His attacker has been identified. Best to avoid him.

To be frank, the person attacked should not have been at Gencon as he has been banned from MtG events for being a known harasser. That of course doesn’t excuse the violence towards him, when I think simply the guy should not be there any way.

It’s not just a mtg event the guy has every right to be there unless he is banned by gencon or the indiana convention centre. Is the person assaulted pleasant, that’s down to your own personal opinion. does he have a right to be there, well as the footage and assault happened in Indianapolis not the convention centre anyway, hell yeah.

so how many BoW workers do you need to change a tyre guys ?

Its definitely more than five, when you car doesn’t have a spare tire, the space saver foam fails to seal and it ends up needing to be towed to a tire place to be changed. But we got there and made up the time to boot 🙂

Answer- yet to be determined. Lol. To be fair, there was no spare! 🙂

Great stuff, good to see a majority of retail games as opposed to flashy kickstarters so far. The best coverage as always.
