Haha, my immediate thought was it was obviously a great night in worlds bar last night, and today the Beasts are perhaps a little delicate

Ben made a comment in one of yesterday’s vids that he’s turning to the pointy-ear side, so ‘delicate’ is viable.

I think I am getting a bit jealous, I thought Gen Con had some awesome exhibitors, but looking at what is in the UKGE is making me green with envy.

Been out with the kids all day, just back to chill now. Had a quick glance through the content from today so now it’s time to grab some tea and binge it all.

@warzan, @lloyd, @destiny, @dracs, @brennon – Just wanted to say I’m really enjoying the format this year, the blend of roaming interviews and sit down interviews is producing a ton of content that I’m completely failing to keep up! You’ve outdone yourselves again, I’m sure you’ll all be wrecked by the end of the weekend.
