Ep 50-52: GenCon Online

Pay no attention to the numbering system, we're just trying to fix some mistakes me made in the early rounds of the game so it's easier on our brains.

 

We went to GenCon! Sort of ... it was GenCon Online, it was different but we played some games! We played: Plunderbund from HutChu Enterprises, On the Origin of Species from Artana, Genotype from Genius Games, Atheneum and Stellar from Renegade Games, Codinca from Back Spindle Games, and In Too Deep from Burnt Island Games.

We talk about what makes it great and why we love it.
