205 – Our GenCon Coverage! – The Family Gamers Podcast

Gen Con Online

What’s goin on GenCon GenCon?

We said last week we wouldn’t have any Gen Con interviews. Surprise! We managed to get a few after all.

But first, let’s thank our sponsor, First Move Financial. Go to www.firstmovefinancial.com/familygamers to set up a time to talk about your financial future.

What We’ve Been Playing

Super Powered Smash Masters (Dark Unicorn Games)

We really like where Claire’s prototype game is going. Anitra talks about her philosophy of being a play tester.

Pop-Tarts Game (Funko Games)

7 Wonders Duel

Last Defense (Funko Games) – a real time cooperative defense game. Random people run around and try to rescue scientists so they can defeat the weird giant monsters. Uses an iPad app to give instructions in real-time.

Endangered (Grand Gamers Guild) – we saved the sea otters, with four players!

Wavelength with the Charity Boardgamer – Chris Goodlet hosts virtual game nights every Thursday evening, along with an interview with some board game personality. We’ll be on August 13, raising money for One Mission, which helps kids with pediatric cancer. Stay tuned for how you can contribute!
