261 – Convention Interviews! – The Family Gamers Podcast
It’s boardgame convention season. We’re not actually attending GenCon or Origins this year, but we’ve still got some interviews with some of the creators of hot new games.
Fact – Kathrine Switzer (first woman to officially run the Boston Marathon) wore bib number 261.
What We’ve Been Playing
Happy City (Gamewright) – a nice laid-back city-building game. And short!
Get the MacGuffin (Looney Labs) – perfect as a 5 minute filler game.
Rescuing Robin Hood (Castillo Games) – more on this later.
Power Plants (Kids Table Board Gaming) – more on this later.
Fleet: The Dice Game (Eagle Gryphon Games)
Super Mega Lucky Box (Gamewright)
