Our annual Gen Con Recap is here! Tiff and Dan are fresh off their trip to Gen Con 2015 and here to debrief on all the new and exciting things that they were able to demo and play while in Indianapolis. We chat about some recent news that emerged at the con including our experiences learning and demoing a ton of unreleased games at the IELLO and Asmodee Press Only Events. We then dive right into what was hot, what we bought and the one game that really disappointed us. Matt also discusses his GenCan’t experience and the games he bought and played. This episode is a little longer than our usual 60ish minutes but we hope you enjoy it nonetheless!

EDITOR-IN-CHIEF/PODCAST CO-HOST : Allow myself, to introduce myself. Boardgaming since the womb, I have an unsound infatuation with buying, playing, discussing, photographing, and writing about boardgames. As a boardgame aesthetics enthusiast (say that 5 times fast) you'll typically find that I spend a large majority of the game examining the design, art, and components. I prefer strategic eurogames but will play just about anything these days (except Arkham Horror). And I love Pearl Jam.
