Gen Con Loot

The best four days in gaming wrapped up on Sunday and I’d like to thank you for your patience, those of you who found us closed on Friday afternoon and on Sunday. I had a great time working for Plan B and Pretzel Games, meeting a number of personalities from Andrea Ahlers (Foreign Affairs, Plan B) and Martin Bouchard (lead designer, Plan B) to Isaac Vega (Dead of Winter) and Emerson Matsuuchi (Century: Spice Road). We brought home three notable games: Flick’em Up! Dead of Winter, Century: Golem Edition, and Wasteland Express, the later being my guilty pleasure purchase.
