Day One of PAX Unplugged Complete

First day is done, free play section is closed down, time to get some sleep.

While I plan to do a little more in-depth discussion on this new convention, I can say it was a pretty good place to play games. Plenty of space and looked like a good amount of games to check out, though I can’t fully comment on that because I come prepared. Perhaps a little too prepared but fun was had!

Hex Adventures: The First Pyramid – Part 6

After narrowly escaping the giant scorpion and giant snake, our adventurers are outside the pyramid in a cave. Not knowing where they are, they must still press onwards. At least there is a lit path for them to follow, what could go wrong?

Curious about PAX Unplugged?

As I have mentioned a few times in the past, I will be at PAX Unplugged and reporting back with some interviews, random videos, pictures of games I’m playing, and more! Got to report on this new convention!

Feel free to say hi if you are there but if you are unable to attend, let me know if there is something you’d like to know or want me to check out for you. Hit the comments below and I’ll be sure to put it on a list…unless it is Dominion. Sorry, I just can’t.

Robit Riddle, a Robot Mystery

It is no secret that I am a fan of narrative driven games, so it is interesting to see how different board game designers approach this topic. Robit Riddle is a mystery/adventure game I first saw at Origins, had a successful Kickstarter, and now will be at PAX Unplugged as their production phase comes to an end. So it is right around a corner.

I hope to get more information on the game at PAX Unplugged so if you have any questions, leave them in the comments below.

HEX Adventures: The First Pyramid – Part 5

When we last left out three explorers, they were between a giant snake and a giant scorpion place. The dynamite didn’t go too well for them and so they decided to do a little dance. It is for snake-charming. Sure, of course it is! Will it pay off or will they be a split meal deep inside this new pyramid?

Hit the jump for the stream, and map to follow along.

Hex Adventures: The First Pyramid – Part 3

Our three explorers have found their way deep inside this giant pyramid and have begun exploring. With torches lit and glowsticks abound, it appears they weren’t the first recent visitors. Things appear safe enough until Bertram flashes his light down a dark turn and is greeted with a swarm of scarabs. This can’t be a good omen for the group.

HEX Adventures: The First Pyramid – Part 2

Our three adventures have found themselves at a new pyramid. It is much larger than others and includes a unique feature, a landing with two statues at the top. On said landing, there is an opening. As they make their way inside, what will they find… Treasures? Knowledge? Danger?
