Time to get ready to go back to Philly in 2018!
PAX Unplugged is happening November 30 – December 2, 2018, and the tickets are on sale now. The convention was a great time last year and I got to chat with a lot of cool people and try out even cooler games, even did a little interview section on the podcast. People want a Post-PAX 2018?
Head over to PAX Unplugged’s site right now to register for the fun times. It is $65 for a 3-Day pass and lesser for single days.

What is BFGcon? Well it has nothing to do with the game DOOM. It is all about tabletop. Big Frederick Gaming Convention is happening at March 23-25. It is a 3-day convention that is all about the hobby. It takes place in Frederick, MD, and looks to be in line with MAGFest but just board games. They even have someone who is known for making comedic music about gaming doing two concerts.
But wait, there’s more!

Holidays are over so about time to get back to it. Thanks to CJ for writing his Best of 2017, I’m working on mine so look forward to that.
Before that…MAGFest is this weekend! Not trying to do anything special but if you see me around LET’S PLAY SOME GAMES!
I mentioned in the recent Nothing Fancy video but if you missed it, the weekly RPG Dramas will be taking a little hiatus. There is one more HEX episode to be edited for 2017. Sadly it will not air this Friday. So slightly early hiatus, followed by an episode, followed by more of a hiatus to finish out the year.
I’m hoping the hiatus doesn’t extend too far into January but I’ll keep you posted on when to expect more episodes.
In the meantime, check out my PAXunplugged interview from this past weekend. It isn’t an RPG but there is some good stuff about upcoming/existing.
Fireball Island was a classic game growing up for me. As posted earlier, Restoration Games is remaking the game so much rejoicing is happening. They haven’t revealed much but at PAX Unplugged, I got to chat with them about the game.

PAX Unplugged is completed and what a time it was! While I was there I caught up with a couple game companies to talk about their games. I was able to record interviews with Baba Geek Games, Osprey Games, Leder Games, and Rule & Make.

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!

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.
The third ever WashingCon is a month away. If you didn’t see our post last year, it is DC’s first board game convention co-sponsored by the area’s friendly local game store, Labyrinth Games & Puzzles. It is a nice convention full of a gaming good time. Tickets are available and they are looking for volunteers.
We did a fun, little meta-game last year with prizes. Stay tuned to our website to see if we decide to do something. In the mean time, hit the jump for the press release and more on what will be going on at the con.

And by some I mean a LOT!
PAX Unplugged looks like it will be a lot of fun and it is good to see that board game companies appear to be head over heals ready to support this new endeavor. From giants like Wizards of the Coast and CMON to lesser known companies like PulsArt Studios, Hero Forge, and Nauvoo Games… the number & type of exhibitors is great & varied.
I’m anxious to attend and cover some of what goes on there. Is there any companies you hope to see and/or I should cover?
