I Did get to talk with James Sutter about Starfinder @Gencon.  I caught him off guard a couple of times with questions that are light years away in development.  But we did discuss societies and organizations a good bit, and his favorite character.

I’m looking forward to Starfinder, I wish I would have picked it up at Gen Con, but they were gone.

At Gen Con 50 Laura Hoffman and I talk about Game On Tabletop and how it is different from other crowdfunding platforms.  One of those differences is it’s by gamers! Some of the others include fulfillment and marketing assistance.

I do believe I will be using Game on for my first game later this year, or early 2018.

Paolo Parente went around the Dust 1947 tournament table. He could have started anywhere, but he started with this guy.  The sound is almost non existent/muffles but the picture is clear.  Paolo thank you for loving your players.

I am fortunate enough to walk away from Gen Con every year with one true gem, I think this is this years!

Drakerys was recently kickstarted and debuted  at Gen Con 2016. I love this game for the simplicity it brings.  It makes a great gateway game for the miniatures world.

I am a huge fan of the “initiative” system.  Check  out the How to demo I filmed at Gen Con 2016.
