YouTube jacked up the archive of the Hangout. It was fine during the broadcast, but it's like it chopped out about 20 minutes worth. I will leave it up in case it auto-fixes itself.

Drive Thru Live "Gen Con 2015 Q&A" Tonight! 8:30 EST.

Discussing Top 10s etc. Tune in! Audio/video available after.

Drive Thru Blog #40 - "The Mouse is Real"

Good morning everyone!

If you have been watching this blog or the associated YouTube channel, you may have picked up on the Kickstarter I ran at the end of last year to help support continuing coverage of Gen Con for 2015. For this latest Kickstarter, I was joined by Adam McIver of The Cre8tive Dept, Andrew Tullsen of Print & Play Productions, Cynthia Landon of MeepleSource.com, as well the support of some great publishers and designers to create promotional items for the campaign.

Well. The promos are here!

I am very happy to tell you that the final promos are in hand, and Andrew of Print & Play Productions will commence shipping of these! Needless to say, I am very excited (we're talking Shia Labeouf levels of excitement here), and I hope everyone who backed the project is equally excited.

For a special treat I have photos of all of the promos of their physical "in the wild" manifestations that I wanted to share with everyone.

I'm very proud of these. I'm also extremely proud and appreciative of the hard work put in by Adam, Andrew, Cynthia, and all of the designers and publishers for these games. I am forever grateful to everyone involved for allowing me to be creative in the universes they gave breath.

Frankly, I can't believe these are "real".






What's next? Gen Con!

The past couple of weeks I have spent some time preparing for Gen Con. The calendar is already full of appointments with publishers and designers to take a look at their new releases. I will also have a video blog update (likely next week) talking about three events that I will be participating in at Gen Con. They should be a lot of fun.

Here's a sneak peek. I will have more detail on these events in the video.

Battle of the Board Game Networks: On Friday at 6:00 PM in the Crowne Plaza (across the street from the convention), myself and several other board game reviewers and podcasters will be participating in a fun and interactive social gaming event. We'll be playing (loosely) in teams a variety of social games such as Spyfall and But Wait There's More. The playlist is not yet finalized, but it should be very interactive with lots of audience participation... and also LOTS of games and promos being given away. The details are being finalized (more in the video), but you can check out the event here: https://www.gencon.com/events/68848

Kickstarter Advice Panel: On Saturday at 2:00 PM at the Westin, I am very proud to join John Wrot, Jamey Stegmaier, and the folks from Panda GM on a Kickstarter advice panel. Frankly, I will probably listen to the great advice from those folks more than anything. It should be a great time. You can find the event listed here: https://www.gencon.com/events/72957

Giant Sized Neuroshima Hex battle: Myself and Matt Evans from Board Game Replay are going to throw down against Rodney Smith from Watch It Played and Marty Connel from Rolling Dice and Taking Names in a team match of Giant Sized Neuroshima Hex. The event is not added to the Gen Con event site just yet. But, it will be taking place immediately after (or at the end of) the A Look Through the Portal event at the Crowne Plaza Thursday at 7:00 PM. You can get a ticket to A Look Through the Portal here: https://www.gencon.com/events/67797

Twitch vs. Reviews

Finally, I am due for some more Twitch videos. Through the Kickstarter funding I've been able to purchase a few more cameras, so I hope to continue to improve these broadcasts. I need to put these new cameras to good use!

So, once I get caught up a bit on this Gen Con planning, I will get after some more Twitch broadcasts leading up to Gen Con. I'm actually behind more than I've ever been with the reviews. So, I'm going to end up sticking "reviews" at the end of some of the Twitch broadcasts and see how that shakes out. I'll be sure and timestamp these like I do normal reviews for folks who don't want to watch a long playthrough, but are still interested in a review.

Thank You!

Once again, thank you to everyone for your support over the last several years. I really appreciate all of it. And extra special thanks to those who supported this project and everyone involved in making it a reality.
