I had the chance to attend PAX Prime, held August 31-September 2, 2012, and capture several board game demos, which are posted below.
If you'd like to view iOS and video game-focused videos, head to iOS News for my initial video round-up. You can also view my write-ups of the experience here and here.
I apologize for some of the video quality; I was alone and it was a little tricky to do some shots. I will attempt to have more backup in the future.
Steve Jackson Games
While meeting with Steve Jackson Games, I was able to get demos of Castellan and Ogre Pocket (which will sell for $2.95!).

The demo tables were pretty slammed at this booth, but I was able get the latest news from Cool Mini or Not.
Cryptozoic Entertainment was my first stop at the convention. While there I was able to capture walkthroughs of the DC Comics Deck-building Game and Hot Rod Creeps.
While speaking with Alex from Mayfair Games, I was able to get demos of Star Trek: Catan, Urbania, and Empire Express.
Japanime Games and Coffee Haus Games
While meeting with these guys, I was able to check out the recent Kickstarter success Kanzume Goddess as well as two interesting imports: Vanuatu and Sheepland.
Game Salute had a fairly large presence on the show floor at PAX. I was not able to demo every game due to limited table space and timing, but I did check out several titles, including Zpocalypse, which is currently available; Story Realms which is currently on Kickstarter; and Ruse and Scrapbots, which will be coming to Kickstarter later on.
