Gen Con Digital Report #2

From gallery of Neumannium

Dave and I had a great time at Gen Con this year. We can safely say that digital board games are back in a big way in 2016 (after a lackluster 2015). Each of these 25 videos is packed with info, announcements, and more.

Codenames Digital Appears
Next up from Czech Games Edition, we got to check out Codenames with Vlaada Chvátil. Last year we just got a tease and now we have a the first gameplay footage. This is one you don't want to miss.

Evolution Gameplay Revealed for the First Time
We had the chance to chat with North Star Games about their growing digital team. Best of all, we got in-depth look at the upcoming digital version of Evolution. Things are looking great!

Galaxy Trucker Update Coming
The Galaxy Trucker app has been one of the most enduring games in the genre. CGE has continued to push the envelope with new updates and things that could really only happen in-app. This Alien Technologies app, coming soon, they've really leaned into that. This is a selection of challenges each featuring new rules, some that only work in a digital format.

Academy Games Digital Updates and Surprises
We've known Academy Games has been hard at work with HexWar on 1775: Rebellion for digital platforms. At Gen Con we learned that they are also working on Conflict of Heroes: Guadalcanal – The Pacific 1942 as well. This sounds like an awesome future for wargaming on mobile.

Handelabra Chats Sentinels Season 2
Sentinels of the Multiverse has been one of our most followed digital board games. It is exciting to see it more on to Season 2. We were lucky to have the chance to chat with Jeremy about what is coming next.

A Wild Super Dungeon Tactics Appears
One of the biggest surprises for us at the show was Super Dungeon Tactics, a digital take on Super Dungeon Explore. It looks like it will be coming in October. You can learn more details in the video.
