One of the best things about the Atlanta Game-o-Rama game festival was that it appealed to gamers of all ages.


GIRL: Check this out Alien Uprising -- it says that it's a cooperative bug-smashing adventure for 1 to 5 players from designers Richard Launius and Sean Brown.

BOY: Who are Richard Launius and Sean Brown? Never heard of them.

GIRL: Duhhhh -- Sean Brown is the designer of the game Stoplights.

BOY: Oh, he did Stoplights? Good to know that at least one of the two has a history of designing games. I guess this Richard Launius guy is just riding on Brown's coattails, trying to learn something about game design?

GIRL: Yeah, probably.

7 Wonders guru Brian Mattick lapped the field and was a run-away winner in the 7 Wonders tournament. I asked Brian about the possibility of repeating as 7 Wonders champion in 2015:

I like my chances. I know being overly confident can kill you in a tournament...but fortunately, I am overly good, too!

There were two types of gamers at the Atlanta Game-o-Rama festival:

[a] those who were happy

and

[b] those who wanted to kill the photographer



Can you tell which is which in this picture?

Torn ACLs are one of the many hazards associated with board gaming. 25 years ago, such injuries were always career ending. But, due to improved surgical techniques, now 85% of gamers are able to return to table!
