Gen Con 50 runs August 17-20 in Indianapolis, Indiana, and as in years past BoardGameGeek will be at the convention (booth #1449) to broadcast interviews with designers and publishers for four days straight — 29 hours in all!

The broadcast will be streamed at https://www.twitch.tv/boardgamegeektv, then the stream will be chopped into individual videos that will be published on the game/publisher/designer page on BGG that best fits the subject of that video. (We will, of course, post them on the BGG YouTube channel as well.) The planned broadcast schedule is below, although it might change depending on what happens in the course of the day. All times listed are Eastern Daylight Time (UTC -4).

(We still have a number of holes in the schedule, and I have more potential contenders for those spaces than I have spaces. In general, we give priority to publishers who have newly released games at Gen Con. Beyond that, I'm choosing games that I think will have high levels of interest among those who can't attend the show and titles that will debut at SPIEL '17 since that con will supposedly have more than one thousand new titles and we can't possibly cover them all during that show, oh, dear God, how are we supposed to cover all those games...)

In previous years, I've included links to all of the publishers and games included in the schedule. In the interest of saving time and getting more done, for 2017 I will instead direct you to BGG's extensive Gen Con 50 Preview and invite you to search there for game titles. If someone else wants to create a version of this list with all the links in place, let me know and I'll swap in your linked list for this one, giving you a bucket of Geekgold as thanks. Update, August 9: Lance Coffee has claimed this bucket! Thanks, Lance!

Note that the SPIEL '17 Preview goes live on Monday, August 21 — the day after Gen Con 50 ends!

The answer is clear: multiple BGG demo booths running simultaneously. I need an excuse to pick up another monitor.

It's not, and I don't think Blue Orange Games plans to demo Queendomino at its booth, but I know the game is coming, so I can ask designer Bruno Cathala about the game during his time in the hot seat.

If we are attending the show, will these demos be presented to the live audience at the BGG booth as well? Or, are we better off catching them on Twitch/YouTube later?

Sure, you can visit the booth and watch people demo games, but we don't broadcast the demo, so you might have difficulty hearing people while they're doing their thing.

When do you think people die? When they are shot through the heart by the bullet of a pistol? No. When they are ravaged by an incurable disease? No. When they drink a soup made from a poisonous mushroom!? No! It’s when… they are forgotten.

1. Will the lessons be broadcasted?
2. Is the BEEP a test of our endurance or your endurance by seeing if you can make a beep sound that long?
3. Ahh yeah.

So close, Lance, but you eliminated the italics from the game names! Aside from that, by using only the code itself instead of sandwiching the game name with the code, if the name on the listing changes, then this name changes whereas I'd prefer to record the name now as is.

I'm sure fussy for someone looking for free work, I know...

We featured Alien Artifacts during the 2017 Origins Game Fair when the game was still under development, so we'll hold off on showing it again until SPIEL '17 when it's in print and we know that it's finished. Here's that earlier video:

I believe Twitch is the only broadcast method, although the video itself will be on the BGG front page.

Thanks for writing, Rachel, but as noted above these demo sessions focus on newly released games.

I could add your game to our Gen Con 50 Preview, but first it must be in the BGG database. I explain how to submit game, designer, artist, and publisher listings here: https://www.boardgamegeek.com/blogpost/36873.

That's one of the difficult factors of Indianapolis - no Jeni's ice-cream or equivalent, at least not that I know of?
