Gen Con 2019 takes place on August 1-4 in Indianapolis, Indiana, and as in years past BoardGameGeek will be at the convention (booth #1349) to broadcast interviews with designers and publishers for 29 hours over the four days of the show!

The broadcast will be streamed Twitch.tv, 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 also post the individual videos on the BGG Express YouTube channel.) The planned broadcast schedule is below, although it might change depending on what happens during the course of the day. All times listed are Eastern Daylight Time (UTC -4).

BGG's Gen Con 2019 Preview includes hundreds of listings for games that will be sold or demoed at the convention. Only a fraction of those titles are included in our demo schedule since in general, we give priority to publishers who have newly released games at Gen Con. Beyond that, I've chosen a few upcoming releases that I think will have high levels of interest among BGG users as well as a few titles that will debut at SPIEL '19. Many thanks to Steph Hodge for doing the heavy lifting to create this demo schedule!

Note that the SPIEL '19 Preview goes live on Monday, August 5 — the day after Gen Con 2019 ends!

Dice Realms is a standalone game, not an expansion. We tend not to book prototypes at Gen Con (and SPIEL), but Tom doesn't normally attend Gen Con and I didn't want to pass up this chance to have him on air.

I was referring to the New Frontiers & Res Arcana items; I wasn't aware Dice Realms is also a Tom Lehmann design. Exciting.

Not many "To Be Announced" games. I wonder if any of the heavy hitters are going to bring any surprises.

I'm surprised there's nothing for FFG/Asmodee this year.
I know they have their own events, but they used to be on the BGG stream as well.

We've covered some titles from the Asmodee studios at Spielwarenmesse, FIJ, GAMA, and Origins. Many other titles were being presented only in prototype form, with the games due out at SPIEL '19, so it made more sense to cover them on our livestream at that show. As for FFG...

I just checked and see that Indianapolis is in eastern time zone. I live on the west coast and want to watch several videos so can I assume 3 hours earlier for me?
What time zone are your lists shown in? Thanks!

I demoed "Destroyer of Words" by Mixlore and it was probably the surprise of the con for me. "Battle scrabble", but way more fun than that sounds. The kid demoing (sorry I didn't remember his name) did an awesome job, and I'm telling you...I'm super excited about this game
