I love contexts where you can just say “It’s Thursday, 11AM, 2010,” and everyone knows when you mean. So yeah, it’s on once again: This Just In From Gen Con is in live-from-the-show mode, and we’re doing notes. If you’re new here,
shame on you! welcome! Here goes:
- Dresden Files RPG. (Our thoughts on same.)
- The Adventure Burner, completing the Burning Wheel core books.
- The Parsely Pack, comprising ACTION CASTLE, Jungle Adventure, Spooky Manor, and Space Station.
- The Diana Jones Award has gone to BoardGameGeek. And I don’t mean to look up that Agricola expansion. Congrats to Aldie and crew.
- The Smallville RPG, which does indeed look pretty righteous.
- Reactor 88 is doing an inSpectres movie as well as the Brave New World film announced last year. BNW author Matt Forbeck plays a zombie.
- Wisconsin is very cold.
- The Women in Gaming panel – I believe it’s the second year that Gen Con has done this? Can’t find a link, but it has just ended as I type these words anyway. (Somebody write it up!)
