OgreCave video: Camp Grizzly, Star Wars X-Wing, and Megadungeon

Thursday, July 31st, 2014

The KublaCon 2014 coverage is continuing on OgreCave’s new YouTube channel with three more interviews. This time we sit down with Jason Topolski of Ameritrash Games to hear about Camp Grizzly, the ’70s horror movie board game. Then we speak with referee Brian Denmark about the Star Wars: X-Wing tournament he’s running to see what’s involved in running a competitive convention event. We eventually find Vern Roberts, a member of KublaCon’s staff, preparing to oversee the carnage of the Megadungeon crawl, a massive player-versus-player Pathfinder tournament which uses over $10,000 of Dwarven Forge MasterMaze miniature scenery. You’ll catch glimpses of other KublaCon activities between these interviews.

Have a look, and be sure to subscribe on YouTube to get all our upcoming video coverage, including some new things we’re working on.
