Tony is on vacation for this episode, but before he left we were able to record our views on Codenames:Duet and Professor Evil and the Citadel of Time. While he’s gone, Rich Sommer from Cardboard! joined me as co-host to help navigate this episode.

Plus we have our second Scurry Report where we talk about the massive adventure game, 7th Continent. And my son joins me for a segment to share his thoughts on the new miniature game from from Games Workshop, Shadespire.

RDTN Episode 126: Gen Con 50 with special guest host, Rodney Smith from Watch It Played!

Our Gen Con report is here and it is a hefty one. It might have been shorter had a special guest not joined us, but he was forced to participate or we wouldn’t let him go to bed. Rodney Smith joins us on this episode as we recount our events at Gen Con. The daily festivities are recounted and not much gaming because, well, Gen Con is about seeing the stuff that is coming and hearing about what is planned for the rest of the year. Also, it doesn’t help that there are 60,000+ people at the Con and we are all trying to get to the hotness. Also, please don’t forget to support Rodney on his crowd funding campaign.

Even with that many people, it never felt that crowded. Now, don’t misunderstand, there was a crowd, but you could move and patience went a long way when you were on the floor. And when the vendor area closed, there were plenty of opportunities to attend other events, some you paid for, others were free.

We also want to say thank you to everyone who attended the RDTN meetup at the Omni Bar, it exceeded our expectations. The Strike tournament was a hit and the final battle was epic.

We also want to thank those companies that sponsored the prizes during our meetup, without them, we would have still had the event, but it wouldn’t have had that humph!
