Free Play Ep. 18 | GenCon 2018 Preview


About This Episode

If you love tabletop games, conventions, and repurposing super jocky sports venues to fulfill nerdy needs, then you’re gonna’ LOVE GenCon.  Four days chocked full of way more board games than you can throw your wallet at.

All of the biggest review sites will be there to check out the latest and greatest the industry has to offer this season and I’m happy to report that Love Thy Nerd will be there as well.  There is so… so… so many games to see that there’s almost no way to really see them all while you’re there

Have no fear, Nerds.  Free Play has your back!

We came up with a non-definitive top 9 games to check out at GenCon 2018 and we want to talk about it this week on the Free Play Podcast.
