Free Play Ep. 19 | The Best of GenCon 2018


About This Episode

GenCon 2018 is in the books!  And oooooo weee, there were so – many – games this year.  If you had a week to walk the expo hall you still wouldn’t have been able to even see all the games, let alone demo them.  This week we sit down with Chief Content Nerd and host of our very own Humans of Gaming podcast to figure out what we thought was the best of the best from GenCon 2018, and that’s what we want to talk about this week on the Free Play Podcast.
