Free Play 63 | Loving Nerdy Neighbors at GenCon 2019


About This Episode

If you’ve ever wanted to know what it’s like to be in a confined space with 70,000 of your closest friends nerding out over board games for four days in Indianapolis, Indiana… then you should go to Gen Con.  Because that’s exactly what it is. Over 600 games were shown and sold this year and we basically played and or bought all of them. There were more than a few that stood out to us and that’s what we want to talk about this week on the Free Play Podcast.
