We’ve come to an end of this countdown. On May 19th, Gen Con officially cancelled their event for this year. All the badges will roll over to 2021 (unless individuals request otherwise) and they will instead be offering Gen Con Online this year, during the same dates. We’ll now be counting down to that, and we’re going to start posting some digital games… Maybe a lot of digital games; we’re running out of board games and our local cafes are not open.

Ticket to Ride was perhaps our gateway into the hobby. We happened to see the 10th Anniversary when we were shopping for a copy. It’s huge and beautifully made – we’ve definitely been more partial to special editions as a result.
With a library of over 100 games, it can be hard to keep everything in rotation. Dominion, Castles of Mad King Ludwig, and Ascension are all games that we play multiple times a year. We used to play Dixit quite a bit, but that was years ago. We only recently played Helios and Pioneer Days for the first time. Helios had been on the shelf for nearly two years, still in wrap. Kingdom of Solomon and Herbalism have yet to be played, but they are both fairly new acquisitions.
