Back from Gen Con

We arrived back in Montreal on Tuesday afternoon after a very busy Gen Con, running hundreds of demos. Everyone who tried the new rules loved them and we got a lot of new players into the game.

Attendance was up again this year to a new record of 56,614 attendees. I took a few photos of our Gen Con crew and picked four to included with the Facebook post. Top left has myself, Robert Dubois, being photo boomed by Jason Willenberg. Followed by Dave McLeod, in the bottom left, running a demo of the New Edition Heavy Gear Blitz Beta Rules. Top right has a group shot of the most of the crew (left to right: Joe Johnson, Wunji Lau, Hugh Browne Jr., Jenny Willenberg, Avelardo Paredes, and Jason Willenberg) from Friday morning just before the hall opened to attendees. Bottom right has Mark Perre (left) and Hugh Browne Jr.(right) brushing up on the new rules before the hall opened.

A big thank you to all the Gen Con Crew, helpers and fans who stopped by to say hello and try a demo game of the new rules.
