It’s become somewhat of a running joke around these parts that I’m not particularly fond of tabletop games — or that I don’t even know what they are! I find this to be patently untrue! I’ve dabbled with a board game from time to time — my experience with Puerto Rico is well documented. And I can name other board games too!
Chess. That’s a board game, right?
And uh… poker, I think?
Also there’s… um…
Alright, maybe I need some help, especially if we plan on taking a particular game showcase panel to a particular tabletop convention.
That’s right, Hidden Gems is finally conquering the last continental PAX there is: PAX Unplugged! But I’m going to need some help showcasing cool, overlooked tabletop games since I’m clueless about such things. Fortunately, I know some people that are up to the task!
For starters, I’ll be dragging another member of the Wardcast crew along with me — our own tabletop expert, Alex Damrath! — for the very first Hidden Gems of PAX Unplugged!
And alongside Alex and myself, we’ll be joined by some other amazing folks from the tabletop gaming world — Adriel Wilson, designer at 9th Level Games, and Victoria Caña, producer at Wizards of the Coast and designer at Cat Quartet Games!
So if you plan on being at PAX Unplugged, join us on Saturday, December 7th at 2:30 pm ET in the Crab God Theatre where we’ll run you through a showcase of tabletop games you won’t want to miss!
