GenCon 2016 – Tribality Schedules

So, another year, another GENCON, and Michael Long and Rich Howard will be in attendance.  If you’d like to say “Hi”, please do. If you see Michael wandering the halls, then ask to see if he has anymore of those Tribality Patches to give out. You can also get a hold of Rich and Michael on Twitter while at the convention: @umbralwalker, @mrlong and see where they are.

This year will feel very different than previous. Rich is starting a new Job and kicking his gaming design career into high gear, Michael is getting quite a bit of meetings with game companies & designers, and Tribality was nominated for an award this year.

Origins Game Fair 2016

It’s almost June, and I am back from vacationing. A lot of exciting things are happening in June, and one of those is the upcoming Origins Game Fair*. I will be traveling a few hours up to Columbus, and spending a lot of time there with my two youngest kids. I will be running some Wizards of the Coast Board Games tournaments on Thursday and Friday for Baldman Games, and playing in The Dungeons & Dragons Open. We also all have Are you a Werewolf? ribbon for night time gaming.

Watch the Acquisitions Inc. PAX Prime 2015 Game

On Friday night at Pax Prime, Acquisitions Incorporated played out their latest chapter live to a audience and viewers on Twitch. Watch the video to see two-plus hours of live game play from PAX Prime with DM Chris Perkins running the Rage of Demons adventure for Mike Krahulik (Jim Darkmagic), Jerry Holkins (Omin Dran), Scott Kurtz (Binwin Bronzebottom), and Patrick Rothfuss (Viari).

Congratulations to the 2015 ENnies Award Winners!

In case anyone missed it, the ENnies award ceremony took place on July 31, 2015. The ENnies award ceremony is a time to spend a night to celebrate with the award winners at Gen Con. Wizards of the Coast really cleaned up with 15 well deserved gold awards, for their D&D 5th edition products. I’m really happy to see Roll20 win gold for Best Software, it’s a great product I’ve been using for my weekly game of D&D for over 2 years.
