Gen Con 2016 – Steve Jackson Games – Car Wars 6th Edition

While I was at GEN CON last week, I got a chance to speak with Phil Reed, the CEO of Steve Jackson Games. I had learned prior to the convention that the date had moved out for the release of the 6th edition to 2017, which I found as good and bad news. The bad was just the little kid in me that wanted it now, and the good is that being patient will give us a cool fully play-tested functional game. The “I want it now” has been smacked down by my wiser, “Be Patient Dummy!!!”self.

I wanted to learn and hear about the upcoming changes to look for in the new edition, and Phil filled me in on some of what we should expect.

Gen Con 2016 – The Best Four Days in Gaming Recap

I was able to spend four days gaming with lots of people and it was great! It all took place last week in Indianapolis at Gen Con. I took some videos of the convention center and a few pictures of my adventures. Wednesday Night we walked over to the convention center to check out the setup, and the first thing we saw was a line. A VERY LONG LINE.

So I went back, and recorded a video as I walked the line. The next day I was able to get an early entry ticket into the Exhibit hall and walked through with my recorder. I saw the new Stuff from Goodman Games, and a demonstration of Ascension – Dreamscape from Stone Blade Entertainment. Then the crowds poured into the Exhibit Hall.
