How Wayne Built The Gen Con Obelisks of Doom

Doom. DOOOOOM! One of the most popular features of our Gen Con booth is the DCC imagery. Fans love the painted back drops, the artist booths, and seeing all the amazing new art. In 2017 they loved the Gong of Doom, and its use to let all know another brave soul had fallen. As you approached the Gen Con booth in 2018, you were greeted by the latest prizes of The Dark Master. This year the newest additions were The Obelisks of Doom!...

Meet The Gen Con Teardown Squad

It’s a little known secret: when the last customer leaves Gen Con, they turn off the air conditioning. And then they open the big outside doors. In August. But the few, the proud, the sweaty stay behind to help disassemble the greatest days in gaming, because somebody has to pack up everything before we go home. And thus today we give you another behind-the-scenes look at life in the gaming industry. Today we show you the teardown...

Gen Con 2018: The Goodman Games Judges Awards

We’re very excited to announce the inaugural Goodman Games Judges Awards (which some fans have affectionately titled “The Goodies”).

Judges make the con for many of our fans, and we’d like to recognize this. For the first annual Judges Awards, we ran...

And, with no fewer than 14 TPKs over 24 sessions, the...
