Such ‘technical difficulties,’ according to Goodman Games’ own...

We want to thank the organizers, staff, and volunteers from the show for making us feel welcome in this new era of in-person gaming. And...

2019 Conventions Year in Review: Whew!

2019 Conventions Year in Review: Whew! By Brendan LaSalle Goodman Games went on the road early and stayed out late in 2019, with our extended family hitting more shows than ever before.

That’s my new record, and I celebrated by sitting very still for a long time not thinking about gaming. I had so many...

At one point there were 17 people for a single game—and all of them got to play thanks to help from some fellow Judges who stepped in to make it three games instead of one! And on Sunday, he ended up running a non-stop...
