That Time Hugh the Barbarian Stopped By the Booth

We miss Gen Con. With everything that is going on in the world, we totally understand why the convention couldn’t be held in person. Yet, we still think about it… We’ve been reminiscing on the fun times of years gone past when we came across these old photos of when Hugh the Barbarian stopped by our booth. Yes, he really did! Twice. Several years apart. He looked the same…but different… Who Hughed it better? You...

Memories of Gen Con Past

Oh, what could have been… It was a shame that we couldn’t attend Gen Con this year. In this time of crisis, we all miss seeing old friends and gathering together under the roof of our favorite tavern (re: convention space—or actual tavern for some). We truly enjoy talking to fans, seeing old friends, and just hanging out in this amazing shrine to gaming. Every year after the con we usually post a picture of the whole gang at the...

Game at Gen Con With Judge Brendan!

As you all know, there will be no physical Gen Con this year—but that doesn’t mean there won’t be an event! Gen Con online is just over three weeks away, and Goodman Games is a part of the action. We’ve already run two online events this year—Cyclops Con and DCC Days Online (and there are plans in place for a third one later in the year)—but we couldn’t leave the biggest gaming convention in the USA in a lurch....

That Time We Almost Built a Ziggurat

So, due to the global pandemic, Gen Con is canceled for 2020.  We’re all pretty bummed out. We had big plans for this year! BIG PLANS! On many fronts. New books! New tournaments! New booth dressing! There were so many things that Goodman Games planned to bring to Gen Con for 2020. This was going to be the year of the ziggurat. We’ve been building up to this for years! As Wayne put it, “Joe’s building his own life-size DCC...

2019 Gen Con In Review: The Gathering of the Tribes

2019 Gen Con In Review: The Gathering of the Tribes By Harley Stroh Like most gamers of a certain age, I began daydreaming about Gen Con as a child. Back then the logo was usually some sort of compass rose, printed in black and white, close to the end of a rule book. Growing up in rural Colorado, where the nearest gaming store was a sewing shop, I didn’t know what a gaming convention was, but I knew I had to get to this thing called...
