News from Gen-Con Day 1 (Thursday)on 08/17/2012 at 4:11 pm
So yesterday was the first day of Gen-Con, widely considered to be the biggest table-top gaming convention. From what I read and saw, here are the big ‘news’ stories to come out of Day 1:
-Fantasy Flight sells out of the Netrunner LCG in 7 minutes. Now we’re not sure how many of these they brought with them, and we saw many videos and pictures of people buying 5+ copies at once (FFG should have limited it to 1 or 2 copies per person but obviously did not), so there is that to consider.
-Paizo Publishing signs on for a Pathfinder version of Munchkin. Honestly, there is enough munchkin out there and we feel that the Beating the Dead Horse expansion was aptly named and should have been the last expansion.
– Fantasy Flight Games announces a Descent 2nd Edition Expansion called Lair of the Wyrm! As a big fan of Descent this was not expected so soon after the release of 2nd ed, but is definitely welcomed!
-The D&D Next panel was held at 7pm on Thursday, but I haven’t had a chance to watch it yet, so I’ll pass on whatever info I think is important from it after i watch it.
I’ll write more news as I hear it!
Fantasy Flight do a great job with their video ‘recaps’ of each day of GenCon here is their recap of Thursday:
