This weekend we celebrated being one of the few Pop-Up Gen Con events in the world. Since we’ve also completed our move, we decided to make it special and celebrate our Grand Reopening too!
So we had 4 days of great events, including Learn to Paint, Board Game Demos (including Gen Con exclusives), Pathfinder 2e demo, character creation and play, a King of Tokyo tournament, a Speed Paint contest, and a cool LARP: Here’s My Power Button. The full event listing. Over 100 people joined us for the event!
Thursday, players came to check out the Gen Con board games — Josh and other early preparers taught a few, while others were picked up, read and played by curious gamers.
Friday night featured the first Pathfinder 2e play and a Learn to Paint.
Saturday morning dawned early — and a few gamers got in a couple of rounds of Just One, a fun party game that won German’s Game of the Year award.
By 11, two games were being demoed in parallel. At one table, Steven Duran taught Curios!
At the other demo table, Tracy Tosta taught Point Salad!
To kick off the afternoon, Scott ran a King of Tokyo tournament. Matt Wenzel took Tokyo for first, followed by Alfredo Chavez, Jason Wilcox, and Adam Q. (Pictures of a shattered Tokyo omitted to spare the squeamish, though a twitch stream of the game is here — King of Tokyo tourney.)
Back in the main room, Steven was leading a game of Hadara.
Meanwhile, Josh taught Little Town —
Later, we tried out Mental Blocks… and found it surprisingly fun. It gets even better with more players — up to 8!
Elsewhere, at the same time, was Speed Painting!
The winners got cool dragons to take home (and paint!)
Before he left to prepare for the evening’s LARP, Josh taught Medium. It’s a lot of fun, similar to The Mind in many ways.
Casey taught Terror Below. If you like Tremors, you’ll find a lot to like!
Plus, at 4 pm, games of Pathfinder 1e and Adventurer’s League kicked off!
The Pathfinder 1e game was streamed on twitch!
