Gen Con was a whirlwind! It was four days of (happy) madness – and we can’t wait to do it again!
Passport Game Studios was on the scene with all of our games, including our newest releases. To get things started, we sent Passport Game Studios Gen Con Ambassador Holly Conrad to check out the crowds waiting to get in to the show floor. As soon as the doors opened, “Commander Holly” (as she’s known to fans on YouTube and TV) fearlessly led fans back to booth 1753, where Passport Game Studios had set up shop.
The booth was amazing – then again, we are a little biased! – with demos of Pocket Imperium, Warehouse 51, and Kingsport Festival running from the minute the show floor opened.
Stacks and stacks of delicious games were on display, ready to go home with their new owners!
Agnieszka Kopera and Andrei Novac, our friends from NSKN Games and designers of Exodus Proxima Centauri, were on hand every day to explain the new Exodus: Edge of Extinction expansion.
There was a whirlwind of board game press that made its way through to check out our new games. We were even invited to appear on the BoardGameGeek live stream to talk about Pocket Imperium and Warehouse 51!
As the Passport Game Studios Ambassador, Commander Holly met up with fans at booth 1753, taking photos, making them drawings, even playing ukulele!
(Holly also got a chance to meet up with Gen Con’s Artist Guest of Honor, Tony DiTerlizzi. He was definitely impressed by her Lady of Pain-inspired Planescape tattoo!)
The con wouldn’t be complete without signings from our favorite designers. Bruno Faidutti (Warehouse 51), Antoine Bauza (Tokaido, Samurai Spirit), and Eric Zimmerman (Quantum) all made appearances to meet fans and sign games.
All in all, Gen Con 2015 was a total blast. Games were played, new friends were made, and no one slept more than 4 hours a night! But we don’t seem any worse for wear…right?
See you next year!
