Get ready for the 'Masters of the Universe' board game with a limited edition He-Man…
Here is the board game (and board game-related!) news that caught our attention for the week ending February 7, 2020.
Gen Con badge registration is live! Make sure you grab your badges now and keep your eyes on this space for details on our annual Gaming with GeekDad event. Also, the housing lottery is this weekend, so if you need a place to stay while you’re there, make sure you buy your badge this week.
Lots of mainstream news coverage of board games this week. First, Smithsonian Magazine ran a piece on the best board game of the ancient world that makes me wish that most of these have rules because they look cool.
Michigan melodic death metal outfit The Black Dahlia Murder is selling a limited edition version of their upcoming full-length, Verminous: Depths of Drasted, that comes with dice, maps, and an album-inspired D&D campaign.
What We’re Playing
Finally, here’s what the GeekDads played this week:
Michael Pistiolas played Magic: The Gathering and Unicorn Glitterluck: A Party for Rosalie
Jonathan Liu played Clank! Legacy, Gladius, Hunker, Miyabi, and Oceans.
Robin Brooks played Warhammer Underworlds: Beastgrave.
