Re-Roll: This Week’s Tabletop Game News for the Week Ending July 31, 2020
Here is the board game (and board game-related!) news that caught our attention for the week ending July 31, 2020.
I very much wish I was writing this edition of Re-Roll from Indianapolis, and maybe running into a few of you at Gaming with GeekDad on Saturday, but alas, it’s 2020. That doesn’t mean there’s no Gen Con, though: Gen Con Online is happening now, from your own living room. Be sure to check out the events on the Gen Con Online website, where you can interact with your favorite publishers and designers. Several publishers, including Portal Games and Z-Man, have published their Gen Con schedules.
Renegade announced on its Gen Con Online page the upcoming release of Embarcadero, a new card-and-tile game set in San Francisco in the 1850s.
Pandasaurus has released its new strategy game, Ctrl.
The island of Mainau, Germany is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the initial release of Catanby creating a massive, 108,000 square foot field representing the famous game and its pieces. Through at least mid-September, visitors can rent games to play in the field.
