GEN CON 2016 PREVIEW

I’m going to Gen Con!  YAY!  It’s the biggest game convention here in the United States.  I went last year, and had an awesome experience.  This will be the first here that I will be reporting there as a member of the press!  So I plan on taking tons of photos, and hopefully take some video.

There will be several games premiering at Gen Con.  I hope to come home with several of them as well, but my budget is limited, but maybe I’ll get some press copies from some people for me to do full reviews when I get back.

I went over to boardgamegeek.com to look over their GenCon preview.  It’s kind of hard to read for me.  Some games on the preview are only going to be demoed there, while some are being released.  So I’m making my own preview to just include which games will be premiering there.  Ones that you can actually purchase there.

Now, some of these games may not make it due to conflicts and other things, so take this list with a grain of salt.  Also, there will most likely will be more games than this being released that just haven’t been announced yet (like the new Ninja Turtles game maybe?).

First I’ll list all of the games being released in alphabetical order, then I’ll list game expansions.  I also plan on updating this list daily, so if there are any additions or changes made in then next couple of weeks, I will update this list as soon as I can.

Here is the list:

Here are a list of game expansions being released at Gen Con:
