Game Night Photos

ASTRA hosted a game night on Monday evening in which several publishers had the opportunity to teach and play games with their retailer customers. The format was a bit different than similar conventions, as it was organized in a sort of round-robin fashion where participants had only 10 minutes to learn a game and maybe play a few rounds. Below are some photos from the game night gathering.
