Best Games at Gen Con 2021
Paste Magazine has posted a roundup of their favorite games that were at Gen Con this year. "After a two-year absence due to the COVID-19 pandemic, board game convention Gen Con returned to Indianapolis earlier this month with a smaller show. Postponed by eight weeks, attendance was capped at half of the previous maximum, and most publishers from outside of the United States and Canada ended up skipping the event. As an attendee at my fifth Gen Con, however, I’d say it was a rousing success given the circumstances."
