BGB Volume 102 – Q&A with Scott Alden, Lincoln Damerst and Nikki Pontius

Gamex 2013 came and went earlier this summer. We were happy to host Scott Alden, the man behind and the convention for its fans, out to hang with us for the weekend. We played many games, enjoyed his company, and were happy to have Lincoln Damerst, one of the main BGG guys these days and host of the hit series of board game videos GameNight! and his lovely wife, Nikki Pontius, a Queen Games representative and producer of many a Kickstarter campaign, join us as well. We talk about many subjects from game cons to game libraries, Spiel, Kickstarters and a whole lot about GameNight!

This is part one of the conversation. Part two will come out next week when I return from San Diego ComicCon.

Boardgamegeek.con is November 20-24

For many of us who can’t make the trip to Germany each year, BGG.con is our way to get exposure to the latest board games to come out at Spiel. I’ll be there in Dallas this year, as I usually am, to join in the fun. We chat quite a lot about it on the show.

Queen Games

Nikki Pontius is a Queen Games rep responsible for a lot of the content of their Kickstarter campaigns and more. I personally adore the quality of Queen’s products and enjoy a lot of their games. Queen has been a generous supporter of Strategicon conventions and we are happy to have most of their titles in our library.

During the show, Antoine told us the story of how Hanabi came into being – and noted his incredible affection for the game. In case you missed it, here’s the show again for your listening pleasure. I’ve also included some articles around the web about the game and its big win.
