The State of Games, Episode 71 – The One About GrandCon 2014

Posted by on Sep 25, 2014 in Articles of Note, Conventions, Game News, Interviews, State of Games | 0 comments

stateofgameslogonewCon season is winding down, but there was one last little hurrah to make before the long, cold winter: GrandCon in Grand Rapids, Michigan. GR is a hotbed of boardgaming enthusiasts and designers, much like the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area – plus, they also have great beer, just like we do! So despite the 12 hour drive, it was pretty much a win/win situation with board games, beers, and some of the best darn people in the hobby.
