Gen Con is fully underway now. The first day went by in a flash. The energy in the air was palpable. Everyone I've talked to agrees that this year is much busier than last. When the doors open, there's a huge rush as all the eager gamers head to the various booths in order to get the latest and greatest. One booth that attracted a lot of attention was CMON's. With lots of new games available for the first time, the line quickly wrapped around the whole double-booth that they have.
Blood Rage, the viking board game from Eric Lang, sold out in just 2 hours. Everyone was looking to pick up a copy. The Grizzled, Queen's Necklace, and Rum & Bones were among the other games being snatched up left and right. And you saw all the Dark Age releases they had with them at the show.
Joe-Nathan, the video guy for CMON, put together a video showing off some highlights from the first day. Check it out.
Stay tuned for more from them at Gen Con. With all the special guests that are at the booth, you'll want to stop by and see what's going on. Don't miss out.
