Appearance Announcement – Playthrough Gaming Convention 2018

UPDATE! We recorded the panel and you can listen to the audio here!


Hey hey! I am so excited to announce that I will be co-hosting a panel at Playthrough Gaming Convention at the Raleigh Convention Center in Raleigh, NC! Join me and fellow game enthusiasts Jim Price (The Board Game Bandit), and Dara Chalice on Sunday, February 18th, from 2 – 3 pm, as we discuss games that we’ll still be playing years from now and ones we won’t. What games will you be playing 5 years from now? Its obvious, but I’ll still be playing (Settlers of) Catan.

Please note: panel attendance is free and you do not need a ticket to attend, however you will need access to the convention and can buy your tickets here (20% off at time of publication!):

Hope to see you there!
