Gencon 2012 Aftermath: Fantasy Flight Games
At our first Gencon (or maybe it was our second?) the Game of Thrones CCG debuted, and my brother, well-read of Ice and Fire, bee-lined right for FFG's booth to pick up a starter or two from the original set of the game to give it a shot. I had never really played a CCG before (unless you count sort of playing Overpower as a kid, which I do), but I was game for it, and picked up a Stark starter. It was glorious, and it got me addicted to the game for years, essentially following along with it through out college.
Since then, FFG has released tons of goodies of all sorts of game types. Visiting their booth every year is still and will hopefully forever be a highlight of the show. That's really the main reason I've saved them for last. FFG did not disappoint this year and brought the goods with them. I hope you enjoy the pictures and enjoyed all my Gencon coverage this year!
