Interesting. Not an Arkham Horror fan eh? I am kidding.
Our art does not try to have an RPG focus. In fact, you are the first person that has ever suggested that it does. What we are trying to capture is the old school feel of early gaming products. It was these products, such as D&D, which birthed all the games that you and I now love.
But, I get your point.
We are certainly not trying to promote one type of game over another. And when it comes to news, there is just more news on the RPG side of things than compared to really any other genre. That is just the reality.
And, we did have some big board game news this year. For example, we got Arcane Wonders to come. They were by far our biggest publisher represented at our Con. Not only that, but they sold copies of Sheriff on Nottingham at our Con before the game was even released. We had some of our game store exhibitors buy copies from them for this very reason.
Beyond that, for 2015, we have at least three board game specific special guests lined up. Stay tuned on that as we will be announcing that soon.
Finally, we cannot control what games are submitted to us by you all to run at Gamehole Con. We would like to see more variety as well. We did much better with this this year than last. We hope that tons of board games get submitted for 2015 to match our strong RPG presence.
Anyway, thanks for the post.
