Board Game Publisher: Fireside Games
Anne-Marie De Witt from Fireside Games talks about a Q1 2013 release in the works titled Dead Panic. I like how blasé we both are about the imminent threat of zombie attacks. "Oh, yes, the zombies. Them again. Frightfully pesky buggers, aren't they?"


Board Game: Hot Rod Creeps
• Designer Matt Hyra covers his Hot Rod Creeps from Cryptozoic Entertainment with the game itself kind of hiding between me and Matt while we speak. Sorry! Aldie has already said we're likely to have a booth at Gen Con in 2013 to organize these video presentations better and show off the games in more detail.
