Time for another episode of The BoardGameGeek Show! We've been publishing them roughly every two weeks on BGG's main YouTube channel, and on Thursday, June 13, we'll livestream The BGG Show from the 2019 Origins Game Fair. If you plan to visit that convention, come say "Hi" to us at booth A104. We'll have been livestreaming from Origins on the BGG Twitch channel for two (of five) days by that point, so we'll likely have some new games to discuss, in addition to talking about the fair itself.

Side note: BGG's Origins 2019 Preview has reached 309 titles (with 43 titles available for preorder and pick-up at the show, and I'm unlikely to add much to it in the final days before the fair opens. I didn't hear from a couple of dozen game publishers that will present, so on Tuesday and Wednesday, June 11-12, I'll survey the hall to see what's on hand that wasn't in the preview.

I'll publish our livestream demo schedule on Monday, June 10 once we book the final stragglers over the weekend. Even so, at this point we nobody scheduled for Sunday, June 16 and only half of Saturday booked. We have so much time at Origins, with so few new games being released there. I'll bring short games to play on camera in a pinch, and we'll undoubtedly book many more guests once we're in Columbus.

As for The BGG Show, we talk about some of the titles we played during BGG.Spring and elsewhen. I played Reiner Knizia's Karate Tomate three times during that show, and I hope to get it to the table again this coming weekend at a neighbor's house. I hope you have game plans as well, and if not, perhaps all you need to do is ask. Sometimes I've felt like I don't have game partners nearby, but once I start talking with people, I almost always find someone willing to play something — and I have a huge range of games on my "want to play" list, so I have lots of choices to offer when that happens. Frenemy Pastry Party, anyone?
