So I thought this was supposed to be out for GenCon or at least around that time frame but I haven't heard anything about this game other than on the PHG podcast a while back. There is almost no information here on the Geek, I haven't heard updates on the PHG podcast in months and I don't see anything on their site....what's going on?

The few details I head about the game play have me very interested.

I've played it! But then again, I am one of the creators of the show.

Just jumping in to say Plaid Hat sent us the final paper prototype about a month ago, and I couldn't be happier with it. The art is beautiful and makes us desperately want to do an animated version of the show, and the gameplay is wonderfully thematic while have a nice medium-weight set of mechanics.

It plays sort of like... King of Tokyo meets Lords of Waterdeep... with video games and some other twists.

Anyways, the paper prototype has been a big hit with my fiancee's family, and my friends, and the people at the office. I think the fans of the show will love it, but honestly think its a wonderful medium-weight / gateway game.

Can't wait for people to play it.

Hello,

I am quite sure that the game will be Demoed at GenCon, and I can't wait to try it out. If they have it ready for sale, I'm definitely picking it up.

BTW--I had never heard of VGHS until Plaid Hat mentioned it and I am very glad they did, because I am now a huge fan (and supporter Season 3) of the show.

Glad you like the show. Season 3 will be nuts.

Just got word from Plaid Hat that the games are printing and they are sending us a retail copy now so we can play it. We should have a video of it up in the next 2 weeks or so.

I also can't wait for Season 3. The game will help bridge the gap perhaps.

Hello VGHS and Plaid Hat Fans,

Look on iTunes or YouTube (RocketJump Channel) for the Facerocker Podcast #51, where they discuss (and show on YouTube) the VGHS Board Game.

Looking VERY cool.

Well, it is unlisted for some reason, and so I couldn't feel right linking to it for that reason, but it showed up in my subscription list. If you are subscribed to their channel, look at the 'Facerocker Podcast" playlist episode #51.

I am a subscriber. Did not show up. But was available if I specifically went into the playlist section. Weird. Thanks for your help.
