For those of you who want to hear more about the game design industry, but can’t see the panels here and there, this is your chance to attend a great board game conference at home or in the office. Yes. It’s actually a scam!
As for the physical part of the show, the first annual desktop network A two-day event this weekend in Snowbird, Utah. June 8-9, 2018. Starting with a successful Kickstarter campaign to raise money, the show aims to be an annual tradition. The show aims to bring together the best talent in game design and development to discuss emerging trends and best practices and hone their skills. Tabletop Network is a collaboration between Jeff Beck, Tim Fowers, and Geoff Engelstein, and the 2018 Slate has a great collection of speakers, including dozens of speakers including James Ernest, Rob Daviau, Tom Lehmann, Raph Koster and more. This conference is a reminder of the great value the Game Development Conference (GDC) has to offer.
The League of Gamemaker is a partner in this conference, and I am delighted to be present and speaking on behalf of many of my colleagues on this site in my lectures on building communities around testing games.
Again, there is still time to earn by attending one of the final virtual passes.
Watch it live!
I love the way this hobby grows and develops and the way meetings like this get so exciting. There I will report what I find, but in the meantime, I hope you join us.
