Episode 39 – KantCon 2017

We’ve got three topic categories this time, though KantCon 2017 (a tabletop convention we helped sponsor) is the highlight.

Pinball: We open with a very brief Dutch Pinball update. Then, it’s on to the gameplay footage of Star Wars as presented by Dead Flip. Finally, we dedicate a sizable chunk of time on the recently concluded Pinball Done Quick and the announcement that the donations made to benefit Doctors Without Borders would be refunded due to a conflict between the official rules and the announced plans for the prize drawing.

Video Games: There’s just one topic, Overwatch’s new character: Doomfist.

Tabletop: It’s all KanCon 2017. Dennis and Tony played four games which get attention: a World War II miniatures game, Call of Cthulhu, Dungeons & Dragons 5e, and Z Gate Crashers.
