SaltCON 2017 Recap of Meeple Nation Events
Another SaltCON is in the books. This year, our fearless show runners brought in over 1350 people to play board games. The space was fantastic and the con ran smooth and fluid, thanks to the hard work of the SaltCON organizers, Dale Gifford, Sean MacDonald, Dan Naylor, David McClelland, and Geoffrey Briggs. They really put on a great show, bringing in more vendors and game giveaways every year.
Next, we ran a Family Feud style game show with 11 teams of 4 and some audience members. The teams guess the top three answers from a poll we ran on the Internet. The questions involved Star Wars droids, gateway games, food not allowed at a game table, and many more board game themed topics.
Finally, we ran a game of Deception: Murder at SaltCon. We took the fantastic game Deception: Murder in Hong Kong by Grey Fox Games, and made a live action version. Ryan collected a bunch of props as weapons and evidence and let each player hold the items (instead of using the cards).
Thanks to all the players of our live games this year. We wouldn’t do it without you, because you all made it great.
We played some board games, too, over the weekend, but this post is already long, so we’ll save that report for another day. Here are two other reports of the con: Trent from The Board Game Family and Okie on his blog cucullus non facit monachum.
Until next SaltCon, we’ll see you at the game table.
