Conclave of Gamers 2016 Touch Tables: Episode 004

More interviews from Conclave 2016 – this episode goes into the Touch Table games we played at the event.  While not a replacement for board games, these were great to do a quick set up and play and very easy to teach more intensive games, with some fun original stuff that merged board games and video games in a social environment.

Thanks to the guys at http://darkinfinitysoftware.com/ for taking time with us.
