Some photos of Major Fun Award winners being played at GenCon:
Giant sized Tsuro by Calliope.
The Calliope booth was HOPPIN! It’s a great group of people who are producing some of the most beautiful and fun games out there. Several of their new games have been nominated for Major Fun and are up for review.
Pandemic is a personal favorite of mine and I was a little envious of the board these guys were playing on. I am a small enough person that I will envy the newest, flashiest edition.
From right to left: Mike (Westfield, IN) and Jason (Indianapolis) and Michael (Las Angeles, CA).
Lemming Mafia from Mayfair is silly an cute and combines lots of cool elements as your lemming race to the end of the pier in concrete galoshes.
From right to left: Andy (Berkeley, CA) and Robby and Mithila (both from Indianapolis).
Hoot Owl Hoot is a very basic cooperative game from Peaceable Kingdom that is geared for younger players. Lots of cooperative games are very complicated but Hoot Owl Hoot strips the experience down to a few clear mechanics and proves to be very exciting.
Pictured is Debbie and her two kids Aurora and David from Oak Park, IL.
And finally Cross Ways from USAopoly. Great strategy game for lots of people or even just two people.
Paul (Spartanburg, SC) is learning the game from one of Major Fun’s own play testers, Heather (Indianapolis).
