GEN CON 2023: DGM Walks the Con [EVENT/NEWS]

While Gen Con 2023 got off to a wild start this year with a $300k Magic card heist on Wednesday  and a near riot involving the Disney Lorcana release Thursday morning, we started our coverage of the show a little later Thursday—after the hubbub had died down!

So much to see at Gen Con this year! DGM reporter, Megan Renee, takes you through Gen Con in our exploration video. The new style we used this year allows you to feel more like you’re actually there with us, as we see overviews of things, and then zoom into segments of tutorials just like you might if you were actually there. While we’ve credited the different games we feature in the video, our favorite titles that we saw this year are linked below, as well. (No financial compensation has been provided to DGM for coverage. They’re simply the things that caught our eye and that we enjoyed this year!)

Links to some of our favorite things that impressed us in this video:

Hot Banana Games: Steam Up: A Feast of Dim Sum
