Gen Con Retrospective: Friends, Photos, and ENnies!

Deadlands Noir - Silver ENnie WinnerWeird Wars: Rome - Judges' Spotlight ENnie WinnerGen Con 2014 was a great time for us. One of the most satisfying things from any convention is getting to catch up with our friends in the gaming community and supporters of Savage Worlds, and this year was no different. To those of you who came to any of our panels, the Pinnacle Seminar, or by the booth, thanks. To those of you who didn’t, be sure to see us next time we’re around.

In this age, seeing friends means taking pictures. Some of those photos you can find in our feeds on Twitter, Google+, and Facebook. If you’ve got pictures of us out there, please be sure to tag them so we can find them, too!

Oh, I almost forgot—we won a couple of ENnies while we were there, too! Weird Wars: Rome won a judges spotlight award, and Deadlands Noir won the Silver ENnie for Best Setting.

We weren’t the only Savage Worlds winners, though: Sneak Attack Press’ Broken Earth also won a Silver ENnie, and Modiphius’ Achtung! Cthulhu: Keeper’s Guide to the Secret War won two! Congratulations to all the ENnies winners!

We’re already looking forward to next year (with more on that in the next article)!
