Mo Rocca recently hosted a great little segment on CBS about his introduction to the world of board games. Interestingly, a lot of this piece was filmed at Gen Con last year. I even recognize the space where they are playing, but I never saw the camera crew. Oh well, I guess I was a little busy myself.
He covers some good ground, and Scott Nicholson of Board Games with Scott fame also makes an appearance as the expert, which is pretty darn cool. We’re always big fans of anything that exposes our hobby to more people, especially if Mo Rocca is involved. The cameraman does capture a lot of footage of the “interesting characters” at Gen Con, but overall this piece does put focus on board gaming in a positive way. You can check out the video here.
