Flashback from a decade ago: Farkle debut

For our final flashback for the weekend we’re going all the way back to 2010 and the now-defunct Minneapolis Anime Convention. In addition to the one and only playing of High Rollers (which wasn’t filmed) we also debuted a game that would continue strong for the rest of my convention run. In three parts, here’s the debut of Farkle!

We’ll see you next week for some more blasts from the past. In the meantime, stay safe and wash your hands!


“Virtual” conventions during pandemic

Hi, everyone!

This weekend saw quite a few “virtual” conventions where folks live streamed panels and other convention staples, since large physical gatherings are currently banned most places for obvious and essential reasons.

Just wanted to give a heads up that, with this becoming a bit of a trend in convention circles, if anyone is interested in utilizing my game show software for such an endeavor, I’m running a sale in my Etsy shop. All game show software is currently 15% off. Sale will likely stay in place for the foreseeable future.

Head to http://greggosgameshows.etsy.com if you’re interested. Thanks for looking! Next weekend we’ll flash back to some more game shows from conventions past.

Stay safe and wash your hands!

Flashback from Zenkaikon 2018: Sale of the Century

Here’s another flashback video for your entertainment. I’m going to be showing videos from conventions that have been canceled or postponed this year due to the pandemic. Today’s video is a really exciting game of Sale of the Century, from Zenkaikon 2018. I hope you enjoy it!

Flashback: Password from Colorado Anime Fest

With conventions being cancelled due to the pandemic, I thought it might be nice to go back and revisit game shows I hosted at those conventions. Hopefully it will give you a nice diversion for an hour or so.
Here’s Password from Colorado Anime Fest 2017, with guest stars Matthew Mercer and Ciarán Strange:

In Memoriam: Robert Axelrod

Today I’m sad to hear about the passing of Robert Axelrod. I got to know him on the convention circuit; he loved participating in my games and was always asking when we were going to be at a show together.

As a tribute to him, here’s some video of games where Robert appeared as a celebrity guest. You’ll be missed, Robert.
