Did you know the Triangle is home to some amazing board game designers? Join us on the 4th Wednesday of every month to meet a game designer and help them test their new game. Other board games will be out for regular play.

If the 4th Wednesday falls near a holiday, please check the calendar for updates.

Tonight’s Featured Designer: Dave Conklin

Dave Conkin has lived in the Triangle area since 1997.  He has been married for 30 years and has four adult children. By day he is a VP of Engineering for a local start-up SaaS company, but his passion is tabletop gaming and game design.  Part of the Game Designers of North Carolina Group, he just launched his first Kickstarter game through 25th Century Games.

About the Game: Blazon

Blazon is a card drafting, puzzly, tableau builder game set in the world of medieval heraldry where players create their own shields.

The game allows you to take on the role of a herald, carefully selecting the right elements for your shield board, and earning distinctions through shrewd play.  Earn your rank through the accumulation of prestige as you blazon your shield to distinguish yourself among your peers and be crowned the King of Arms.
