DESCRIPTION: A primary reason that board gaming is such an entertaining hobby is that it fosters and encourages socializing with other people. To that end, this week Erin and Ryan talk about this year’s BGG Con, then discuss some of the many online communities available to gamers.

- It’s 2017, which means it’s time for all sorts of annual predictions about games and the gaming industry. Are they wild guesses or educated methodical extrapolations of notable trends in the industry? We’ll see! But both Erin and Ryan dive into what some of those may be.
- We also recap our 2016 predictions (see Vox episode 108 for the full rundown) to see how close we came during what can only be described as an unpredictable year.
