Since I forgot my Switch like an idiot, the weekend is most certainly not for local Mario Party, The World Ends With You, or any of the cooler games I really wanted. Still, there's always board games.
I'll be at PAX for most of the three days (flying out mid-Sunday) and, fingers crossed, there'll be some solid board gaming. I don't think any of the big surprises from Essen will be there - the event runs until the 29th Australian time, so retailers are still trialling everything on show and working out what they can jam into their checked luggage back home.
But there are some big board games I've been waiting to try. A friend bought Spirit Island, and while we haven't given their copy a run yet I'm guessing someone will be playing it at PAX this year.
Similarly, I'd love some games of Gaia Project. It's another game that takes some time and can be difficult to get a group together for. But at PAX? Shouldn't be an issue.
For those not at PAX, Red Dead seems like the obvious choice. There's also the Fallout 76 beta for those on Xbox. And there's lots to catch up on as well: new DLC for Spider-Man, more stuff in Odyssey, you get the drill.
What are you playing this weekend?
