The First Ever Game of Hobomancer
Every game starts out as an idea. And before that idea is ready to be turned into a book and published, it has to be tested. That’s why the Hex Games staff gathered together in Nashville back in May 2010, during the Great Tennessee Flood, and played the first ever game of Hobomancer (2013 ENnie Silver Award winner Best Electronic Product). Fortunately they recorded the game session, and it is now available for download, absolutely free of charge.
When this game session took place there had been some general conversation and brainstorming about Hobomancer, but nothing was set in stone. As you listen, you can hear key concepts of the game being invented during play. You can also hear six people having a lot of fun.
Leighton Connor ran the game, and Josh Burnett, Ian Engle, Steve Johnson, Carter Newton, and Jason Whisman played in it.
Ride the rails. Have more fun!
