I paid a visit to MOAB yesterday. It's the first time it's been held since 2019, so it was nice to be back.
Most of it was competitions. There didn't seem to be as many traders present either, although those that were there were interesting enough including Aetherworks, Olympian Games, Eureka, Slave 2 Gaming and a company which distributes independent games. There was one demo game (it looked like Team Yankee, maybe, but I didn't look that closely), and a couple of participation games as well, both of which were card/boardgames.
I played one of these; a card-drafting game called Cosmos: Empires.
Here's the game at the end.
I played a second game later in the day, and was simply lucky not to come last in that.
Cosmos: Empires is a funded kickstarter, and will be available early next year.
I also played a card-game on the independent stall called Viewpoint: Revisioned, which is part of a series called the Viewniverse. It was amusing, but I only played two-player and I'm not sure the cut-throat nature of it worked so well. Maybe because it was my throat getting cut.
Anyway, this year's MOAB also coincided with the start of my Frocktober campaign for this year. Here's a taster:
