BoardGameGeek will livestream game demonstrations from the 2017 GAMA Trade Show in Las Vegas on Wednesday, March 15 and Thursday, March 16.

We have a jam-packed schedule, and to feature as many publishers as possible, some of the demonstrations will be brief. I realize that will frustrate some who want more details, but we're aiming for high-level overviews, with more details to come once rulebooks are published or the publisher visits us again during the 2017 Origins Game Fair when things are far more relaxed and we have five days to fill.

Many publishers will announce new titles at GTS, and our current broadcast schedule includes placeholders like "(something)" and "(multiple titles)". Times are PDT, which is GMT-7.

Note that this schedule is subject to change. Not every publisher at GTS is represented above, but we kept expanding our broadcast schedule — which went from 10:00 to 17:00 both days in 2016 — to accommodate whoever we could and I think we're at the limit here.

I arrive at GTS Tuesday, March 14, and I'll spend that day looking at whatever I can in the exhibit room since I'll have zero time to do so during the actual exhibit room hours on Wednesday and Thursday. You can follow images and news from GTS on the BGG Twitter feed (#gts2016) or wait to see what I post later in BGG News. We intend to post the game demo videos on their respective individual BGG pages before the end of March 2017.

Update: We will be live streaming simulcast on Twitch and YouTube.

Lots of cool stuff.

Surpised at the number of arcade games from IDW, centipede missile command and what not. I soubt they will be good but am somehow intrigued. Same goes for all the fighting games from Jasco.

Button men somehow piques my interest.

Aeg: no mention of Sakura Arms? :/

Four games in twenty minutes isn't enough for you?!

More seriously, in 2016, Todd from AEG showed up with a huge stack of games and we did what we could in the time available. Maybe he'll do the same again next week...

No Yamatai?

Or is it too close to the release that they don't want to discuss it?

Eric: fair point Unicornus Knights does have my interest. I was mainly worried that they might have dropped it since it is rarly a good sign when publishers don't push an upcoming game. If I recall correctly it was your number one anticipated game for gencon, did you ever get to play it? Did you like it?

Monolith will be going to Kickstarter with Batman: The Board Game, and GAMA is largely a show for pitching upcoming titles to retailers, so I'm not surprised the game wouldn't be there. No sense rubbing their crowdfunded nature in retailers' faces...

I'll try to recall that for Wednesday morning!

No idea. We have a limited amount of time, and ANA chose these titles from its stable.

Ugh! Board game publishers have finally found my weakness: 80's video game nostalgia.

+1 for 80's nostalgia. I rather hope these are fast paced dice/card games. I could imagine good things in that design space for these IPs.

I think that means the livestream won't start for a couple of hours.

That is correct. We start the feed in 75 minutes from me writing this note — although apparently internet service is spotty at Bally's right now.

Thanks, Eric! Is GAMA still talking about moving to family-friendlier Reno?

I can't speak to Reno's friendliness to families, but yes, the GAMA Trade Show is moving to Reno in 2018. GAMA has invited retailers and others out to the new facilities to show them where things will be happening next year.

Please stop autoplaying this on the BGG front page. Doing this is not friendly.

EMPHATICALLY AGREED. PLEASE STOP THE AUTO-PLAY, especially with full audio. It is incredibly obnoxious, especially since it runs advertisements, even when we have purchased ad-block with our BGG donations. Not cool.

Edit. When I navigated back to the home page after posting here, a Jack-in-the-Box commercial ran. Seriously??

Edit 2. Commercial for Sour Patch Kids candy.

The ads are coming from Twitch and their feed, not from BGG. Your BGG donations have nothing to do with that. Now, I agree that auto play on the front page is annoying, but the twitch feed itself won't stop showing ads.

I get that, but the Admins should disable the auto-play feature so we aren't subjected to those ads involuntarily. If we choose to watch the feed, fine. But by configuring the live feed to auto-play, it back-doors in those commercials. The Sour Patch kids one (which has played a couple of times now), starts out with a really obnoxious horn blast. Not ideal for the office.
