Great Big Table Talk: R&R Games President and CEO Frank DiLorenzo at Gen Con 2014

At Gen Con, we were very fortunate to spend some time with game publishers and designers.

In another of those Gen Con conversations, we spoke with R&R Games' President and CEO, Frank DiLorenzo. R&R Games is known for great gateway games, popular party games (like the Times Up series), and heavier strategy games like Coal Baron and New Haven. They are also the publisher of 2013 Spiel des Jahres (German Game of the Year) winner, Hanabi. We spent some time talking about a wide swath of games offered by R&R Games and had a great time.

The R&R Games titles that we mentioned or discussed in this episode include:
Times Up

Get a Life
Guess the Mess (Board Game Geek Link)
Strike a Pose
Hearts of Attraction
Plucking Pairs
Hide and Seek Safari
Flea Circus

Igor: The Monster Making Game
Igor: The Life of the Party
R&R Games' version of Deluxe Hanabi - Coming in October
Coal Baron
New Haven
Home Stretch

***Great Big Table is a late-night conversation between two Midwestern geeks with dreams of world domination through board games. It's not a great plan, but it's our plan and we're sticking to it. Join as we plot to put a meeple in every pot- or at least on every table. We slipped the bonds of our robot masters, so the only opinions represented here are our own. We are however in league with Amazon, so a percentage of every purchase made through our links goes into our onshore accounts (thanks!). Some games have been provided by publishers for review while we picked up others for a buck or two at a thrift store or yard sale. Others are from our own collections or games we played with friends and strangers. You should be proud of yourself for reading all this small print- we are!
