Overview: Legacy games are a new addition to the board game world. Part campaign, part RPG, part board game, Legacy games take the Groundhog Day nature of traditional board games and add evolving gameplay and unlockable content. The result is a highly narrative series of games where no two groups will have the same experience. Rob Daviau, creator of the Legacy format will talk about the three published games in this genre ('Risk Legacy', 'Pandemic Legacy: Season 1', and 'SeaFall'), what games have been inspired by it ('Pathfinder Adventure Card Game', 'Fabled Fruit', 'Mechs vs. Minions'), and peek at what might be coming with this form of games.
