Gen Con 2014 – Games Played

Here are the game stats from Games on Demand at Gen Con 2014. Thanks to Jeremy Friesen and our many great hosts for keeping track of the information between seating times and doing the data entry after the show.

We had many great games this year, and the breadth of games that ran is always more exciting to see than the high number of sessions for the most popular games. Many of the games are late-playtests of new games or hacks of other systems that were combined with that games’ numbers. You can expect to see these again more prominently at next year’s show!

It’s also worth noting that while Monsterhearts and it’s variants had the highest number of sessions this year, adding Fate Accelerated Edition and Fate Core together would put them at the top. It was a big year for Fate all around!

First up, the daily and hourly stats of games run and players seated. In total we ran around 310 games for 1452 players.
