Connecticon 2017 - Yanaguana Games

Posted by Rob Kalajian in games

This year was the first year Connecticon actually had booths available for tabletop publishers. In previous years companies could demo in the open gaming area, but never really had a reserved space or real “official” presence. One of those companies who had a booth this year was Yanaguana Games, a Rhode Island-based game company and publisher of Stir-Fry Eighteen and Shipload o’Gold.

Re-ChordYanaguana’s Marshall Britt was demoing his new game, Re-Chord, a guitar themed area control game hitting Kickstarter at the end of the summer. I actually had a chance to play the game for the first time this year at CT-FIG, but it has further been refined as Marshall gets it ready for the Kickstarter campaign. Play revolves around placing guitar picks of different colors on a fretboard, trying to form chords and get the most of your color on each fret. Each color pick has a different ability that lets you manipulate other picks on the board. Players can score even more points by playing the same chord as a previously played one for a Re-Chord score.

It’s a fantastic and original game that feels fresh and is tons of fun. I’ll have a full preview of the game ready for when it hits Kickstarer.
