Gravitas Ventures has released a trailer for their new documentary, GAMEMASTER, focused on the board game industry, and the makers in it. Check out the trailer above.
Gamemaster dives into the world of the board game industry and hones in on five-game designers who have had big success or are trying to breakthrough. Talking heads include Klaus Teuber (The Settlers of Catan), Matt Leacock (Pandemic,) and Elan Lee (Exploding Kittens). The film is directed by Charles Mruz and produced by Jimmy Nguyen, Wally Schrass, Kristopher Wile, Jason Rose, and Jennifer Tocquigny.
Not unlike vinyl records, board games have definitely experienced a resurgence in popularity over the years. And during this pandemic, I’m sure there’s definitely been a spike as families look for things to do together in quarantine. But if a doc on board games sounds boring to you, one thing that interests me about this is what looks to be the journey for those involved.
Dreams, the chase, and seeing those dreams become a reality. It’s definitely something I look forward to.
GAMEMASTER releases on July 7th. Even with theatres reopening, there’s no word if this will have a simultaneous VOD release too. But what do you think? Drop your thoughts on the Fuzzybug Facebook Page here.
