The lights are on
Even in the face of the growing prominence of video games and other form of digital entertainment, it may come as a surprise that the world of tabletop gaming continues to expand. Look no further than Fantasy Flight Games, a leading publisher of board, card, dice, and role-playing games; the company has seen skyrocketing growth over the last decade as friends and families seek opportunities to connect across the table – laughing, strategizing, and playing a new wave of complex interactive tabletop games.
We visited the Fantasy Flight headquarters in Roseville, MN to learn more about the company, and how hobby gaming continues to find a place in the ever-changing entertainment landscape. Check out our video profile tour in the video below, watch our dedicated preview of Descent: Second Edition, and share your thoughts and experiences with hobby gaming in the comments below.

CIV 5 the board game is THE best table top game I've ever played
I found these guys through their Gears of War board game I recommend it to anyone who has played the video game-it even has a Horde mode!-I plan on buying more of thier games in the future
This is kind of funny. I got the Game of Thrones card game box set this past Friday and just today realized FFG is based in Roseville, MN. And now this article shows up at GI.
I haven't done alot of table top board games, but I do love the Arkham Horror sets. I'll have to check out that Descent video, I'm always curious to see some of the other great board games that are out there.
Not as good as Risk.
They also just released the Star Wars: Edge of the Empire beta. I haven't had that much un in a long time.
