Oomba posts GenCon coverage preview

Oomba has created a video teaser showing off the coverage they’ll be doing at GenCon in a couple weeks.

And don’t forget, TGN will be there, too. If you’d like to talk to us while there, e-mail me at polar_bear@tabletopgamingnews.com and we can schedule in a time.


From the post:

Irvine, CA-based Oomba, Inc. is revolutionizing the way we compete by providing event organizers, participants and fans full access to the latest social and organizational tools via innovative web and mobile apps found at www.oomba.com.

It is time to show the world what the future of competition looks like, and this year Oomba will be on a mission at the Best Four Days in Gaming™.

For the first time in Gen Con history, Oomba will be streaming the entire convention live, August 14th-17th. The sights and sounds will be on full display at Oomba.tv™, where you can check out every tournament, watch insider interviews, and enjoy behind-the-scenes action.

Fans will be also able to watch Oomba’s sleek new tournament apps run multiple Mayfair and Cryptozoic game tournaments, including the convention’s main event, the US World Championship Qualifier for The Settlers of Catan®!

To top it all off, Oomba will be making an official attempt at the Guinness World Record™ for the largest Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock tournament EVER! There will be tons of prizes, including a new Macbook for the last player standing. Swing by our two-story HQ in Hall F (codenamed: The Tournament Hall) to sign-up!
