Games You Can't Play
PAX West 2023

Games disappear. Some forever. There are a lot of reasons for this across PC games tabletop even sports. Some can be saved but many simply can't. There are games that are just "gone." Even with all the efforts to preserve and remember games the void can still claim them. Join the GeekNights crew as we explore the how and why of games disappearing from this Earth. Along the way we'll dive into several fascinating examples of games you should play but you can't.

Presented at #PAX West 2023 on Sunday, Sept 3 at 3:30pm in the Blue Morpho Theatre.
