Tucked away in the furthest back corner of TwitchCon, there‚Äôs a Blockbuster booth. Yes that Blockbuster: the mostly-defunct video rental store. What is this ode to entertainment‚Äôs now-distant past doing at a convention dedicated to the cutting edge of its present? Advertising an officially-licensed Blockbuster board game, it turns out. It‚Äôs a ‚Äė90s-stolgia party game with multiple configurations centered around‚ÄĒwhat else?‚ÄĒremembering movies. They went the extra mile with the TwitchCon display, though; the VCR boxes have actual tapes in them. I checked.
