Omaha is at the start of a national trend. Soon, board game bars and cafes will open throughout America, offering access to hundreds or even thousands of games for a small fee. Teams will form, and leagues, and a board-game craze will sweep the country. There will be YouTube channels exclusively devoted to watching skilled board game players compete with each other, and the best will go pro. Board games will start to find the sort of following that video games now enjoy, and will benefit from the intimacy required in playing them face to face, instead of the anonymity of compteting against strangers online.
