Amazing new DCC RPG Cover!

It’s no surprise that I love Goodman Games’ DCC RPG, so when they mentioned that a new Limited Edition cover would be coming, I was pretty excited. Then I SAW the cover. I thought it was simply amazing. Doug Kovacs has created a wonderful image that sent my imagination soaring. Seeing it in person at GenCon was quite a treat. Having my wife buy me the original for our Anniversary was outstanding. I’m just waiting for it to come back from the framing shop so I can show it off. When I get it back, I’ll post some pics.

Harley Stroh and Doug Kovacs at GenCon 2012, with my Anniversary Gift!

Now, that cover is up for Pre-Order and I can’t wait to get my copy. If you have hesitated on buying DCC RPG, now is the time! Not only is there a new printing with errata and an index added, you get this sweet new cover as well. It was also announced yesterday that it is in the Top 5 Best-Selling RPG’s of 2012. Pretty impressive. Below is the image from the Goodman Games site.

GenCon Recap Part 4: The Finale.

So there I was. GenCon is happening all around me. I’m getting some good gaming in. I’m walking back from playing Super Dungeon Explore and I see…The Dungeon Bastard! That dude produces some pretty cool web videos. You should check them out.

Over at the Who North America Booth, they had a nice life-size Dalek that was moving and talking. I grabbed a bunch of great stuff there. The Eleven Doctor Set that has all eleven Doctors Micro Figures, a Weeping Angels Playset, also got some stuffed Talking Daleks signed by the current voice actor for the Daleks, Nicholas Briggs (on the left in the photo).

Stayed at the JW Marriott again this year. While I had a great time last year and really enjoyed my stay. This year was much better. I had Trade Day and most of my games in the JW. It is a great place to stay and if the gaming tables occupy available space as much as they did this year, I will be staying there again next year. Top-Notch hotel.

Every year I see Nigel Sade at the Con. Every year we buy stuff from him, bandannas, prints and what have you. He’s a really talented artist and I suggest you check out his work.

This is a statue right in front of the Convention Center. Something about it appeals to me, so I share it here with you.

One of the games I learned about from my time at Trade Day, was this little gem called Pajaggle. We played it while discussing good games for libraries and I fell in love with it. I searched out the booth and grabbed a copy while I was there. Great family game.

This year saw the addition of food trucks outside the Convention Center. Food trucks are all the rage lately and I’ve been wanting to dig into some since I watch The Great Food Truck Race on Food Network. There is also a grilled cheese truck I saw turn in front of me a few months ago and I have been trying to get a sample ever since. I know it’s the Melt Mobile, I know where it hangs out, I just haven’t gone yet. So, at the Con I tried to sample some of the various Trucks’ wares. This picture was taken while waiting for food from Der Pretzel Wagen, I got a Big Helga, I also had some decent pizza from The NY Slice Truck (Pizza is tough for me to like out of state, Connecticut has some of the best pizza in the world Sally’s, Pepe’s, Letizia’s, Colony) and got a nice Glass Bottle Coca-Cola and some cheese popcorn from Scout’s. Lot’s of others I wanted to try, but they were either sold out, or I didn’t have enough time to wait in between games. I hope the food trucks will be back next year, I thought it was a great idea and I’d love to sample more. I followed @IndyFoodTruck on Twitter and was able to find out what trucks were there each day.

  

Next, it looks like I’ll hit Anoycon in December and then GaryCon in March and before ya know it, it will be time to buy badges for GenCon again!

Gaming Updates

Howdy folks!

Hope you all downloaded yourself some Cerebus while I was promoting it. I’ll be back to my regular gaming posts tonight. Coming up: The Final Part of my GenCon Recap, more Home Game stuff,  a review of Crash Games’ Dungeon Heroes, pics of my Super Dungeon Explore paint prep and whatever else I can throw at the wall and see what sticks. Be back later!

GenCon 2012 Recap Part 3.

More of my updated GenCon information. New thoughts, added to the original post are in a nifty Swamp color.

Margaret Weis Productions: Booth: 1519

Marvel Heroic RPG: It’s my understanding, at least from what I have seen on Google+, that this game is actually very good and has some nice mechanics. I love super-heroes and love me some Champions but I prefer to run Marvel or DC heroes in their respective games. I’ve been wanting to just take a look at it, GenCon is where I can do that. “Where is my local FLGS?” you may ask, and I will tell you that we do have one. I will also tell you that I used to own a game-store in the same city. I wish much success to my FLGS, but I know they will never carry the selection I tried to, so, as much as I wish I could just peruse and buy the book at my FLGS, my perusal will have to happen at the Con. Verdict: Want to See. Conclusion: Didn’t search it out too hard. Still sounds cool though.

Mayfair Games: Booth: 431, 443, 643, 732

Star Trek: Catan: Settlers of Catan is just about my favorite board game. If you have never tried it, you really should. It’s quite excellent. I can’t wait to sit on down, shuffle the cards and play some Star Trek: Catan. This, is going to be an epic game. Verdict: Want it! Gotta Have it! Must Buy! It better fit in a suitcase! Conclusion: It would not fit in a suitcase. I will have to buy it locally. It’s hard to resist this one!

Look for Mayfair Van in morning before Dealer’s Room opens  8 – 9:30 a.m. Get a Limited Edition Pin: I want a pin, no swag bag this year so I want this pin. Verdict: I like stuff. Conclusion: I didn’t get one. The van was in the complete opposite spot from where I started my day each morning, so while I saw the cool van, I didn’t get a pin. Below you will see some great pieces Mayfair had laid out in a sit-down and eat area of the convention center over by where the Dealer’s Room is. Each table had a board game like Catan stuck to it, kinda like a big sticker and each table had these pieces on them. It was a fun way to sit and relax, I thought this was a great idea.

Offworld Designs: Booth: 1919

GenCon hat, shirts: One of our favorite things to do at the Con is to find awesome t-shirts. This booth always has some good ones and this year they have the official GenCon swag. I needs me a new hat. Verdict: Must Buy. Conclusion: First year ever I didn’t buy a GenCon shirt (heck, I even bought a red one years ago). I just didn’t. I didn’t like the quality of the hat so I skipped it.

Oni Press: Booth: 2032

Scott Pilgrim: Ironically, I find myself writing this on the two-year anniversary of this movie’s theatrical release (thanks Facebook). I really dig this movie, and I hope I can pick up a copy of the color hardcover so I can read the comic. Yeah, I’ve never read it. Yeah, I used to own a comic and game shop. Verdict: Want to See. Conclusion: Grabbed it and it’s fantastic.

Pinnacle Entertainment and Studio 2 Publishing: Booth: 415, 419

Hell on Earth: Reloaded: Oh, Deadlands. One of my longest running campaigns was Deadlands Classic. Great, absolutely phenomenal game, towards which I am obviously biased. Be that as it may, Shane Hensley has created one of the coolest RPG’s to ever come out IMHO and I am really excited to pick up Hell on Earth: Reloaded. This is going to be my next game of choice to run, along with it’s system, Savage Worlds. I love the mechanics, I love poker chips and cards, I love the setting. I have an RPG that I have been working on, Orcs Among Us!, I recently decided to scrap my original system (2d12!) and instead develop my setting for Savage Worlds. After GenCon and some more games running the system under my belt, I’ll start playing it with my group. Then the real reason for Ide Grac Games will be clear. Verdict: Must Buy! Conclusion: I have done several posts about my experience with the fine Pinnacle products and events I enjoyed. Click on the Deadlands Noir tag to see them all.

 

Visionary Comics‘ Deadlands TPB: Yay comics! I pre-ordered this for a GenCon pickup, I thought that was pretty cool. Looking forward to it! It’s supposed to have some Savage Worlds stuff in it as well. Verdict: Already Bought! Conclusion: Picked up my book and C. Edward Sellner couldn’t have been a nicer guy. Visionary Comics just finished up a Kickstarter for Deadlands: Raven which tells the story of The Reckoners Servitor Raven and it looks to be quite excellent, with extra material added from stretch goals. I’m looking forward to this one.

Q-workshop.com: Booth: 325

Dice: I have to check out this booth every year, not only are they Polish, they have excellent dice. Verdict: Must See. Conclusion: I picked up a D2, D4 and a pair of Pirate D6’s.

 

Rather Dashing Games: Booth: 1849

Four Taverns: Another game I noticed from that Board Game Geek List, I purposely haven’t researched this too much just so I have something to learn about at GenCon. Plus, this booth will be in the Entrepreneurs’ Avenue section of the Dealer’s Hall, which focuses on companies that are new to GenCon. Incidentally, here is another great list. Verdict: Want to Demo. Conclusion: I really only stopped by and picked up a pin and took a couple of photos. The booth was quite busy so I resolved to learn more about the game at a later date. It wasn’t until Sunday that I realized Grant Wilson of Ghost Hunters fame is the Art Director & Vice President of the company. It would have been cool to get a photo, as I know he was at the booth and I’m sure I asked him for the pin I got and didn’t put two and two together.

 

Smirk & Dagger Games: Booth: 1518

Cutthroat Caverns: Fresh Meat: These guys are from Connecticut, so I have to support the home team. Curt Covert used to bring his games into my store and I’d buy them right up. If you haven’t laid your eyes upon Cutthroat Caverns or Run For Your Life, Candyman! then you are missing out on some fun for sure! Verdict: Must See. Conclusion: Booth looked busy and that’s always a good thing.

Soda pop Miniatures w/Cool Mini or Not: Booth: 1431, 1531, 1631

Super Dungeon Explore: My good friend Mike introduced me to this game last year. I’ve been watching it and biding my time, and this year I have some tickets to play on Thursday night. I’m excited to see if I like the game enough to tackle a new group of mini’s,  which I would have to build and paint. I haven’t painted since the store closed and I think I’d like to again. These look like the right way to come back in, along with Caverns of Roxor. Verdict: Have to See. Conclusion: The first game I played at GenCon this year. After my traditional Thursday Dealer’s Room Mania, I played this with my wife and a couple other Con-goers. It was a fun game with nice mechanics, I’m going to buy this game for sure. I picked up The Caverns of Roxor expansion and a Princess Ruby metal fig. Great start of this year’s GenCon Gaming for me. Recommended. 

  

Relic Knights Deluxe Preview Pack: This is the other Soda Pop game that looks good. I’m intrigued by the Anime style of this companies stuff. I’m gonna pick up this little convention pack to check out the game rules. Verdict: Must Buy. Conclusion: I was told printing issues caused the Preview Pack to miss the Con. I picked up a Betty and Lug and should have got the new Black Diamond fig they had, but I was already getting SDE stuff. The Kickstarter just wrapped up and it’s right behind Ogre in Most Funded. I got in an Early Bird slot. I’m going to go Cerci And Star Nebula Corsairs.

-If you like cosplay, stop by their booth from 11a.m. to 1:30 p.m. for a free poster, and get it signed by Marie-Claude Bourbonnais.

 

Starwind Design: Booth: 2006

GenCon Dice Bag: I  hope I like it. I hope it’s worth it. GenCon dice bags have been scare and/or hit/miss over the past few years at Indy. Verdict: Hoping. Conclusion: Sorry, I didn’t think it was too great. Hopes crushed.

Steve Jackson Games/Prolific Games: Booth: 1301

Castellan: I’ve got tickets to play this on Sunday. I’m hoping to like it as I have a good time with quite a few Steve Jackson Games. Plus, the booth is always fun and they have great Cthulhu stuff. Give them exact change. Go ahead. Verdict: Must See. Conclusion: I didn’t play in the game on Sunday as my wife had secured herself a place in the You Too Can Cthuhlu Black Letter Game and I wanted to walk her over to the game and say hi to the You Too guys. If you have never played in one of their games, do it!

Flapjacks and Sasquatches and the Side of Bacon Expansion: From posts on the Board Game Geek site, Prolific Games told me they would be there. I have been looking for this game for forever. Verdict: Must Buy! Conclusion: Oh, it’s mine baby! By the way, please show Prolific Games some support. They have a Kickstarter up for a nice looking family game called Hirelings: The Ascent

Troll & Toad.Com: Booth: 101

I buy stuff from them online now and then. Always had a good experience. I’ll take a look at the booth for sure. Verdict: Must See.Conclusion: Lots of Magic cards. Yup. Lots.

Troll Lord Games: Booth: 709

Castles and Crusades: Great game. I’ll be stopping by. Verdict: Must See. Conclusion: Lots of great stuff to look at.

Wishing Tree Games: Booth: 939

Uncle Chestnut’s Table Gype: Based on a concept by G.K. Chesterton and H.G. Wells, it piques my mind bone. I’ll have to take a look. Verdict: Must See. Conclusion: I got a copy and I’m looking forward to giving it a try.

Wizards of the Coast: Booth: 1401

Dungeon!: Loved it as a kid, and adult. Let’s see if it holds true. Verdict: Must See.

Drow Dice Set: I hope the hunt to get these dice isn’t too insane, I hope I don’t have to jump through hoops to get them, I hope it’s a grab and go situation. Verdict: Hoping. Conclusion: You had to jump through hoops, I didn’t have ten hours of my Con to waste tracking down dice that I wouldn’t use.

Wyrd Miniatures: Booth: 1131

Terraclips: Saw a mention of these online somewhere, just want to stop by the booth and see what they’re all about. Verdict: We’ll See. Conclusion: These look awesome! I have just the game to run through those sewers…

 

Zombie Orpheus Entertainment: Booth: 509

The Gamers, Journey Quest, Gamers III: If you haven’t seen The Gamers, you owe it to yourself. Verdict: Must See.  Conclusion: I’m pretty sure I was sitting next to a couple people filming a scene while I was taking a break at the Con. In any case, highest funded film project on Kickstarter to date! Way to go! 

NEXT:

I have one more GenCon Recap post coming, in the meantime, I want to talk about Cerebus. I shall be back later today most likely.

Next: De Plane, De Plane! and the JW.

GenCon 2012 Recap Part 2.

Part 2 of my GenCon Recap. New information is written in a Swamp color. Photos have been added as well.

Welcome to Episode Deux of my three-part Pre-GenCon babbling, wherein I continue to talk about the booths I want to see.


Eagle & Gryphon Games
:
 Booth: 1603

Pirate Dice: Here we go again, folks. Pirates. Ships. Dice. But, this looks good, I love dice and I helped this one via Kickstarter as well. Verdict: Want to Demo/Kickstarter. Conclusion: I did not get to see the game, I heard that people did, I just happened to not. Still a backer and still looking forward to getting the game.

Exile Game Studio: Booth: 419

Hollow Earth Expedition: Love these guys. It’s a tradition each year to make sure this is one of the first booths I visit. The first year Exile was at GenCon, I met Jeff Combos and Sechin Tower and fell in love with HEX. It’s a great game, I urge you to check it out. I just read they are working on a Kickstarter soon, I’m sure I will be following that one. Hopefully I’ll see some more of the Mars stuff they have been working on. Verdict: Have to See. Conclusion: Always good to see Jeff and Sechin. I got in early to the Dealer’s Hall on Thursday because of my Trade Day Badge. It was nice to avoid the crowds and just say hi. I picked up Deadfellas and got in their Kickstarter for Perils of the Surface World.

 

Mad Science Institute with author Sechin TowerMr. Tower wrote this nifty little novel Mad Science Institute. Check it out. You can get a Kindle version right now for 99 cents on Amazon. Anyway, I’m playing in a Hollow Earth Expedition game based on Mad Science Institute run by Sechin Tower. How cool is that? Verdict: Can’t Wait! Conclusion: Excellent game! Run by Sechin, it was my first RPG played at GenCon this year and was a great way to kick off my gaming for the weekend. I picked up a hard copy of his novel, Kindles are cool and all, but I love to read BOOKS.

  

Fantasy Flight Games: Booth: 813, 819, 911, 919, 1107, 1113, 1119

Android: Netrunner: I think this is going to be one of the shows sell-outs. I was thinking about running and getting it when the Hall Doors open, but my Con brain is telling me not to rush. I remember the original version fondly, but I’m not sure about this one. Verdict: Want to Demo. Conclusion: Sold out in ten minutes from what I heard. My FLGS just got some copies, I may pick it up still. I’ve been waiting to hear anything about it, but no one I know has grabbed it up yet.

Sky Traders: I’d like to take a look at this one. looks interesting and it has…Airships! Verdict: Want to Demo. Conclusion: Avoided the cramped booth. Sometimes the Con-Corpses make it so I want to run out of the Dealer’s Hall screaming. Walk like you are going somewhere!

So Many Others: Mansions of Madness, Elder Sign and wayyyyy too many others. FFG has a ton of great games. I could spend a couple hours at their booth. Verdict: Want to See. Conclusion: The FFG Booth was a madhouse this year, as it is every year, but since Netrunner sold out early, I had less motivation to fight the crowd.

Flying Buffalo: Booth: 509

Tunnels and Trolls: I’ll have to stop by the booth and see if there is any news about the new edition, or maybe an Eagle Continent poster. I’m a member of Trollhalla, I go by the name Sharauk-Ru, if you happen to frequent the site. Verdict: Want to See. Conclusion: I said hi to the TrollGod and shook his hand. I was really making the rounds this year.

Gamescience / FRED Distribution: Booth: 1603

Blue Jasper: I have been bugging this company about this color dice since they were announced. I want them. Yes, Gamescience, I’m the pain in the butt who keeps asking about them, now Take My Money! Verdict: Must Buy. Conclusion: I got my Blue Jasper’s and nobody asked if I was the guy who was a pain in the butt. Score! Something I was wondering about this year…I thought Lou Zocchi had sold off Gamescience as he has not been at GenCon for the past couple of years. Now, this year, he and Gamescience EACH had a booth. Is there a story there I wonder? Gamescience Games vs. Gamescience? I’ll have to look it up.

 

 So, Mr. Zocchi has a Booth… …As does Gamescience? I’m confused.

 Beware the D-Total!

d30: Gotta grab a few for the gaming group, plus, the only one I have is one I bought when I was about 26 years younger than I am now. Time for a new one, especially since I like DCC RPG so much. Verdict: Must Buy. Conclusion: Snagged.

Geek & Sundry: Booth: 633

I gotta say, I missed the boat on this one. There has been a flood of new gaming things happening in the world. This is one of them. Quality gaming entertainment. I never thought I would see the day. This is a corner of the gaming world I haven’t poked around in much (much like my recent foray into Google+). I also just starting watching The Nerdist. I’m a little behind the times. But, I’m happy to see there is a whole aspect of gaming that is new to me. This is the new Golden Age of Gaming. I think I’ll be taking some time to learn and watch, more. Verdict: Want to See. Conclusion: I’m now watching, and enjoying.

Goodman Games: Booth: No Booth

DCC RPG: There may be no booth, but I’m playing in a couple of games of this GM’d by Harley Stroh. I really like the game, looking forward to this. It’s also one of the games I run, so it’ll be nice to learn from one of the creators. Verdict: Can’t Wait! Conclusion: Seeing Doug Kovacs’ new DCC cover in the flesh and playing in two of Harley Stroh’s games were some more highlights of this year’s GenCon. I’m gonna head out to GaryCon just so I can play with him again, a damn good GM. The two groups I played with were spectacular as well. Three Thumbs Represent! R.I.P. and Long Live Nicos Knicknevin. BTW, Harley flipped me off for saving my character, the mark of a true OSR GM.

 

Kenzer & Co: Booth: 519

HackMaster: I love HackMaster. I do, I do. It’s one of my favorite games to run, and it holds a special place in my heart. The new Player’s Handbook should be there, buy it, it’s a glorious book. I already have my copy. Verdict: Have to See. Conclusion: The Booth looked busy and it was nice to say hi to Jolly Blackburn. 

-Loughmiller’s Pub Saturday 7 p.m.: Looks like there will be a meetup for KenzerCo and HackMaster fans, I’ll probably stop by. I’m HMGMA #300 by the way. Verdict: Maybe. I didn’t go.

 

 

Koplow Games Inc: Booth: 1219

d24, d30: Need to get some for the gaming group for our DCC RPG game. It’s funny, when I owned my game-store, Haunted Chapel Comics and Games, I sold Chessex and Crystal Caste dice. I find I prefer Koplow or Gamescience for my own needs. I just think the pips and numbers look better on Koplow dice, so I buy them. Verdict: Must Buy. Conclusion: I got a handful of D30’s and D24’s for the Home Group.

Looney Labs: Booth: No Booth

Cthulhu Fluxx: No booth. It’s really bummed me out that Looney Labs no longer goes to GenCon. I’m an Icehouse/Treehouse fanatic, but no-one will play with me. I’ll bring a copy of Ice Dice for pick-up games. The first games I played with my (at the time) soon-to-be wife, were all Looney Labs games. I used to run demos as well. I’m sure I’ll find a copy somewhere. Verdict: Must Buy. Conclusion: I bought a copy of Cthulhu Fluxx at the Steve Jackson Booth along with another game called Cthulhu 5000. 

I’ll be back with more!

Next: Volume C.

GenCon 2012 Recap Part 1.

New: I’m going to recap my original “Where am I gonna go” posts from before GenCon with what I actually accomplished and what I missed. I’ll add new information in a lovely Swamp color. Photos will be added as well.

It’s the Monday before GenCon and I thought I would mention the various Booths I’m looking at visiting, demoing at or purchasing from. Mainly this is my list of what to do at the Con.

Alea Tools: Booth: 608

New Version: A few GenCons ago, my wife bought me these excellent markers for miniatures, magnetic, they attach to the bottom of your figs to denote status or whatever you can imagine. The older version starts to repel each other when a bunch of them are in close proximity, I’ve read that is no longer the case, so I’d like to check out the newer model. Plus, they have a special going on…Verdict: Want to See.

-Spend $50 get a free 1” Marker Rack

Conclusion: I picked up some markers I didn’t have to add to my collection. Have I mentioned I love these? Because I love these markers.

Ares Games: Booth: 134

Sails of Glory: As a gamer who has been around for a while, there are games that I’ve never played but have always wanted to. This game falls into the genre of games I’ve always wanted to play: Ship Battles. I’ve always wanted a copy of Gygax, Arneson and Carr’s Don’t Give Up the Ship! so I keep an eye out for sea battle games. This one got on my radar due to this fine list over at Board Game Geek. Verdict: Want to Demo. Conclusion: Didn’t get a chance to demo, but still looks good to me!

Brooklyn Indie Games: Booth: 1033 with Game Salute

Ghost Pirates Board Game: Again, another ship game that incorporates another favorite, Pirates! Also discovered on Board Game Geek. Verdict: Want to Demo. Conclusion: Did not get a chance to demo, still on my watching list.

Catalyst Game Labs: Booth: 1703, 1711

Leviathans: Demo Leviathans and get a mini…OK! I’ve been watching this one for a while now, might satisfy that ship craving I have. But, looks cool, comes partially painted and the fluff has a Polish inventor creating the Airships. Sounds good to me. Verdict: Want to Demo. Conclusion: Saw it. Looked good, didn’t demo it but I’m pretty sure I’ll get this sometime.

The Duke: I got involved with the Kickstarter for this one, looking forward to playing it. There will also be a photo-op for the backers of this project at the Catalyst booth on Saturday from 5:30 to 5:45 p.m. I’ll be there. I wasn’t.  Verdict: Want to Demo/Kickstarter. Conclusion: While I missed the meet-up and photo-op, I did get a chance to see the prototypes and played with it a bit. I’m excited to get my copy. Catalyst also gave out a print and play version of the game, there is a photo below.

 

Shadowrun: 2050: I just want to hold this in my hands and stare at the cover for a while. Verdict: Want it/Gotta Have it. Conclusion: Nothing’s changed, still want it and gotta have it but I waited to pick it up because I wanted to pick up the Con-only stuff mainly.

Shadowrun: The Clutch of Dragons: Oh my. This looks…fantastic. Verdict: Want it/Gotta Have it. Ditto ^ .

Shadowrun: Elven Blood Limited Edition: Convention Exclusive. I could always use more Shadowrun Missions. Verdict: Must Buy.

Shadowrun: Weapon Cards (Guns.V1): Another convention item. Since Shadowrun is one of the games I’m currently running, this and the next one are Verdict: Must Buy.

Shadowrun: Gear Cards (Drones & Vehicles.V1): See above. Verdict: Must Buy. Conclusion: I got all three of these along with a set of Shadowrun Dice and the Convention GM Screen (different cover).

 

Mechwarrior Tactics Online Beta Key Poster: I seem to get into a lot of Beta’s. This one I want to be in. I’ve loved Battletech and Mechwarrior for many years. When I used to live in Florida, it was Battletech almost every night. Verdict: Snag One If You Can. Grabbed one.

Shadowrun Fan Meet and Greet: Wednesday 7-9 p.m. Union Station: I’ll try to make it, I want to make it, but I’m doing Trade Day this year for the first time, and this falls during the same time as my demo time with Trade Day. Verdict: Maybe. Maybe not.

Crash Games: Booth: No Booth

The Lost Dutchman: These guys have no booth this year, but I’m gonna follow them on Twitter and see if I can rustle up a Demo of The Lost Dutchman. I backed this one on Kickstarter and I’d like to get a taste of the gameplay. Verdict: Want to Demo/Kickstarter. Conclusion: I followed their tweets but didn’t end up searching them out and hitting a demo. Still happy to be a backer and can’t wait for the game.

Cubicle 7 Entertainment: Booth: 125

The Doctor Who Card Game: I am a Whovian for sure. I have my Sonic Screwdriver packed in my bag. Verdict: Want to Demo/Want it/Gotta Have it. Conclusion: Watched a demo, looks fun!

The Doctor Who RPG 11th Doctor Edition: I have the David Tennant cover, I wanted a Matt Smith cover. Perhaps this year? Verdict: Want to See. Conclusion: And there it is. Couldn’t justify a purchase as I had gotten a bunch of Dr. Who stuff and I haven’t played the David Tennant version I already own.

  

More later!

I’ll be back in a little bit with more!

Game Night and Post GenCon Thoughts.

Game night is here! We will be rolling down on some DCC RPG finishing up Doom of the Savage Kings. I want to then move on the The Emerald Enchanter but I was inspired by a module I saw called Attack of the Frawgs by Thick Skull Adventures, so I may run a homebrew in between using the Frawgs as inspiration. I picked it up off of Drive-Thru RPG along with another couple good-looking modules from Purple Sorcerer Games called Perils of the Sunken City and The Ooze Pits of Jonas Gralk, both of which look really fun. Also, I’m excited to get the first modules from Brave Halfling, I participated in their Kickstarter and am anxiously awaiting these great looking digest sized adventures.

I thought over the next couple days I would post anything I have left over from GenCon that is of interest, pictures of things I saw and pics of the Hall. I’ll also revisit my posts about the booths I was going to visit.

The guys over at Pinnacle were gracious enough to post my pics from the GenCon Deadlands Noir Don’s game, I’m very happy to be mentioned on the website of my favorite game company. It’s a proud feather in my cap.

Hell on Earth: Reloaded is coming to our table! I’ve got most of what I need, just have to do some reading and planning, I’m excited to get some Savage Worlds action in as well. Afterall, Deadlands Noir is getting closer!
