GAMA Report: Day 1
OR Vegas is Weird, Industry is Good

Courtesy of Goodman Games, I had dinner sitting beside Jolly Freakin' Blackburn. Doesn't get much cooler than that, pseudo-French hot pants and bad burgers not withstanding.

Kenzer and Co. brought a pre-sale copy of Aces and Eights to dinner. The book rocks like Boot Hill on whiskey and cocaine.

Also, a big, Deathy shout-out to Cassandra of Tabletop Adventures. This small, enterprising company put in the effort to come to GTS to learn the ropes/outline their plot for world domination. You have to respect that kind of dedication. Most folks don't bother to plan, expecting the world to be handed to them on a platter.

And finally, thanks to Jason, the retailer enough to share his experiences of Iron Crypt. Claims they studied one encounter for 2 weeks.

Wow. Humbling indeed.

More to report, but now it is time for some well-deserved sleep.

Aces and Eights is entertaining, but the displayhound at gencon seemed a bit too involved in the rules rather than just letting Mad Monkey and I battle it out. And of course, the hostage taking wasn't even on their radar.

**LAUGH**

So, long story, BUT ....

Your play test must have inspired them to add the hostage bit, because at dinner they were showingus pictures that they had taken just that day (that will be sepia toned, etc) to explain hostage taking.

Sweet.

But yeah, displayhounds need to get out of the way of the game and just let us folks (the customers) play. :)

Thanks for the kind remarks, and the warm welcome at GTS. If you want a look at the other stuff our company produces, you can go to our home page at http://www.tabletopadventures.com/ instead of just looking at our horror stuff. :)

By the way, I don't know how you learned about the plans for world domination (I know I didn't tell you), but if you don't watch out you're going to get me in trouble with the Overlord.
