Greetings from a very long and successful day at Gen Con! It’s 3AM here and we’re wiped out, so this one’s going to be short and picture-light.
We had a few fantastic demos, including Get Adler, Kitsune: of Foxes and Fools, Superbeings Jumbo Card Game, Filibuster, Clockwork Renaissance and others, which looked fantastic on the Table of Ultimate Gaming from Wood Robot. (See yesterday’s post for a chance to win one!)
Sales were pretty brisk today, mostly folks looking for stuff that is a new release at the show. I will say that nearly 70% of our non-new-release sales were from members who have taken the time to promote on their social media that our booth has their games. Hint, hint. Our booth number is #361.
We got to meet a number of our members and Minions face-to-face for the first time, which is always exciting for us, and also welcomed three new members and one new Minion to the Alliance. We even let one new member click the Approve Application button himself.
