Update from the Campaign Trail!

Hello from the Campaign Trail!

PAX was a rousing success for The Partisans. The event was full of gameplay and general fun. We played the game with lots of gamers in the Open Play area - we even had a few gaming VIPs stop by to play! 

Things heated up later at the Extra Credits party Saturday night. The party started with a bunch of six-person teams attacking a puzzle room. The folks at Puzzle Break who ran the event were fantastic – super professional and fun. 

After the puzzle room was done, The Partisans hit the table and drew a huge and happy crowd. Eventually, the Extra Credits crew started a Q&A session with the fans about all things Extra Credits, but even that couldn’t pull the players away from the game! Bills were formed, sneaky tricks were executed, votes were taken, and through all of that, fun was had. Sadly, we had to leave around 11:30pm due to a very early flight out the next morning.

Today is a holiday here in the US, there is no rest for The Partisans! Today, we’ll be getting another prototype together, preparing to film the play through, and getting ready to hit DC for Luke’s talk at the National Archives on Wednesday and for Nick and Andrew’s appearance at WashingCon. You are welcome to show up at either/both events and say hi, but If you want to play the game, WashingCon is the better bet.

The campaign itself is going well and that really is due to backers like you sharing the game with their friends. If we keep it up, we’ll get over the finish line for sure!

Check out some images from PAX and from the Game for President campaign.

The Fun to 11 Crew
