Trade Shows and Exhaustion: Post-Kickstarter week 24

Posted by Isaac Childres (Creator)

Hello residents of Gloomhaven!

Well, I must say that the GAMA Trade Show took more of a toll than I had hoped on this week. It was a good experience, but I come to you now very tired and with very little to share.

I know I promised a new version of the rule book this week, but I really wanted to get through all the revisions that a lot of you sent in and I haven't had a chance to do that yet, so we're going to wait an additional week to send out the new version.

It really drove me crazy how little I was able to get done this past week, so I will be working hard this next week to make up some ground.

In the mean time, you can see some press I did on Gloomaven for the Dice Tower during the show here. I will warn you though, that there are some spoilers at the end. They really wanted to see the miniatures for all the character classes, so I obliged.

That's all I have for you this week. Expect a bigger update next time!

      I just watched the trade show footage, and I'm excited! Don't try to work hard to make up time, that week has past. Its kind of like working out--you can't work out twice in one day to make up for a day off. Just get back at it and have a good, normal week.

      There's so many good games out there, I don't mind waiting before this one comes in and takes over. I'll say it again: I'd rather have it good than fast!

      oh crap sorry. Ment to send it as a message. if possible delete my message.

      Kristian, only the character classes have minis. But we really shouldn't say anything else to avoid spoilers. Send me a message if you have any other questions.

      Thanks for all of your concern. I don't remember being tired in that interview. I think I'm just a low-key person. I have to actively try to be energetic, and I guess I forgot to do that. Anyway, everything is great now that I am back at home, so it is time to work!

      Take care for yourself. Make a great game without rushing it out. :) And beware a burnout.

      Noone likes to be told that they look tired but I would have to agree that you look like you could need some rest.
      In other news. The more updates that come the more this game leaves the rest behind in my personal "most anticipated" list (and i backed scythe and 7th continent)
      The minis looks amazing.
      Was a little worried though. The bear for instant and, what i think was bosses, -minis will they be in the "miniature pledge version" or were they a seperate add-on that i totally missed.

      For real, take it a bit easier. Life is long and we don't want you to burn out... I sincerely hope you have years of game making in you and it would be a shame for it to burn out on the circuit!

      Not holding to any answer here -

      Any chance for backers to pick up their copy at GenCon? I would love to work that out :)

      One can literally see your exhaustion in the Dice Tower section. You look like you could need some sleep and relaxation ! A well rested mind can work more efficient, so don't overstress yourself.

      All the best to you!
