This is our 100th update! And #101 (and 102, and so on) will be up before long, because things are really developing:
Daniel, Phil, and I will be at Gen Con. Look for us at booth #1301. You can be one of the first on the planet to play with an air-couriered set from China! (The set we showed off at Origins and DexCon was a hand-made preproduction sample; we're bringing two advance copies of the final print product to show at Gen Con. Sorry, these will not be for sale!)
Gen Con Event #1: Play Ogre Designer's Edition
And if you have never played Ogre before, no problem. We will be teaching the rules!
Gen Con Event #2: Ogre Designer's Edition Expansion Playtest
These are "sneak preview" playtests for an upcoming Ogre Assault Pack expansion (with new terrain and units!), or one of the Kickstarter bonus scenarios. We're looking for experienced players who can provide feedback.
Places at these events are limited – if you are interested, grab a spot now! (The links above will take you to Gen Con's event finder if you are not already logged in.) As I post this, spots are still available in both events.
Watch for more about Ogre at Gen Con in update 101.
For more about our Gen Con plans (yes, we do have some other games), see today’s Daily Illuminator.
And the last time I spoke to Daniel, he was cutting out playtest counters for some brand new units.
We have received music from Tom Smith. We are listening to it. In our heads, Ogres are colliding, GEVs are racing across the plains, desperate orders are being given . . .
Eric found a venue we like for the launch party. We should know by Tuesday if we have a contract. If we get this place, we’ll scale up our plans a bit.
