Just one week until Twofivesix!

Dear backers,

Thank you again for your early support of Twofivesix!  Despite taking down the Kickstarter we are excited to report that all is going smoothly and we are on for next Saturday, May 11th in Brooklyn.

If you have not gone ahead and purchased your ticket yet from our new website, please do so ASAP.  We set aside tickets for our faithful backers, but are releasing them to the general public this weekend, so now's the time if you still intend to come!

In other news, we have some exciting updates:

The schedule is now live on our site. Click here to see a full listing of the day's not-to-be-missed conversations.

Lunch will be provided onsite by our friends at Lonestar Empire BBQ. Vegetarian options will be provided as well.

Afterparty: Join us onsite from 6:30-8:30 for cocktails, conversation, and a selection of our favorite games. Beer lovingly provided by Brooklyn Brewery, gin cocktails by the New York Distilling Company and rum by The Noble Experiment NYC!

.edu Discount: Are you a student or educator who's interested in Twofivesix? We still have a limited number of $100 tickets available for you. If so, please register with a valid .edu email address at www.two5six.com with the promo code: EDU256.

Twofivesix Livestream: Our friends at Twitch.tv have graciously offered to help us provide a video livestream of the event for folks who can't attend. Livestream passes can be purchased for $30 from the tickets page.

And for those of you who purchased the games pack, that's still available as well.  Go to the Twofivesix website for more details.

We sincerely hope you can participate in some way.  Thanks again!

Sincerely,
Jamin, Tom, and the Twofivesix Team

So far, so good!

So at the end of day one, we're almost 20% done! That's amazing. 

We're so excited and we couldn't be more pleased with everyone who's supported us. As talented as our speakers are, one of the biggest draws is you and all the wonderful conversations that will surely ensue.

We still have a long way to go, of course, so please help spread the word. Your skeptical boss who isn't quite sure about this games thing? That skeptical aunt who thinks games are a waste of time? That design-minded friend who's been looking for a new creative outlet? Twofivesix is for them.

More updates to come!

Best,

Jamin, Tom, and team Kill Screen

P.S.This is actually our fourth Kickstarter project, but we never had the foresight to capture the moment of launching one...until now.
