marcus 2013


What can I say - I had a great time, gave the latest disks to Greg Stafford and Sandy Peterson and a bunch of friends and reviewers, raised a few quid for charity, and played a lot of games. The coin thing worked really well; I think that most of them were found but I only had five claims all weekend - I kept on running into people who had one or two and were looking for the others, and I heard rumours of mini swap meets. At a small relaxed con it's definitely a good way to spread interest in the game. Somewhere like Gencon you'd have to jump through all sorts of hoops to make it work, of course, you'd probably end up having to pay for the cleaners or something... I'll try to do it again with the Weinbaum game, make them with different spaceships on them or something.

Got back to London and spent a couple of hours taking care of some orders that had come in etc., so all in all it's been a fairly successful weekend.
