November 7, 2012: Prepping For BoardGameGeekCon (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/a/2012-11-07)

With October over, it's time to turn our attention to November and the annual fun known as BoardGameGeekCon (http://boardgamegeek.com/bggcon). Each year for the past five years I've rushed off to Dallas for a weekend of gaming, but this year, I'm not going to get to go. We will have a full team there, however, at the con's new location at DFW Airport.

To prepare for the convention we're reviewing our selection of Munchkin (http://www.worldofmunchkin.com/) promo goodies, deciding on exactly which games we want to offer for sale at the show, and making sure that our Castellan (http://www.sjgames.com/castellan/) demo sets are ready for action. We will very likely have early copies of Dino Hunt Dice (http://www.sjgames.com/dice/dinohunt/) for sale, and we'll be stocked with the newest Cthulhu Dice (http://www.sjgames.com/dice/cthulhudice/) (and, fingers crossed, the latest printing of Zombie Dice (http://www.sjgames.com/dice/zombiedice/)). Ogre (http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/) fans will want to stop and get a look at the latest game prototypes and play a game or two with our full-size mockup components.

Hopefully, I'll get the chance to go next year! If you're at the con, drop by and say hi!

Some people will tell you that you can have too much of a good thing. These people are not to be listened to. Instead, push your combat to the outer edges of so-called "good sense" by using the rules found in GURPS Mass Combat (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-0131), available from e23 (http://e23.sjgames.com/). Remember, it's not a good time until 30,000 dudes with pointy sticks are shouting at each other from across a valley somewhere.
