Gen Con Day 1.5

This Game Sucks was fun, and it turns out cassiopia knows one of the designers that were running our game. The game itself is only eight bucks, so we might have to pick it up. Having a quick game that we can play in twenty minutes might be nice when we don't have time to play, say, Munchkin.

This Game Sucks
It's one of those funny, 'make fun of the gamer experience,' like Munchkin (tho much faster).

Re: This Game Sucks
That is a damned good question. They gave is a card telling us at what booth to find it, but the booth at that number was only selling clothing. We never did find who was selling it.

Re: This Game Sucks
*coughcough* The game can be found here: Alleged Enterprises.

Sorry for the confusion with our efforts at pimping the game. Our friends at Starwind Designs were quite literally selling all of our games under the table - which is to say, they had a bin of them under their booth table and would pull them out and sell them if someone asked for one. Not exactly the ideal approach, but when you're hocking your wares for 7 bucks, a booth at Gencon is a bit out of the ol' price range. :)

Thanks for playing, by the way. I'm glad you had a good time, and I'll make sure to say hi to Cassiopia for you this weekend!

Re: This Game Sucks
Oh, cool! We were planning to check out the website as well, but it's too bad that booth didn't have a tiny placard that said, "Ask Us About This Game Sucks!" so we could have picked up the game at the Con!

Re: This Game Sucks
Yeah, I hear that. In years past they've allowed us to display all of our games at their booth and it's generally worked out quite well. In 2007 for whatever reason, many of the folks who approached the booth took up a lot of their time with questions about the games and that distracted them from their own products. Not a good situation, and I can totally understand their reluctance to be in that position this year. There's probably a better solution out there, but as yet we haven't figured it out.

Re: This Game Sucks
Ah.... I can understand that. icespark checked all the tables that have a variety of games for sale hoping to find a copy, but to no avail. Maybe a new partnership with one of the other gamesellers? I don't know how all that works, unfortunately...

*chuckle* Yeah. And, surprisingly, the game itself actually doesn't suck..

Re: This Games Sucks
Well, you set expectations low like that, the only way to go is up, right?

Munchkin
*chuckle* We tried to play a game last night, but it wound up running on too long and people needed to go home to sleep. It is fun playing with new people, tho, because you have a group for whom the jokes are fresh and new again. LOL
