  1. OK, it's been decided, I'm going but I'll be the only member of the Wayfinder Games team there. It's going to be a busy few days...!
  2. Sure. No face coverings, no proof of vaccination required, no distancing measures (I actually forgot to add on the thread that they're decreasing the aisle width from 4m back to the usual 3m). They're sending out a Health and Safety statement soon, following all the guidelines laid out by Solihull Borough Council (that is to say, no enforcement required). It will, however, 'encourage' visitors to take their own precautions. No hand sanitizer stations in the halls, but there are some dotted around the wider NEC complex, and at the entryways to the halls. As an exhibitor, I can request people wear masks and use sanitizer at my booth. If they refuse, I can ask them to leave. Basically, the word from the organisers is "your booth, your rules". There's also a plan for security to be walking the halls in case things get heated. Of course, I'm hoping that they won't but planning for just in case, considering folks are getting masks grabbed off faces and plenty of verbal abuse here in NI. In short, cover your own arse, because (as @Pelekophoros so eloquently said) the pandemic is most definitely over in England.
  3. It has been Quite The Fucking Day. It's all over my twitter if folks want to see what's gone on after the Dicebreaker story. Still trying to decide whether we'll actually go or not.
  4. I literally just designed my own cards and took the text from the Black Box version of the game (which I borrowed from a friend). Had them printed up at a local place then cut and sleeved them all. It's such a good game, but trying to convince folks to play is a nightmare! It's got such a reputation of being an absolute beast that it frightens people away!
  5. I'd love to get together with folks for some games in the evenings, I'm legendarily bad at doing so because a full day on the booth plus chronic pain plus all the meds usually knock me out. This year though, there'll be Rain and myself on our booth, so I can take it a little easier. It'd be lovely to meet up with folks! Up til 2am though? Hell no, ya boi needs his sleep! You youngsters can forge ahead without me And yeah, @jonnyalpha, show us what you've got, I finally have some money to spend!
  6. So uhhhh... I made my own copy of Glory to Rome (with permission from a certain person). If you want, I could probably hook you up with the files? It's kind of based on the fancy black box version, but uses graphics and stuff from the GameIcons site. Looks OK, plays exactly the same as the normal game! Oh, also, I just played Mini Rogue on my Twitch channel, and it was a bloody delight. Next up this afternoon: soloing Stardew Valley!
  7. We'll be there for our first UKGE outing as Wayfinder Games, showing off Blaseball: The Card Game and selling The Split. We've only got a small booth but there'll be space to run a couple of demo games at a time, and we're expecting a pretty busy weekend (thanks to the Tabletop Gaming Magazine cover, an upcoming Polygon feature, and the fact our crowdfunding campaign for BTCG will be running over that weekend). No way we could afford the Hilton, even with the exhibitors block prices, so we're at the Moxy instead - £700 for four nights with breakfast, and it's right next to the NEC... Couldn't say no! As for meetup plans, I'm sure we could sort something! Who else is around?
  8. Where's the best place to pick up a code for Elden Ring? And I assume it runs alright on a Series S?
  9. Shameless self promo time: my new game is on the cover of Tabletop Gaming Magazine next month!
  10. We're definitely NOT using Kickstarter again thanks to their blockchain nonsense. Trying to get Gamefound to let us use their site to run a campaign but they're currently invite only, leaving us with one option: Indiegogo. Not ideal, and I know we're leaving money on the table not going with KS, but we want to stand by our principles.
  11. I got rid of 150+ games over the holidays, and to make sure everything arrived in good condition, I just bought a bunch of double wall 12" cube boxes and a huge roll if bubble wrap oft Amazon. Wasn't massively expensive, and I think folks appreciated it.
  12. We're showing off the first cards on Friday, and I'll be be able to go into detail then!
  13. All I'm playing at the moment is Blaseball, which will surprise very few of you. Thankfully, the game is Actually Good, but I would say that.
  14. I did win the whole game! Got a £2000 voucher to spend on a holiday, which went on flights and hotels for me and my partner to go to San Diego Comic Con! If I'd won the game before, it would have been a brand new Mini Cooper... I'd be delighted if they brought it back, and I'd be playing every night, guaranteed.
  15. It'll be mailed out in the morning!
  16. @Stejay Never saw that you pinged me! You can get a copy of that game through the Wayfinder-games.com site - let me know if you put an order in and I'll make sure you get one of the fancy ass poker chips
  17. @jonnyalpha You get a free Cheat card if you hit a five card hand and survive The Deal part of the round, but you can also get them from some of the Cash Loot Cards (10k gives you the money and a card, 30k gives you the money OR a card). @therearerulescards and box came from a UK company called Spingold who normally do personalised card decks. Rules were printed locally here in Belfast! I'm... reasonably happy with how the game turned out, lots of lessons learnt for project 2, coming in March.
  18. Ummmm... is Disco Elysium on Game Pass or not? So many sites saying that it is, yet it's £30-odd when I sign in?
  19. Heads up, Airship City is on there for £15 - it's a fun game that I paid a LOT more for at Essen a couple of years ago, definitely recommended.
  20. Well, we're funded, now it's just a matter of seeing how big our print run will be! Thank you for the support, folks.
