I need to give a big “thank you” to the booth babes of the day (they each got to wear my secondary booth badge labelled “Warrior of Destiny”): Whitney Watts (pictured to the right), my wife Britt, my daughter Anna, and my son Seth. Whitney has a bad tendency to beat me at my games — winning Dicey Curves twice (once as a playtest of the DANGER! Expansion) and also winning Subtilla twice.
There was also a Father Geek sighting (see picture above and to the left). Cyrus Kirby of FatherGeek.com and another local Twin Cities game designer named Jeff spent (also a TGC user) a couple hours at my booth to talk games and gaming, watch a game of Subtilla, and then play both Space Mission and Dicey Curves. I also gave Cyrus a sneak peek at what’s up with the DANGER! Expansion. Good times and glad to have these guys stop by.
The rest of the time was spent doing more games-playing and games-talking and even got some more discussion in with Donovan about multiple things, including additional progress on the “Magistrate” prototype. Met a couple of people who had liked the “Jump Gate geocache” contest I ran a couple weeks ago. They reassured me that I can keep the clues tricky, knowing who the target audience is. So, we’ll see what I work out for my planned “Dicey Cache” find-it-keep-it event in April.
