Convention Time Again!

It is convention time again.  Last year we flew to Newark, NJ, the day after Hurricane Sandy hit the area.  We attended a Game Designers Convention called “Metatopia”. Even with the Hurricane aftermath, the convention went smoothly.   We will be headed there again this year.  We will be armed with two games to playtest, and one year’s worth of questions we want to present to the panels.

This will be the first time we have shared our games at a convention.  It’s very exciting to have it play tested with fellow designers, and maybe even a publisher or two.  We will be taking “Wheel of War” and “Planet 313”!  Both are great family games.   We will also see a friend we knew when we lived in Kansas City!  It will be a great trip. 

We also found an EXPO in our backyard in Durham, NC.  It is called “Escapist Expo”. 


They focus on video games, board gaming, RPG, Larp, and Cosplay; and are focused on the players.  It was very interesting to see all the costumes.  We met a few artists who might be able to help on future games.  We are thinking it would be good to participate in this platform next year.

So watch for a post soon about “Metatopia”.  Hope we have NO HURRICANES!!!!
