PAX itself is a gaming convention. There are several of these conventions around the country each year. PAX mostly focuses on PC and console games. However, there are a sprinkling of analog games at each event. This years PAX South seemed to be about 30% analog. There were many cool new games like Research and Deployment: Mecha, Karmaka, and about a dozen other indies. Plus a bunch of new PC/Console games like Patrick Chapin/Louis Scott-Vargas' card game Eternal.
I wanted to give you more pictures, but most of them turned out pretty crappy. People were moving around too fast. Damn you Samsung!
Business wise things went great! Foam Brain Games, a traveling con hobby store, now stocks our products. We also spoke with a lot of D&D/Pathfinder players. They were stoked about our dry-erase tokens. We will be working with some of them in the next couple weeks to develop an RPG specific dry-erase card that you can use them for gear, condition, zones, buffs and so much more. Those will be coming out in the spring.
Overall it was a great experience and we will certainly be back next year!
Be sure to come visit our booth at PAX South from Jan 29th through the 31st in San Antonio, Texas. We will be showcasing all of our supplies and giving out FREE promo tokens!
If you don't have your tickets yet Friday and Sunday passes are still available here:
For all of you MTG players check out Cascade Games' schedule here:
There will also be a ton of other board and video games around the convention center. It's going to be a fun weekend!
We will be closing the webstore and significantly changing the website starting February 8th. We need to do this in order to give us adequate time to focus on product and brand development. Fear not! You we will be showcasing several authorized online vendors for our products in the US and Canada. You can expect the same great quality products and service.
We will also be discontinuing our Retail Partner Program. Currently, you can pick up our products for your store at Southern Hobby. We are currently in talks with other distributors and hope to have them on-board by the end of February. If your distributor doesn't stock our products tell your sales rep to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As always, thanks for helping make every game begin with Turn One.
Getting into the car I suddenly got excited all over again for a new set of LGS and the prospect of meeting more great players and store owners. First a stop off in Arlington TX to visit a few stores in the area. Getting into town I made an obligatory stop at the most famous steak house in Texas. The food was good and the beer was awesome. The following morning I made some great friends at 12052 Recycled Entertainment, played some Magic with the owner, and they even took me to diner. I would really suggest checking out that establishment. Leaving Texas I made my way to New Mexico. Stopped at a huge truck stop and talked to the owner of the place. He had a huge collection of classic cars and memorabilia, very cool. Played an FNM with a budget deck at the Albuquerque Family Game Center and did ok. Landed right in the middle of the pack by the 4th round, which I was ok with that. Pretty competitive scene and that's always enjoyable. Made a short stop in Santa Fe to play at Twin Suns Comics Commander league night and was not disappointed, although my Jhoira deck did proceed to make one of the players rage quit, which was not my intetion =[ (Some people don't appreciate the fun that a chaos oriented deck brings to the table). I said my goodbyes and appreciated the praise for quality of product from the store and individuals who now play with our sleeves, dice, and playmats, then headed off to Colorado for the last leg of my journey.
So packed up and ready to roll, I head off to Oklahoma City ready for adventure. A short 9 hour trip and there I was. First stop was a large casino since it was 11p.m. and no stores where open. Zero jackpots, but was fun nonetheless. Over the next 2 days I visited a handful of really cool stores. Some of the ones pictured had great owners and good vibes and due to them, are now carried in the area! Before I headed off to Tulsa I stopped into the largest shop around for a huge commander pod. People had a great time and it was a pack battle format, a great idea to move the games along. Well Oklahoma City and Tulsa where great, but it was time to head off to Amarillo TX, then NM. More fun was to be had, but that tale is for another time. Keep a lookout for products at your lgs in the Oklahoma state and if you don't have them remember to ask for Turn One!
Black Friday is coming early! Everything in the store will be on sale starting Monday 11/23. Be sure to check in on Monday as quantities for many items are limited.
PLUS you get free US shipping on orders over $50!
Lowest prices EVER on playmats, sleeves, dice & more!
For fun we uploaded our Magin' it Rain playmat into Google's Deep Dream network. What came out was awesome.
We are hitting the road again!
This time we'll be stopping in at dozens of game stores in Oklahoma City, Amarillo, Albuquerque, Santa Fe and the Denver metropolitan area. We'll be blogging about the great stores we see, people we meet and even some sweet grub.
If there's a must stop place along the road let us know in the comments section or on twitter/facebook.
