Everything is boxed up and protected. Just waiting for the carts to arrive!

-------------------------

My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Ferris pass out at the Let's Play Gaming Expo last night. I guess it's pretty serious.

Oh, my WTB thread is very popular. The sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, wastoids, dweebies, Richard craniums - they all adore it. They think it's a righteous thread.
I'd also like to add that I've got my father's gun and a *scorching* price guide for aftermarket Nintendo games.
Between Dragon Warriors and nothing... I'll take Dragon Warriors - for any of my FT/FS/FO items.

And just a week to go! If we want to meet you to say hi, can we find you at the merch booth or anywhere else in particular?

I will most likely be at The Wizard tournament or the main stage/stream all weekend. Convention Quest will be available at the merch booth and since I won't be there, they will be on there own and if they sell out, I won't know till the end of the day! That'll be interesting.

I believe the plan is to put out 100 each day, 50 of each color.

I assume there is no way to reserve a copy? I am going, but I am famous for getting to places just in time for someone to tell me "we just sold the last one."

I won't be able to attend, but like some others said, I am also interested in a copy. If someone grabs an extra, send me a message.

Put me on the list of if anyone can grab an extra copy for me. I would kill to have a copy especially with a little detail I know about the game.

Did they sell out or are you taking some orders on NA?

Convention is over and I still have some copies left. While I tried to get you all to come out because it was amazing, I did write down everyone's name and made a list of who wanted copies and set them aside. I'm still exhausted from the weekend and load-out in the Texas heat, but I'll get orders going next week.

Also, finally got to play it. Gotta say, nothing out there quite like it. I don't like being hipster, but damn if this thing isn't meta. References to other conventions, jokes about working cons, guest appearances from other homebrews?! There is a lot in here, Beau did a great job and I'm not even close to halfway through it. A lot to explore. Couldn't be happier with the final result.

Italics for everyone!

Hipster... hahaha. Only you and my grandma think so  . Thanks for the comments though!

Just to note, Tim from Retrotainment helped with nearly every aspect of the game as well, from writing to drawing graphics to laying out rooms and making design decisions. He also did the sfx, while HumanThomas nailed it with the main soundtrack. I also have to give a huge thanks to INL for helping me finish the physical production on time. I was one click away from buying a plane ticket to Texas and assembling the games at the show, but Paul really came through and worked out some fixes. The kicker? I wasn't even using his boards! Talk about a swell guy.

I have been pretty quiet in this thread in order to focus on finishing on time, but also because the scope of the game was changing on a daily basis. I was still tidying up some things the morning that the first 100 games shipped, and writing things like the intro text. There was a lot more that I had planned, and tons had to be cut to hit the date target, but I'm happy with how it turned out. The goal was to create an engaging virtual experience of a convention, and in that I think we succeeded. My hope is to grow the series in fundamental ways with each installment, but the base is solid at this point. Where will the Convention Quest go next, and what will be added? Time will tell, but for those that play it feel free to reach out to me with comments, concerns, criticisms, and any and all feedback. Thanks for the interest all, and thanks for playing!
