We’re back from Mysticon 2012, recovering from our various ailments (you always get something at a con), and/or lack of sleep. This year was fantastic! We were set up in a corner of the dealer’s room and introduced our demo table to the world. The layout of our booth worked very well, allowing folks to browse as well as sit around our demo table and try the wide variety of new games we rolled out. Tsuro (while not brand new) certainly proved popular, as well as Puzzle Strike, Showbiz Shuffle (I really liked that game), Zombie Dice, and Eminent Domain. Our dice (including the fugly ones) proved a wild success. Our thanks go out to Necropolis Studios for letting us sell her bizarre goggles and boxes. They were certain an eye catcher and brought many a folk to our booth. I think our most talked about game was Win-Lose-Banana. We even ended up giving copies to the convention’s Guests of Honor, Richard Hatch and Nicki Clyne from Battlestar Galactica. They were both gracious enough to autograph some pics to Area42 Games, which shall now hang in our new Hall of Fame. If you come to one of our Meetups, check them out.
Overall, a fantastic experience. Our congratulations to John Meagher of Tales of the Left Hand fame. He was 1/3rd of the winning team in Mysticon’s Iron Author contest. His story about a sentient mohawk, cow tipping, and a kosher vampire is worth a read.
We’ll definitely be going back next year. Be sure to stop by and say hello.
