Preparing For Origins 2012

Origins 2012 is right around the corner--just two weeks away! This year I'll be there from Thursday until Saturday. I'm looking forward to seeing old friends and making some new ones. Here's my to-do list for the con:

Objective #1 - Talk to publishers about my current prototypes. I will be bringing 4-5 unpublished games with me this year. I just had a nice session playing one of them tonight.

Objective #2 - Spend some time at the Jolly Roger Games booth showing off Family Vacation. The art continues to lag on this one. The working prototype will look very similar to the one I had displayed last year. Maybe next year we'll have it printed and available for purchase . . .

Objective #3 - Spend a bit of time at the Minion Games booth talking about Kingdom of Solomon. We got another nice review today.

Objective #4 - Meet other designers and cross-pollinate. The less said about this the better . . .

Objective #5 - Meet Wil Wheaton! He is supposed to be at the con and he likes Revolution! We'll see how it turns out.

Objective #6 - Buy one or two new games. Play two or three new games.

If you are heading to Origins, let me know. For sure, stop by the Board Room and say hi. It should be a great time!
