Speaking of wizardry, Rick Soued from Eagle Games/Gryphon Games gave me an overview of Wizard's Brew from designers Alan R. Moon and Aaron Weissblum. As noted on the video, the game is expected to be available in August 2013.
Karesansui, which is also expected to reach stores in August 2013. As Eagle/Grpyhon's Sean Brown told me at Origins, these two games – along with Francis Drake, Railways Express, Railways of North America, and Railways of Great Britain – were all printed at about the same time, so they're sharing containers on the way to the U.S. in order to ship everything more efficiently. As a result, lots of stuff is coming at once form Eagle/Gryphon!
Mythic Battles: Expansion 1, which debuted in the U.S. at Origins and will hit stores in June 2013. (Players in Europe saw this game in stores in May 2013.)
Dwarven Miner, which debuted at Origins 2013 mere weeks following its successful funding on Kickstarter thanks to it being produced in the U.S. (In the video, I joke about interviewing Richie again; this is due to us needing to record the overview twice. The first time I thought everything was running smoothly, saw the camera recording as I held cards up to the lens, then discovered when I went to stop recording that it was off – despite the batteries being fine. Curious. In any case, at least that time I knew about the problem right away so that we could run through the demo a second time.)
In the City: Origins, which debuted at the convention.
My apologies to Davis for the terrible audio on this recording. My fault in this case as I apparently forgot to plug in the receiver. So many things that I messed up over and over again! For the future, I'll (1) ideally have someone else running the camera so that we'll have four eyes and two brains at work to spot errors and (2) use a bud earphone so that I can check the audio immediately when I start to record. This won't catch every error – such as when the camera inexplicably turns off – but it should reduce my error ratio a fair amount. Next stop: video lessons!
