Bring water. Dress light.

I'll be working at Indie Boards and Cards, 3-Q102, for about three quarters of the show, so give me a shout when you come by.

Drat! I mixed things up and looked for you at the Stronghold booth when I picked up Fine Sand.

Sorry – I was round the corner showing off Exodus: Paris Nouveau until 1430. I'll be there all day tomorrow, though…

You all are lucky just to be there, but if you meet up, please tell the tale, post a picture, and drive home our jealousy. whistle

I spent today meeting all sorts of nice solo gamers: In chronological order: Tristan Hall, Roger, Mikolaj, Lieve, and Lines42. As well as other nice people who're non-guilders (at least I think they're non-guilders) .

It was great meeting you all.

Lovely to see you, sorry we didn't have more time to chat. Come to a 1PG UK meet one of these years.

It seems like you’re much better at arranging a meetup there than we’ve been at Essen .

I’ve been wanting to go for a while, but the cost in time and money has stopped me from doing so.

I have been talking to Morten about doing a 1-player guild meetup at Essen, so starting a thread to discuss.

Suggested time and day is Friday October 26 at 2 pm.

Location and more details to be decided/discussed.

Anyone else up for this? That date is exactly 1 month from now, exciting...
With Essen 5 weeks from now, I was wondering whether there would be another 1PG meetup.

Unfortunately it didn’t go anywhere. I met a few people personally instead.

I’m going again this year.

That's a sweet shirt! I like my grey 1pg shirt but the green looks really nice.

No, I think I'll leave him at home. He made it really hard to see the new games. I think he's slightly jealous. 😉

I'll be wearing a Stonemaier logo - and maybe an Automa Factory logo on the back.

It does seem much harder to arrange a get-together at Essen than it does at 'normal' conventions. If anyone wants to say 'hello', I'll be on the Dragon Dawn Productions stand, wearing the same T-Shirt as everyone else on that stand, but with my name on the front and not anyone else's.

Yeah. Not quite sure why that is.

Will you be at the stand (almost) all the time?

Yep.

I guess because it's more of a retail fair than a boardgame convention.

Yeah, that could be the reason. At Essen there are no good meeting places where you can be sure to get seats for X people next to each other. Also, meeting up to play a game can be easier, because it gives something common to focus on, which breaks the ice.

I've made a note of your location on my Essen list .

Similarly I will spend most of my time demoing for Indie Game Studios/Stronghold Games (probably somewhere around the back of hall three); in previous years I've been the only greybeard among the demo people. Current plans are for Thu am, all day Fri/Sat, Sun pm.

That makes me wonder if you're the guy that taught/demo'd Aeon's End to me 🤔

If it was in 2016-2018 it's quite possible. Did I do a good job?

It was 2 years ago and I would say so.
In our Essen group of about 12, there are 3 people who have everything released so far, 2 with most stuff and a few with at least a base set. And I'm still willing to convert new players.

Yes, they're a great bunch of people, and it helps that I like most of the games.
