Off to Consimworld Expo 2015!

Very, very early tomorrow morning we are taking off for the 2015 CSW Expo in Tempe, Arizona. I go to this most years; this year there are over 300 attendees and while it draws a lot of monster gamers (people who play monster-sized games, not people who play games about monsters or who look like monsters, though there are a few who look like Igor from Hilarious House of Frightenstein) it also draws a lot of hardcore, long-term gamers, many of whom are designers themselves. It’s fun to get together with them and swap tales and techniques.

There will be a lot of publishers there, including GMT, so I will present the work done so far on Denouement (2-player COIN system, French Algerian War) and see if they are interested in Thunder Out Of China (4-player COIN system, China 1937-41, trying to make it a fun game for four passive-aggressives) too. Also bringing eight or nine other things to show and test:

Algeria Redux, revision of original 2000 Algeria game with cleaned-up rules, scenarios and 140 counters
Winter Thunder, revision of 2005 Bulge game, with fewer counters and simpler rules
Palace Coup, multiplayer game on coup d’etat
Caudillo, multiplayer game on power politics in thinly disguised post-Chavez Venezuela
Binh Dinh 69, simpler game on Binh Dinh province in Vietnam 1969
– Binh Dinh and Kandahar modules of District Commander system
– and Victory Point Games will be there for playtesting of their developed version of Ukrainian Crisis
Will be there all week, may be able to post small things and pictures – bringing new tablet with tiny keyboard, and Aki gave me his old Android phone I can use as a camera.
