What a hectic day!
Back from the Mantic Open Day and a lot of talking to excited people about Deadzone, DreadBall, Dwarf King’s Hold and Pandora. Every game has its fans and every fan has a question.
I do enjoy these events, and it’s always good to get a chance to see what people are up to, which games they are enjoying, what they’ve found tricky or confusing and so on. Listening to feedback is what helps me to do things better next time. At least I can try 😉
The DreadBall tournament went well with games running nicely in the hour slots and a great deal of cheering at the end for the winners. Hardly any questions is always a nice thing for me to hear from the ref, and being told that the same team is both unwinnable with and against suggests that it’s not badly balanced either. Season 2’s bogeys seem to be the Judwan at present, though I think it’s early days and things will settle down.
Of course, the big focus for me was Deadzone, and that went down well with demos running all day and many questions in the seminars. It was great to talk to lots of people who’d not only read the Alpha but had played it and had comments and suggestions. All good stuff.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to take my brain out and rest it somewhere soft and quiet for an hour or three. Might need it in the morning…
