10 Days – Dresden Files, Video Games, Boardgames, & Collectors Inn

Hey folks. 10 Days to go and we’re at 98 backers and 7,500 bucks. We’ve almost reached that 100 backer mark and I’d love to see it hit before tomorrow is over. Who will be our 100th backer? It’s a mystery. Also, let’s talk about late night gaming. That’s our first stretch goal, and if we don’t get to $10,000 dollars we’re not going to be able to do it.

New Events

The Dresden Files at the QCC.
Tom Lutz, your favorite gaming minister and mine, is coming to the QCC with the Dresden Files. Here’s the games description. You are one of the many wonderful denizens of Dresden files books you know, a wizard, white court vampire, werewolf or any of the other creatures that prowl the streets.  You have all ended up here at the QCC because there is a dire magical threat threatening our convention goers that will have horrible consequence for the world at large.  It is up to you to save us, the city of Buffalo, and perhaps even our plane of existence.

Open Video Gaming
Karol is coming back with his partner Tim in video gaming and they’re bring a variety of video games for you to play and enjoy both new and old. In the past they’ve brought an Atari 2600, the NES, a Famicom, Apple ][ with Oregon Trail, TI99/A, the Sega Dreamcast, Playstation’s, Xbox 360’s, Wii’s, WiiU’s and more. If there’s something you’ve been itching to play there’s a chance they might be able to bring it to the show.

Board Game Event Update

We have Zombicide and Cthulhu Wars levels that you can still get involved in. They’re amazing games and the facilitators have most if not all of the expansions for those games. That’s hundreds of dollars of game and you get to experience it for your cost of entry to the convention. It’s a great way to get your game on and experience something you might not be able to anywhere else.

Collector’s Inn Strikes Again

Joe from Collectors Inn has hit us with another great offer.  Joe will be giving all the backers who attend the show a coupon for 5% for every $500 over our funding goal on one item, capping out at 30%. That means if we get to $12,000 bucks everyone with a badge will get a 30% off coupon for one item either at the convention or at Collectors Inn.

The 2017 QCC Kickstarter

It’s time for the QCC kickstarter 2017. We’re up and running for our sixth year and we need and would love your support. Here’s the basic levels for the kickstarter followed by a few things about this years show.

Our special guest, if we fund, is Stacy Dellorfano. Stacy  is the founder and Lead Organizer of ConTessa, an organization dedicated to normalizing the presence of traditionally under-represented people in gaming leadership positions by running events at conventions all over the United States, and hopefully soon, the world!

After a successful career in the tech industry working in video games and e-commerce, Stacy left the rat race to pursue gaming full-time. Her most recent work was the production of the Swords & Wizardry 3rd printing Kickstarter, which featured a redesigned book with artwork and design created entirely by women. She also contributed an adventure to the Kickstarter entitled ‘Zaya’s Promise’, and is currently working on two books for Lamentations of the Flame Princess.

Stacy lives in sunny Southern California with her husband and their evil cat, Bastet.

Collector’s Inn has been marvelous to us this year helping us lower our kickstarter goal number with their sponsorship and offering some excellent deals to our backers and folks who participate in the kickoff party later today at Collectors Inn.  If the Kickstarter hits $9,000 in 72 hours Collectors Inn will give a discount to everyone who funds the con that can be used at any time at the store or during the QCC. The deal is buy one get one 1/2 off on in Stock items plus special orders and pre-orders are 30% off. Contact Collectors inn via Facebook for further details.

Events & Games

We already have a number of amazing events already lined up this year for the con which include a D&D Epic, the Double Exposure Board Game Tournament — the games for the tournament won’t be announced until July, on Sunday we’ll be having our Klask tournament hosted by Buffalo Games, and Sunday is also Family Day. On Family Day we’ll have Joe from Collectors Inn teaching and then having a magic draft for kids, a series of family friendly board and role playing games will be run, and there will be mini painting for the kids, and that’s just to start. We’ll be actively searching for other events and games to have run at the convention.

New Registration System

We’re using Table Top Events for the conventions registration system this year. It’s used by GaryCon, EverCon, GenghisCon, and more. We think it’ll be a very nice upgrade in usability from our previous offerings and make your experience in creating and registering for events much more enjoyable. We’re almost ready to start letting you folks get your events up and ready to go, and believe me, we want them. As soon as we have our Table Top Events up and running we’ll be sure to let you know.

 That’s all for now but we’ll be back soon with more announcements and some fun things too so stay tuned here.
