Hello gamers. It took us a little longer than we were hoping to get our heads around Tabletop Events but things are up and running now. Let’s talk about what what is happening with the QCC.
Those folks who got this through the kickstarter have access and should register for events now. In a week or so we’ll open up event registration to everyone else. CLICK HERE.
If you should have access and don’t, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
You can buy your badge if you missed out on the Kickstarter. If you’ve already gotten your badge from the kickstarter we encourage you to tell your friends, family, enemies, monarchs, servants, pets…wait, sorry. I was just told by my ruler that we can’t have pets at the convention center so while you can tell them and they could buy badges but they can’t attend. Still, tell your people if they pass for human and send them here. CLICK HERE.
You are also able to purchase con merchandise to be picked up at registration desk during the con.
Over 100 Events So Far
We have a lot of events already and that’s thanks to all of you. This convention doesn’t happen without your games. If you’d like to check out the event list you can click on this link. CLICK HERE.
We’re always looking for more events of all kinds. We could really use some more board game events if possible.
Well that’s the inside info on what’s going on at the QCC. You’ll be hearing more from us now that we have all the back end stuff set up. We can’t wait to see you in September and I hope you all play great games until then.
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.
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.
Hey folks. The Kickstarter is right around $7,500 today and moving along with 11 days left. With that I wanted to point out a level you might not be aware of. If you’re a game company, podcast, blog, etcetera, and are looking for a little bit of advertising then you should check out the Ambassador level. For $25 you can get your logo and links on our website, be part of our digital slide shows during the con, and become an Ambassador of Gaming for the Queen City Conquest. Chris is also likely to mention you on one of the numerous Misdirected Mark Shows he’s a part of.
Over on Table Top Events, where you can put your events in you’d like to run…like right now, we’ve had some new submissions.
Paint & Take
Heather Heim, who has been an excellent vendor and supporter of the Queen City Conquest in the past, is having a couple of Paint & Take events. It’s a good chance to get your miniature painting on.
Tim Bryant is bringing out the DREAD TOWER and mashing it up with a little Arthurian lore. Here’s the game description:
The King suffers and the land suffers. You are Knight of Camelot, sent forth to retrieve the Holy Grail and restore Arthur and his kingdom. Evil abounds in all guises– sorcerers, dragons, and lurking horrors most perilous. Chivalry and honor guide your every deed, but the highest glory comes to those alone who dare risk all for King and country. This game features The Impossible Dream’s Dread RPG, which uses a JENGA tower for task resolution. No prior experience necessary. Characters provided.
Savage Worlds Broken Down
There’s that special Savage Kings of the World level that’s part of the Kickstarter. It was a one price for five people but now it’s been broken down into individual levels. So if you want to get in on the Savage Worlds action with Obatron Productions Vickey Beaver, then now is the time to back at that level.
That’s all for now but we’ll be back tomorrow with your 10 days left update.
