Hey folks. First off, thank you for getting us this far. We’re over 2/3rds of the way there, which is great. We’re just going to keep making the Queen City Conquest better, filling it with more events, guests, and other gaming goodness as time goes on and we gain more funds. Now for some announcements.

Board Game Tournament Update

Hey folks. This is what we know so far about the Board Game Tournament being sponsored by Double Exposure.

If a tournament gets at least 8 players, each of the 4 “final table” participants get a copy of the game. The winner also get a trophy and a free membership to DEXCON 21 (July 2018), and automatic entry into the first elimination round of the 2018 Northeast Regional Championship held there.

If the tournament gets less than 8 players, only the winner gets a copy of the game. We won’t know what the Board Games are until July, but as soon as we do we’ll let you know. Here’s some of the possibilities:

  • Skull Kings
  • Diamonds
  • Nevermore
  • Dimension
  • Neuroshima Hex

Like I said, these are just some of the possibilities. As soon as we know we’ll let you know.

Zombicide

Paul Burleson has agreed to bring Zombicide: Black Plague to the QCC and run 12 hours of a campaign of it. I’m sure he’ll also have some other events on the schedule as well, but if you want the Zombicide campaign experience this is your chance as we have a level for it in the Kickstarter.

Cthulhu Wars

Mike Beiter is bringing his Cthulhu Wars Set to the QCC and if you’re interested in some Lovecraftian wars you can get involved in the extended event with Mike. He’ll be facilitating 12 hours of play using the various boards and optional content from the numerous expansions. It’s as close to the total Cthulhu Wars experience you can get without buying the game.

Updated Guest List

Rach Shelkey, Rob Deobald, and Kate Bullock are the organizers of Breakout Con and the hosts of the podcast It’s like D&D. Kate is also a member of The Gauntlet podcast and writes the blog Bluestocking’s Organic Gaming blog. We’re looking forward to having them in Buffalo for the QCC.

Eric Simon will also be coming out for the Queen City Conquest. Eric is behind Four in Hand GamesSteamscapes and Rockalypse — and the social media coordinator for Ulisses North America which makes games like The Dark Eye and Torg: Eternity.

The D&D Epic

We’re going to have a season 7 epic at the Queen City Conquest. You know, for that season they’re about to announce during the Stream of Annihilation on June 2nd and 3rd. Stay tuned for updates on the details about this EPIC.

Savage Worlds Level

Vickey Beaver of Obatron Productions is the GM for the Savage Worlds level so you can play 12 hours of Savage worlds with Vickey who is an awesome GM. As a bonus, you can probably get a little insight on Obatron and how to get into publishing between sessions or during breaks.

That’s all for this update. We’ll be back with another one of these updates next week. Thank you for backing and please share the kickstarter on your social media of choice, we’d appreciate it.
