So what is different about teaching Kings of War at Gencon vs. Origins? Size, pure and simple. Gencon is significantly larger - and will only give me half a table for each demo - so things are a little crowded. Not in the room to play the game, but just squeezing everyone together.
With the larger size comes more people! I held 10 sessions with 12 seats each. The day before the show started all sold out. Of course this did not mean everyone showed up, but overall I had 106 people learn this game in 53 games over the four day convention. It was a bit frustrating when I had fifteen people show up for one session - one ended up leaving while the other two extra doubled up with a friend.
I had help from my son Jon, as well as my local players Kara (current reigning US Champion) and Amy with the games. I did manage to actually still have a voice at the end of everything, and that is a bonus!
|So is it lucky or unlucky to get to play against Jon?|
|Some people got personal attention from Kara|
|Kara enjoys helping another gamer girl beat up on her boyfriend|
|Having so much fun I can't even keep the camera steady!|
