Hello there my wicked friends!
It's been a few weeks and few conventions since we last talked, but a lot sure has happened since we announced we were going to PAX South. In that time we've made buttons, signs, website improvements (with more to come), sold out (again!) and made many new friends!
So let's start this recap off with the wonderful (and sad) fact that we've sold out of all copies of Wicked Apples once again. It's been tough to keep copies around, especially after conventions. But fear not because we will be reordering again shortly. If you are interested in a purchasing Wicked Apples I recommend joining our waiting list by emailing us via the contact page.
PAX South itself was an amazing convention. Not only was it my first PAX South, it was also my first time being a PAX exhibitor. The Indie Showcase that we were part of housed 8 great games and the comradery behind the scenes was amazing. Just check out this crew!
A special shout out to "Wheels" our enforcer (pictured above to the far right) who made sure everything ran smooth as butta.
PAX attendees were also a highlight of this trip. Yes, you! We were often selling and signing in between (and during) game demos and everyone was extremely patient and understanding. Even during games friends and strangers were joking and laughing like they had know each other for years. This is what tabletop is all about.
I want to give a special shout out to one attendee in particular, "Demo Kid". I don't know his real name, but "Demo Kid" hung out at our table for most of the convention. He would jump in when we needed more players, jump out when new people needed a seat and helped new players learn the ropes. As if that wasn't enough, he gave us back his winner button when we ran out and even gave up his extra copy of Wicked Apples to someone looking to buy one after we sold out. If you're out there "Demo Kid" this one's for you, *tosses a handful of confetti into the air before realizing it was a horrible idea and spends the next hour cleaning up the pieces*
Also a big thanks to my demo partner Brenda, who is a Master Planner (official title), great friend and preventer of most of my bad ideas. Brenda this one's for you, *tosses a handful of glitter into the air and realizes he should not be left unsupervised with craft supplies*
