With Dragonflight beginning tomorrow, we thought it would be useful to have a quick post to talk about our plans.
What is Dragonflight?
Dragonflight is a tabletop convention that's been going on since 1980. This year the convention runs Friday (tomorrow) through Sunday at the Bellevue Hilton.
What is Weather Gage showing?
We'll be showing Congress: The Board Game and demoing it for passersby. We'll also be running a Dragonflight special election in conjunction with their special scavenger hunt.
Wait, a scavenger hunt?
Yes, of a sort. There will be a meta-game for attendees to encourage visiting everyone's booths and collect items/participate in events.
Is this "special election" like the one you hosted at ETX?
Mostly yes. At ETX we had visitors cast an online ballot for their favorite senator from Congress: The Board Game in order to be entered into a special drawing. For Dragonflight we're keeping the special election a part of this scavenger hunt and giving out swag to attendees.
What is the state of Congress: The Board Game?
We're still working with our late-stage prototype materials, but we've done a great deal of rebalancing in regards to certain in-game abilities. So, we will be showing the game, but we are not selling a product.
What do you hope to get out of Dragonflight?
Our primary goal at the moment is visibility. We're still very small, with one product, so we want as many eyes as possible. Folks at ETX and other places so far have really enjoyed playing Congress: The Board Game and we want as many people to play as we can get.
What happens after Dragonflight?
The week after this is PAX West, and we'll be in attendance there. After that, we will have to see. We are busy working but have nothing official to announce. Thank you everyone!
