Warwick Posted September 20, 2010 Share Posted September 20, 2010 I went to Recruits up in Lee's Summit this weekend. I brought stuff for Warlord demo games in the magnitude of 300 points. I broke army construction rules to make it work, but it's a demo. On one side were six models of Kragmar Dwarves. One the other side were six models of the Crusaders. I also brought my novels and the Savage North to have on a dealer table. I had a great time, but certainly learned a few things I could do better. Number one is bring a minion. Running demos and a dealer table and doing panels and making network connections all at the same time means you don't do any one of them well. So I let the dealer table deal with itself. I ran seven demo games. Kragmar won every game, but some were real nailbiters. I made some heavy converts, who will spread the Warlord goodness all around the KC area. I noticed Jay and Inarah taught a game or two, in addition to running the very popular paint-and-take. They had some excellent Egypt terrain out that people were drooling over. Wish I had brought some Nefsokar lists. Maybe in the Spring I'll have a chance. 300 turned out to be a great number for demo games. I made sure each side had a balance, excluding only magic. 2 troops, three models in each troop, no data card repeated. People loved the game and caught on right away. With all the rules and data cards next to them, I could have walked away after turn one. I did have a strange problem. Some people said things like “Good luck with your game.” and “You've made a great game here.” and “How can we get a copy in our gamestore?” I would gently point out Warlord 2.0 had probably 200 people help on it and I was just the demo guy. And you can order it through any gamestore, but they might even have a copy if you look around. Weird. Archon is in two weeks, a fairly big con in St. Louis. I might whip up another demo. I'll need to find a minion. Where do you shop for good minion? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
