Tried to get the word out by word of mouth, and decided on here might be a good way to go about it as well. The tables for gaming had to be altered from what was on the printed schedule due to some logistics issues. (Logic?! At a con?! Say it isn't so.)
Games on GrowTix should reflect accurate locations (and hopefully always reflected accurate times). Also, there are printed schedules available on the table just beside registration. ALSO, ALSO, I attached the Xcel spreadsheet of the schedule if anyone wants to peruse.
Joseph Wolf's Dreadmere games are still at Table 1 - under the big Dredmere banner. Tables 2 ,3, and 10 are various Roleplaying games, as per the schedule Table 4 is an all-day, every-day Freeblades demo - drop by and check it out! Tables 6 thru 9 are for Gamers looking for Pathfinder/Starfinder D&D Adventure League is now tables 11 thru 23, but Gamers taking part in DDAL are encouraged to head to Table 18, where Colby (and crew) will be marshaling GMs, getting players into games, and generally just controlling the madness of League events. Tables 24 thru 28 are going to host Frog God Games (in the Arabian rooms) ReaperCon 2019 Gaming.xlsx
As some of you know, @buglips*the*goblin and I paint some German Infantry of WWII for Warlord Games tabletop game Bolt Action - or another similar set of rules. You can find our WIP thread ->here<-
But though the key to success is hard work, all good projects some when end somewhere. To celebrate this, we decided to set up a Show Off thread. So ... enjoy what we come up with until all of our Germans are painted ... (which will be in ten years or so)
First off - the first 5 men of my winter unit.
More to come!
@buglips*the*goblin You're next.
In 2011 the original Gameduino brought vintage gaming to the Arduino.
In 2013 Gameduino 2 set a new standard in hand-held open-source gaming.
Now Gameduino 3 raises the bar again. Even more processing power for your games and applications - plus real video playback, all using a regular Arduino.
You'll need an HTML5 capable browser to see this content. Play Replay with sound Play with
sound 00:00 0:23 It's completely compatible with the Gameduino 2, but adds even more graphics power, smooth video playback, and dozens of new features. Together with microSD storage for game assets, headphone audio output, and a top quality full-color 4.3 inch touch screen.
Gameduino 3 is designed, tested, documented and the prototypes are built. The videos were all taken from the real hardware - everything you see is running on a stock Arduino with the prototypes. What needs to happen next is a manufacturing run. Your pledge gets you a Gameduino 3 from this first run.
The Gameduino 3 uses an FT810 EVE, an integrated graphics processor that is backwards compatible with the FT800 in Gameduino 2, and has about 4X more power:
video decompressor for full-screen 30 fps video 1 megabyte of onboard RAM, 1 gigapixel per second fill rate microSD card and audio output with sample playback high contrast 4.3" 480x272 LCD panel with resistive touch screen support for maps created with the Tiled Map Editor PNG image loading from microSD accelerated JPEG loader hardware portrait/landscape orientation switching Full support for Arduino, ESP8266 and Teensy 3.2 online tools for graphics, audio, font and video preparation All these features are available from the GD library for Arduino, which now includes full support for both GD2 and GD3. The Gameduino 2 Cookbook will gain an extra chapter on the Gameduino 3's extra features.
There are examples and code on the project page at http://excamera.com/sphinx/gameduino3/.
The Gameduino 3 hardware, software and documentation is open-source (BSD license).
Graphics used in the demos are by Kenney, and videos are from pixabay and the internet archive. The music is High School Snaps by Broke for Free.
Pretty much what it says on the tin. I'd be pretty shocked to see GW allow Wizkids to produce miniatures, unless they're way out of scale with GW's stuff, but it'll be interesting to see what kind of board games they come up with.
I'm also wondering if they're not looking for someone to take the place of the recently expired partnership with Fantasy Flight Games.

A friend of mine just opened a comic/MtG/vintage video game store. The main focus is on comics but he would like to have some games available for customers to purchase.
He was looking at games that were less than $30, and I feel that as it's not his core business that he should stick to party games and games that have a comics related tie in.
My suggestions were:
Card Against Humanity (plenty of expansions)
Legendary: Marvel Deck building and expansions
Munchkin (any super hero related version)
I know that there are a lot of people that play more board and party games than I do (most of what I listed I learned about at either RCon or NEMPA paint days), so I figured I would mine the experience of the Forum. Any suggestions? Feel free to give a brief description; I'm lazy and BGG is blocked from work anyways.
