Good gaming never goes out of style. The Old School Renaissance Group caters to those gamers who prefer the fast and imaginative play common in the golden age of gaming, where the battle cry is "rulings, not rules!" The OSRG is a hub for these gamers at Gen Con Indy, highlighting the creators and companies making new material in that old-school style. Featuring over 90 new titles for old-school gaming, the OSRG booth poses the question, perhaps the golden age of gaming is happening now.
Day three was quite busy and the traffic heavy. Today began with a short podcast interview about the OSR that should appear in a week or so at All Games Considered and we've now sold out of several different titles and I believe have only a few remaining copies of some others. I have to say the highlight of the day was the nice long conversation with Frank Mentzer who dropped by the booth to talk about his future plans. I do admit finding them very interesting.
We've been having a blast so far and I'm really pleased to be so busy.
***Picture in which one can see the booth, John Bingham, Tavis Allison (who's really helping out with the Gygax Memorial Fund) and the back of Sniderman of The Savage Afterworld. As you can see from his shirt, he's a master of fashion.... :)***
I am tuckered out. :) Finally got to met John Bingham and chat a bit as well hang out at the booth. Friday went well, lots of people and conversation. Sorry I haven't any pictures today - I honestly forgot to take any. I am total picture-taker fail. :) I think tomorrow may be a bit of madness given the Thursday response. Sat is usually the big day as all the weekenders come it.
Whew! It's been a very busy day at the OSR booth. We've got everything up and running and we're doing good business. There's been a lot of smiling faces when it dawns on a passer-by what exactly the booth is selling. :) Had some great chats with various people, met some of you guys I know from online. Tomorrow is the Gen Con tourney game, The Obsidian Sands of Syncrates. I'll have to see which of the 3 groups manages to claim 1st place.
Below is a less-blurry pick of the big line of racks in the booth. Thanks to everyone who's come out all ready and hope those of you who haven't drop by for a look.
Here are two pics of the booth from right after we moved everything in from the loading dock. It's always hot and sweaty work. The AC isn't turned on until Wednesday evening after they kick out all of the exhibitors. :)
