So Sunday morning Team Coventry (Allan Powell & I) headed off to Abingdon in deepest darkest Oxfordshire with an ex-alumnus of Abingdon Games Club, Rob Alderman of PRODOS to run some demos and generate more interest in PRODOS’s fantastic game Warzone Resurrection.
It was a long day, a hard day but all in all I feel a very successful day. There were a steady stream of visitors through the shows doors from 10-00am (opening) to roughly 3-00pm when the show started to quieten down. The stall had a lot of visitors and people looking for demo games and Allan & I duly obliged.
I came away with the Cybertronic Mega deck and some new dice for demos.
I think all in all we ran 6 demos to new players of various ages and levels of experience. A great day and we would definitiely do it again!
Same time next year chaps?
Lessons learnt as follows:-
Rob Alderman has an unhealthy addiction to jaffa cakes
when asking a younger player to roll small you mean numbers not how far the dice rolls *LOL*
children with a will to defeat their parents can miraculously pay very close attention, be very focussed and make amazing rolls!
for some reason I am considered a bit of an SME on Cybertronic (maybe I buy too much?)
I need to make so much more terrain than I currently own but not nearly as huge ideas as my current plans
There is always room for more dice!
I love demoing!
