Giveaways at GenCon!

Vanessa and I are looking forward to attending GenCon this year. We can’t wait to see all the new games and to hear the industry buzz. But the most exciting thing is hanging out with 60k other gamers.

While we are there we hope to meet people who listen to our show and give them a little something.
First is our squirrel token from The Broken Token. You can take this token to the Broken Token booth and get 10% off your purchase.

Next are some custom dice with our logo.


Finally, no convention is complete without some Moon Pies



There will be several ways to get these. One is we’ll be at the Dice Tower Booth (#3030) from 11am – 12pm on Saturday. Come by, say hi, and get some swag.

During the other days, I’ll be tweeting locations Vanessa and I will be to get some swag. So make sure to follow us on twitter @DiceAndNames. In addition, I’ve setup a texting mechanism such that you’ll be notified via text when and where we will be. To receive these texts, text EZRDTN to 313131. This will be the only time I use these texts so don’t worry about receiving any spam.

In addition I’ll be participating in two events at GenCon. First is the Neuroshima Hex Grudge Match and the second is the Battle of the Board Game Networks. Both of those events will be a lot of fun so hope to see some of you there.

Can’t wait to meet as many of you as I can!

Note: We do have limited supplies of the swag items. so don’t wait too long.

Diamonds Tournament at MACE – Charlotte, NC, Nov. 8th

As teased in Episode 48, we are going to run a special event our local convention, MACE, in Charlotte, NC on November 8th. We are hosting a Diamonds tournament.

Diamonds is the new trick-taking game designed by Mike Fitzgerald and published by Stronghold Games. Tony is a huge fan of this game because it’s quick, easy to learn, and fun to play. So we thought it would be the perfect game for our MACE event. There are 12 slots open for this event and we’ll play multiple rounds until we have a winner.

Stronghold Games is graciously sponsoring the event and is providing two copies of Diamonds to give away as prizes. The winner of the tournament will win a copy and then we’ll do a random drawing to give away the other copy.

We also want to use this event to raise money for Gamers For Cures which is a charity ran by Dan Patriss of the Geek All-Stars podcast. There will be $1 entry fee into the tournament and you’ll be able to buy additional raffle tickets at $1 a piece in order to earn more entries into the raffle. All proceeds will go to charity.

The event will be on Saturday, November 8th from 3pm – 7pm. You must have a MACE pass to participate and you can sign up online.

So come on out, have fun, get a chance to win a great game and support a worthwhile charity. Hope to see you there!
