I am whatever the opposite of worried is. Basically I thought this would be a very easy way for two groups to work together for mutual benefit. Apparently I was mistaken because neither side seems to... I mean I don't know how else to say it, but care. If Crafty doesn't think it will help Crafty and the Con doesn't think it will help the Con, I'm certainly not going to any special effort to force it to happen. It was just a brainstorm I had, it didn't pan out, I'll end up getting it cheaper through the store when it comes out in October.

Or if you are really worried about it then it's not too late to order it through the Kickstarter pledge manager and get it delivered.

It's called WashingCon in Washington, DC and it's in early September. I'll check on Foam Brains!

What con is it? And when is it? You could see if Foam Brains is attending- according to Crafty's main page they go to a lot of cons and they sell Crafty's stuff. Maybe if the timing is right they'll have some early copies.

Aw, per Crafty retail is expected in October.

Aw, sounds like most likely won't be in time for the local Con. Oh well. Thank you for the update!

@Mac (and anyone else who's interested): Crafty just sent another update out for Mistborn: House War. They expect the shipment to leave China later this week and arrive in the States around the beginning of August. Estimate about a week for customs (if all goes well) and then Crafty will have it in hand and will start shipping it. European distributor will have it about a week later. Long story short: Most backers will probably have the game in hand by the end of August. Crafty didn't mention when retailers would get the game in the update but I asked them about it in the comments. I'll let you know what they say.

Ooo, interesting new WoB. From his phrasing it's hardly confirmation but apparently Brandon believes that Miles figured out how to burn a metalmind without swallowing it.

Stomach. Got it. Thanks everyone!

AHA!

Argh. Someone is asking for a citation on the "you can burn metal piercing your body, not just in your stomach" thing. I've searched "burn hemalury" and "allomancy spike". Does anyone remember anything about the line that might help me find it?

A Lurcher would likely miss the intended point of the statement, "Like finding a needle in a haystack."

Ah, gotcha. Good luck! To the best of my knowledge nobody has demo'd the game at any conventions other than Crafty themselves. I've had similar emails that have gone unanswered by them in the past. I think that they get busy and stuff like that gets pushed to the side. You could try posting something in the forums- they're pretty good about responding there at least.

Also, hoping to get a response at least this year to my "hey do you wanna send in a poster?" email, and so I'm trying new angles. Didn't know if "my buddy (slight exaggeration, I know) demo'd your game at this other convention," might not at least get them to give me an actual no this time.

I might buy a copy by then, I'm just kicking around the idea of demo'ing it at this convention. I dunno, not that there is much in the way of advice that can go into demo'ing, but in case anyone else has done it and thought to themselves, huh I wish I'd thought of that first...

*though. I've ran a couple games here locally when I was playtesting it. Why?
Herowannabe
Wed Jul 12, 2017 9:36 pm
Crafty ran a couple demos, and I seem to remember someone on Crafty's forums (Tellingdwar I think?) who attended that. That was pretty early edition
Herowannabe
Wed Jul 12, 2017 9:35 pm
Someone here ran a demo for House War at another con, right? Or did they just attend a demo?

Welcome elenaparis! Re: Unboxing video: yeah... if you look at the comments on that update you'll see that I had one or two things to say about the quality of that video. Granted, I don't think the video was originally intended to be for the general public, just something that the manufacturer made for Crafty and then Crafty decided to share it with us. But still. :roll:

Ah. I shall swing by my Friendly Local Gaming Store today and see what news they have. It's also nearly time for our yearly board game convention. I will reach out to Crafty again and see if they want to send me a poster i can put up on the wall. They have never responded to me in the years I've been asking; does anyone else have a closer connection? Should I just stop even asking? Also, Hello elenaparis! Nice to meet you!

The unboxing video was a bit odd: I was like "oh cool we'll see the board laid out and stuff" and they were like "nah, we'll just take everything out, still in its plastic, then put it back in."

@Mac (and/or anyone else who hasn't backed Mistborn: House War but is still interested in it's progress): Manufacturing of the game is done, they posted an unboxing video for backers. Now I believe all that's left is shipping the games from the manufacturer to the distributors and from there to the customers.
