Today's headline reads...
BACK FROM THE CON
Today's news is brought to you a little earlier than usual because we wanted to report on how the Denver Con went (Genghis Con)...
We did a bunch of cool fun things to promote Police Precinct, and...
Played NWME all weekend, and...
Got to spend time with some old acquaintances and meet some new ones.
Brad Talton from Level 99 came up from New Mexico!
Seth Jaffee from Tasty Minstrel Games came up (and over) from Tucson!
Spent time meeting with Nate Hayden about how the design is coming along.
Did an interview with Dice Tower via Roger Hicks who came over from Grand Junction with his "Gang".
Roger is many others offered us some awesome playtesting help with the new game.
By the way...
"New" in this case means "old", because we have had this game under development for many years.
Headin' to the Con. Police Precinct game, play-testing the new game, and much more!!!
Crazy Day today trying to prepare for the Con!
What's the CMG News for today?
Had a nice but brief meeting with Katie today, she has moved on to Block #2 of the board. We expect to be able to post a side-by-side comparison of the the NEW-look and the OLD-look very soon (it will show blocks 1,2,5, and 6).
Also had a really great meeting with Alex Berry today, who's a Colorado game reviewer and now also designer. He showed me a really cool game that is right up CMG's alley as it is smack-dab in the law enforcement world, which is a sector we like (just a little).
He has more testing to do and our pipeline is very full, so not sure where that will go, but I'm optimistic about doing something with him.
What's going on?
Well, here's a couple highlights from today...
Great meeting with Katie today. Talked a lot about Police Precinct 2nd Edition, but also future projects. Very fun to think about where we as a company are headed!!!
Also had a couple of great meetings with DJ Grandpa who I have gotten to know pretty well over the last couple weeks. I think he's the best!!! It's gonna be awesome to see where he takes his podcast. REALLY awesome!
Our friend Uwe over at Academy finished out his KS for Fief with over 400K! Congrats!!!
News for the day...
Play-testing with Nick Z, then...
Katie meeting (she's back from Icelanta!), then...
A new DJ Grandpa show will air. Don't miss it, they're always fun!!!
Not a bad Monday!
PS - Just heard this directly from Spieleschmiede ...
(They are what amounts to.... THE Kickstarter of Germany!)
"We have many supporters asking for Police Precinct in German."
"Really good cooperative game."
This statement comes at the very end of a really nice video made by one of the backers, which explains ALL of the Police Precinct line-up.
Most of the video involves explaining how to play the base-game, but then he also goes into breif looks at the expansionary items (all of them).
To go the the video, click here!

PS - apparently CMG has a lot to say, because look what BGG gives us... "Congratulations - you have received the following microbadge for submitting at least 2000 posts!"
He's talking about his decision to buy the 2nd Edition...
"I couldn't help myself. We own (and love) the first edition, but the photos of the second edition board sucked me in.
I know that you'll enjoy this: I've started to buy copies of certain games for my three kids to take to college with them. PP is for my son's "college collection." He's in seventh grade at the moment.
Take care, and keep up the good work"
