Makes a change from 5 exclamation marks...
In just over 1 hour there will only be another 11 weeks
to the 24th August, the first day of the Convention...
Got your attention yet?
Never mind the bug
OK - we're more or less there with the main things for our little part of the Convention in that I'll have a few decks of cards for people to play with in this function room we're camping out in with the other game makers for the duration. I'll report back in here on domestic arrangements as Eelco lets me know them (like whether people can play for money if they so wish) and also more practical things that we might have to arrange such as pots for winnings, a projector for presentations (I'm currently preparing something fairly basic in Powerpoint
) and a few instructions-on-how-to-play-CMO printed up for people to use.
I'm feeling quite organised which is probably not a good thing as this usually means I've forgotten something really major, so in these last few weeks (which will of course seem to drag by but will suddenly speed up when we'd rather it didn't
) please feel free to post the bleeding obvious in here especially if you're one of the people who've had advance copies of the 'how to play CMO' booklet as the game can be played with normal sets of cards of course. If you haven't got a copy of the booklet we prepared earlier in the thread...PM me for the download location!
What I do need help with now, whether or not you're going to the convention, is feedback on how CMO can be played because - I'm moronically card-phobic, especially with poker-type cardgames
So I need practical feedback on gameplay from people who can
play poker, bridge or at least gin-rummy to a reasonable standard so I at least sound as though I know a bit about it when someone actually gets brave enough to play the thing in Birmingham.
Any help gratefully recieved in fact
