I'll have my personal prototype with me at GenCon. Look for the guy with big, grumpy dice on his chest.

Rumor has it that designer Ben Rosset will be there, as well, and I imagine he'll have a copy in tow.

Cheers,
Chris

The rumors are true. I will indeed be at GenCon and will also have a copy with me. I'll try to setup at least a couple of demo times and publicize them ahead of time, but in general, you can probably catch me in open gaming (which I think is Hall D), at or around the Game Salute tables. The best times to check out Brew Crafters will probably be evenings and late night. Follow me on Twitter @BenRosset for updates during the show about when I'll have BrewCrafters out for demo.

Cheers,
Ben

If I have time, count on me hunting you down, too. This game is exciting to me. I'm glad the evenings are good for it; my days are full, working for Greater Than Games.

This is FANTASTIC news! I love board games, I love beer. It's like 2 of the greatest things in life colliding. Adam & Eve, Pulled Pork & Cole Slaw, Bill & Ted.... ok... maybe not the last analogy but you get my point.

I'll follow you on twitter and I come find you guys over in Hall D. Between this and Compounded, DHMG has become a big time sink for my Gen Con experience. Looking forward to it!

Kirk, I am sorry none of us from either podcast or people who tested this saw your question BUT here goes.

Brew Crafters is flat out a fun game.

It's not a hoot and holler fun game, it's an Agricola fun game. It's got some great decisions some GOOD brain burn and some combo making as well.

I think anyone who likes BEER, and worker placement (a La Agric but with less blocking in a good way) will really enjoy it.

I have played it 4 times now and loved it every time. And hope you will too!

Ben is a beast with testing so I bet you will see more going on at cons (such as BGG-con) and who knows I bet they even try for a live play event --- I have not heard anything that says yes to this but with all of the other DHM titles Chris has managed to do this so I bet he manages to do it again which would be fun as all hell.

Feel free to ask any Q's one of us will answer best we can!

Oh and lookie here, the Campaign is slated to start TOMORROW!!! Get your CC ready!

thanks for the update. I've been watching for the campaign to go up. I like beer and have grown to like worker placement, so I think this will be a good fit. I hope my slush fund has enough green in it!
Thanks!
