There is a news post on lvl99games.com stating that Argent will be available in small quantities at GenCon this year. I am wondering if Kickstarter backers that are attending will be able to pick their copy up at the con? Either way, I'm looking forward to getting a chance to see it in action!

yeah I would be a bit upset if they didn't give at least some KS backers a chance to pick this up at gen con.

I mean its whatever but even shadows of brimstone is handing out 50 copies to KS backers.

I wouldn't be upset myself. There are a lot of KS backers, and they're unlikely to have enough for all of them at GenCon.

We aren't planning to hand games out to backers at GenCon. The version we will have will be the regular edition (not the foil-wrapped Chancellor's Edition that backers are getting). Also, we're not sure that we'll have the Summer Break Expansion and Argent Pixel Tactics pack that backers are getting for free.

Plus, you've already paid for shipping anyway, so why lug it home in your suitcase where it might get damaged and where it will take up space you could use for other things? We expect that the KS editions will ship out within 1-2 weeks of GenCon, so you won't have to wait long anyway.

If you just want to PLAY Argent at GenCon (which I suspect is the more likely case), we will have loaner copies for KS backers to take over the evening and try out, plus Trey will be running games all weekend, so you can probably catch him at the booth and schedule a play-with-the-designer after the dealer hall closes.

That answers my question - and I understand! I look forward to trying the game out!

Thanks Brad!

Indeed, please stop by! I can't wait to hear what you guys think about the final product! I look forward to meeting those of you who will be at Gen Con, and if not, I will be at BGG con as well.

So, after looking at the first copy (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/level99games/argent-the...), I've decided to skip pre-launch at GenCon and fix a few usability/production issues. I know it's kind of lame to be waiting an extra month (we're projecting mid-to-late September ship dates now), but it's more important to deliver a superior game experience than to make sure we're on time for GenCon.

So, we'll still have our loaner copies and Trey will be doing hosted games, but what you see at GenCon won't be the final product.

Thanks, and sorry for the trouble with this. -_-

Apparently the two expansions were printed with the wrong finish (not linen).

I was more apologizing to those who won't be able to pick up their copies at GenCon due to these issues.

I'm looking forward to a demo, myself. I never had a chance to at BGG Con.
