I don't think you'll be disappointed. Quite a range of types of games; be sure to stop by the Fantasy Flight room to check out their latest games.

I posted a thread a few weeks ago, and one of the posters was going to work the FF booth, and he said he's bring BGG buttons that they had at origins, so even if I wasn't already going to check them out, now I need to .

Here is my thread...

Cool, thanks for the tip on the BGG buttons. I missed your posting a few weeks ago.

I sent in my registration to CoftN six weeks ago or so....and haven't heard back from them.

I emailed them last week to see if they got my registration...and haven't heard back.

Anyone else have similar problems?

PS I am really excited about the Con....I just hope I am registered!

My friend, my brother and myself pre-registered and all received postcards in the mail indicating we are registered. Not sure why you wouldn't have.

I've seen your email on our shared inbox. Hopefully Kelly will be catching up on those shortly. If not, I'll keep an eye out for your name this Saturday when we pull tickets.

Chad mentioned that we sent out reminder cards that say whether or not you've registered. Those went out around Christmas, so if you haven't been to CotN in the last couple of years and we didn't receive your registration by mid-December then you wouldn't have gotten one.

Sorry for the delay!

I think I sent in my registration just after Christmas--so that would explain it.

Thank you!

Mike,

Do you know if Fantasy Flight is going to demo "Tide of Iron" next weekend? I read on their site it's release date has been delayed due to late shipment of playing pieces.

They have events scheduled for it, but otherwise I don't know. Hopefully they got a few sets so they can demo it. Probably the best place to ask would be the FFG Message Boards.

Hope this helps,

Ryan - Did you enjoy the Con? I totally forgot about the BGG buttons while playing in the FFG room; did you get one?
