Bags for sale, eh? Don't tease us like that, let's see some pics!

Also, I don't suppose you need anyone (who can only speak English, unfortunately) to help man the booth, run things behind the scenes, or run around buying new releases, do you?

Jolly good show. Presumably we'll be allowed to store our game purchases in the BGG stand.

Do you know what Hall / Stand number you have?

It's not a booth, or a simple stand within one of the halls,
it must be the holy shrine of all gamers...

We're not worthy. (...but you could be sure we'll be there! devil )

Probably not, Jon. As much as I wish I could, we will need the space for ourselves.

We'll be located in 10, next to Rio Grande. (I think that's 10, right?)

Yes, that's Hall 10, prime real estate!

No doubt you will have online access on the booths...? Wifi for all? Trading? Swap meets?

What's Aldie?

    Aldie is not for sale whole, or in part. His soul is held in a blind trust indefinitely until he pays the remainder of his loan off to the devil -- part of the deal he made to make a web site about boardgaming profitable.

I seriously think they should have an Aldie doll, which, when you pull the string in his back, shouts out "Helllooooo EVERYBOOODYYYY!!!!!"... and then spills your wine on your mixing board .

Any truth to the rumour that one of the bags for sale will have all of BGG's camera and podcast equipment in it?

Bugger - I'm probably not going this year!

I hope this becomes a regular attendance.

Doesn't this mean you're going to be stuck manning the booth most of the time, instead of getting to wander?

Jon, every time I see your avatar I mean to mention this. You must be this HUGE OU fan. That's wonderful. I graduated from OU also as did my wife and every adult in both of our families. Do you live in OK?
