Cubicle 7 Road Show 2007

Well, as it seems that sleep is not my friend this evening I've decided to abandon it for a while longer and seek some of my gaming friends thoughts.

Cubicle 7 is looking at hitting the road this year and attending more conventions. Both to trade at and also, if we can get the helpers, to run games of our products (most notably SLA Industries and Victoriana).

The Conventions I'm currently looking at are as follows:

January 26/28 - Warpcon (Cork, Ireland) (probably only in a networking/PR capacity due to drivers maternity leave:p)
March 18/22 - Game Expo,(Las Vegas, USA)  (probably only in a networking/PR capacity)
March 24/25 - Conpulsion (Edinburgh)
April 13/15 - Battlemasters (Leicester) - Not sure, anyone tell me anything about this one?
April 21 - SALUTE - C7 won't be trading at this one next year but it's a bloody excellent convention so thought I'd mention it :p
April 23/26 - GAMA Trade Show (Las Vegas, USA) - On the Studio 2 stand
May 25/27 - GenCon France (Paris, France) - maybe. Looking into it.
June 2/3 - UK Games Expo (Birmingham) - seriously considering this one. Need more info.
June 23/24 - Game 07 (Manchester) - again, thinking about this one.
August 16/19 - GenCon Indy (Indianapolis, USA)
August 30 - September 02 - GenCon UK (Reading)
December 01 - Dragonmeet (London)

The ones in bold are the one's we're either 100% or close to 100% intending on attending.

So, any I've missed that I 'have to' be at? Any comments on any I've listed (positive or negative). Give me feedback guys and gals!

The space for Game07 is very limited at this point. Last I looked at the plans, there was almost no spare space. Though I did have some ideas of where more small trade space can be squeezed in, these have not been discussed with the committee yet. In shot, you'll want to decide very soon.

That said, I'd personally love to see you guys at the show, plus Manchester rocks!

The obvious role playing convention you have missed is Conception (New Milton, Hants? I think) 31 Jan - 4 Feb.

If what you want to do is run/demo games its a great place to do it BUT I'm not sure if there is any accommodation left onsite although I'm sure there are lots of B&Bs locally, its that kind of area.

I know a lot of people who say that its the most fun con for pure roleplaying (ie not a cross over event - virtually nothing except tabletop and LARP/Freeforms).

Forums are here http://www.ukroleplayers.com/index.php?f=4&sid=5da37fff51ca87b256a1249da6660b2a

Actually, I tell a lie, quite a lot of boardgaming as well! And partying and drinking the bar dry...

Not actually going to say anything but maybe you should read from the Critical Miss article on Conception 2002 and the response from the organisers Official Response From Conception 2002 Organisers...

I'm not going to argue with you... simply point out that 2002 was 'then' and next year is ... ooh... 2007...

And something like 400 core role players who have booked out all the available accommodation 6 weeks before the event can't all be wrong!

No argument from me, Angus requested both "positive and negative" feedback...

Hey Angus, enquiring minds have been wondering how well your "Indie" stock did at Dragonmeet. Anything I can pass on to them?

PS. The Collective will probably have a presence at UK Games Expo, since it's local.

I'm up for anything I can get to! :-)
Might be able to convince Claire to come to Paris and translate!

Well, I think that I can do the spare bed thing for UK Games Expo.

For some bizarre reason I keep being out of town during Conpulsion, but I'll show up this time!

Do you know about Phil Masters' page of upcoming conventions?
http://www.philm.demon.co.uk/RPGs/conventions.htm

Lots of links there, including one to a site for Games Expo:
http://www.ukgamesexpo.co.uk/

Battlemasters is close to me, being in Leicester, but I tend not to go as they're rather poor about providing advance info about what there is to see and do. A friend goes and sems to enjoy it.
