July 2014 Update

and Design Day Announcement
Hello! I have three big announcements today, so I'll get right to them.

1st Annual Stonemaier Games Design Day

On November 15 in St. Louis, we're going to host our first annual design day. Our hope is to bring together current and future game designers (as well as playtesters) to playtest game prototypes with designers, playtesters, and local publishers, gain exposure to the Top 10 Games Every Designer Should Play at Least Once (list in progress by the League of Gamemakers), and get feedback on your Kickstarter project page preview.

We're really excited about this event. It's a first for us, so there are sure to be some growing pains, but we're going to try to alleviate them by making this a free event--we'll provide food, beverages, and the location at no cost to you. We'll also provide some special participation prizes for those who give as much feedback as they receive over the course of the day.

If you would like to sign up for the 1st annual Stonemaier Games Design Day, please fill out this form. Spots are limited, and all sign ups must be made in advance.

Gen Con

I (Jamey) will be at Gen Con with a number of Stonemaier ambassadors. I'll spend pretty much the entire 4 days stationed at our tables in demo room 137 (across from the exhibition hall). Feel free to stop by between 9:00 and 6:00 to say hi, learn how to play our games, show us your prototype, or play/talk about pretty much any game. We're there purely to hang out with you.

You can also find me at the following events:
  • Friday (10:00 am): Gaming for Good panel at the Crowne Plaza, Pennsylvania Station C
  • Friday (5:00 pm): Kickstarter panel at the Westin, Chamber room
  • Saturday (9:00 pm): Secret Cabal happy hour at the Omni Hotel bar
Viticulture Update

You may have seen on the recent project update that the advance copies of Viticulture have arrived. That means that Viticulture is on track for September to Tuscany backers who ordered Viticulture for delivery by itself and those who pre-ordered Viticulture through our website. Viticulture will enter traditional distribution channels in October.

Top 3 Most-Read New Blog Entries for July: What We've Been Playing: Telestrations, One-Night Ultimate Werewolf, Belfort, Lewis & Clark.

If you'd like to discuss the contents of this e-mail or if I need to add/change something without resending the newsletter to everyone (i.e., confusing phrasing or a broken link), please check out this page on our website.

Thanks, and have a great weekend!
