June is the Gateway to Summer!
And around here that means convention season kicking into high gear. Just in the month of June 2017 we will be at both ConCarolinas in Charlotte, NC (June 2–4) and Origins Game Fair in Columbus, OH (June 14–18).
ConCarolinas June 2–4, 2017
We’re particularly thrilled to be returning to ConCarolinas as we (Jodi and Clint) are attending as the Gaming Guests of Honor. That’s primarily for our work with Pinnacle Entertainment as publishers of Savage Worlds, but we definitely will also have a space in the exhibit hall as Carolina Game Tables. Still, for the roleplayers and future game designers, we have some great panels and of course, we’ll be hosting a Savage Saturday Night (a variety of Savage Worlds games in the 8-12pm slot that evening).
Origins June 14–18, 2017
Now, that’s not to say we aren’t excited about Origins! It’s 5 days of gaming. Five. Days. I took a quick glance at the schedule and there are over 6000 events on it. It’s amazing. For gamers who have never gone, I highly recommend trying it at least once.
If You Want a Game Table for Christmas—What, Christmas?!
If you’ve been waiting for a chance to see our game tables in person, both of those cons will be an excellent opportunity. They’re also a couple of the last chances (barring a visit to our office in North Carolina) before we hit our holiday deadline for ordering.
That’s right, the holidays. Thanksgiving. Christmas. New Year’s Eve. Party Central! If you know you want to have a table delivered in time for the holidays, June and July are the best time to place your order! Our average production time is holding steady at 16 weeks, but it’s the busiest manufacturing time—and delivery time—of the year. If you live in one of the farthest states from us (Washington State, we’re looking at you–White Glove Delivery time can be 4 weeks) the timing is especially tricky. To be safe, order before the end of the July (or better yet, June, so you can have it for Thanksgiving, too!).
That’s it for now. We’ve got conventions to prepare for!
