If you thought this was gonna be like some whack con then you don't understand the creativity behind DCG. This is the same crew that put together the early GOTJs. If you have ever participated in Morton's List events at the Gathering you know the level of excellence hat should be expected at this event. These guys know games and have many conventions under their belt. This event will have the magic of early GOTJs. This will grow. Don't miss this shit.

bomb.  dunno what boom might be about.  jenga bomb.  
also dunno if my title is host, or if i even have a title at all.  but im one of two people in the world who has all the rules memorized, so if anybody is gonna play at all, i should be there.  

Well my next question is what's Jenga Bomb? I can't find shit about it. 

im not surprised.  we never had a website or anything.  

in fact, the first material about the game published anywhere was probably the dcgcon pdf.  

Jenga Boom is Jenga with a timer basically. There's a "bomb" on the bottom that you stack the blocks on. The bomb blows up at "random" and whoever is taking their turn loses.  

fuck the boom.  i may have to sue somebody.  and lose.  still.  

 

it aint a game of jenga.  no stacking n whatnot.  only has jenga in the title cuz it requires jenga blocks.  

its an exercise in offense vs defense.  in this case, demolition vs engineering.  you and your opponent[s] build forts with your supply of blocks.  then, you bombard the enemy from a distance.  last fort standing wins.  

thats really all there is to it, the rest is parameter.  

remember othello commercials?  'a minute to learn, a lifetime to master' and such?  that tagline would apply here.  

 

its fun.  its easy.  its pretty quick.  it requires a tiny bit of thinkery, but not much.  

im tryin to come up with some kinda prizes or reward or sumn for the talented.  nothin too extravagant, but still worth gettin.  

  awfully paranoid, arent you?

This will grow. Don't miss this shit.   

i keep sayin, i wanna see the con again, even annually, if it can be done.  i feel like it can.

i am soooo hype for this! can't even explain. these releases lately, behind the paint usb, the road & into the echoside are right up my mf alley! and now a con to celebrate the jugga-nerdiness?!? *sploooosh* i wanted to host some d&d sessions as I have more than enough 4e shit to go around, or maybe some pokemon or xfiles tcg tournament plays but I didn't want to volunteer & then some kinda bone comes up & i end up not being able to go. so i didnt. but man, i haven't looked forward to an event so much in years! so excited ?

also, its dope that they'll be selling mortons list but any word on reprints of the pendulum comics? hopefully they'll have quest for shangrila for sale as well.

ps- if any of you ninjas play hearthstone, friend me: m0sh#11865

I wonder why they are going with 4e? Must be personal preference. I haven't played 5e yet, shit I still run 3.5 when I get a chance to play.

I honestly think DCG could market this OUTSIDE of juggalos and get a gigantic turnout. @chieflocc said something along the lines of "If they made an announcement encouraging cosplay this could blow up, people love dressing up" 

I know tons of people who travel for Cons, but especially around the area. I'm sure Detroit has a "Con" scene they could market to.

My least favorite part of a con is con goers. I want em to keep it to Juggalos. At least for the first one. I'm being selfish as fuck but whatever. Cosplay can be incredible but you ever been on a small ass elevator packed full of fake swords/dragon wings and latex masks that have been baskin in cheap chinese food flavored nerd sweat for two days, man? It's not fun and I don't want it at my con, dammit.

doubt there will be many gawkers or strays comin round.  not for an inaugural event.  

even if they did flood the place, it wouldnt affect much, in the end.  they could outnumber us juggalos three to one, there would still be absolutely no question of who runs shit.  

if they aint there to cause trouble, i say bring em on.  

 

far as cosplay, seems to me that there are surprisingly few real costumers among us.  i mean, there are plenty of em, just not as many as one might think.  

and generally not 'dressing up' or 'playin in costume', either.  closer to, 'wearing their uniform'.  

that said, im still a lil mystified that its not a point.  gatherings gots costumes contests, why not this?

1. Picked up Munchkin and plan to slowly pick up as many of the games listed as I can in preparation for this thing. @jc, I do believe we plan to visit before the con so prepare for a shitload of board/card/tabletop games to be brought with us. 

2. My ticket is still processing. Card hasn't been charged yet either. I can't help but wonder if they're charging by payment method first. Like, paypal transactions get charged first, then debt, then credit, etc. 

3. Has anyone else got a pass yet?

First of all, I am pretty sure most juggalos don't actually realize how fresh this is, the infomercial should have been for this. 

 

Secondly, I really want to go, but I have debt I gotta pay off and I'm not sure I can swing it. Which reminds me: Scruffy, I owe you money.

strongly agree with first point.     

for the second, i woulda thought there would be shit about it in there.  but i didnt watch it, so im just goin by what yall say.  which aint much.     

Secondly, I really want to go, but I have debt I gotta pay off and I'm not sure I can swing it. Which reminds me: Scruffy, I owe you money.   

money for what?  

what you 'owe', is a maildrop, mufucka.  

or hell, if you can somehow swing it, ill happily give it to ya at the con.  make a big ridiculous presentation out of it.  like an awards ceremony.  

  

i should just drive to your hood tomorrow.  try an wiggle outta that.

Personally... I am 85 grand in debt. I've never had a loan, never had a credit card. If you can step to that I would be impressed. I don't sweat my financial situation. Should anyone? Go play games, nigga.

It's not the debt itself so much as the situation. I am still paying off a car that is starting to shit out on me. I use my car for my job, and I commute an hour each way for school. If my car quits before I can pay it off I'm fucked.

We miss you guys too. I'll let you know soon if we're comin to visit. If we do, games and horror movies are a must.

You have bad porn tastes. Shit was like cinemax porn. Which is to say porn that's described as "erotica". Anyone that looks at that also probably calls women "hot babes". I don't even care that you posted porn. I just would have preferred it to be something better than that. Christ, man. Have some self respect.

Judgin by the fact that almost no one is interested in this thing, you're probably good for a bit. Still though, yeah, get it taken care of, man. Specifically the one that they were pushin on the site if it's wallet allotted.
