I think that they will limit how many one person can buy, based on what happened last year, but who knows!

Anyone planning to be all noble and get these for us?  Last year I think it was Blackmoor.

I want it!

I would think this year that they would just be more prepared with enough copies.

What do you think Goodman would say if we asked them to print an extra portion of their run just for Acaeum members?

Wouldn't they like a two to three dozen extra sale?

Or, is it being at the convention that is the value?

If they have one..limit 2 per person..but will have them available from their online store after GenCon...would be plenty of copies printed.

Summed it up.

Finally got my badge and tickets yesterday....now I am starting to get anxious.  It is going to be about a 13 - 15 hour drive from Dallas to Indy (13 hours if Mike stays away from mexican food the day we leave, 15 hours otherwise  :twisted: ).   We should get there Wednesday just in time for check-in to the Courtyard Marriott (around 3 p.m.).

Anyone still planning on an Acaeum get-together one evening for dinner, drinks, etc?

Does anyone normally plan a get-together in their room to hang out and talk, drink, play a quick game of cards or Risk, etc.  Wednesday night maybe?  If not Mike and I may try to organize something since he is planning on bringing some booze and a few games.

A few games, and a lot of booze..... :twisted:

And I resent the Mexican food crack....who is the one who wants to stop off in St. Louis for that world famous 3 foot tall apple pie?  Then again, maybe the sugar rush after you consume that monstrosity will get you fueled for the home stretch to Indy....

If enough people want, we can plan an Acaeum member gaming session, or a more laid back bull session any night that week. Or we can all plan a night to meet out for drinks/food. Post here if you are interested.  I know Blackmoor is busy Wed night from what I remember.
