Thank you Winter Weirdness 2016!

Yesterday we attended an annual local gaming event called Winter Weirdness. It was such a great time and we met so many great players. Since Sydney was with me we stayed with games that she was interested in playing. In the morning we met a family with a 4 year old daughter and we got to play quite a few games with them. They had quite a few games with them geared towards younger players which was very nice.
We started out the morning playing a dexterity game Rhino Hero. Rhino Hero is basically reverse Jenga. You build a card tower and you have this little maple Rhino that you sometimes have to move to different floors of the building as you are building the tower. Great game if you have young players at home. Each round takes only a few minutes to play.
The next game we played with them was Sushi Go! one of our favorites. We got to play Sushi Go! with a gentleman name Brett and it was his first time playing. He seemed to really enjoy it and even thought he's buy it for his nieces.
The next game we played was Catan Junior. It had been a while since I played Catan but after a few minutes it was just like reading a bike and it all came back. This was Sydney's first time playing any version of Catan and she caught on to it very quickly and then proceed to dominate us all with some of her turns lasting 5 minutes or more.
Then the final game of the morning was Colt Express a wild west, train robbing game. It was a huge hit and one I think we'll have to pick up. Sydney loved the little train and the gameplay is very thematic, If you have kids I'd say this is one to have in your gaming library because after a few plays I could see this game being very quick and without a doubt very much a shoot out on a train in the wild west.
After Colt Express we had to leave for a birthday party but Sydney asked if we could go back after the party which I happily took her up on. We had met a gentleman named Kori earlier that morning who does events for Plaid Hat and Iello and we asked him if we could run-through Mice and Mystics with him. He happily did a session of Mice and Mystics with us which we unfortunately were captured in by being overrun by cockroaches. Kori then followed up the Mice and Mystic session with a demo of Ashes. It was a close match, but unfortunately I had damage redirected to my Phoenixborn when I tried to take his Phoenixborn out at the end and took the loss.
It was just a great time and we want to thank Green Mountain Gamers for hosting such a great event. We hope to attend next year and make it to other events!

FLGS? Not really but I have a FGS - BRAP'S MAGIC!

Having an online presence I sometimes get asked about my FLGS (friendly local gaming store). I usually reply that I don't have a FLGS but that I do have a FGS - Brap's Magic in Burlington, VT ( Much to my disappointment (and maybe the relief of my wife), Brap's Magic is about an hour's drive from me, but let me tell you they are a GREAT store! I wish I lived closer and spend more time there, but the reality of life is that I just can't get up there as much as I wish I could. They have a great team working the store and let me tell you about them.
Brap, the owner, is just about the nicest guy you could meet. He gets the whole retail aspect and he'll even sit down and play a game or two with you if he has a chance (which is pretty rare since he's a busy guy).
Steve, the event coordinator, does a great job as well being just a funny guy. He schedules everything from RPG sessions to Magic, Dice Masters and Attack Wing events. He keeps the events well run while also tending to other areas of the store. Again, he'll also sit and play just about anything with you if he has a moment.
That leaves me with Dave. Dave is the "go to" guy. He mans the store certain days and does a great job keeping the store clean, tidy and stocked. Dave is also one of the players to beat in Dice Masters events. We pick on him a little, but he takes it in stride. Nice guy, really good Dice Masters player.
Those three are the team that I know that do a great job there at Brap's Magic. There must be more but those are the 3 that I interact with the most along with the "regulars" who are usually there playing various games and are just a great group of guys.
If you are in the Burlington, VT area I'd encourage you to check them out. I'm sure you will enjoy your time there. You can also check Brap's Magic out online at They have competitive prices and great service.
Now you know and knowing is half the battle!

We won a Twitter contest from the folks at Battle Bin!

Our 2015 in data and our plans for 2016

The final numbers for 2015 are in. I'd like to share some of the data with you because the numbers are outstanding and I can't express how grateful I am to everyone who watched, viewed and subscribed to any of these channels.
First the Livestream data because that's what we started with in Feb 2015 because all we were working with was mobile devices (Boy, have things changed since then. I can't wait to see what improvements we make in 2016). Livestream we have 51 followers. That's all the data they provide. I know most of our monthly streams had 100s of views before they were taken off the site after 30 days. Incredible because we only used Livestream for a few months.
Twitch we ended 2015 with 68 followers and 599 unique views. Again, wow. We weren't using Twitch the "normal" way because the only way we could broadcast to Twitch was by a screen mirroring program off my Nexus tablet which wasn't ideal but we wanted to provide Golem Arcana content to more people.
Now the Youtube data. Are you ready for this? Just to show how far we've come, remember we started our Youtube channel March 22, shooting videos with my iPhone. We weren't streaming on Youtube. We ended 2015 with 153 Youtube subscribers, 7,632 views and 38,087 minutes watched. I know those numbers are just a drop in the bucket to a lot of Youtube channels, but for me that's just incredible because I started out doing this without any clue what I was doing, so to think people watched our channels for over 7,000 hours (more if we could factor in the time from Twitch and Livestream) in 2015 just boggles my mind.
So what does this mean for 2016? Well, we're still going to provide online content for Golem Arcana. Love the game. Love the tech. Love the company - great people.
We're going to finish Page Flippers season 1 featuring DestinyQuest "The Legion of Shadow". I'm planning a big season finale for Page Flippers. It should be a great event. Michael J. Ward is a terrific person and an incredible writer so we want to continue to support his work as much as possible.
We've got a lot of tabletop and board game streaming planned. Some of the games are out, some of them are not! :) We're really excited to do more game play streaming and show you all some games that we're really excited about in 2016.
We were invited back to all the conventions we set up at in 2015. We'll be returning to those conventions as well as possibly adding 1-2 more.
We also have something up our sleeve for Youtube that we're REALLY excited about. We can't disclose it just yet, but know that it involves a company that provides a great product with great value and service. We can't wait to help get the word out about it. Stay tuned for that announcement in the coming weeks.
If you've read this post all the way to this point, again thank you so much for making our 2015 such an incredible year. We really couldn't have done it without you. We can't wait to do even more in 2016! -Doug
