This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

GenCon 2022 topic
« on: August 04, 2022, 02:31:45 PM »
I thought I’d start a topic on what people are seeing at GenCon, thinking I might not be the only member here. I just went by the booth for Coyote and Crow. Absolutely no product at the booth or promotional material. All the creator (who looks about as 1/64 American Indian as I do, so looks white as any other white person) had in the booth were buttons that said “Pro-Choice or No Dice”, and he was holding court with about 4 fans. So no product. No gaming material. Only politics to be found at the booth.

Take a picture so we can spread it around for truth purposes.

I’d need to figure out how to strip the image of the metadata.

This is the biggest pandering gimmick of a game in RPG history.

By next year, you're likely to be asked to hold a lot of beers.

I saw them inflating it yesterday on the east side of the convention center towards the food truck area.

Given that he blew at least 20 grand on the booth space alone with no product to sell I doubt that highly. Not with that kind of business savvy. That kind of performance also scares away potential business partners if he was looking for any.

This guy will be sucking up to all the big gaming publishers with a chest full of “Pro choice or no dice” buttons, and they will all smile to his face and never call him.

Coyote & Crow themselves announced a few days ago that they would be unable to sell product at Gen Con this year:

Congratulations, detective!

One of the GMs in our group bought the game thinking it was a great idea.  It only took a read of the first few pages for us to determine what a load of crap it was, so we bailed on it.  I'm sure the mope at the booth was enjoying preaching to the choir.  Not sure on their sales, but I'll bet they aren't great.

Your links says no booth. OP said booth. Further detecting is required.
Hit me up if you're in the Toronto area and you wanna play Hyperborea 3E!

He definitely has a booth at GenCon, and definitely blew $20k plus on a fiasco. I think he only stayed at his booth for an hour before he bailed. Can’t say that I blame him for hiding his face.

As for investigating, I never claimed I found out a deep secret. It can’t be secret with the company’s name on the booth. I am pointing out this Woke jerk’s failure, and whatever sob story he puts on his website for an assumed friendly audience he still failed to deliver on his plans on being at GenCon with product to sell and promote his game. The excuses are just that, and don’t contradict his failure. It’s also telling that instead of even coming up with some posters or flyers to help promote the game all he could do was make up some buttons to virtue-signal, as if that would cover his failure as a game developer and producer.
