Back from Gen Con

I'm back from the Gen Con board game convention held in Indianapolis. It was packed!

We ran 35 Apotheca events - quite a blur! It was great to meet backers as well as welcome new members into The Secret Potion Society. So many players said how much they loved the game, so we're really excited for you to play. Thank you to everyone that came out! 

We tested our newest version of the game and logged a bunch of good data. The adjusted basic powers such as Double Dive (the old Owl Swoop), Sorceress Spin, Faithful Float and Reptilian Rush went over well, as well as the limited edition Three Thieves. Most powers were interpreted correctly, but there were a consistent few that will need some wording/diagram adjustments.

We also met up with our contacts at manufacturer Whatz Games. It was nice to meet them in person and hash out some project details.

We'll be jumping back into internal testing this week with the special potions and variants. Below are lots of other pics!
