Golem Arcana
« on: Aug 20, 2014 04:23PM »

I'm a local gamer and HBS volunteer promoting the new Golem Arcana miniature table top strategy game that was just released at GenCon. I've talked to Jarod about posting here, so hopefully I've managed to stay within the rules and intentions of this forum!  :cool:

I'm planning on a series of "come try out the game" demo events Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5pm to closing for the next 2-3 weeks (keep an eye on the events list at TBS!) and would like to find more players to explore this awesome game with.  I'm open to demo'ing on other days and times, if requested.  Eventually I hope we'll be a group of people that come together regularly to play, and as an official "Emissary" I will also help run tournaments when that time comes.

I have a hard time "doing brief", but let me try to get you excited in a brief manner anyway:
"Jordan Weisman, the mind behind Golem, at Gen Con. Weisman is a serial entrepreneur of game companies and games - he was behind Shadowrun, BattleTech, MechWarrior, and Crimson Skies"...

"Digitally enhanced" with a companion app that allows all players to go into a scenario "blind", where random encounters and effects can be discovered as you move your miniatures around the map.

"Living Fiction" the outcome of all the games played is shared with the developers via the app, allowing for the story of the world of Eretsu to be written by all of us players! -missions and scenarios are created and become available based on our previous war efforts (games).

..so much more..

Glad to see a Golem Arcana presence in the area! I plan on stopping by tonight to check out the store and demo event. :) I don't see it on the events page, but it's on the Golem Arcana page (and the guys confirmed it's still going on via email), so looking forward to meeting the local GA community.

I am a KS-backer of the game, and will probably tote along my boards and a couple 500 pt-armies (maybe my Colossus as well). My 7-year-old daughter is also coming along and she pilots a mean golem herself (has a tendency to roll 1-hit kill crits).

Thanks for coming and for bringing the Colossus, pictures do it no justice, it is awesome, huge and beautiful!
(see attached image)

I'm not sure why its not showing up at the Event Page of TBS, sometimes it seems like it matters how you get to the page, but I just checked and none of the events show here anymore, must have dropped somehow.

The http://golemarcana.com/events/?action=tribe_list&tribe_paged=1&tribe-bar-geoloc-lat=41.5460323&tribe-bar-geoloc-lng=-72.6505957&tribe-bar-geoloc=06457 will show events in the area too.

Currently I only have this Thursday scheduled, next couple of weeks I will be busy and not run any scheduled events.

We're coming out of a period of rather intense (on my part) demo-presence at the store, and I want to thank Jared and The Battle Standard for being such great hosts!

While I don't have much scheduled (yet!) at the store, I am by no means going away.  Rather, I'm taking a short break from running pure demo's to get some games in myself! :)  I'm also getting family visiting from Norway, and while a stop at the store is planned since my brother and his girl are both gamers (wh40k etc.), I'm not going to make that an event for obvious reasons.

So, with that said, I'm working on plans and schedules for October and onwards, so keep your eyes on the board and the events postings here at TBS and on www.golemarcana.com, and if you are at TBS this coming Tuesday, 9/9, unless something unexpected comes up, you will get to witness a 1000 pt vs 1000 pt Golem Arcana game featuring the HUGE Durani Colossus unit.  (time permitting, there may be a chance to try out a demo game after the battle!)

Lastly, if you have not already seen it, check out the 1:57 youtube clip featuring a brief animated introduction of the world of Eretsu and a speed intro to how the game and app works, all in less time than it took you to read this post. maybe. if you read slow.
