Crafty Games at Gen Con 2012: Come Play with Brandon Sanderson

Recommended Posts


The Gen Con 2012 event catalog has been released and we're just two weeks from registration going live, so it's time to consider how you'll be spending the Best Four Days in Gaming! (To view the listings, you will need to log into your Gen Con account and click the "Find Events" link in the left naivgation panel. From there, you can browse events by type, day, grouup, and more. If you'd prefer a spreadsheet version, you can download it here.)

Crafty Games has events running all weekend for Fantasy Craft and the Mistborn Adventure Game, but the big news is our special celebrity session with Mistborn creator Brandon Sanderson. That's right, six lucky winners will have the chance to play a full five-hour session of the Mistborn Adventure Game with the novel author himself!

This event happens Sunday from 11am to 4pm and seats will be raffled off throughout the weekend at the Crafty Games booth in the dealer's hall (like last year, we're in the Studio 2 block this time around - watch our site for the exact booth number as we close on the weekend). Every purchase at the Crafty Games booth will earn you one or more raffle tickets, so be sure to keep us on your shopping lists.

Brandon will also be signing at our booth Saturday from 4:30pm to 6pm, which is a great time to stop by and pick up your very own copy of the Mistborn Adventure Game and get it signed by the man himself.  Brandon is Gen Con's Author Guest of Honor this year and will also be doing special readings and panels all weekend.

Don't forget to watch us on Facebook, Twitter, and the Crafty Games news feed for more details about this amazing weekend.

We look forward to seeing you at the show! Stay Crafty!

Just an add-on and a bump, I'll be there too! Rare chance to get both of us on books like The Way of Kings, The Mistborn Adventure Game and The Alloy of Law. Collect an Isaac Stewart and you get the whole set!!

(seriously, rare. We've only been all together at once a single time, and I've only signed with Brandon twice! EVER!)

I was able to get the dice, and a Sanderson-autograph for my wife, but the art book was there and somehow not "available"...it was confusing.

That is confusing, as we had the book in stock and within arm's reach all weekend. Do you remember with whom you spoke?

We brought a handful of those home with us and unless they sell out at PacifiCon this weekend we'll be putting them up on our site sometime soon.

Not available! Well, that was a mistake on someone's part. I'm very sorry that happened.

As mentioned, Crafty has the majority of the remaining stock. Personally, I have four copies left for sale (free sketch!). Send me a PM, or keep an eye out on the Crafty site.

I'm not sure of the name, it was right after the signing started, though, so it was kind of hectic. I was early-ish in the line. (First...25? Maybe?)

Well, very sorry that happened. It looks like we'll be putting a smallish quantity up for sale through our site, though I'm not sure exactly when yet. Sometime in the next month or two, most likely. Keep an eye on the site and feeds for details.
