The Gygax Magazine Unboxing Event
Truth in posting - I am currently boxed. I went to the German pub across from the Brooklyn Stat after getting my copies of Gygax Magazine. No one from the event was there when i got there. I had a liter of Haufbrau before heading home. Once I got home, my wife plied me with Newcastle on tap - I feel wicked fine right now ;)
I finally got to meet +Joseph Bloch face to face. Not as much time as I would have liked, but the Brooklyn Star was bursting from it's seams today. I got to meet a few folks that I haven't seen in ages, never got to meet +Christopher Mennell or +Dennis Higgins , which I really would have like to. I saw +Tavis Allison from afar. Maybe they can join +Joe D and myself at the next PubCon.
It really was a madhouse at the Brooklyn Strat. I literally ran out the door after grabbing my copies of Gygax Magazine.
Best unanswered question of the day was from +Joseph Bloch - paraphrasing - "Do you expect any issue from using the Dragon Magazine trade dress?" There were answers, but they really didn't answer the question. Gygax magazine looks and feels like The Dragon. How do I know? The moment I showed it to my wife she said "Didn't I pack up like 100 issues of that for storage like a year ago?" No, she's not a gamer.
Gygax Magazine is $8.95 an issue for the print version. It's probably going to be $4.95 for the PDF / iPad version when it releases in about 2 weeks in electronic format.
Now I need to actually read it.
A review should be forthcoming.
