If Brants arms are inmobile, can he still talk?

Hope you're all enjoying yourselves this weekend!

Heading that way in a bit.  Hope to be there in time for OTS's Southern Front discussion.  Is that at the ACD booth, or another room

Here's my Origins 2019 haul. Spent a lot less than I did last couple of years, not sure if that's good or bad.
The copy of Across 5 Aprils was unpunched and in great shape (thanks Enterprise Games!!!).

1 game/kid (Squirrel or Die for son, King of Tokyo for daughter)
I got Ft Sumter
-- a handful of dice (to support our buddy Craig Zipse)
-- an etched pint glass for my wife (plus my usual one from Barleys, but it's pretty lame this year)
-- official Origins t-shirt for my daughter (if you see them, you'll understand why, for her)
-- handmade bolt action pen for me
the usual freebies - commemorative die, too many CSI tote bags, Game Trade magazine - but not all the D&D stuff they usually give out (dunno if they weren't there or if it was just bc K wasn't there much to go get them)

Mike, hows that Phobos Rising game? I'm always on the lookout for a new nifty solitaire game to buy and not play.

and coaster from Stagger  :waiting: can’t wait to meet him.....

So far, Phobos Rising is an outstanding game to buy and not play!

Weird- looks like there are some placeholder images on the counter that were never replaced at print time:



Unless Decision Games got permission from both Gerry Anderson and Stanley Kubrick to use the Eagle transporter and Martian shuttle images. Some of the others look vaguely familiar as well...

Mike, do your counter sheets have them too?
