I hope everyone enjoyed the beautiful Labor Day weekend! Luis and I did not make it to the beach or to a BBQ… but we did get a kitten!
BEHIND THE SCENES
This past week I have been vacationing in the Underdark getting plenty of inspiration for D&D Rage of Demons. Deep underground in the catacombs (literally what my landlord now calls part of our basement), I have been preparing for multiple crews, who will begin maintenance work this week, to rid the building of some major nastiness.
Today was full of inspections. Our landlord approved the quotes for three separate stages of work that will need to be done. Stage 1 begins tomorrow, Stage 2 the following Monday.
While the maintenance crews take over the basement for the next 2 weeks - Luis and I will continue to build the operational workflow, design and test our digital systems, and plan the physical layout of our new space. Once we are able to set back up, we want to be able to hit the ground running.
I am glad so many of you are as excited about the new event space as we are. The event ideas coming in so far are amazing and I can’t wait to start scheduling.
Mini Painting Contests, Chess Classes, Magic Tricks: Sleight of Hand Techniques, Art Shows, Theater Performances, DM-ing Secrets and Skills, all kinds of Star Wars events leading up to the movie release, MTG Moms, and much more.

Terror in Meeple City
Rampage with a new name!
You are a monster and you need to ACTUALLY destroy Meeple City. Tiles form floors, which are supported by meeple pillars. You can pick one of 4 actions: Move, Demolish (drop your monster on a building), Toss a vehicle (flick a car from your monster to another monster or a building), and Breathe (physically blow the city down). Different colored meeples knocked off the board award different points and each monster has a superpower. Sweet!
