TOPIC: Well...here we go!

Well...here we go! 1 year 4 months ago #1

The Sunday that TD tickets go on sale for Gen Con is always the most "craziest" day of the year for the folks at TD HQ. Every year we wait with fidgety hands for tickets to go on sale to see if we still have gamers who want to play our game. And, of course, this year we are a wee bit more nervous about ticket demand due to the "enhancement" of our adventures this year.. We raised the ticket price to where it needed to be, and we changed the event structure so there are no more combat and puzzle versions. I am hoping...really hoping...that folks will give us the benefit of the doubt, try it for one year, and continue to game with us.

I am hoping for at least 80% of the tickets to be sold within 24 hours. That gives us 10% more to sell leading up to Gen Con, and another 10% to sell at Gen Con. This way as many folks to want to try/play TD will get a chance to do so, and we will get the funding we were hoping to receive.

Thank you all for your support and passion for this wonderful group project called True Dungeon. After 16 years, it still kind of feels like I am 15 years old and I am putting on a haunted house in my neighbor's basement with the help of the neighborhood kids. It is all just crazy energy focused on making people happy while winging the whole thing on what feels right in my gut.

Keep your fingers crossed, and let's hope my gut is right about the 80%! :unsure:

Good luck today.

I think it will be fine. I know some folks are cutting back a bit, but I also think it will be healthy to have some tickets still available after the mad scramble.

I hope Jeff is right as it will be easier to fill up my schedule, but I'm afraid Lazlo's statement is more accurate.

I also know some people who have cut back, but it just seems like a lot of the early price increase complaints have been replaced by a lot of anticipation and excitement over the changes. But that could also be because I frequent pro-TD forums. I guess we'll find out shortly.

I may be doing as few as 2 GenCon runs. But I'll be doing more at GHC. I suspect the tickets I don't take at GenCon will still be sold and the tickets I take at GHC would not have been sold.

If so, its a net positive for TD.

I wouldn't be surprised if that number was 12 hours rather than 24. I honestly don't think people will be running from the price increase.

Well we know at least some have ran away from the price increase. It is just a question of how many and if there are more folks to take their place.

Of hotel registration and event day i detest event registration worse. I can figure around missing on the hotel housing block, may not get my choice but i can find a place for con.

Even registration day is all or nothing, if i whiff then con is a bust for me. With the price increase i'm cutting back on pug runs overall but focusing on buying full runs for my group. So hoping it gets easier overall.

Really don't think you have anything to worry about Jeff.
We're all the kind of people who enjoy the game on a "meta" level. We like talking about the game year-round. We buy tokens. We enjoy crafting. We get together during the off-season if we can. We are a very skewed demographic that way. -Raven

I'm kinda the opposite, Matt. Hotel Reg day* makes a huge difference to me & my crew - for some of them, it's the difference between making it to GenCon or not (ie, if we can't get a hotel in-block, then they can't afford to come)
With Event Reg, even if I can't get the TD events I'm aiming for, I know many good TD'ers will be looking for people to round out their groups, and I'm certain I will get some runs into my schedule, one way or the other!

*Hotel Reg has actually been a lot better for me the last 3 years. VIG-dom has its perks!
