The audience is very different - a great idea for TD to pursue - essentially, a large audience of new potential players. The question is how much crossover will their be between digital gaming (and competitive digital gaming) and the TD audience.

It makes a lot of sense to try it.

I would also recommend testing DragonCon for a year (yes, it would mean skipping a year of Pax West). DragonCon has a bit more cross-over with less digital gaming and more cos-play and role-play but still different enough from GenCon to be at least half of the attendees not doing GenCon or Origins. With 85K attendees, it would represent a great new venue but it isn't cheap to do. Similarly, SDCC or NYCC would be 150K attendees but might be price prohibitive to set up something of TD's size.

Oversees would be interesting but the logistics would be a nightmare. Most likely unrealistic to see TD shipping everything over for Essen/Speil (even for the 170K attendees). What would make more sense there would be finding a European partner and licensing the TD intellectual property to do a clone version of it there.

It's great to see the game getting exposed to even larger audiences! Great work guys!

Bei Spieltag und Essen müssen Sie Deutsch sprechen.

Anyone up for translating Tokendb into German?. (Certainly someone whose German is better than mine.)


I could do it.

Do the physics.

Although difficult not impossible. Different dungeons could go to different cons. We just clone Mike. In fact, for this type of situation, different years dungeons and tracks could be scheduled.


I think there's probably a dozen key roles you'd need to have very very solid for that to work (give or take a few people). But yeah, seems like it could work.

Besides those roles, there's also several things like the props department that you'd need to duplicate equipment on, or give more planning to. Things like which pipe carts go where, how to split up the curtain crate, etc. Make sure the ladders, coaches chairs, etc. don't accidentally all get sent to one con, and so on...


The “Clone Mike” thing didn’t clue you in that I was attempting to be cheeky?
Where there’s a will there’s a way but yes it would take a lot of work, coordinating, purchasing duplicates of certain things, etc.
If it were the situation that more cons were closer together time wise and TD determines the demand for play is there, it could at some point become worthwhile.

Yes, I'm very happy. Hopefully there will soon be more than two TD players in Atlanta :)

Will TD be at DragonCon next year? I think the chances are really high.


Yes, I was hoping to get that set up, but no it didn't work out. Dragoncon doesn't have much space as it is in hotels rather than the convention center.

Unfortunately I believe PAX West is typically on labor day weekend like DragonCon is, so if they keep going to PAX West I think Dragoncon will be out.

Have you looked it up in the TDb ?
Please post TDb corrections/suggestions in this thread .
If I write something in teal, it should not be taken seriously.

Pretty soon all vacation travels will be TD events across the country.

Ich kann ein bisschen Deutsch, aber es ist sehr schlecht. 日本語のほうがペラペラで話せる。日本でイベントをするつもりがあったら、ぜひ協力させていただきたいです。

Didn't know you spoke some other languages Bob! TD in other countries would be amazing, but like others have stated I'm sure the cost of sending things would make it impossible. Licensing is a very interesting idea...

I suspect the point at which you start translating TokenDB into other languages, there has to be some serious thought given to actually making it an actual database ;)

Am I the only person whose brain keeps trying to read the title of this thread as Admiral Kirk rather than Atlanta! Kirk?
