To be honest. We were going, but aren't now.
I want my game conventions to be about gaming, not ideological agendas.

What are you talking about? Since when is a game company promoting a game at a game convention, to old fans and interested new comers, an "ideological agenda?"

I would love to go, but it is across the continent from me. So sadly, no.

Nope. We are not having that argument here. Google is your friend and "Origins guest controversy" will get you started.

I was going originally (would have been my first Origins and it's practically down the street from me) but cancelled my ticket based on the controversy that Andrew mentioned.

That said, I appreciate Steve and Andrew and all at Steve Jackson Games keeping their games about games and fun and not injecting politics and culture into them.

I'm sure we all have our opinions on what's going on in the world and country but it's nice to have an escape to enjoy without having to see and hear snattering back and forth.

Thanks!

Scott

P.S. Looking forward to seeing more on the Car Wars 6e (I know - another thread) and The Fantasy Trip fronts :-)

We will not have Car Wars 6e at Origins. Sorry, but we're not yet ready to put the game in front of a larger audience.

Once again, politics are OFF TOPIC here. Even when phrased as compliments. Expect infractions if the digression continues. Keep the conversation focused on TFT and you'll be fine.
