56 year old me is still trying to come up with the courage to go to the FLGS to try and meet new people to play with - otherwise this big box will end up in the basement right beside the "I want it all" box I have still not put into use.
Not to derail, but to chime in and encourage: Go for it! I run games in public and have for going on three years. Found a friendly bar wanting to get away from the sports theme and now the idea has grown organically and not only have other games cropped up, now I have been asked to run games in another place. And I am in Idaho. You can do it.

You veteran players are always welcome to use Decks of Destiny in online play-by-post games on the TFT Discord server. There are currently 2 campaigns running at the time and always room for more. (invitation link is in my signature file.)

If you want to encourage a group of new people at a meet-and-greet style gaming setting (like a store with tables or a bar that does board games), I highly recommend you use one of the more interesting looking roll out rubber battle mats (like, hexagonal arena or octopus lair), and draw people in for a scenario that really shows off the fun that comes from diverse, crazy encounters. I have never seen someone walk away without a smile from something involving a couple of crazily mixed-and-matched teams, like a fighter, a wizard and a giant vs. a pair of goblins, a 4 hex dragon and a big slime. Weird victory conditions are also another way to engage new players.

How did you get a tracking number to check with Fedex?

Search your emails for "Your order has been shipped!"

Doh! Yeah, when I din't have an e-mail yet I should have realized they just haven't gotten to me yet. OTH I live about an hour from Austin so mine will come pretty quick. It's kind of a race though because I leave for Germany in a week and will be over there for 3 months.

I got a notification of an email which had something about a shipping notice in the title.


Opened my inbox, opened the mail, expecting it to tell me that DOD was on the way and . . .



. . . it was from a guy with DHL Nigeria telling me a gift card for $5,000,000 had been held up in customs and could I please send a fee to hurry it a long.

Well hurry up and write back to him; a $5,000,000 gift card doesn't come along every day!

Oh no not the Orcish Prince! I keep sending him silver and he never seems to get freed from the catacombs

Got mine a couple of days ago. I've been running random melee combats for my own entertainment at home, but I'm trying to get a handle on the system overall so that I can run it at conventions (starting with Emerald City Comicon in a month or so).
