Dragonmeet 2014 – That’s a wrap

This year I had an excellent day at Dragonmeet, I got to catch up with some old friends, meet some new ones and did a little shopping.

I did wonder if the change of venue may have caused the number of people attending to drop but I was surprised at how bust the ILEC convention centre was. It was certainly much easier for me to get to than the old venue and my vegan friends were happy with the close proximity of 222 Veggie Vegan to the venue.

I got to talk to Matt Machell author of the ’60s themed RPG The Agency, plus David F Chapman of the #rpgaday challenge, BITS where in attendance and I had a good talk to them as well as Arion Games and their new Kickstarter Sorcerers of Ur-Turuk.

I only got to attend a couple of panels as I overslept so I missed out on the ones I wanted to attend.  I had to attend the Jamie Anderson panel where he talked about growing up with Thuderbirds and he played a preview of the new Terrahawks Big Finish Audio production for us.

I stayed on for the charity auction which was hosted by the inimitable Brian Nisbet and he did a good job of running things; even if he did relinquish the hosting at one point so James Wallis could sell his t-shirt.  I got a package of Savage Worlds books and won a set at the gaming table to playtest the new Thunderbirds board game with Jamie Anderson.

I can’t say much about the board game except that it was a lot of fun, tense, full of action and has all the favourite characters from the TV series as characters.  I can’t wait to see this game in the shops and I shall certainly by purchasing it when it comes out.

About the Author

I've been gaming on and off since about 1989 and during that period have played with numerous game systems. I'm fluent in a few, have a basic understanding of quite a few more and can get by in others. Somewhere along the way I found time to be a playtester, contribute to an unpublished game supplement and be associated with another gaming magazine written by far more talented people than I. This lead to one infamous article being written in which I followed the letter of the adventure and torched the parties river barge. I'm also listed on as a game designer.
