Evergreen Tabletop Expo

Hello Cherry Picked Fans,

May 27th to 29th is Evergreen Tabletop Expo: a tabletop gaming convention located in the intact city of Tacoma. We will be there the whole time to share our games and bask in the meeples. There’s a bunch of cool stuff happening, but for obvious reasons, we’ll just share what we’re up to.

For the con’s prime time, we’ll be sharing a booth with some friends. The Washington Game Co-op combines the powers of four studios into one Voltron-like gaming powerhouse (we’re the head, in case you’re wondering). Stop by to play games of Mysteries of the Yokai by Warding Circle, Triangul8 by Hutt Family Games, and Bring Your Own Book by Do Better Games. CPG will be doing demos of Catalyst and our next potential title, Conspire.

We will also (Poseidon willing) have the first real version of Drink!! Once we figure out the coolest (and probably closest) bar in Tacoma, we’ll setup an after party there to show off our sweet drinking game. Play with us and you’ll be entered to win a copy.

We are also doing longer sessions of Catalyst throughout the con. Sign up through the ETX website to reserve a seat. If past conventions indicate anything, our talented game masters will make you laugh louder than anyone else in the hotel.

Come down to Tacoma at the end of the month. Play some amazing games with wonderful humans. Regret nothing.

Cherry Blossom Season

Hi Cherry Picked Fans,

It's beautiful up here in Cascadia. The cherry trees are in bloom, tulips line the sidewalks, and it's finally warm enough to not constantly run space heaters. We just wrapped up our Emerald City Comicon experience and are looking forward to the next con.

CPG will be at Evergreen Tabletop Expo from May 27th to 29th. We are sharing a booth with other local game designers (including our friends at Warding Circle) all weekend. Our plan is to run short Catalyst demos at the booth, launch into full sessions throughout the con, and Drink! in the bar afterwards. We might have a prototype for our next secret project too.

We will be swinging through Moscow, Idaho this weekend. Stop by Safari Pearl Saturday from 2-6 to play Catalyst with us or Friday night for some Drinks. We are trying to expand our reach outside of Washington, so if your city is still infested with demons, let us know what game stores could host the human resistance. A summer demo-tour would be awesome.

Huge thanks to HyperRPG for having a us on Grab Bag last Thursday to flex our design muscles. If you haven't already, go check out their Twitch stream for a variety of gaming shows.

Alright, time to get back to work. You all expect great things of Drink! and our release date is fast approaching. Cheers!
