EpicTable will be at Gen Con again this year, and I’m trying something new. I’m going to be conducting a seminar: “Using EpicTable to Keep Your Gaming Group Together Online or Enhance Your Face-to-Face Games”. I’m considering attending a seminar on concise naming of seminars. If you’re going to be at Gen Con, here are some excellent reasons to check it out:
- I’m afraid that if I’m conducting a seminar to an empty room, I might appear crazy.
- It’s free, and it’s not a sales pitch. I’m going to be talking about how to use EpicTable and the rest of the online gaming ecosystem to play online. I plan to cover basic things like VOIP vs. text chat and how I organize my handouts, tokens, and other resources, how I chunk up maps, how I use multiple displays for player vs. GM views, etc.
- I’ll tailor the seminar to the people in the room. You have the opportunity to ask questions, and I’ll demonstrate things live.
- Someone is going to win one of these spiffy new EpicTable t-shirts.
Whether or not you can attend, please let me know what topics you’d like me to cover and offer your own tips for working with EpicTable, or for gaming online in general. As the developer of EpicTable, I’m sure I’m blind to all kinds of cool stuff you guys do that I’ve never thought of. Post your ideas in the EpicTable forum on Facebook or G+.
The seminar is SEM1460143. It’s on Saturday, August 16th, from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm, and it’s in the “Chamber” room of the Westin hotel, which is next door to the convention center. I hope to see you there.

It’s been awhile since we’ve had t-shirts at Gen Con. When EpicTable was just in beta and we were doing pre-sales of 1.0, we threw in a t-shirt to give people something tangible for taking a risk on EpicTable. It also just adds to the carnival atmosphere when there are extras like t-shirts. So, this year, new shirts–for sales of 1.3…or 2.0…or just because I want a cool shirt. The art comes from the fantastic Adam Vehige, who incidentally, did the original EpicTable dragon logo, way back in 2006.
These are just mockups and still under development, but I already want one.
