News and Events

Several of Larry Correia's fans have expressed concern over his size relative to the other celebrity redshirts currently offered by our Kickstarter campaign. WeaselPants Productions humbly acknowledges out mistake, and would like to issue this card as a correction. ks_pro_CA12 There.  That is much more realistic.

In a little under two weeks WeaselPants will be traveling to exotic Indianapolis.  We can't wait to bask in the warm glow of 40,000 nerds crammed into a building together. Come see the new and improved Redshirts. Come for the special six GenCon cards. Come for the two mystery cards. So secretive and mysterious that they won't even be available at our booth. Ooh! Spooky and mysterious.

We are currently resolving some issues which are causing a delay in the next print run of Redshirts.  We do not currently have any remaining stock. Stay tuned and hopefully we will be able to fix that soon.

Conventions & Appearances

In a little under two weeks WeaselPants will be traveling to exotic Indianapolis.  We can't wait to bask in the warm glow of 40,000 nerds crammed into a building together. Come see the new and improved Redshirts. Come for the special six GenCon cards. Come for the two mystery cards. So secretive and mysterious that they won't even be available at our booth. Ooh! Spooky and mysterious.

So GenCon was cool. I got to hang with several notables in the field of nerdom.  I went to dinner with Howard Taylor and Michael Williamson. The crew of Smirk and Dagger Games invited me to hang out.  They didn't even get mad when we came up with the most horrible Run For Your Life Candyman supplement ever. The guy that invented Killer Bunnies came to my booth to tell me how much he like Redshirts, and I managed to avoid squealing like my daughter when she gets a new stuffed animal.  But just barely. I spent time chatting with Randy Milholland of Something Positive, and Lar Desiuza of Least I Can Do and Looking For Group. I had a booth right across from Slugfest Games.   Years ago one of their bigwigs graciously allowed me to pitch one of my board games to them.  And then in a polite, professional, and not unkind manner they ripped it apart.  I used the advice they gave me to improve how I went about game design.  I would quite literally not have my company today if it wasn't for them.  I told them so too. I met a lot of folks who retail my game, and sold a lot of product.  Like a ridiculous amount.  We sold through all of the promo cards we had in stock and our artist, David Reddick was there to make custom Redshirts.  We actually turned a profit going to GenCon, and I have been informed that doesn't happen very often. And  managed to trade copies of my game for a few hundred dollars of other peoples games. I only had one person say that the rules were so badly written that they practically ruin the game.  Granted they were a famous cartoonist, but hey, you can't win them all. There are days when it sucks to be Skippy.  Those four days in Indianapolis where not among them.

I arrived at Vegas for the Star Trek Creation con on Tuesday.  Nichelle Nichols was present as a guest of the con. Over the weekend, she had moved on to Space City Houston, where there was another booth set up by the WeaselPants team.  Suspicious. At GenCon Ms. Nicholls was a guest of Honor yet again.  I think that she is stalking us. Vegas was hot and expensive.  We sold some product (although not as much as I would have liked) and made a ton of good contacts in the Star Trek community.  I got to finally meet my artist David Reddick, in person. Lessons learned from the Star Trek con:

  1. If you get the theme from the Gary Shandling show stuck in your head, it ain’t coming out any time soon.
  2. If you take a booth assistant to a Star Trek convention, make sure she knows something about Star Trek.  So she doesn’t accidently try to sell your game to LeVar Burton.
  3. This is the theme to Gary’s Show…
  4. Be nice to people.  You never know when that woman you helped in booth set up might turn out to be the personal assistant of a famous Trek Actor.
  5. Australians in Star Fleet uniforms are crazy.
  6. …the theme to Gary’s show…
  7. Most famous actors are very pleasant well-adjusted people.  But a few will go off like a human land mine.  They don’t have anything personal against you, but if you happen to be there when they detonate, it will end badly.
  8. For some reason, people will approach your booth, tell you that they bought your game online, and hated it.  And then they will buy the promo cards.
  9. …Gary called me up and asked me if I would write his theme song…
  10. There is such a thing as a Tribble crane machine.
More details on GenCon soon.

Starting next week WeaselPants will be appearing at the Creations Star Trek Con in Vegas, Space City Con in Houston, followed by GenCon in Indianapolis.  Stop by to chat about Redshirts, ask about upcoming titles, and see our new Redshirts products. We have three new Promo cards that will be making the trip to the various cons with us.  Afterwards they will be available for sale from the website. Tomorrow we will have another new announcement, concerning another product.  

This weekend, Redshirts will be demoing at two different cons in the Dallas area.  ReaperCon( Thursday the 17th and Sunday the 20th) , and Dallas Comic Con(Saturday and Sunday the 19th and 20th). The game will be available for sale at both cons, and all the promo cards will be free with any con purchase. So if you are going to be in the Dallas area this weekend, go ahead and give us a visit.
