First, a warm thank you to all who came by to see me at Detroit Fanfare last weekend. Also, a belated Happy Halloweento all of you. With my love for horror, it’s one of my favorite holidays of the year, and I can honestly tell you it’s even more fun when you’re a dad. For my many Indian friends, I wish you a Happy Diwalithis weekend. We will be celebrating Diwali with our Indian friends at our home on Sunday. This may be the first brunch where I’ve had to forgo bacon, but I’ll take one for the team for friends.
Okay, here’s where I’ll be this weekend, most relevant to those of you who will be in the Chicagoland area this weekend:

WASTED LANDS GAME UPDATE:
I wanted to also share with you an update on my WASTED LANDS game, IRON WARS. We are currently designing the train game pieces for the board, courtesy of my Z Brush friend Dave Taylor of Imagination Rendered in Valparaiso, Florida. In terms of game play, we received great reviews from the game testing we did at GenCon and we believe it’s ready for prime time. Now I am doing the art for the trading cards.
