Yay! Rob’s back on!

Also, I though that’s rabbitcon only happens at Rabbit’s House. Is it expanding, like PAX? Are we going to see Rabbitcon West, Rabbitcon North, Rabbitcon Austrailia...

The Wal-Mart Greeter is the perfect baby nickname.

I too have fallen down the Dropmix hole.

To clarify, there are no blind packs. All $5 packs with 5 cards have the same cards in them, based on the card you see on the cover. There are resources online that tell you which is in which pack. Here is a spreadsheet that has all the released cards.

I was able to find all the packs that had snippets of I Will Survive. I am very happy.

Rabbitcon Australia!!

Haven't listened to all the podcast yet, so I'm reading about Dropmix here.

Hmm, sounds interesting...

Go look at it's website...

Get to the bottom and see the Harmonix logo...

SPRINTS TO AMAZON....

I I picked up DropMix for Black Friday. For like $45. Didn't get a chance to play with anyone till last weekend. Was fun, and plan to get more cards as well. Got the series one and two of the booster packs. Series 3 and 4 just came out i think. A Lot of the expansion packs are exclusive to certain stores. So it makes things a bit difficult.

Glad to hear our game of Terraforming Mars get a mention on the podcast. It is definitely my favorite game at the moment, and it was great to get some folks together to play it with me at Rabbitcon. Connie and my wife Sarah were the other two players in our game.

Also, here are the player trays we were using. My wife got them for me for Christmas. I highly recommend them.

Dropmix has me mightily intrigued. Based on my experience with the Rock Band series (400+ songs so far), once I go down this rabbit hole, I ain't coming out until I'm broke.

So who around Chicago owns this game? I live in the north suburbs, and in addition to being a video game fan, I'm a professional musician. I would very much like to get some hands-on time with this game before I open my wallet.

Is someone in Chicagoland looking for someone to play this with? I have a gaming group, and we play in Mount Prospect, Lombard, or Bolingbrook - but I'm also willing to come to you!

PM me, or [email protected] - thanks!

I can vouch for Dropmix. My friend brought it over for a night, and we lost 5 hours to it without blinking. It's ridiculously good at mixing in different parts of songs.

Any idea how well it's selling? It deserves to do well.
