Man, I'm looking forward to seeing them in person!

Likewise!

Quote
So in preparation to Gencon 2015 (I know it's months away), should I do a 2015 update to the Money Unit? And if so, suggestions?

I was thinking of adding new quotes, new images for the back, stuff like that.

Only suggestions I have are that this one ought to be worth some fraction of a McDuck, and if there's a possibility of working The Lady Lucille in there somewhere...

Oh right! I actually had a sketch I did related to the good lady while listening to those dreamland sessions. XD
I'll post some sketches I come up with for the back of the money unit in the money unit thread soon.
Liquid Water?

What about releasing a higher denomination of Money Units, instead of updating the One unit?

That sounds like a good idea. What's a weird denomination that would be fitting for an arbitrary measurement?

"There's at least half a McDuck's worth of gold in there!"
"I don't want to be rich, I just want to never have to think twice whether I want extra guac."

"That's not just worth a money unit, that's worth ALL the money units!"

Just a few off the top of my head.  ;)  Granted two of those were the same game

So we'd have "money units" and factions of "McDucks". There's also "treasure vouchers". And of course "drug units", the illegal currency.

So wait, how many money units are in a McDuck? How many money units can I make in a Day Unit?

And the shorthand for Money Units is MU, or μ.

I want to see a π μ bill, personally.

I'm re-listening to the 2013 & 2014 Gencon wrap-up episodes as the stars have finally aligned and I'll be able to get to Gencon for the first time this year.  Thanks for the tips!

So we'll probably repost them here, but check some of the previous year's Meet-Up threads for general con survival tips. They can pretty helpful for new attendees, though experience is the greatest teacher of all.

Another thing to do is watch the forum for the notice from Ross that the "GroupMe" text service has been relaunched. Last year everyone from RPPR who attend GenCon was able to contact one another with it and stay up about games and locations.

Made "TPK" announcements pretty hype.

The live-posting of The Lord of The Peaks and Ross' Elder Godlike, I believe, games were pretty great!

Also, I can't wait to play Mad Quao with David again. I don't think I've ever seen somebody turn that red from laughter before.

See, you say stuff like this, and now Bill's gonna try to make a public Daneurysm happen.

Mad Quao's coming with me, and I'm even contemplating a paper tiara for Quao.
As to the public Daneurysm...

Speaking of card games, Channel A will be in tow again with me this year. I can't promise that we will rope in Glancy like we did a couple of years ago, but I'll try for you guys  ;D.  Also I picked up my own copy of CAH which has a special addition to it's cards (linked for size):
