Victory With The Malifaux 2 Player Starter Set

4 Comments

Gianna and I just got to play a game of Malifaux using the 2 player starter set. It was really well balanced, with fun abilities for both sides- the Guild & Neverborn. The great points for me was having an abbreviated set of rules available as well as everything you need to play in the box - tape measurers and all!

The fate decks were great too, as they have some explanations on them to serve as handy reminders - like the difference between the black & red jokers and whether cards register weak, moderate or severe damage.

And then there was my favorite part of the game...winning! Sorry Gianna. πŸ˜‰

We set ourselves up right next to the Infinity stand to see the rush and what a rush there was! As, you can see from the stock pile of Operation Icestorm and USAriadna boxes they were expecting a large crowd. They luckly planned correctly as the stockpiles dwindled after only a few hours

Press hour this year was very, very crowded as they combined press and other early entry attendees into one group this year. So we were only able to catch a few quick shots here and there.

This is much easier to do at the US border than it might appear – the custom agents are particular about trade shows since the information is often given out that working a trade show is not actually working in the US; it would fall under the business visitor visa – (conference) which is virtually the same as a Holiday Visitor Visa

However, if you mention that you will be selling product at the event, you need to have applied for a Business Visitor Visa (sales/selling) or you will be denied entry (though I am highly suspect that anyone will receive the 1 year return ban for this offence, that sounds like wild speculation)

Such a trifling thing to make big deal about. Sad too since GW was making an effort to engage with the public.

redben

Assuming this is true, then the fault is all with GW. You can’t go to work in the US without the right visa.
