There are more than a dozen new products described in this Update. All are available now in Palladium’s online store. And there are a fair amount things going on. I hope you enjoy this Weekly Update during the holiday weekend.

The 2015 Palladium Open House ended on Sunday, May 17, and it was nothing short of fantastic. Many people told me they thought it was the best one they had ever attended. Gamers new to the Open House were amazed, saying they had never seen anything like it and that it was the best convention they had ever attended. Awesome. That was exactly the reaction we had hoped for.

Likewise, new guests and old friends who had never been to an Open House, such as Jolly and Barbara Blackburn, Tina Simmons, Victor Peterson and Matthew Balent (and his family), were equally blown away. It was awesome having Jolly and Matt B. at the Open House, because it had been years seen we’d last had a chance to see each other, sit and chat. We videotaped everything, but had audio-visual difficulties (we made a poor choice of camera)! Which is a shame, because the panel talks between me and Jolly Blackburn and me and Matthew Balent were nothing short of epic . . . at least for me. So was the closing ceremony in which I was pretty “on” and had the audience laughing throughout the two hours. We had a great time. We do have some video that should be usable, and we will post what we can soon.

We actually have a fair amount of news this week. A lot of our time remained divided between trying to finish new product releases like Robotech®: Expeditionary Force Marines, Chaos Earth® Resurrection, new Robotech® RPG Tactics™ items and others, while prepping for the Palladium Open House which is only FIVE days away!

On one hand, I’m excited that the Open House is next week and the place is really shaping up. I look forward to chatting, gaming and having fun with everyone who can make it. On the other hand, I wish the Open House was still two or three weeks away, because there is still so much I’d like to get done before it. Kathy and I are tired already, and I know Wayne and the guys are feeling the stress too. A number of unexpected issues cropped up to make this past week more than a little hellish. Feeling a bit chewed up and spit out, but still putting in long days and making headway.

We will have at least 6-8 helpers arriving early on Wednesday, which is awesome and their help and efforts are very much appreciated, but the irony is that most of the work that has to get done for the Palladium Open House should be finished by then. I hate waiting till the last minute, especially the day before. Still, it will be nice to have the helping hand and camaraderie.
