    Great let me know if you have any questions!

    In other news the Kingsport Raiders and Robot Ninjas buttons are ordered and in production. Here's the proofs from PureButtons for those:

    I'm working on the Varsity Dead button now and will be putting together the Cowboy 'Verse and Sparkly Ponies following that one. Let me know what you think of these and any suggestions you have!

    I like the sparkling ponies picture that looks like splattered paint. Are you thinking of making that their button?

    I think I would prefer the Kingsport Raiders button if it didn't have the map lines, just have a nice black Raiders logo instead as I LOVE the design of it. The Robot Ninjas button is perfect in that regard.

    I can't wait for this. I'm going to take out as many Kingsport Raiders as possible. Then I will go after the Sparkly Ponies... gotta have priorities.

    That's probably what we'll do unless I can come up with anything more sparkly pony-ish. :D

    I had that same idea myself when starting on that button and tried to replicate the smalle raiders logo used on the site and in the OP but had difficulty making the design pop in the same way.

    Bought a kit for me and one for my brother. This sounds like fun and I can't wait to play. But I do have a few questions:

    - If I am killed can we still wear my badge or do I need to take it off?

    - If I just wanted to gather intel for a while could I take my badge off, or should I wear it at all times while I am playing the game?

    Thanks!

    It's better if you take it off if you are killed. That's so players with missions don't confuse you for their target. In the past the badges were designed to be flipped upside down when you were killed but once we noticed the majority of killed players would take off their badges we changed the rules to allow that.

    At this point I won't say it's required but wearing your badge after being killed just means you are ptentially giving other players a greater chance to Gather Intel on you.

    As long as you're alive and in the convention center you need to be wearing your badge. It's really important to the game as a whole that active players wear their badges so players are able to find one another, whether it be for assassinations or gathering intel.

    Great questions! Let me know if you have any more! :)

    No problem! :) To all those who have ordered, your kits have now been shipped, barring international orders for pickup at the convention. It should take about 3-5 days for kits to arrive, let us know when you get them!

    Also here's a preview of the Varsity Dead button, let us know your thoughts!

    This sounds like a whole mess of fun! I may be biting off more than I can chew for my first PAX, but I figure go big or go home right? Once payday rolls around I'm so in.

    Great! Biting and chewing? Sounds like Varsity Dead or a reanimated Kingsport Raider!

    Looks awesome! I was debating on joining Varsity, given my costume and all, but Kingsport won me over with their awesome logo. XD

    If the buttons are still pending, and the kits are shipping, are we to meet somewhere at PAX to get the buttons?

    Personally, I'd like to know whether or not it's possible to get other factions' buttons. I love Cowboy 'Verse and all, but it'd be really cool to have all five. :D

    Yes, we'll be giving out buttons to players for their faction. I'll be at some of the pre-PAX events as well as the button meetups to give out faction buttons to players. I'll also be trying to tweet where I am if you'd like to stop by and pick yours up. I'm planning to have a sign this year to make it easy to spot me for things like this. :)

    P.S. Any meetups during PAX will be considered a safe zone.

    It is possible there's just not an official/certain way to do it yet other than getting one kit for every faction or trading buttons with other people.

    I take it that once a team is selected there will be no changing that after the order is placed?

    For the most part this is true. If you can get up with me before I print or package/ship the kit(s) to you I can substitute another faction. I usually have other faction kits available to do this.

    Yeah i just noticed how uneven the teams are is all. wasnt sure if that would provide an imbalance to the game

  • atlasalmightyatlasalmighty Registered User new member
    Just ordered 2 kits. Cant wait!

    So to get started, do we have a meet up at all? Or we do just arrive @ pax and place it on our arm ready to go as we enter the convention floor?

    They should even out a little more over time. I've actually seen a marked increase in orders over the last two days and most of those were for factions other than Kingsport.

    There is a chance of an imbalance if one faction dominates but it's actually bad for the dominant faction since every missions faction listed in a mission is linked to an actual badge. A faction with twice as many people would just increase the chances of a player getting a more specific kill and more points.

    Note that the shape still has to match however and the chances of that is set at 1 in 6 players.

    Great! There's no meetup specified though I will be posting places to pickup buttons. I've also been mulling over starting a group photo, with a meetup when PAX is over for that and buttons (and so players can meetup without killing each other!).

    To answer your question if you have your kit when PAX starts just put on your badge and dial your paranoia up!

    Received my kit today :D, just registered it on the site, but i have one small problem.

    My symbol looks like this on the site: http://phenixone.com/wp-content/themes/yoko/resources/php/service.image.symbol.php?symbol_id=134

    But my actual symbol looks like BHGYT (pink perimeter of square with little black triangle in top left) in the rules: http://www.phenixone.com/resources/games/AssassinsBall/AssassinsBall_Rules_PRIME_Draft2.pdf (second page)

    Is that going to be a problem? I'm guessing not, but I'd like to make sure :)
