A Special Moment for Me & VelaCards
« on: September 02, 2018, 10:29:12 PM »
So yeah... this happened tonight (here at Dragon Con)

To anyone who has doubted VelaCards stance within the Raw Deal community, let me share with you what happened this evening. Tonight, I got to be the “celebrity” when Xavier Woods, a life long gamer (of all things, not just wrestling card games), popped when he realized that I am the owner of VelaCards. He stated, (pun intended here for wrestling fans...) And I quote “I know VelaCards!”

We talked, briefly, about deck construction, strategies, his favorite era of the game, his favorite single card (Turn the Tide), the talk of there being a mobile app version of the game and more. To say it was a surreal moment is an understatement.

Honored for the recognition and validation of the efforts I’ve put forth in a community that I have supported in many ways over the better part of 15 years. Great things for the future and just a real special moment for me this evening.

That is a fabulous story!

Though I can never see a mobile game being a thing (but I hate mobile games anyway ...heh ) .....it's still good to know he could one day be Raw Dealing as himself!

Might have been small - but we should have had a Dragon*Con meetup!

WOW! Would have been so cool to have met with some people this year.

This meeting took place on Sunday night. I was with my client (Ian Ziering) and he took a step back to watch the engagement that took place between Xavier and myself. It was a pretty cool moment, I thought.

Any ways, knowing there are some people who do attend this event or are at least in the area, I propose this:

Why not have some kind of RD event take place that weekend? A one day thing? Maybe on Sunday of this event? They have an entire gaming venue that weekend. I'm pretty sure if planned right, I could arrange for a special Guest to attend and hand out prizes. =)

Let's get this discussion going and see if it's something do-able.

Pre-Backlash. His favorite deck to build is Triple H.
