208Re: [pennsicgames] Classes at Pennsic 40
- Apr 28, 2011I will at least do Shogi (Japanese Chess) and Hurling then. Shogi at the Gaming tent, Celtic Hurling on the battlefield after the tent closes some day or days. Maybe also Xiang-qi (Chinese Chess) at the tent.Good news on the Shogi front - I think I'll have a decently priced Shogi set for sale this year, looks like one of my suppliers got a line on them. Don't even have a pic yet of them, but there's two different items, one with a wooden board and I think plastic punt-shaped pieces (I THINK it's much like the set I've been using to teach with for years that I couldn't get for less than 40.00 retail - you may have seen it at the tent, I prefered using it to the hand-made wood-burned ones from Baron Salaamallah that were all I could get at a decent price point for years) will be $35.00, one for $45.00 (board that has drawers for pieces). Not sure yet if they'll have the international symbols or the Japanese symbols - but I have labels to cut out and stick over them till you learn the symbols. Maybe I'll sell the labels separately now.Hmm....Anyone remember how many people took a Shogi class before, when it was offered? I recall teaching it once, I had 10 sets of handouts and more people than that there taking the class. I think someone else also taught the class other times?Also, I probably will have limited numbers of all Shogi sets for sale there this year, if anyone on this list wants to pre-order and reserve one (at a small discount off the retail price for ordering in advance) please let me know off-list. Otherwise I certainly won't have many in stock, and several of the people on this list (as well as other people) have asked me for such an item for years.GalenOn Apr 29, 2011, at 12:33 AM, James McAdams wrote:

I've never been involved in Pennsic staff, but I read the original comment from the opposite perspective. We need to keep showing that 600 square feet is better used as "Gaming Tent" than as "generic A&S tent #16".
To which - I've signed up to teach Go 3 times, and a class on El Mundo.
