This session was the rescheduled session after we postponed the first one (we were all ill). The first session was full with a wait-list. This session we had 8 sign up and 5 on the night. I put this down to school holidays and September being festival season (Brisbane festival).
The attendees were all engaged in the game and conversation for over 2 hours. When they left they all stood outside chatting. This was fab to see. There were two people that had not been to the edge before as well.
This is the first game that we have done that we have had an external gamer on a table. It worked really well.
