Designer interviews?

Have I missed it or has anyone posted anything regarding Q&A with the designers while at GenCon? (If so, please feel free to delete or merge this thread, admins.) I've looked in all the forums and haven't seen anything yet... Just curious.

I talked to Craig for about 2 hours at Gen Con. Once I have had time to organize, digest, and write, I will post some of the insights I gained from that conversation. Probably won't be before tomorrow. I got a lot to do.

Talk to Truth. It was his camera.

Still waiting on those reports from everyone...

Truth's video was fun and cool. But so far no one has posted anything about their discussions with CVN or anyone else. (unless I've missed it buried in some thread somewhere)

I will answer for my part. I was extremely busy the whole entire time running my events with help from a whole lot of great people. The designers were equally as busy handling masses of people all day long from open 'til close. There was no time for interviews and since Oogie had just done an excellent interview for us just 2 weeks ago, there simply was no need. Any outstanding questions you all have will just have to remain a mystery.

And I shall answer for my part. There were plenty of scapers there, most with plans to drill Craig with questions. I didn't feel that I too needed to re-ask every question.

I spoke with Craig a few times at the Con. Here is what I can remember that is interesting...
(please don't quote him via these recollections, as I was sleep deprived and may have gotten something wrong)

The Zombies will be packaged with themselves, 2 common squads of Zombies in one package. He agreed that being stuck with 3 squads of Minions was a bit harsh in order to get the 3 sets of Marro Drones.

The flagbearers will be sold individually in a $10 MSRP package at TRU.

I heard Wave 6 in December from him, but a January date from a marketing guy who was there. I responded so that means March and he laughed.

I got the overall impression that the wave 5 sculpts are not highly regarded, but everyone agrees that wave 6 is incredible.

Craig and company are already playtesting the entire line of 2007 expansions!

Craig pointed out to me that Taelord rules from the top of the castle with a squad or two of Snipers.

Craig said that they play with flowing lava using a six sider to randomly determine how it flows at the end of each round, I'm going to have to try this idea.

The Gorillanators cost was a bit high, but will make more sense with future units (girl agents?)

Heroquest designers were involved with Heroscape and there are some similarities. The dice seem to be directly from Heroquest.

That's all I have.

Game On.
