Okay this old gronard is growing on me.

So, have you ever announced a game and no one showed, found yourself sitting at your con table all alone, or posted on a public forum but got no takers? Sometimes it's just bad timing, holiday or last session of the show, and sometimes it's the bait. Yes, Gentlemen, bait! You can't just throw out a hook with no bait and expect gamers to show at your table. You need a lure to wet their appetites. So I have paid attention to Jack over the years and here is my advice on what I find 'sexy'.

All true, I think--though it's hard to get the "eye candy" into the Fall In PEL.
And it's not necessarily enough. The best-looking game I ever brought to a convention didn't attract the four players I needed to run it, while I had to squeeze them in to my worst-looking.

I wish the PEL at the HMGS east conventions had pictures of the games. I'm sure that would cost too much though.
