Our 5 year celebration of Castle Panic is fast approaching! Next Saturday, September 13, we will be hosting a Live Google Hangout with Justin De Witt, the designer and creative force behind Castle Panic. The Hangout will be from 1-3 pm Central Time.
It is easy to participate in this Hangout, and it promises to be a fun, interactive way to learn more about our best-selling cooperative game and the people who make it. Justin will be sharing early artwork and design concepts for Castle Panic, as well as talking about his future plans for expansions to the game. You won’t want to miss it!
So, how do I participate?
To get the most out of the event, it helps to have a Google+ Account. If you are signed in to your account, you can go to the Google Hangout Event url and under the “Are you going to watch?” section on the right hand side of the screen, you choose “Yes”. This will set up your Google Account to send you a reminder when the event is about to start.
With a Google+ Account, you will be able to submit questions directly via the Q&A App embedded in the Google Hangout format.
Do I have to have a Google+ Account?
No, you don’t. You can watch the Hangout via the url given above, or via the Live Stream on YouTube.
We are also embedding the Live Stream onto the Castle Panic Birthday webpage, so you can watch it there as well.
How do I submit a question if I am watching the Hangout, but am not logged in to a Google Account?
You can submit your questions to @firesidegames on Twitter or email our Marketing team with your question. We will have a staff member monitoring our Twitter Feed and the email account to pass the questions along to Justin during the Hangout. We may not get all the questions answered, so please be patient and understand we are doing our best to include everyone.
When commenting on Twitter or other social media forums, we ask that you use #HappyBdayCastlePanic so we can easily identify your questions and comments and stay in touch with you throughout the day.
What if I am busy during the actual Hangout, but want to see what was shared?
No problem! The Hangout will be recorded and posted to Fireside Games’s YouTube Channel for future viewing.
Share with us!
We want to hear from you! If you are a Retailer hosting a party at your store, or a fan hosting a home party, tell us about it! You can share information on our Facebook Event Page, Tweet at us (use @firesidegames & #HappyBdayCastlePanic), email us, and share on our Facebook page. We’ll be doing our best to boost your signals and respond to your correspondence during the Hangout and throughout the day.

Oh, and don’t forget the cake!
