Good Progress on Border Reivers

I had the day off work yesterday so I got to spend a decent chunk of time moving Border Reivers forward. I finished the design of the scoreboard, and made some progress on the several of the other components. I also printed out the cards and scoreboard using their new design so that my prototype looks more accurate for the blind playtesting I'll be doing over the next couple of weeks.

I finished off the day with a trip to the bank to set up a business bank account, which went smoothly. At the end of the meeting I asked about a machine that would allow me to accept debit/credit card payments and a convention, and the guy I was speaking to went out to speak to the Branch Manager. The Branch Manager came in and put me off the PDQ machine as it would be too expensive, he then admitted the main reason he'd come in was to see the prototype I'd brought with me - which I duly showed him. He then placed an order :-) They may have got my business but I got theirs too.

Needless to say I was rather pleased with that result.

Fantastic! If your bank manager becomes a fan then you're set up!

I can but hope :-) Still things seem to be going fairly well at the minute.
