Hello, Convention attendees! Guess, what, it’s that time of year, Cold Wars 2015 is literally around the corner for most of us. I have, finally, completed a decent first draft of the CW 15 Guidebook App for your convention attending pleasure. I apologize for being late– I like to have it out at least a month ahead, or close to the PEL release if possible. I received the loader data and did not notice that every single one of the GAME events loaded in as happening in May 2015. So I just finished scrubbing the dates on each and every one. That can slow things down a little.
Not a lot really. If you are Guidebook user from shows past the same color scheme holds– blue for tournaments, red for game events, green for seminars, purple for Hobby University.. if I ever get that data. There’s a much longer and definitive KID FRIENDLY GAME LIST which has it’s own “track” in the schedule. Look for ORANGE items.
Kid Friendly events have this banner:
I’ve also added a local eatery button in the main menu– this is just a list of what I could find using YELP and the Host location with a five mile radius. It is not definitive, but I hope to make it grow, and who knows, if we can get local restaurants interested in handing out discounts or coupons, maybe we can add those in too.
The map I got for the Lampeter room has no tables on it. That’s not the end of the world as the Lampeter holds tournaments and the Flea Market, and nobody really uses that map anyway. I did not include it to prevent confusion. If I get a fixed one before the show, look for an update.
I have not received the Dealer Hall layout and listing from Scott Landis yet. It should be close to final so look for an update with this information before the show.
I have not received a Hobby University update from Heather Blush yet. Look for an update before the show.
Updates.. how do those happen?
Simple. Make sure you have Guidebook open and you are connected to the Internet somehow, usually a wireless signal. The App will check for updates on the server. If there is one, it will tell you and ask for permission to download.
So where do I get this thing?
HERE is the Cold Wars 2015 Landing page. The page will have hyperlinks and bar codes to download the Android and IoS versions of Guidebook (the app) and the specific COLD WARS 2015 schedule which I have prepared for you.
HERE is a preview in browser link, so you can see what’s in the schedule.

For THE COLD WARS GUIDEBOOK
Enjoy your app, I hope it’s helpful and I’ll see you at the show.
If I have anything to communicate during the show I’ll use THE INBOX FEATURE on the app itself.
