Wild Wild West Con 2018 panel Totally Intentional: A Compliment Course

March 27th, 2018

At Wild Wild West Con we join the delightful Madame Askew & the Grand Arbiter as they share strategies for wielding a well-timed compliment in the heart of a duel or during teatime. Smooth your way, make friends, & further the plots of world domination with the perfect compliment.

I like that they even provide tips on how to receive compliments!

For more on compliment dueling please see our other videos and recordings:
