GenCon 2007

Tuesday, August 21, 2007

I have returned from the Land of Death and Gaming. And lo, it was good.

I have much to tell you. Too much, really. I'll start by giving you an overview of each day of the con. There is far, far too much to go into detail at this point. Instead, I'll give you a comparative experience so you can get an idea of what the day was like for me.

Day One (Wed): A brutally fast and tall roller coaster ride. And I love roller coasters.

Day Two (Thurs): A warm and welcome family reunion.

Day Three (Friday): A much needed and sweaty session of training at the dojo.

Day Four (Saturday): A TRIP ON THE SPACE SHUTTLE INTO ORBIT.

Day Five (Sunday): The last day of summer camp you wish would never end.

I will tell you more soon.

Extra special love and friendship to my extended family: Matt W., Matt S., Vincent, Emily, Julia, Rich, Ben, Paul, Fred, Rob, Lenny, Ron, Andy, Judd, Jonathan, Alexander, Ron, Jason, Seth, Paul, Danielle, Daniel, Gregor, Malcolm, Willow and James. You all make my life better.

We did not get enough chat time, Judd! I am a little sad about that.

Judd and I were just talking about the Harper-shaped holes in our respective GenCons. I got a little bit with the Wicked Age game, but not nearly enough to feed my Harper addiction!

I was so happy I got to meet you, John, and get to play not one, but two really awesome games with you!

The feeling is mutual, Jonathan. Um, but with differently shaped holes. :)

You too, Julia! Those games were definitely the highlight of the con for me.

It was great to be able to meet you, John, and share the memory of your amazing leap from the Moon.

It was a pleasure, Seth!

Your game is awesome. Thanks for demoing for me -- and then handing me a copy to purchase :)

I'm late to the love fest, but man it was good to see you.
