Back from BGG.con
Back home after 3 packed days of gaming in Texas. Bright spots for me were:
- Hannibal: Rome vs. Carthage
- Mission: Red Planet
Will provide additional details in the coming days. Check out Chris Brooks’ blog for a daily summary and some great pictures. A few stats from the weekend:
- 17 games played (including a 6.5 hour marathon/learning session of Hannibal) – 16 were games I’d never played before.
- Gamed with 23 people. Of those, I already knew or have previously gamed with 8 prior to this year’s BGG.con.
- Assisted with the setup on Wednesday which included 3 hours of helping assemble the mega-Heroscape map designed by Rodney Loyd (hotrodqt).
Many thanks to the organizers (Aldie, Derk, Randy, Vickie, et al) for another awesome convention. Chris and I also appreciate that Randy, Tim and Carrie hauled us around for dinner on Thursday and Saturday. It was great to get away from the hotel for a couple of hours and have an alternative to the Denny’s across the street!
