Winter House Con And The Final Countdown

As 2018 quickly draws to a close, my game group decided to get a last game day in.  We started at about 8:30 am at Reese’s and went all day, with the last of us leaving shortly before midnight.  It was great, it was epic, and as always, a fun time with friends.  I don’t know if we can make this a tradition but it seems like a great way to close out the year.

Frostgrave Friday

No, this won’t be a new series, it’s just a cheap alliteration.  I still have stories that need be told from my adventures at Gen Con and I wanted to focus in on my Frostgrave experience in particular.  The best event I participated at the ‘Con was the Frostgrave free-for-all hosted by the game’s designer Joseph McCullough. The host was nice, the game was great and everything was well run.

Gen Con 2018: Day 3

With half of the Con down, Saturday started with the usual crush of weekend attendees. I tend to avoid the dealer hall on the weekend as it is just too crowded.  Instead, I had my Dropzone Commander event in the main event hall.

Walking Dead Wednesday: Gen Con 2018

So I fixed all the sideways image files.  Uploading from my phone tends to do that.  The good news is I figured out a workaround for future phone posting.  Even better news is that I carved out some time to wrap up my Walking Dead doings at Gen Con.

Gen Con 2018 Day 1

Day one Gen Con 2018 passed with a blur as I filled my schedule with events. It started off with X-wing 2.0’s preview tournament. This turned out to be more “preview” than “tournament” but was pretty fun even if winning didn’t actually mean anything.

Gen Con 2018 Day 0

The first unofficial day of Gen Con started Wednesday and usually it is a quiet affair with us picking event badges and tickets and then settling in for some pre-Con gaming. This year, Fantasy Flight decided to mix it up and run their InFlight Report of what is up-and-coming before the Con started. They started off with some lighter announcements of Arkham Horror 3rd edition but then finally got into the meat with a big Star Wars Armada announcement.
