CabinCon 2019

Our annual gathering , CabinCon, happened this past weekend with four of us making the initial trek up the mountains this year. Sean, Colton, Reese, and I got things settled upon arrival and immediately jumped into some gaming. We kicked things off with a game that caught my eye in a living room full of game boxes and tubs: Meeple Circus.

Sell Outs and Liars

Gen Con events went live this weekend and things went pretty smooth on my end. It is usually a frustrating time as their site crumbles under the weight of thousands of gamers furiously refresh their screens trying to get events. Either the events I prefer these days aren’t popular or I got in early in the queue but there wasn’t really anything that sold out for me. Well except for my hosted events.

But I can’t count that as a bad thing.

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.
