Gen Con 2019: Haul

With Gen Con over and my Recaps done, I finally had time to put everything away and get life back to normal. While putting everything back is never the most exciting thing to do, it does give me time to see what all I came home with.

Gen Con Recap 2019: Day 4

The final day of the Con is always bittersweet as I prepare for my big event: the annual Loopin’ Chewie tournament. While this is one of my favorite experiences, it also means that the convention is coming to a close.

Gen Con Recap 2019: Day 3

After running my events Friday night, Saturday is typically for me and where I stack most of my events. Typically, Saturday is the busiest day in the dealer hall so it works out well. Still… I can’t stay away so I had some time before my 11:00 am event so I went on tour.

Gen Con Recap 2019: Catacombs Cubes

While most of my time out at Gen Con is playing and hosting games, I also enjoy meeting up with publishers and designers to discuss their upcoming projects. I’ve been working with Aron West out at Elzra Games, developer of the Catacombs series of dexterity games. A new, non-dexterity game that Elzra has in development is Catacombs Cubes.

Gen Con Recap 2019: Day 1

Like every year, I think I’ll have time during the show to update things but that never happens. The convention is just too busy and entertaining to stop and post so as I settle back into to post-Con life, I get the energy to recapture the magic before too much of the memories fade. Because my photos are in order, it’s easiest to just go through things each day.

Double Vision

Gen Con 2019 is rapidly approaching and as I started up my annual trophy creation, I was trying to think of what diabolical new challenge I through at the Loopin’ Chewie Tournament group. Since I have to cannibalize a full Loopin’ Chewie set every three years, I had to pick up a new one this year and was left with some extra pieces.

CabinCon Infinity, Or How To Spoil Things

While I only played a small part of one game of Infinity at CabinCon, playing just one model in between two warring factions was pretty fun. There was very little risk or reward for me but it was a wildcard for Sean and Colton playing the full scenario. I tried not to play spoiler or kingmaker and really just play more character driven. This led to some imbalance as I started picking on Colton’s units that kept aggro-ing me but it was still a fun little skirmish.

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.

Finishing Up For Cabin Con

We started our annual Cabin Con yesterday but I ran out of time to post what I was able to finish up for some of our premiere games. First up is painting up my Frostgrave Tavern base for my wizard band.
