With a lot of the drudgery of travel out of the way, I was able to get my badge and event tickets in record time. Even though the line was about 300 people deep, the extra support staff hired for the event this year got us through the will-call line in about 20 minutes.

Since there was nothing left to do at Gen Con proper, we used the rest of Wednesday to pickup some snacks, check out our new hotel downtown, and stop by our favorite liquor store. I never remember the name so I’ll have to look it up later but it has an amazing vault converted from and old bank vault.

We ended up getting a Makers Private select that we are thoroughly enjoying. At 112 proof, this bottle isn’t messing around.

Contrary to the prevailing wisdom, you can play games at Gen Con. We ended the night with a run through of Tiny Epic Western.

I recently tried out Tiny Epic Quest as well and feel like Western is on par with Quest. The theme is present and there are a lot of things to consider. As with most of the Tiny Epic series, there is a fair amount of luck in the game which can be a downer as the game runs about ninety minutes or more.

The bullet dice are quite fun though.
