Thursday opened the Con with its typical crush of attendees all vying for position at the main entrances.
I hope your 2016 went well. I’m pretty happy with how it went on the gaming front this year and so this will be one of those obligatory “review” posts. This was a “do or die” year for this blog as I had to decide if I wanted to pursue this passion or give it up due to lack of time and commitment. As you can tell, I chose to keep it going and I’m really glad I did. I’ve had the chance to meet some great people and the research that goes into each post is really showing me that pimping games has really come into its own in this hobby.
In 2016, I showed off some of my favorite pimped games like my Thunder Road Advanced and the Rum and Bones “travel” set, the latter of which was featured in a CMON facebook post earlier in the year. I also finally posted my Assault on Hoth set, which has been a work in progress over the last few years (thanks to Rogue One for galvanizing me to finish up).
If you missed my part 1 post, you can see it here.
Gen Con 2016’s Thursday was coming to a close, or at least the dealer hall was as it was getting into the late afternoon. Fortunately for me, my day was finally getting into full gear. It was Blood Rage Tournament time! This was a series of two Blood Rage games and the top 4 total scores would play a final game for the tournament prize: a full Kickstarter Exclusives set. Pretty choice swag if I could get it.
