Gen Con 2016 was a whirlwind of gaming, events, meet-ups, and fun. This year I decided to forgo the multi-day tournament route and focus on smaller events/tournaments and check out some non-standard activities. After 10 years of attending, I’m missing more and more so I’ve let go of that compulsion to try to do everything and just do what I can and what is fun.
So I finally have an open weekend to catch up a little bit and it’s time to recap the events of this year’s Cabin Con gathering. We decided to extend the convention by starting on Wednesday night instead of Thursday night. This is the length of our annual Gen Con adventure and that length always felt like the perfect amount of time without becoming too long.
I picked up an out of town friend on Wednesday afternoon and after a bit of traffic, we met up with some of the others and caravaned up to the cabin. After some grocery shopping to stock up, we made it to the cabin and immediately busted out the games.
