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.
Tag: no thanks!
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.
No Thanks! has been a favorite light game of ours for a long time. In 2013, a group of us decided to host our own private “convention” in a cabin near Rocky Mountain National Park and one of the games that came up all the time was No Thanks! again.
Since everyone enjoyed the “CabinCon” as we were calling it, we decided to make it an annual event and we started wanting to do our own convention swag. No Thanks! was such a hit, I decided to make a custom CabinCon set for every one.
