My GEN CON 2016 schedule

I'm not attending Gen Con this year, so I'll be celebrating Gen Can't. Wednesday Night: The Diana Jones Award. I'll be at home, keeping an eye on twitter to see who won. Thursday morning: I'll be in the exhibit hall (Bullmoose, probably the South Portland location) to see what's on display. Thursday evening: A classic sf movie, Blade Runner, is on the big screen! If the wife can make it, we'll be up watching it! Friday evening: It's the ENnies awards! Things I'm up for have been nominated in four categories, but because I'm at home, I'll be dressed up in the finest pair of jeans I can find. Chill's quickstart adventure is up for best free product and Urban Shadows is up for best rules, game, and product of the year. Excited! Friday night: Dungeons & Dragons event R20-EE. We'll see if I TPK the group. Saturday: I'm in on a game of Star Wars: Rebellion with the wife. You can join in at our...

((Or, unless it's a vacation with the family. But there's many other places I'd rather visit with a family...

Gen Con 2013: Regret and Joy, Work and Play

Gen Con 2013: Regret and Joy, Work and Play

Gen Con 2013 was full of regret, for the people I didn't get to meet; full of joy, for the simple acts of kindness and generosity. Gen Con 2013 was full of work, with all my free time eaten up; full of play, when free time actually was free. It was an amazing show, and one that I nearly didn't attend. Luckily, things feel together not exactly at the last minute, so there I was, in Indianapolis with the best weather I've experienced for the convention.
