…they can hop along at 40 miles an hour
So, a quick recap of my 4 days at Dundracon…
1: Every game I ran or played in was lots of fun. The TOON game had a ton of people in it and all of them were funny.
2: Despite the audience submitting suggestions that were somewhat less than well thought out, the “Stump The Gamemasters” panel went very well. All of the guys showed off their creative genius, which is only to be expected when you have that many gamemasters in one place.
3: I bought very little. This was because I had a limited budget and most of the board games or RPG stuff I wanted was WAY outside it. The only new item I bought was a Pirate Fluxx deck. I did hit up the flea market for a $5 copy of Basic Role Playing and a $1 deck of Falling cards.
4: There was a Freecycle table where folks dropped off stuf they wanted to give away. Mostly, it was old board games nobody really wanted and old rpg books that I had no interest in. I did grab some coin counters and terrain hexes when somebody dumped a bunch of bags of game pieces on the table.
5: I got to chat with lots of folks I only see in person once a year, including my long time (as in 22 years) TOON player, Cody and his lovely and funny girlfriend, Amber.
6: For whatever reason, the anime shows they had running were even greater examples of Japanese strangeness than usual. At one point, just reading the subtitles of the song one bouncy breasted anime character was singing nearly melted my brain.
7: I also got to see Paul & Samantha, two of my regular gaming group folks. It’s been about a year and a half since we last gamed, but I told them we’d be starting up a new series in a month or so.
8: It was good to get back home to Grace and The Girls. They were all as glad to see me s I was to see them.
Given our somewhat improved finances, I may go to KublaCon in late May for a day. GenCon is 99% out this year, as is Origins. I’m not sure about any other cons just now.
Ok, I’m off to work. The Doclopedia post will go up tonight.
