…a plan to run straight through a new garden
Con Day Three (By Roxie)
Greetings everyone! I’m Roxie and here is my Saturday con report.
Most of us had breakfast early at Pancakeville, but those who overdid themselves at the dance last night decided to sleep in a bit until their pain relievers took effect.
(Sasha: I think I threw my back out dancing.)
(Misty: Luke had cramps in three of his legs this morning.)
Rather than go straight to gaming, most of us non-humans went to the Critter City Animal Amusement Park. This is a one acre 5 level park that has all sorts of fun things for animals to do. No humans except for the staff are allowed. It is truly fun for all ages, since there were kittens & puppies playing right alongside elderly critters.
(Daisy: That place is great, especially since the renovated it and added 2 more levels.)
After that bit of fun, we went to the con and played the usual mixed bag of games. I know that Leon, Max, Buster, Moose and Ollie played some sort of big wargame.
(Leon: It was “Battlefront: Central Park 1992”. There were 16 players in the game, which is based on the Neighborhood Wars that dogs & cats fought tn back then.)
Daisy ran two sessions of D&D.
(Daisy: “Tunnels of the Kobold King” and “The Flying Islands”)
Luke & Misty gave a seminar on acting for roleplayers.
(Misty: It went very well and we signed a right gob of photos.)
I’m not sure about everyone else.
(Janet: I spent most of the day playing Arkham Horror.)
(Sadie: I played in a Toon game with Sasha & Chance, then we cruised the Dealer’s Room.)
(Silky: I got into a poker game. Came out $1,500.00 ahead.)
I played a game of Nuns On The Run, which was great. Later, I played Settlers of CATan, which is always fun and challenging. Finally, I got into a game of Blue Rose with Daisy, Snowy and Janet. That lasted until 9:30, after which we went to yet another big party.
This party was also part LARP, since everyone was either a spy, an asset, a liability, an innocent civilian, or any mix of those four. There were alliances, betrayals, double/triple/quadruple crosses, assassinations and plenty of shaken, not stirred vodka martinis. I know my Mom, Ginie, killed two Chinese spies and my Auntie Avis double crossed Uncle Doc (KGB) and Uncle Peter (MI6) before she got double crossed by Silky and some young human lady. The party lasted until 2:00 and we all had big fun.
(Silky: Auntie Avy was laughing at the looks on their faces while I was busy turning her over to S.H.I.E.L.D. Hahaha!)
(Leon: I was just an innocent Senator from New Hampshire who got blackmailed into working for SPECTRE.)
(Daisy: Dude, you volunteered to work for them when the guaranteed you re-election!)
And now I need my beauty sleep, my friends. Come back tomorrow for more reportage.
