Took the plunge and headed up to the wintry shores of
Lake Geneva for the annual gaming convention that honors D&D's patron saint. The venue for GC
was booked up way in advance, luckily the cons overflow hotel was just down the
road so things worked out fine.
Have to say it was a great con, not the largest - but very condensed with what I look for in a gaming convention. Had some great conversations with Jeff Easley, Frank Mentzer and Steve Chenault, all very approachable and incredibly good people.
Moved on to a couple of miniature games with another nice guy, Mike Carr. He is a focused individual during the game and kept things moving quickly. We continued the fun with D&D Next as well as AD&D 2nd ed. Both games had some awesome role-playing on the parts of the DMs. Its fun when people put in the effort to make a game work, many games I wandered past had a lot of energetic role-playing going on. At the vendor’s room I picked up some sweet loots at good prices, after haggling of course! I will post some pics as soon as I sort them out. Game On!
