I never ran into George at the big local game store, which means he must have virtually never gone, since I spent as much time there as George and Cliff spent at Cheers combined. I mostly met George at either the home of a couple of gamers in town, or at his own home. At the latter, I typically played with just him and Terttu, although occasionally there would be other guests.

They had a lovely, century-or-so-old home in a residential neighborhood near campus. Two stories, a big porch. The game room was upstairs; he had a much smaller collection than I had (just a few hundred...) but it was well-curated, as we say in the rare book room at the library. He was a pretty die-hard Eurogamer; no abstracts, wargames, or games with plastic spiders in sight. Not many old games; he was of the opinion that games were getting better all the time and was always looking to play the next best thing. (Syntax ambiguity courtesy of Warren Zevon. No link; look up that great song yourself.)

Along with the games and Terttu--his four daughters had all moved out to college and beyond--he also had a wee little fuzzy geriatric dog, a hand-me-up from one of his daughters when she moved to a pet-unfriendly apartment. He had a very big heart but the intelligence of a cucumber. And not one of those newfangled sentient cucumbers they have in the fancy stores.

This was a genteel gaming establishment. Cheese and sausage, craft beer and sparkling water--away from the table. I'm very proud.

We played in the cozy--in terms of size and ambience--living room, featuring old-fashioned upholstered chairs, a zillion pictures of the family throughout its development, paintings, and evidences of his strong but understated Christian faith. Play would be interrupted now and again with one or another of his daughters calling home. Terttu did most of the talking in this environment; my guess is that George would when the games were off the table. That sort of gamer.

Talk was lively in between moves, and waiting for somebody or other to come back from an errand in the house (such as talking to one of the Hummasti ladies). I'd never start the conversation, but it would often come around to talking about me--what I wanted out of my future, what I wanted to do in a PhD program, and on and on. I was very confident then, and it was gratifying that he was equally enthusiastic. I'm vastly grateful for all the confidence that my Missouri State professors had.

And then there was talking about games coming out. Like you do.

And that was the end of BorderCon. I couldn't face a late night and long drive home the next day. So Cthulhu Wars was it for the weekend. The convention kept going until midday Monday, but left early without even playing a filler.

Great convention, super well organised and the new hotel is luxurious. My eyes! I could see the games without squinting! Well done to Neil and the crew.

Funny about the larger numbers though - often more difficult to organise a game. There was two rooms, both large, so it did take some running around to get longer, complex games played. I played about half the games I'd planned. I'd have preferred to drop some euros for FFG titles, but the majority of gamers were definitely euro fans.

Anway, really looking forward to next year. And this time, I'm REALLY going to make sure I play Cuba Libre!

And so it happened. Mid january, nearly seven months after first checking in, I went home. A good friend drove me back. It's been a major adjustment - I've had to quickly learn to be much more independent. I'm still a long way off from my pre-illness strength, probably 1-2 years out from it if the doctors are right. I still have one drain and the ostomy in - they remain until a few other internal issues have fully healed.

It's been terrific to be around my family again. Believe it or not, seven months in the hospital will have an effect on your marriage. Our oldest two kids quickly latched back onto me when I got home, but I can definitely see there have been some emotional impacts on them.

One of the hardest moments during my stay was when my (at the time) 1.5 year old son came into my room and didn't recognize me. That hurt more than I can describe. But now at home I've been able to spend quite a bit of time with him and we are definitely reconnecting.

All in all this has been an insane ordeal, for my family as well as myself. I thank God that I survived at all - it truly was a miracle. My surgeon is THE GUY for pancreas issues in our area, and he said I was the worst case he's ever seen. I've gained so much respect for my wife who became a single mother who had to care and advocate for an invalid for such a long time. She has more strength than I think she even realized.

Most of all this has made me much more aware of how little time we have together. You really never know when everything could be taken away. I hope to spend the next years spending much more time with those I love. I encourage you to do the same.

"Bringing It All Back Home"

Electric! Heresy, etc...

His best album? Top 5 for me... The electric side is a rocking, garage style thrash and the acoustic side features some of the most remarkable poetry (yes, I am using that word!) heard in 'pop'.

Well, that's all. On the last day of the con I played Splendor and another game of Roll For The Galaxy, but then there was the long trek home to my state, with my bags full of games - Imperial Settlers, Splendor, Istanbul, Hanabi deluxe, and a cheap copy of the Mayfair version of Silverton. Overall, a great week.

The year before this week had been characterised by a series of great battles between Peter and I in games that we both understood well. This year the games of that complexity - ZhanGuo and Yunnan - were not games that I was really interested in playing. Maybe next year there'll be something new from Mac Gerdts for us to fight over.

The trip home is always the worst part, but we had to get back. We had to get home to our little bit and see if she was feeling better and we had to get back and say our goodbyes to our Mickey dog.

So, over the approximately 45 hours of new year event we played 18 out of 30 games we brought, without counting the expansions. We had 47 sessions in total, and i participated in 35 of them.

Was that enough? I’d say no, but we shouldn’t be too greedy

Shawn had to go right after Colossal Cave: The Board Game. Eric only had an hour or so before he needed to go too. So Tim, Eric and I went to the bar to watch some football. After Eric left, Tim and I chatted for a bit about the con, then we split up and went back to our rooms to pack for the return trip home.

I was a bit worried about the weather, as the worst of it was supposed to hit first thing in the morning, right around the time I was supposed to leave. But everything went smoothly, there was no delay, and by noon pacific time, I was back home. A good place to be.

The con was a huge success for me, and I'm thankful to Aldie, Jeff and their great crew for all the work they did to make this possible. Also thanks to all the Team Geek members who volunteered to help, and thanks to all the great attendees- those I played a game with, and those whom I didn't get a chance to meet.

I am already looking forward to next year.

The ride home with Mark was a rich discussion about games, gaming, and the psychology of gaming and game discussion. We both agreed that as we get deeper into the hobby, the experience becomes not so much about winning but about competing, and how even a loss can be satisfying if you played well and gave the winner a run for his money. And the winner's victory is only sweet if you did indeed play well, and there's a value to acknowledging not just the play of the winner, but to all players. I plan to do this more.

THANK YOU to the organizers and all my friends, local and far away, for helping to make a great convention. God willing, let's all meet again next year if not sooner.

After that it was time to head home, and it was a great 3 days of games. Big thanks to Keith Arner for the formula 3-D track, and to North Star games for the prize support with Wits and Wagers and Say Anything. Also to HGBlob for their generous contribution to my prize chest!

GASPCon is such a fun time, I hope to see more BGG faces there next year!

I've been to some beautiful places, but there's little to top home.


Here's Greater Victoria from the water. The snow-capped mountains of Washington's Olympic National Park (USA) are just visible behind Victoria.



Downtown Victoria:



And more mountains views from the waterfront...




(Canadian Coast Guard, Canadian destroyer, American Carrier during an International Fleet Review)

And for a slightly different view, a reminder that coastal BC has a whole lot of temperate rainforst. This photo was taken just outside Victoria at Goldstream Park.




I was going to include some photos from Vancouver too, but I think I may have enough here already, so I'll just leave one:
