Home from Origins, and very glad to be back - it was great fun, but cons can be tiring, and every time I saw a toddler I missed my wife + son a bit more. This is the first time I've roomed with 2 other folks at a con, and it changed the dynamics even more than going with one other person.

Games with BGG entries, with very short impressions:
* Argent: The Consortium (with expansion) (x2) - finally resolved my tempo issues with this.
* Castles of Mad King Ludwig (new!) - two days post-play, was increasingly dissatisfied with the mechanics but increasingly enamored of the game. Pre-ordered.
* Cavum (thanks, Jimmy!) - Good, but prolonged by AP. Plan on gentle game timer in future.
* Fairy Tale
* Fealty - no-chance variant with experienced players.
* Finca (new!) - neat movement and pleasantly convoluted collection incentives.
* Going, going, GONE! (new!) - silly little auctions + real-time + good scoring system = much more fun than I'd thought
* Hanabi - "I'm sure we'll get 25." HAHAHAHA.
* Innovation (x2) - once straight, once with Figures in the Sand (which I'm liking a lot).
* Krosmaster: Arena (demo) (new!) - Bryan's descriptions prompted me to try this out.
* Merkator (new!) - maybe my favorite Rosenberg since Agricola? Some concern about static card synergies, and interactivity rather indirect.
* Monopoly Deal (new!) (x2) - low-thought 10-minute filler - better than expected from the name.
* Shadowrun: Crossfire (new!) - quick and brutal co-op, some fun, failed immersion.
* Smash Up (new!) - ...yup.
* Subdivision (new!) - interestingly puzzley, but low interaction, and scoring was disappointingly highway-dominated.
* The Duke (x4) - great for waiting in the airport.

Games without BGG entries:
* Alchemists (new!) - An upcoming Essen release by CGE, discussed by Ben here. Enjoyed, despite one player hitting heavy AP lock on deep deductions halfway through the game (I'd have minded less if I'd had the data to spend time doing deep deductions of my own, but he'd been a bit luckier with his experimental data). Would enjoy playing again.
* Cataclysm (working title) (x4) (new!) - A prototype social-deduction game by Trey Chambers. Still in a fair amount of flux; started out the weekend like Avalon with heavy modifications, ended much more its own thing. Many of the resources that are unlimited in Resistance/Avalon are limited in this, which created both very interesting dynamics and thorny design problems.
* Commedia (x2) (new!) - A 2-player microgame under dev by Level 99 Games; probably my favorite microgame yet. (I know folks who do Commedia, so I may be biased. But on first blush, the game's quite good.)
* Paradox (new!) - "You invented time travel and broke the Universe. Now you're trying to fix it." Upcoming Kickstarter by Split Second Games. (their page) You draft chunks of spacetime (a given world's Past, Present, or Future) that you must then fix in a limited number of turns. But whenever someone fixes something, the rupture in space-time shifts, unmaking whatever world it hits; to score your work on a world, it has to exist at end-of-game. Resources to do all this come from an individual puzzle-grid reminiscent of many "make rows" computer games; rows of 4 self-destruct to grant 1 resource, rows of 5 grant 2, you get two (constrained) swaps per turn. Quite enjoyed, especially having seen the things you add once you're comfortable with the teaching game.
* Spirit Island (x2) - two actual games with experienced players, and some dev work re-creating Ocean's Hungry Grasp, a spirit that brings the oceans off the island into play.
* ...and two prototypes I don't know the (working) names of. One was one of the more enjoyable memory games I've played, but is in so much flux it's probably utterly different already. The other was early-stage prototype by Brian Suhre (designer of Paradox, above) in the middle of feeling out a theme that meshed well with the mechanics.

Roughly half of my 33 plays were prototypes or games not yet released.

Not everything was playing games; I was also running some demos of Spirit Island, talking to a publisher about Response Lab Alpha[1], catching up with random con friends, birthday shopping in the dealer's hall... and eating astonishingly good Jeni's ice cream[2] every single day. OM NOM NOM.

Yeah. Very fun con. But no wonder I'm tired. And I should probably go do immense amounts of exercise to work off all that ice cream.

[1] = Another game I've got out there - it's been with a publisher since BGG.CON last November.

[2] = ...uh-oh. They offer flat-rate shipping of ice cream. And we have a chest freezer. This is AWESOME. And DANGEROUS.

I was there 3 times yesterday, as my house hunting and errands kept me crisscrossing right past it. Didn't help, they're short on warehouse help and the bins are just trickling out. I'm wondering if some of the stuff is never going to she up or if there will be an avalanche sometime soon.

With a visit to this Columbus Ohio con on my schedule - I don't think I'll be able to go the entire month with no new to me games, but you never know.

"demos" don't count, do they?

I am in.

UPDATE: I am no longer "master of my domain". I feel like Kramer on Seinfled's episode titled "The Contest." I played Merkator at the FLGS on 6/1, but we did play it twice.

Simple trivia game about the origins of words, clichés, etc. so the questions and answers are really interesting.

Wednesday

Summary: Registration, silent auction drop-off and 1 great game play.

I arrived at the convention on Wednesday at 4 to pick up my registration badge and drop off 24 items for inclusion in the silent auction before my first scheduled game at 6:30. There were no lines at registration and no line at the auction, so I had all my logistics completed by 5 and had 90 minutes to just wander around. Things were still getting set up and the halls were sparse.

In 2011, Origins felt a little desperate. I didn't get that feeling this year. Most people were upbeat and the energy at the show was high. Despite the repeated issue with not being able to play many games (someone, please encourage publishers to have a few spots off the dealer floor where people can get a lesson or two on playing some of the newer games), I thought Origins was good this year, and I did not get the feeling that it was a con on its way down. If anything, I was really wishing I could ditch the kiddies and spend a couple days playing games here. Maybe next year.

Although I didn't get a ton of gaming done on my second day and I probably spent more on food and games than I should have, Origins was a big success.

I came home with ten new games, only one of which I've played before. And four of them were free.

I got to play six games that I have been reading about and was considering buying and can make future purchases much more confidently.

I got to show my prototype off to two more people and got to play a new game that will hopefully get published.

Everyone I interacted with was friendly and Jim and John were hugely helpful as I try to get my game published.

Best of all, I introduced my wife to the world of boardgame conventions. Now when I make her watch The Guild with me or read a Dork Tower comic some of the jokes will make more sense to her.

much applause in the lecture-room, How soon, unaccountable, I became tired and sick; Till rising and gliding out, I wander’d off by myself, In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time, Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars. W.W.

So exactly how did a young boy growing up in Tennessee become an Oakland Raiders fan? Well, it all started in 2nd grade. My father didn't watch football nor was I remotely familiar with it. One fateful day at school, the class was on its way to the restroom. As the Raiders were getting ready to play the Eagles in Super Bowl XV, one of my fellow classmates asked me who I was rooting for. I said the Raiders since they had a better name. The Raiders went on to win the Super Bowl and the next year I started watching a little bit of football on television. When Marcus Allen came to town I developed my first childhood sports hero and by the time they won the Super Bowl again in 1983 against the Redskins, I was a full fledged fan of the Silver and Black. However, during these formative years, I really had no idea of who Al Davis was.

"How did it get there?"

"The Snake put it there to separate the Moon from the Earth."

"What is the sun?"

"It is a boat, my child."

"Who sails in the boat?"

"It is a Dragon, and he spends the day drinking the waters of the ocean so that every night the Moon and the Earth may see each other once more."

"May I sail on that ocean, grandfather?"

"Someday you will, and you will see much greater things than these."

I like me some gaming conventions--especially Origins--so I had to ask the designer if Clever Mojo Games and Alien Frontiers would be present (and demoing?). Here's part of the answer he gave:

"...I am nearly certain that I will be at Origins 2011, though whether I'll be working a Clever Mojo Games vendor booth or just running Alien Frontiers demo games in the board room is still up in the air. I'm a real convention noob and I'm not ashamed to say that I'm a little bit scared of an event the size of Origins. I'm kind of hoping I can find another small-press game publisher and we can share a booth and help each other out...But yes, in one capacity or another, I'm going to be there to fly the Alien Frontiers flag."

You know what that means? If you're at Origins this year, you're likely to find WonderWitch in the Game Room with blue dice clutched in my fist.

I had a great time at Origins this year. Thanks to all the folks who played games with me, and thanks to everyone who came up to me and said "I really like your podcast". It means the world to me.

I'll be giving my Origins wrap up on the next episode of "Game On! with Cody and John", hopefully releasing on July 4th. Please go to http://www.gameonpodcast.com and have a listen!

And, don't forget, Gen Con's only a little more than a month away! Game On!

I first met Tom in 2005. i had just found the RBS group and had plans to go to Origin. we were doing some carpooling and one of them also needed some hotel space. i had a room for just my friend and myself, so Tom spent the weekend with us.

I learned very quickly that if i needed to find Tom, all i had to do was wander around the back corner of the boardgame area, where the train gaming was going on and I would find him. his Badge at Origins always identified him as "Traingamer Tom"

we had a great time, including chastising tom for some odd gastronomical choices

of course playing many games with him at RBS events came later, and i learned just how dangerous he could be.

Obviously Memoir and C&C are not original because they are very similar to Battle Cry. Most of the rest of this scoring seems fairly predictable.
