Until I sleep enough to want to finish my BGG.Con session report with all the fun stories of the people I met and games I played, here is the short-short version. The actual session reports for the first two days are at my LJ (www.livejournal.com/users/anyeone) and the rest will go up in the next couple days.

Played Friday with Ray Mulford, Kevin Nunn, Kevin Horovitz, Keith Blume, and a gentleman whose name I forgot to write down who was significantly quieter than the rest of the players. I think his first name might have been Rob.

I tied for last with Kevin Nunn. W00t!

Played Friday night with Morgan Dontanville (Guild), Daniel Karp (Fremen), Jon Harrison (Emporer), and Nate Sandall (Harkonnen)

Long live the Atreides! We didn't win, but at least we kicked the sh*t out of the Harkonnen slime!

(Love you, Nate! *mwah*)

Played Saturday with George Shafer, Tim Burnett, and Mark (H.- can't remember how to spell his last name) from Round Rock.

Discovered at the end we'd been paying for builds incorrectly (which led to Tim's runaway win!) and that we'd never bothered to read the end scoring secion, which would have made a big difference to strategy. We all liked it and want to try again with the correct rules.

Tower of Babel. Meh. The game wasn't so great, the singing in the pub was gawd-awful, and so we hurried back to spend the next few hours playing...
