I had a really good time at ConnCon. Everyone was extremely friendly and got to learn a bunch of new games! I apologize if I don't remember everyone's names (or even captured them)... I have a terrible memory when it comes to names!

(Teacher: Linda Baldwin; Players: Larry Bogucki, Tom Haynes, Alex) This was a fun game. I would really like to play this again, now that I have a better understanding. I was grateful that I wasn't the only noob playing.

2. Board Game: Defenders of the Realm [Average Rating:7.35 Overall Rank:376]

(Teacher: Joe McDonough; Players: Steph, Dave, Dave) This was a co-op game. The group of us raced around the board, fighting minions and bosses. We started off the game in hard-mode and was not following the rules correctly. After a few rounds, it was pointed out that we were making the game much more difficult than it should be. We ended up winning this game, but it was a close call.

(Isaac & Tom Haynes) This was one of the play-to-wing games and I won it! I want to say thank you to Isaac for running through the rules for Tom and I. I look forward to playing it again, now that I own it.

(Players: Guy with Rainbow Hat, Girl with cool sunglasses, Alex, two guys with Under Armour Sweaters) I loved this game a lot. So much witty humor and so many puns! I completely intend to pick this one up.

(Teacher: Dustin Gervais; Players: Guy who ate Taco Bell, Guy who had McDonalds brought to him, Guy who I can't recall) This was a co-op game. It was a race against the evil boss. Our group ended up winning, at the very last chance.

(Players: Tom Haynes) Play-to-win game. This was a cute game. I noticed it on the table and didn't even realize it was a game 'til I picked it up. I was glad to have tried it and support a locally-made game. Cute, kind of like a reverse Jenga. I had fun playing this game with Tom, trying to set me up.

(Players: Dustin Gervais & Sleepy guy) Play-to-win game. I think this is a game that I would like to try again. I kept forgetting about certain rules of the game. It was a quick game.

(Players: Doug Faust & Rick Casiglio) Sadly, only 1 other person showed up. I suppose this is understood, being 8am on Sunday. I was glad to play an easy game where all players knew the rules.
