Here we go again! Definitely one of the best times of the year. I find it hard to believe it has been 9 years we've been coming to Indy for this convention.





Highlights of the con:

Mayfair + Sun King Brewery to kick off the weekend Wednesday evening.
Food trucks
JW Marriott's Velocity Grill, love that place.

Meeting and playing games with designers, particularly Grant, Ben Rosset, Ben Harkins (actually Chris... Ben was always busy). These guys inspire me to design games...
Sold games at auction for spending cash to use on new games.
Playing new rad games, like Parade, Trains, Explorers&Pirates, Guilds...
Playing Dungeons & Dragons for the first time.
AEG big game night!
And of course buying (or acquiring) new games:
Mammoth Hunters
Thurn&Taxis expansion
Dominion: Guilds
Monster Factory
Dungeon Roll
L5R swag
Trains
Guilds
Catan: Explorers & Pirates
Legacy: Forbidden Machines (and Gears of Time mini exp, too.)
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

This one is so much more fun with three players. Having three campsites with two players kinda guarantees you'll get at least one of them, unless you just play carelessly. We started this one late and aren't done yet...

Enjoyed the new more complex deck in the latest expansion for Legacy. Looking at the score, you'd think I missed a round or... or two...

This one was doomed from the beginning. We grabbed some dinner and brought it back, sitting down at this one in the RGG room. It wasn't one anyone had played yet, so no teacher. Ended up getting a demo with the other RGG volunteers... and then we took off.

Started the trek for ribbons with this one. It was a bit hard to see what tiles were built, but other than that the game was really good.

(lost the scores, mine was 128)

Continuing the ribbon trek, I wanted to play this before buying. Liked it, because it does change the rules and mixes things up. I'll buy this one.
