I was excited to see a small number of tables set up to play games at the Salt Lake City Comic Con. (It's our first one!) Here is what I saw.

This seemed to be a Con favorite. I saw this card game being played at a number of tables.

This was the first time I have seen this one in play. The guys playing it seemed really immersed. I need to give it a try.

An employee at a local game store was teaching a couple to play this game. He was quite friendly and seem to be doing a good job.

Ticket to Ride is a classic and a great entry-level game.

I can't get over the quality of the materials used in this game. As a fan of Wings of War, I need to take a chance to play this game.

It looks simple enough to learn to play quickly, but complex enough to challenge seasoned players.

This is an incredible model. I am continually stunned by its detail. FFG did a great job.

No one was playing this game at the time, but I saw a really cool deck mat for the game. I would love to buy one, but the game store employee I spoke with said that it was a promotional item from the company.

Another great game. I love the theme. We usually play the Variant that makes the Villains more difficult to face.
