Being part of a local Western PA club (GASP), our convention, which happens to keep getting bigger, is a big deal for me. This is the con that I put all of my effort into as a host and as someone who runs a bunch of games. it takes a ton of time to prepare as anyone that runs events at the multitude of conventions will know, but it's very much worth it. This is a list to share a little of what I did, and hosted at GASPCon 2013.

One of my roles in the club is setting up a con wide meta game. This year it was loosely themed with pirates and all of the tasks that I did were somewhat tied to piratey games.

The Official rules slip contained the following:
Arrr the Kingdom be plagued with Pirates!
They have been raiding the kingdoms lands, & the King has asked for those brave enough to track them down & put a stop to it! Manage to defeat all 14 pirates & collect your share of the Pirates Booty.
Complete all 14 Quest on the back of this page and collect your tokens . On Sunday at 1PM all who completed the quest will be asked to step forward.
Those who complete all 14 quests will be awarded prizes from the Pirate Bounty but you must be present to win. The treasure will be split between the successful questers.
Good Luck in your Journey!

1. The first pirate sails on the Victory. To defeat this pirate, you must simply win a game, & notify the royal librarian on duty that you have done so.
2. The Hopeless, a small slow ship is the next on your list. This pirate can only be defeated by finishing in last place in a game, or dying in an RPG. Notify the librarian to get your token.
3. The Byrd is an elusive ship that can only be tracked down & defeated by talking about the convention over the internets. Blog, Tweet, Facebook, Google+, etc… Show your proof at the registration desk & you will get your token.
4. The Kraken in a fierce vessel that is near invulnerable. In fact it can only be defeated between 11:30PM, & 12:00 AM. Luckily, it’s very easy to defeat at this time, & you need only show up at the main registration desk to claim your token.
5. The Flamingo is said to be sailed be inexperienced pirates. To defeat them, you must play a library demo game. Once you have played, you will receive your token.
6. Satan’s Shepard can only be defeated by teaching others to play games. You must teach three people some game, any game, & claim your token at the library.
7. The Karat is a ship with a huge weakness. You only need check out a game from the library to defeat it.
8. The Black Spot can only be defeated by solving the boat token challenge. The registration desk will have a sheet with several ship tokens from various games on it. You must identify 14 of these to get your token. Luckily, there is a list of games to pick from. All of the answers will be from that list.
9. To defeat the Rat, you must solve a series of picture based puzzles. Each line will be a different game name. When sounding out the different pictures in each line, you will know which game it is. Bring the correct results to the registration desk to get your token.
10. The Minotaur Can only be defeated by opening the box of death. Your token will be inside. The Box of death can be found at the library.
11. The Scurvy is a particularly terrible foe. It can only be defeated by eating 10 different jelly beans. Beware! Some jelly beans taste better than others… This can be done by finding the Royal Constable.
12. The Journey can be defeated by tracking down & finding each of the 15 different tokens hidden throughout the convention floor. Each token will have a number on it from 1 to 50. Once you have the correct numbers, bring it to the registration desk for your token.
13. The Parrot must be defeated by identifying 7 different sounds that come from new world animals. There will be a list of possible suspects, but you must match the animal to its sound.
14. The Blood Diamond can be found by solving the riddle of “Who grabbed the kings Jewels?”. The King will have the first part of this puzzle, & once you’ve completed it, he will give you your token.
15. The Iris is a mercenary vessel that has been reported to raid villages lately. Defeating this ship will gain you a wild token that can be used instead of any one other token that you failed to get. To get this token, playtest the Spiritual successor of ETI. You will find it in your schedule of events.

I'll go over the individual puzzles in the next few items.

The first several items were simply a way to give people a goal to shoot for and to push them to interact with other convention goers. Win a game, lose a game, Tell your friends about the con, Show up late at night, Play in one of our demo games, Teach other people how to play something, or check out a library game. These were pretty easy to accomplish and gave people tokens to collect as well.

Each of the tokens were resource meeples that I had gotten from various sources online.

One challenge had people figuring out which ship went with which game. They only had to get 14 right, and it sounds easier than it is if you haven't played these games...

The remainder of the tasks were:
Open a wooden puzzle box, and get a token out of it,
Eat one each of the different bean boozled jelly belly jelly beans.
Find each of 15 tokens from last year hidden around the convention in the main hall as well as the RPG areas.
Identify 7 different animal sounds (including the fox). originally they were in boxes using greeting card sound inserts. this didn't work so well so I just set up a laptop with the mystery sounds on it.
One task was basically a clue knock off where people had to track down those of us who run this thing and eliminate possible answers to find out who grabbed the kings jewels.
The final task was a wild card where people could playtest a game being designed by eye level entertainment. I did play this game and enjoyed it.

First off I joined a star wars X-wing game that had 3 Vs. 3 players trying to capture a capital ship. I was only the rebel side with a squadron of 3 B-wings. Ten Numb fought well before getting blown out of the sky, but the rebels held on to win the day!

the X-wing game too a while and by now it was time for Wits and Wagers! I host this every year and enjoy coming up with my own questions. The Friday night game had the following questions:

1. Pittsburgh was home to a giant rubber ducky earlier this year. Many people went to see it, it was on the news, etc… Each city that has had a giant rubber duck has had one specifically made for that city. In feet and inches, how tall was the Pittsburgh Rubber duck?
Spoiler (click to reveal)
a. 39 feet, 4 inches. On the news it was often rounded up to 40 feet.


2. GASP has several MTG players, but how many know this? Excluding basic land cards (more simply put, money cards), how many different MTG cards are there?
Spoiler (click to reveal)
a. 13,699


3. The longest ever recorded living cat ‘Crème Puff’, died on August 6th, 2005. How old was she at the time of her death?
Spoiler (click to reveal)
a. 38 years and 3 days.


4. In Star Wars, Darth Vader commands a Super Star Destroyer called the Executor. In miles, what is the official length of the ship?
Spoiler (click to reveal)
a. 11.8061 (19KM) ~ 11 Miles 4256 feet


5. Easter island is home to giant stone figures called Moai. How many of them are on Easter island?
Spoiler (click to reveal)
a. 887


6. Penguins Goalie Marc Andre fleury has been criticized for his play over the past couple of seasons. Despite that, he has still performed remarkably well. Through Wed. nights game, How many wins does he have to his credit through both regular season and playoff games?
Spoiler (click to reveal)
a. 304 or 305 with win on Wed.


7. Everyone here likely knows about LOTR. Most have probably even read the books. Perhaps it will help you answer this question: How many words are in the printed LOTR?
Spoiler (click to reveal)
a. 481,103


The winner got a game and second place got a peanut butter filled chocolate death star.

I had never played this before, and I thought it was a fun diversion. Really it's a toy more than a game, but we played 3 or 4 games before someone else checked it out.

This was the big event I was excited about. This year, Keith Arner was nice enough to provide terrain for the track that I built. I didn't really have time to test the track beforehand, but the results were awesome. 3 out of 8 people crashed, and the track was pretty challenging without being impossible. The winner didn't pit, but others weren't so lucky. I finished second.

Here are some pics:




The Avalanche that closes part of the track after lap 1:


Happy winners (year end top 5)

Saturdays round had 7 new questions. The interesting thing is that I think I had all new players for round two. There are a bunch of people like this game at GASP.

Here were the questions:

1. The Steelers have really sucked in 2013. They are well on their way to what will likely be a rare losing season. Since 1933 when the franchise began, how many losing seasons (below .500) have they had?
Spoiler (click to reveal)
a. 32


2. How many components are found inside the box for Stone Age?
Spoiler (click to reveal)
a. 256


3. How many locks are built on the Ohio river? This includes those currently under construction.
Spoiler (click to reveal)
a. 21


4. In Star trek, it’s common knowledge that wearing a red shirt is hazardous to your health. In TOS, how many crew members were killed?
Spoiler (click to reveal)
a. 56

Spoiler (click to reveal)
26 redshirt, 7 blue, 8 yellow, 15 uncertain.


5. From 1981 to 2011 when they were officially retired, How many NASA space shuttle missions flights were there?
Spoiler (click to reveal)
a. 135


6. According to the USDA, if you were to eat 2 pounds of bacon by yourself, how many calories would you have consumed?
Spoiler (click to reveal)
a. 8138.67 Calories


7. What is the run time of all of the Harry Potter movies?
Spoiler (click to reveal)
a. 1179 minutes (19 hours, 39 minutes)


I'm sure someone could find fault in an answer or two. I don't care, it worked for the game and everyone had fun.

I hosted this as an "after dark" adults only version. I made my own select-o-matic and instead of 5000, it was now the select-o-matic 6,900.

For those of you with less imagination, the team names were..
Spoiler (click to reveal)
Cream pies, Brown Eyes, Blue Waffles, Green Cheese, Purple helmets, pearl necklaces, Red Coat hangers, Pink Clams, Black Cocks, and Golden Showers.


Some of the questions read were:
If I were to throw up right now, what would be the most likely object you would find….
The movie I would most like to see made into a porno is….
If I had my worst enemy chained in my basement, I would most likely…..
The most humiliating thing I would be willing to do for $100 million is….
My first love looked like…
The person I would most like to see naked is…..
Last night,I was masturbating to the thought of….
if a statue were to be made in my honor, it would most likely……
I am creating a new childrens TV program called …….

I remember the answer picked for the last one to be "two kids, one cup". Awesome!

Despite the fact that it was close to midnight, we had quite a crowd just watching due to the laughter coming from the back. Young ones had to be escorted away...
Here's one happy winner:

I got to demo a game that isn't out yet. I don't know how much I am allowed to say about it, but it was pretty fun, and i do enjoy exterminating humanity, so that was a bonus. I even got a shirt for winning!

Now was the time to award prizes for completing the kings quest challenge that I started this geeklist off with. here was the chest I made for the occasion:


Here are some of the prizes that were inside. more was added such as a pound of dice, lots of candy, and some more games that I got after this picture. There was enough for 12-15 people to each get a few things and a handful of candy. Most people seemed pretty happy. the first item that went? The copy of pirates cove that was donated by BGG user: HGBlob Thanks a ton!

After that it was time to head home, and it was a great 3 days of games. Big thanks to Keith Arner for the formula 3-D track, and to North Star games for the prize support with Wits and Wagers and Say Anything. Also to HGBlob for their generous contribution to my prize chest!

GASPCon is such a fun time, I hope to see more BGG faces there next year!

GASPcon is host to my yearly Poker Run BattleTech game. The objective is to collect the best 5-card poker hand, by visiting objectives around the board. The best poker hand at the end of the game wins, not the last 'Mech standing. This year we used Clan mechs for the first time, and a pair of 10s won the game.

Played a bomber scenario, American fighters escorting 3x B-25 Mitchells, with Japanese fighters trying to shoot down the bombers. The game was well received, but I think the scenario needs tweeked a bit. It was based off a similar one I played at GENCON, but with German fighters attacking the bombers. The Japanese fighters are not as hardy, and were shot down too easily. I think a simple adjustment of the # of points for the US will help a lot. All in all a great game though, and easy for new players to pick-up.
