Thank you to Chris Yaure, Bernie, Saul, the physicians assistant that came from out of the blue, and everyone else who helped me when I had a vertigo incident on Wednesday. I always try to walk some during the convention, but I think I actually walked TOO much the first couple of days, to the point of exhaustion. EVERYTHING in moderation. I walked to Jennie's at least twice and K Mart once or twice before Tuesday. I used to be able to walk everywhere, but as Dtective Murtaugh says, I'm getting too old for this $&*(.
I had a ton of fun playing in the first heat with Greg Crowe and Cody Sandifer. Greg and I were just funny and loud enough to put targets on our backs and get killed together. Our monsters did a "Thelma and Louise" of a building in Tokyo.
FYI: Greg has acted in a pretty impressive list of movie shorts and played (surprisingly enough) the "weird guy" in an episode of VEEP this year. Greg is listed as one of ten up and coming actors (OK it is a list of actors to make it in 2013, but who's rushing) : http://www.imdb.com/list/ls055283055?ref_=nm_rls_5
Here is just hoping Greg will sign a copy of King of Tokyo or Colossal Arena next year. I'll ask now, before he becomes famous. If I do it after, that would just be tacky :b
Do NOT be afraid to go up to people with "willing to teach" signs. Got to play and die in Space Hulk for the second time. Did roll enough sixes to create some cursing, which is always my goal as the Space Narines.
I met Geoff Gambill a couple of years ago, and he introduced me to his friend Zack (I HOPE I'm getting the name right, forgive me if I'm incorrect). We fumbled through the rules: you tube is your friend. I love getting visuals from you tube when learning a game. From there, I played Port Royal and a train game (name?) with Geoff, his wife Joanna and Zack.
The most fun I had was just hanging out and talking with friends I hadn't seen in a while, or even fellow gamers I had just met. I know this is different for everyone, but all I can say is find out what makes you happy at a convention and do it, the same as in life.
