I attended my first convention at ConConn 2015 and what a fun time it was. I had the chance to play a lot of games and meet many people. I was a little worried going in as I didn't know what to expect. I'm a pretty outgoing person -- it's part of my job, too -- but I always wonder about things like this. On a good note, I was going with several people I usually game with. But I also knew I needed to feel my way around and see what it was all about.

I was shocked at how easy it was to open game. I enjoyed the slots I was in as I thought there were some great teachers for games. Everybody has a different style when it comes to teaching games, so it was interesting to see that, too.

The best part was playing so many games. Of the games I played, I only had previously played one, so it was fun to learn more games.

I also really liked being able to meet so many designers, play-test a few games, and see how designers think about games. It's quite a process, so it's cool to see it from their eyes.

This Con was really fun and I look forward to attending in future years. I decided to do a GeekList on this so I could keep track of what I did this year, as compared to future years (same with the "purchased" GeekList I am working on).

I had been wanting to play this game for a long time, so one of the people I went with had it and we played it before the Con officially opened. We met somebody wandering around who joined us, so it was cool to meet some people right off the bat. Fun game. Wouldn't mind adding it to my collection.

My first slot was Alchemists, a game I had played before. Good game. The teacher was solid and the game went pretty well. It was interesting to watch people and how they approached the game. Fun times.

A little open gaming between sessions. Interesting game. A lot going on. Took me a few turns to get a feel for it. The person who runs our game nights bought it, so I'm sure it will be brought out at some point.

I had backed this before going to ConnCon, knowing it was a slot I signed up for. I wanted to make sure it was a game I felt I needed to add to my collection. I am still backing it. It was a fun and fast game. Definitely a filler game or something, but worth breaking out and playing. Fun times.

Now known as The Networks.

Had the chance to play this game with the designer leading it. Really fun game. He said he is changing the name of it so it's not so confusing. I liked the idea behind the game and definitely will look to back it when it eventually gets to Kickstarter.

Again, had the chance to play the game with the designer, which made it a heap of fun. I enjoyed the dynamic of this game. I'm not sure how often it would make it into a play rotation, but it's something worth having on hand in case you have a big group. Had a lot of laughs with it and ended up backing it with its current Kickstarter.

Final play of three games with the designer, again, teaching us. I'm a word person and have worked in PR and newspapers. But this game is tough! Definitely fun and makes you think on your feet.

I have this pre-ordered, so I was excited to play it -- especially at a Con. We had a really big group for a late-night go and played it twice. Definitely a lot of fun. I'll probably be doing a session report on this one (and several others from the con).

One of my favorite games played during ConnCon. Open gaming sessions, but it was really fun to give it a go and play. If you are a wrestling fan, it's definitely more fun I think. I got the chance to play it four times and had a blast each time!

This was one of the games I was looking forward to the most and I now plan on adding it to my personal collection at some point. It truly was fantastic. I liked the whole aspect of the game and am glad I had the chance to play it. I wish I had gotten another play on it during some open gaming, though.

This was taught to us by the designer, so fun in that regard. A quick, simple, and fun game. Well worth having around as a filler or a quick play.

Another game I had really looked forward to playing. The mechanics were pretty simple and I think there are different ways to attack the game, for sure. I liked it well enough, but not sure if I'd ever own it. I would like to give it a go again sometime.

Somebody had the PNP version and being it was a game I've backed on Kickstarter, I wanted to give it a play. Fun and quick. Baseball is my favorite sport, though, so it's something I enjoyed in that respect, too.

This was fun. We played with two players, but several people told me that it's best played with three players, so I'll look forward to trying it that way.

I was looking forward to this one. Not bad, but parts of it seemed flat to me. Looking back, I'd like to try it again now that I understand the dynamics a bit more. But I'm somewhat in the middle on this game.

A friend had won this in an auction, so we ended up playing a four-player game. Not too bad. I liked how it was done. The theme isn't something I normally would jump for, but I'd play it again.

This game had a lot going on in it. I didn't do too bad with it, but I think it's a game where you need to play it a bit more to really get a feel for it. We were at least halfway done before I truly got rolling some.

One of my favorites -- if not my favorite -- of the weekend. I am a homebrewer, so I like the beer games. I love Brew Crafters. This game is right up there. I had also won it in an auction, so I'm happy I had the chance to play it here. One of my wins on the weekend, too.

This was a fun game. Ended Saturday with it. We had a three-player game and I think it went well. I tied, but lost on the tiebreaker. Fun game and would be one I'd consider adding to my collection. Quick game, too.
