It's November!!!

That means, BGG Con is almost here.

It's that magical time of year when I'll be seeing some of you in person and actually asking some of you to play a game with me.

If you're a little reluctant to play a game with me, I really can't blame you. There's a lot that can go wrong during a game. You are committing to spend an hour or so with a person who you really don't know anything about.

In an attempt to ease your mind a little, I've listed a few things I bring to the table. It's my Good Gaming Partner Pledge. I've given this a couple of hours worth of thought, but there's a chance that I've missed something.

If there's something else I need to do to before you're willing to play with me, let me know. I'm always open to suggestions.

I Play Fast



Well, I don't play as fast as Those guys, but I won't be the guy you're always waiting on.

I assume I'm never going to figure out the optimal move, so I don't waste a lot of time worrying about it.

I won't complain when things don't go my way



I never end a game angry. I also never Start a game angry or Middle a game angry.

I play happy.

As an added bonus, I promise not to wear short shorts.

I'll Play Almost Anything



Sure I spend most of my time in the hot games room, but I'm open to just about any game in the library, so if you need someone for anything from fillers to monsters, track me down.

I Shower Almost Every Morning



Sure, the hotel pool will do the trick in a pinch, but I just love those tiny bars of soap in the hotel room.

I Always Clean Up After Myself



I love bagging components.

I love it so much, that they know me by name at the container store. I never leave the table until the game is put away properly.

(or set up properly If we're in the Hot Game Room.)

I Wear My Badge where you can Read it.



My badge always faces forward. I don't use the Lanyard they give you. Those things are made of cat gut and they always land backwards.

You see, I want to play with You (whoever you are). I enjoy playing with anyone, but it's especially fun to play with people I recognize from online.

Badges are a big part of that.

I think Mel Gibson said it best in Maverick:

I'm not looking to line up a lot of games in advance. I just want to run into you at the con. If we all wear our badges right side out, it should be easy.

So if you see me wandering around the Convention, say Hi.

Here's what I look like. If you post a picture (or wear your badge right), I'll keep an eye out for you.



Note: At the con, I'll be wearing Tie Dye and probably glasses.

OK, Tim. If you insist . . .
I won't snap the cards

Because, I'll need them later for Card Ninja.



My favorite part is where he says, "I don't like wasting fruit". No concern for the cards at all.
