It was so quick. Almost like I wasn't there. I don't think I played one game the whole time!

Jeremy, I'm not sure if you're kidding or not (humor can be hard to "get" over the Internet), but BGG.CON doesn't start until tomorrow. The reports and pictures should start flooding in after Sunday (November 12) when the convention is over.

The convention was great, and not just because deitass and I came back with ridiculous amounts of swag. Great games and great people for almost 4 days... somehow, it felt too short.

This was my first gaming convention ever and it was great!

The main hotel was really nice. There were so many games to choose from and I had a great time playing with people I'd never met! Now if I'm ever traveling in the U.S., I'll have people I could game with all across the states!

To me, the special events were the best part of the trip: Dave Arnott's Puzzle/Treasure Hunt and the game show put on by Peter Sarrett. Both were REALLY fun and the type of thing that you can't do at home!

Also, I got to play Werewolf which was really fun. I slept about 6 hours on Thursday night, 5 hours on Friday night and then just stayed up all night on Saturday and slept on the plane on the way home.

It was a TON of fun and I can't wait til next year's con!

I really, really enjoyed it, it was great to meet a lot of new people and game with them, meet some people I already knew, and get to see the insanely huge game library. It was incredibly well organized from what I saw and I'd like to thank all the people who were working behind the scenes so that everyone could show up and have a great time.

Sorry about that. At the time it was the most recent BGG.Con I'd been to.

Thanks for updating the link

I had a friggen' blast.

Truly a great time and I met so many wonderful people. A fantastic time that pumped me up, invigorated me, and got me totally relaxed at the same time.

I loved playing and I loved meeting everyone.

All I can say is: it went by much to fast.

I agree with everyone else, it was a great time. A lot of great games and super friendly people.
