Stage one...

Know you are already crazy, and you plan to buy everything insight! So you pack accordingly!



Then you let the purchases begin until you end up with an endless pile of games!



Then you pack all of your glory for the voyage home!



My first trip to Gencon with my wife, and I didn't hold anything back!!!

HF! Lots of stuff. The very first picture had me laughing, because the small picture looks like you just packed a couple rolls of TP. I'd say that would have for sure been the "essentials".

Check out Clockwork Wars. It's a pretty darn good dudes on a hex map Euro'ish steampunk game. Quick and fun.

We totally packed TP. The convention only provided sandpaper.

Congrats on all the games!

Oh hell no lol. There was a duffle bag packed in suitcase that was also used for some games. Then lots of the small ones went into carry ons! I should have taken more pictures, but we were scrambling this morning to get to the airport. Was totally freaking out that my suitcase would be too heavy! Hit the scale at 49.5lbs!!!! LMAO whistle

A buddy of mine bought so many games at GenCon, he had to go out and purchase another suitcase!

Looks like you had fun, next year will be my first time...

My friend brought a suitcase full of stuff to sell and end up carrying a suitcase of my purchases back with him.

Pete (found that pretty hilarious)

Looks like a fine time was had by all. Have never been to Gencon but I am thinking of attending next year if all goes well in my current life which is always taking a risk! I will be attending Pacificon this year which I haven't attended in 20 years but then again I haven't attended any conventions in 20 years. So this will be interesting.
