While not a first timer per-say, this year is the first year I'll be a full attendee and not at work all week! My wife won't join me until Friday. I'll be orphaned until then so I'll try to attend the meetup. laugh

Whatever you do, don't fall for the ole "Open that game box. Go ahead! Do it!" gag.

And then don't fall for the ole "Naw, open THIS game box instead!" gag.


I'll be there as a first timer.

It's pretty much a BGG.CON 101 session. I finally put together a presentation a few years ago, so we'll be showing slides with pictures of people who are good to know, who to look for if you have questions, and we'll try to answer those questions before you even know you had them!

Nikki nailed it. This is a totally optional informative presentation that Nikki gives, just to help anyone who may be a bit shy or simply overwhelmed by the incredible awesomeness that is BGG.CON.

Excellent! Grateful this meetup exists! It's my first BGG.CON and I must admit I'm a tad intimidated. So this should help!

Sounds like it was designed just for me. Thanks for doing this, Nikki. I'll be there!

Then find yourself a Team Geek member in a jersey and ask questions. That's what we're there for!
