Kids and I arrived at the resort this afternoon. Thought there was a chance I'd be the first from WBC here.

Nope. Ken's in the Stag room hard at work, it looks to my eyes like he's nearly got everything set up already.

So what's taking the rest of you so long?

I can't leave for WBC until Saturday morning at the earliest, but I still hope to be there in time for a 4PM Small World heat.

Safe travels! I visited Morocco with my family for a couple weeks in December and had a wonderful time there. Hope you enjoy the WBC!

I don't get home until the 8th, so you have competition.

Scott - please wear the kids out at the recreation Seven Springs has to offer so the rest of us have a chance against them once the gaming begins.

Target departure time is 5:15 PM Friday, with a stop for dinner at Andalusia in Carlyle. 53 games are on the dining room table - I am afraid we may have to leave a few behind.

The best 9 days of the year are almost here!

We went all over the country on a tour...Casablanca, Rabat, Fez, through Atlas Mountains to Erfoud, Camel ride on Sahara with overnight stay on Christmas Eve in tent ala Arabian Nights style, Ait Ben Haddou, Essaouira, and Marrakech. It was a once in a lifetime trip for my family. We found the culture, climate, cuisine not to mention the wonderful people we met along the way to be exceptional and enriched our experience. 😊

See you tomorrow Scott...started boardgaming yet or just partaking in the resort's amenities? If playing, what spaces will be available on Friday?

We just doing all the resort stuff last two days. I bowled about ten games today, my back is killing me.

Finally the boys and I played a game tonight. We found a table in the Alpine Room to play on. But it wasn't easy. All the usual rooms locked up. Probly things loosen up tomorrow as gamers start to arrive?

WBC is NOT invitation only. Everyone is invited. You don't even need to be experienced in the games--though pay attention to the Class of an event (A, B, or C). A Level events don't have a demo. You should know the rules when you show up to play. B Level events have a demo, which you should attend if you don't know the rules. The rules will not be taught during the event. C Level events may have a demo, but rules will also be taught during the event.

You will also find open gaming and demonstrations and vendors and an auction and more.

My first trip to WBC I hadn't even heard of these games. I just went on a whim, cuz kids are free and thought it would be a neat thing for them to try. By the end of the first day, I was attending demos and playing games myself.

If you're in the area, there is still time to plan a one or two day trip (Friday/Saturday is great too). If not, make plans for next year!

Loved all of that except the last sentence....can't believe that one one is a tournament event. See you later and safe travels!

How many times you get to say the first thing you're going to at a game convention is a love letter?

Trying to herd the sleepy kids into the car this morning, hoping I get out in time to make it for Love Letter. Right now chances appear to be about 50/50
