Thanks to Aldie and the many others who put together a great convention! I'm back home now, exhausted, and already looking forward to next year.

It was nice to meet you on Sun at the Queen's Gambit game. You'll have to ask Koldfoot about it.

My first con ever and I gotta say it totally exceeded my expectations. Well organized, nice hotel, friendly people, and the most excellent game library I could have imagined. I'll be back!

Thanks BGG!

(Rob, I hope you finally found Koldfoot.)

And thank you for explaining Queen's Gambit to me on Friday! I got my butt handed to me but it was still such a blast. 3 ninja Jar-Jars took out 2 destroyer droids on the very first turn which set the tone of the game.

The thing about learning new games was that I could handle them being explained, but I was too sleep deprived to read and retain anything. Great time!

Thank you everyone who helped! The con was fantastic!

This year's BGG.con was definitely awesome! I loved meeting everyone and trying out games I never had access to before. The math trade was great, the flea market was great, the library was well stocked.

My only complaint was that the hotel (or maybe it was just Dallas) made my lips chap brutally after the first day. I just found that really odd. It wasn't just me as some of my friends had the same problem. kiss

I would add my appreciation to everyone involved with bringing this about!

I am surprised that the game room didn't have more drool on the floor. The sheer number of games was amazing!

My wife and I will definitely be returning next year.

Yeah, we crossed paths a number of times. But every time, one of us was involved in another game.

Re: TEAM AWESOME!!!!!1
Everything was fabulous, of course, except I thought I had ordered more hours in the day!

The Game Show and the Treasure Hunt were well organized and run. Thanks for all that worked on those.

1st place after 1/3 of the game - closer to last at the end,

- Miguel (OR), Paul (CA), Tricia (TX), and Bill (TX)
(TEAM AWESOME!!!!!1)
