Last week was really a great week of vacation for me.

On Sunday friends of mine flew down from Calgary, Canada to my new home in Houston, Texas.

We spent Monday touring around and visiting some of the sights in the area, Tuesday doing some shopping. There was some light gaming, but the focus was on socializing, eating good food and enjoying the company.

Wednesday we drove up to Dallas, met up with some other friends that flew in directly from Canada and the gaming magic began....

We all played a lot of games, met a lot of good folks, introduced my friends from Canada with some of my new friends from Houston, ate a lot of good food and had a great time. My sincere thank you goes out to all those who volunteered and worked to put together BGG-Con. I had a fantastic time.

Sunday my friends flew out directly back to Canada and I drove back home to Houston. The further I drove from the convention site the faster the magic faded and the faster "reality" crept into focus.

This morning, at work with a desk full of items forgotten for a week, it now seems almost like a dream. I really hope to have that same dream again next year.

Again, Thank You Very Much.

Peace

It was nice meeting you Brent even if it was while standing in the horrible Thoughthammer line for an hour and a half. Thanks for teaching Hansa Teutonica.

I have a general saying about vacations, and the return from BGG is no different.

"Rentry is hell."

Ditto! One can party harder when one can count on a full week to recuperate.

Hey Brent,

Karen and I (the Canadians) had a great time - thanks so much for the southern hospitality! Thanks also to your Houston gaming buddies, especially Marty, for inviting us to dinner on Saturday night.

It was good meeting you and that Thoughthammer line up was the only black spot in an otherwise flawless Con. Hopefully they learn from that and do not repeat the mistake next year. Because the rest was so good I had largely put that out of my mind.

You are most welcome for the Hansa Teutonic game. I think that game is a lot more subtle than folks might think on a first play. There is plenty of Passive Agression for those who are willing to play that way.

Good meeting you as well!

Peace
