Unfortunately, Dice Hate Me Games will not be at GenCon this year. We will be at Origins and WBC, though. Will you be at either of those?

I will be at Origins (since it's only about 25-30 minutes from the house). Work schedule will dictate what days, but I'll definitely make it a point to meet up with anyone there. Have to get my copy of Carnival (and VivaJava) signed by the creators.

As for GenCon, I am hoping that Gary Games will want me to work in their booth again. Barring that I am trying to save money for gas, games, and lodging. Don't suppose anyone would want to split a room with a polite, hygienic 30/M ?

Ha! I love how "Ameritrash" and "Brews" are always in the same sentence, Steve. You and I, sir, would get along smashingly.

How you know you've been reading too much about UnPub2.

When I read "brews," I originally thought it referred to homebrews/prototypes. blush

If any of you have cars, check out Columbus Brewing Company about 10-15 minutes from the Convention center, they have some good craft brews.

Why, hello there, Columbus Brewing Company, and welcome to my "Life List".

Thanks for the tip, Eric! Does the CBC do a good lunch?

Yes, yes they do.

http://www.columbusbrewingco.com/pdf/CBC%20Lunch.pdf

A little pricey for what is essentially bar/pub food, but it's done well.


There's also the North Market and the Elevator within walking distance if you don't have reliable transportation. The Elevator does craft beers too (try the Bleeding Buckeye) and is one of the few places in the Midwest with a Liquid Nitrogen cooling system to keep the beer cold.

Sorry... you got the chef in me going. Lemme know if you want/need any more information.

Scotty's might be a TAD far from Columbus :-P

but yes, the Long Fang Ale they had on tap last year specifically for GenCon was AMAZING.

Ha! thank you Larry. I was trying to figure out what in the world this guy was talking about. I drink a lot of beer in downtown Indy and have never heard of the places mentioned. Now I get it, Columbus Ohio.

Quotes from the round table 2010 and 2011 Cons

"I don't know what your trying to tell me"

"Your ruining my buzz .... "

"Guys enough" followed by silence...devil

Comparing Tim to a body part gulp

"We can eat that" at Scotty's Brew house reffering to the big ass

lucy, bugle blazin’ blues,
backyard bar-b-q, atomic
mo’fo’ or midwest style.
this item does not come
with a side. 36
with every big ass
burger, receive a
“member’s only” t-shirt. or durring GenCon a Scotty brewhouse limited six sided die and if you finish it you get a 2nd.
FYI 3 of us got two dice.

I'll be at GenCon for sure. I'm still figuring out Origins. If I do go to Origins, it'll just be for Friday night/Saturday.

I'd like to propose a meetup Friday night of GenCon in the Embassy Suites lobby, which is one of my main hangouts. Who's up for it?

I've been known to hang.

As we get closer to the big date, we need to compile and organize this forum thread so people have a better idea where people will be and when so they can take action to avoid those places as need be.

Awww...LUCKY!

I shared Dragon Valley with my oldest little geek when I first found out about it and he started jumping up and down! Sadly, never got a chance to get a copy. Looking forward to your review, Larry!

I'm trying to organize a list of vendors/designers that will be at Origins and GenCon. As I get a larger number, I'll put it up on the website and then link it here if that's ok.
