We are very proud to announce that Rich Sommer will be joining us for BGG.CON this year!

Some of you may know Rich as the flirtatious Harry Crane on Mad Men. Others may have seen his excellent "Game Night" segments on Attack of the Show. And the rest of you should know him as our very own:

We're not sure yet how much Rich we'll be getting - still negotiating with agents, directors, unions, etc. (the life and schedule of a Hollywood star is unpredictable), but we're very excited to have him with us!

If you can book Christina Hendricks as well, I'd walk to the Con from Nebraska and mug someone for their pass.

I do need to watch Monday's AotS. I think I DVR'd it. Nobody spoil it for me.

Call me jaded, but he's been a regular attendee at local gamesdays and conventions in LA for a while now...but, hey, if he gets a junket to BGG.con, more power to him.

For some reason I read this as "We're not sure yet how much Rich will be getting" and was confused why you would even discuss his appearance fees with us

I had a guide, a Bedouin man, who called me 'Abu el Banat'. And whenever we'd meet another Bedouin, he'd introduce me as Abu el Banat. And the Bedouin would laugh and laugh and offer me a pint of beer. (cont below)

And I'd go to pay them for the beer and they wouldn't let me. "Abu el Banat" means "Father of daughters." They thought the beer was the least they could do.

Just curious but how hard can it be for a geek to go to a Con? He's not coming to pimp the show or in character. He's showing up as Game Geek.

When November rolls around, he may very well be in the middle of shooting Season 6 of Mad Men, in which case he would be contractually obligated to shoot the TV show instead of attending BGG.con.

TV production schedules are messy and always fluid. Until they get an actual signed paper that says he'll be attending on a certain day(s), he may not be able to show up at all.

If I recall someone rethemed The Resistance with Mad Men characters and lingo, and happily enough, Rich rates it a 9.

Edit: ah yes, here it is: http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/662075/mad-men-retheme

Can we get Rich to play against Eric Summerer in a game of Sommeruner Wars? They both have to be recording the session for their respective broadcasts, of course.

Awesome! I love his taste in games.

Betrayal at House on the Hill, War of the Ring, Agricola, Bottle Imp, No Thanks!, and I was surprised by how obsessed he is with Backgammon. He likes The Resistance too, but unfortunately rates it above Werewolf. Clearly he needs to meet some good mafia players Both great games though.

This was slipped under my front door recently:

"From the awesome Desk of the Great Falconi.
To Rich Sommer c/o BGG.con

Dear Mr. Sommer,

YOU SHALL NEVER DEFEAT ME FOR I AM THE AWESOMENESS THAT IS TOPS THAT BATTLE!

(Please, note, my CAPS lock was NOT on. I hit the shift key for each letter, making them MORE and INTENTIONALLY capitalized!)

Signed,
The Great Falconi."


I hope nothing terrible happens.....
