Ok it's after 1PM, BGGCON has been going for over an hour now, and we still don't have a session report!?

Get on top of it people!

My session report consists of looking at the clock every five minutes to see if it's time to leave work and drive down there yet.

*sigh*

I doubt they'll trickle in until late tonight after everyone gets tired and stumbles to their rooms to post and sleep. I've got to drive from the hotel to my house in Dallas before I can post.

But I do know Chris Brooks and Yehuda Berlinger have a couple of posts up that might hold you over for a couple of hours.

Came back from the first day. I only have five minutes to write this so I am sorry about how brief it is.

Showed up early to help out, and then played.

1. San Juan
Great game, played it many times before

2. Trans Europa
First time. Fun little game. I might pick this one up.

3. Diamant
First time. Fun simple game. Press your luck kind of game.

4. Havoc: 100 Year War
First time. I am going to get my wife to demo this. If she enjoys it, I will buy.

5. Il Principe
First time. Enjoyed the game, but I will need a few more plays to get a handle on it.

6. Goa
First time. I LOVE it! Thanks Scott for teaching us!

7. ChiZo RISING
First time. Enjoyed it, but will need to play more.

8. Robo Rally
First time. Enjoyed it, but not sure it is worth purchasing.

9. Mystery Game where you flick disc on a round wood board.
Hmmm, not sure. My finger hurts


On the prize table I picked up Elfenland and my wife got a full set of ChiZo RISING (4 Started Kits and 8 Booster parks, pre-sorted - one of each card). Wow!

And I just posted my first report here:

http://www.chrisbrooks.org/2005/11/04/BGGCON2005Day1.aspx

So far I rate the show a 9 out of 10. I'd give Derk and Aldie a 10 if they had printed avatars on the vendor badges.

That's a Palm Pilot on the left, and a pink iPod mini on the right. Yes, I've been doing BGTG that long!

Just got in tonight around 8pm. Saw some folks, had a nice dinner, and only played a couple games. Il Principe and ARK, both courtesy of Doug Garrett. I picked Travel Settlers as my door prize pick upon entry, and currently have E&T:Kartenspiel checked out from the game library, hoping for a game early tomorrow.

I recorded a brief BGTG show during my layover at the Denver aiport (!), but that may not get posted until I get back. It depends on a little editing time and wifi Internet access. Also plan to record one All About show with my buddy Greg Pettit while I'm here, and will at least show Derk & Aldie my setup. (I'd still love to record something with them, but I'm not sure they'll have the time.) Will definitely have some sort of post-BGG show later.

I've been fighting with Comcast for two hours. Finally here is my
day one report, with a few pictures. I'll try to get more pictures
tomorrow.
