So ladies, who is going? I'm still trying to figure out if I can get the hell out of dodge (i.e., time off from my unpredictable job) to get there. I think we need at least a few games together while there.

As a side note, does anyone know if tickets are transferable? I've got an extra ticket that I doubt Felix will be able to use...

I'll be there Sue and we definitely need to play some games. I think there is a waiting list if you are trying to get rid of one of your tickets, so they must be transferrable.

Kathy, it's in November in Dallas, you really should consider going, it's the best gaming con I've ever been to, people are so friendly and it's great to meet people in person.

Thanks for the info, Sandy, but I'll have to take a pass this year. Just got back from a cruise so it's not going to happen. Maybe next year!

Have fun!

I didn't know any one the first time I went in 2007 and it was a bit intimidating but that only lasted a short time. Believe me, you will know people when you get the there, it will just be the first time you've met them face to face.

Based on your microbadges it looks like we should grab a beer together too!

I hope you ladies have a lot of fun! This year was suppose to be my year. I had left my job of 2 years for a better paying closer job and that did not work out

And now I'm in a great job! (after being unemployed for a month) Awesome benefits but it's still part time and I'm still catching up to my bills.


I wish and well, now I can save for next year.


Take lots of awesome pictures ladies!

If it isn't sold out next summer, I might make the Dice Tower Convention.

I grew up in Orlando and have some family there I need to see in the next year or two. Next summer might be the right time. But I am not sure enough to buy tickets at this point.

I now have tickets and a room (although it's not in the Hyatt, blah, but anyway). I'm hoping I won't have to cancel due yet another family emergency.

So tentatively will be there Thurs-Sat.

In for beer. I'll look at the geek list and post.

My father is doing very poorly so BGG is likely out. I am going to be spending most of next month in Detroit instead of Dallas.


Hopefully next year. cry

soblue I was really hoping you'd make it. Don't forget to take care of yourself in there too and hang in there.

I'm hoping my trip doesn't meet the same fate. We are on hospitalization number 3 of this year for my dad, but thankfully, I'm only anticipating a couple of weeks of PT this time out. So right now, I'm leaving my plans in place and hoping that there is relatively smooth sailing for mid-November.
