Ha!

As soon as I got home from BGG.Con 2012, I started planning out my 2013 Con.

It will be my 5th Con, and certainly my best.

Can't wait! See you all there!

My wife and I live about 10 to 15 miles from the hotel, but for convenience and fun thought about getting a room this year. It was like $500 for all the days I think! Is that what y'all pay?! Plus con fees? Hats off if so, it's a great time and I'm glad you can make it! It's crazy how expensive it is.

Funny. I do not consider it expensive at all. I get a great deal of value and fun out of the event so the FUN to COST ratio is superb in my books.

The hotel room lets you:

1) Hop out of bed, into the shower, and down to the gaming with the bare minimum amount of commute time.
2) Take a mid-afternoon nap.
3) Make a cup of post-nap coffee.
4) Stay up WAY past bedtime, then play "just one more game" and not worry about driving when you really shouldn't be operating a motor vehicle.
5) Handle...biological processes...in peace.
6) Get 15 minutes of quiet time whenever you need it.
7) Make the convention into a true vacation.

But I understand the money issue is critical for some. If you *can* find a way to swing it, though, I've found that it increases enjoyment of a convention tremendously.

Split a room 2 ways = $55 a night.

Split a room 4 ways = $27.50 a night.

Either way, it's a pretty good deal when you consider time lost commuting to and from the hotel.

It was easier in a Starwood hotel, since we have a lot of points with them. At the Hyatt it's a bit pricier. Still better than having to drive late at night.

It is $500 for all days, and it is well worth it, especially when you work it to share it and split the cost. Highly, highly recommended.

Heck, split it eight ways and sleep in shifts! There's gaming going on at all hours of the day and night.
