Gencon is over. It was my 21st consecutive. This year I returned to running events as I took a year off last gencon. I used that opportunity to totally explore all the nook and crannies on gencon. While it was fun, I must admit, I missed running events.

With that said, I think I may of over done it running 4 events. 4 event is what I have done in the past and it gets your free badge. But after last year, I didn’t get to explore the gaming and exhibition halls as much as I wanted. So I have to strike some sort of balance. So I think I will run only 2 or 3 events next year. Free badge be damned!

As for those events, they all went well. I posted about each on google+.

After running 2 Savage Worlds events I’m sold on the system. I’ve played d20 based games for a long time, so I’m a bit jaded there, so I won’t say it’s better than d20, but if I had a choice of playing a d20 vs SW game today, I would choose the latter.

When I did have time, I visited the gaming and exhibition halls. Below are links to my photos.

Again, didn’t have a ton of time. So I missed a lot. One thing I missed the most was not seeing all the costumes. All my friends told me about the good ones and I was envious.

Other highlights and things that stuck out.

  • Fantasy Flight has a new version of Fortress America on sale. That’s insane!
  • I bought the 2nd edition of the Game of Thrones boardgame. The 2nd edition changes make a great game better.
  • Played Jamaica. It’s a good casual game that I think my wife and older kids might enjoy.
  • My good friend Jay took second placed in the Iron GM challenge.
  • My friends and I hold a gamer olympics every 4 years. I took gold. Rumors are that I was doping, but I got away with it!
  • My events ran in the new hotel downtown. It was great. Only four tables per room and noise level was ideal.

I’m already looking forward to next year! Number 22.
