I was invited to Gen Con by the generous chaps at Monolith. To demonstrate Mythic Battles: Pantheon where Greek God wage war on each other. Batman: Gotham City Chronicles, re-enacting the greatest moment from the na-nah na-nah na-nah na-nah Batman comic books. And also present their next big Kickstarter, Claustrophobia 1643.
Our team of four were kept on our toes from dusk till dawn as the booth filled up. Which is great because it would make the longest day fly by. Players seem to really enjoy their experience and gave positive feedback.

Apart from spending the trading days with a great team of guys (David, Ken and Matt...a real pleasure...let's do it again) I got to have wonderful evening wondering in the city heat, looking for somewhere to play. And there were plenty of places to play. All hotels were hot shot places to find whole areas designated to playing games.
Board Game Geek hosted a large room in one of them. Everywhere I looked, there was someone I knew. Lance Myxter, Joel Eddy, Rodney Smith and a bucket load of others (sorry if I forgot you). Played a few game with the shiny Keith Collins and attentive Forest Bower and the golden voice charmer Anthony Racano .
We played games like Gizmos, Dinousaur Tea Party and I presented an up and coming game, Badass Force.
Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. But I will always look on the bright side of life as this was a great big convention that holds many memory's. Opening the door of new games to gamers and meeting strangers, fans and people I respect, is something that will stay with. As well as rest in this matrix.
