A few of us attended GenCon again this year and it was as fun as ever. I registered a bit late this year but smartly arrived a day early to pick up my badge and tickets. Avoiding the huge will call line Thursday morning allowed me to join the mad rush when the Exhibit Hall opened up. I definitely did a lot of shopping this time but also managed to play some games each of the four days I attended.
As a diversified gamer, Gencon is a mixed blessing. Seeing all the awesome on display is a bit much and I injulged quite a bit this year. So even with a backlog of hobby projects at home I added yet more things on the "to do" list for many of my favorite games.
