The First of Many

Gen Con has been an eye-opening experience of complete awesomeness.

This coming week will feature write-ups on the various experiences I had at the Convention and what I learned. I want to share what came up in the seminars on Women in Gaming, the awesome round-table that I attended based on the book Things We Think About Games, the charm and hilarity of Wil Wheaton, and the witty banter of The Guild cast-members. There's so much.

It was so incredibly refreshing to go somewhere and just truly belong. I met a nice mix of wise-crackers that I could, err... crack with and friendly, interesting people to talk to about gaming. Naturally, being gamers the two sets often overlapped. The INT stats were maxed out! That was great.

Sunday morning is our last stop at ICC. Yes, our last raid on ICC IRL. I will sorely miss it.

Once I am back home I can upload all the photos and edit videos for everyone to enjoy.

Finally, there's one thing I know for sure. Gen Con has been one of the best experiences of my life and I am hooked. A true believer who will now make this pilgrimage every year possible has been born.
