Hey Gamers! I hope you all had an amazing weekend - I know I did! Another Pax Unplugged has concluded and once again I had a ton of fun. From playing new games to meeting new people, and of course buying loads of games from my wishlist, it was a great time! This year was the first year I met with a few publishers, gave out some business cards, and now have a bunch of games on the soon-to-review list (so keep an eye out for those!) Check out below for some fun things I talked to people about and con photos! If you'd rather check out what I played all week and see those photos click here!
Hello Gamers! As you may or may not know, PAX Unplugged is coming up quick! For those of you going, I'M SUPER EXCITED TO SEE YOU ALL; SAY HI IF YOU SEE ME! (She said in a definitely not-crazy scream. Cause she's not crazy, and definitely doesn't awkwardly speak in the 3rd person before finally getting back to the point).
For all you first-timers, and maybe some of you bad-packers, I've made a quick survival checklist to help you make sure you've got what you need to be prepared, hopefully avoid con crud, and most of all, have a great time!
Let's check it out! :D
Howdy Ho, Gamers! This week will also include a short recap of the Extra Life 24 Hours of Gaming Event I went to this past weekend, so if you're only interested in plays/reactions/pics, just skip down to the bottom! Thanks for reading and get ready for a loooooooong list!
Happy Sunday, Gamers!
As you can probably guess, I try to go to as many board game events as I can because, well, I like games, duh. But since travel and hotels are expensive, and we don't live super close to most things, we usually do one big con (PAXU) and one small con (G2S) a year, plus a few FLGS game nights/small events. But this weekend we got to try out ReUnity Games!
It was a one-day event in Danvers, MA, revamp of Unity Games, hosted by out G2S friends who are killer at planning cons, and it was great! It wasn't too crowded, so there was plenty of room to sit, play, browse, and move about, and as usual people were super generous with bringing games for others to enjoy, so there was a plethora of things to choose from! There was also a flea market/auction hosted on BGG which got us some neat finds for great prices, and a silent auction to donate some money to charity with some great packages to bid on! I got to try a bunch of new things, see a lot of great people, and have an awesome day of nothing but gaming. (Plus, it was only 15 minutes from a Cheesecake Factory, so I also got cheesecake <3) Big thanks to the hosts! Keep on making awesome things happen, cause you guys are great at it!
Click below to see some pics (check back tomorrow in my Weekly Plays post for ratings and more!) and get all the links you might need to learn more about this great group and their events, so you can join in too! Hope to see you at G2S in March!
What's up, Gamers?
It's that time of year again! For those of us who can't afford/can't attend/don't want to attend big ol' Gen Con, we are participating in GenCan't!
This year I've had a lot going on, so I'm keeping it small scale, just me and my husband, doing our own thing for a bit, probably playing some new games we picked up, and maybe revisiting that Gloomhaven scenario we still haven't finished. I did customize our badges a little bit, and pulled out my old "Welcome" sign, but I passed on the cookies and big get-togethers this year.
I did want to share one more thing in this small preview post though! I wanted to post the link to my roll-and-write game Roller Space that I submitted to the GenCan't design contest. It's still pretty rough, but I had a lot of fun designing and submitting it, so I wanted to put it out there in case anyone wanted to give it a go!
For those of you attending Gen Con, have a great time! For those of you partaking in GenCan't with me, let's rock and roll, fam! Tweet & Insta pics of what you're playing, cause I'll be doing the same! :D
