Picking up our badges on Wednesday night took a little while as the staff apparently told Pat that they did not open until 6 when he showed up at 5, so he went back to setting up the booth and planned on coming back at 6:30. Yet when we checked out the game master HQ at 5:10 the line was all the way down the hall and around the corner. However by the time Pat got there around 6:30 there was almost no line - so he (at least) didn't have to wait long at all.
This year (as opposed to last) we managed to convince the venue staff to actually let us in on Wednesday night to set up - since we had an 8 am game on Thursday. My minions (well one of them, Jon) helped me bring in the terrain and get it set up ahead of time. The location for our Learn To Play events was great - we were actually on the main walk way through the main gaming hall - so got a ton of interested people stopping and checking out the games.

My son Jon helped me run the four sessions on Thursday, and Kara and Amy took over for the 11 am and 2 pm sessions on Friday to give me a break to go and explore (i.e. spend money at) the vendor hall.

Thus the game ended in a tie - so team Instinct got the win!

Amazingly enough I even had a bit of my voice left afterward.
So now is time to start planning for next year!
Because it is all fun and games . . .
