GenCon Diaries: Intro

I just returned from an amazing 4 days in Indianapolis, which is where GenCon 2012 was held. You probably know what GenCon is if you're on this site, but if you don't, it's the biggest board game convention in the United States. I'm not being hyperbolic when I say it was four of the best days of my life.

Over the next week or so I'm going to be rolling out a series of posts I'm tagging as GenCon Diaries. I'm going to write about the awesome folks I met and the hilarious stories that emerged. I'm going to write about testing my new game, Empire Reborn, the feedback I received, and what it was like to play with a potential publisher. I'm going to write about demoing my first game, Farmageddon, the up and coming FORCES in this business, and generally, tell a story of these four days.

Some of these posts will be sappy and fit for Lifetime movies. Some will be more akin to my typical philosophical posts. Some will hopefully be funny.

As always, I want you to feel free to contribute to this story. I love guest columns and I am just one of many perspectives. Plus, I was chained to a table for about 14 hours a day.


That'll do!

I can honestly say if someone worked harder than you did I don't know who it was. Great job roomie, I had a blast! I wish I'd have gotten a few more games of Farmageddon in.

Grant ... when you get Empire Reborn published -- and you will, because it's awesome -- could you have it re-titled as "Matt Worden's Empire Reborn?" ... not because I deserve any credit ... I just want my name on a game like that!! :-)

Good luck with the post-con changes and the continued development of that one.

For the second edition I'll have it published as "Matt Worden's Pastry and Bacon Conflict: The Emergence of the Sugary Magistrate."
