Like last year, Gen Con was a terrific experience !
Thanks to all the players who came by during my signing sessions (I experienced my first love declaration from a fan… well… with her husband and kid just beside her but geez). The 300 pre-release copies of Samurai Spirit sold out quickly (but I think the first victories may wait a little more :p I told you already, the game is kind if hardcore !)
I showed the prototype of the Takenoko‘s expansion to the publishers and they liked it so fingers crossed ! More information on this project to come… 7 Wonders Babel was presented to the reviewers and to the public. Beside working, I only played a few games (Thanks to Mike Selinger for the very pleasant game of Unspeakable Words) and only one « not mine » prototype : Conan by Frédéric Henry and to be published by Monolith in 2015. I really enjoyed this first play even if I lost poorly as an evil game-master :D
I managed to miss Naïade (Tokaido, Seasons…) and Merry from Portal Publishing (truly sorry Merry !). I brought home : DoomTown, Sail to India, some Magic cards (thanks Joshua, you’re my man !), Win-Lose-Banana, Blood Bowl Team Manager Foul Play.
Damn, I really hope I can attend next year’s edition !
Have fun playing.
