That Was The Gen Con That Was

With all the hullaballoo that accompanies preparing for Gen Con each year, and the whirlwind insanity (not to mention physical pain) that often punctuates the Best Four Days in Gaming, it’s funny that the convention always seems to be over too quickly . . . and I spend the following week mulling over all the things I DIDN’T get to, and how I’ll do it all BETTER next year.

But when the dust settles, the REASON I go back year after year is that no matter how I “mess it up,” Gen Con is ALWAYS a ton of fun. I get to see friends from all over the country—all over the WORLD, really. I get to play new games and make new friends. And I get to spend a long weekend rubbing elbows with some of the nicest, smartest, most creative people I’ve ever known. Indeed, THAT’S what this past Gen Con was like again.

This year, my BIG thanks go out to:

* Erik Bauer of Gaming Paper for not only being among the nicest people in the industry, but for all his support and generosity at the con AND all year ’round.

* Marc Tassin who runs the Gen Con Writer’s Symposium for inviting me to take part in that convention within a convention. I hope I aquitted myself well enough that I can get invited again in future years.

* Owen K.C. Stephens, y’know, just because he’s my friend and business partner, and because seeing and talking about the show with him ALWAYS gives me insights I’d never have come up with on my own.

* And finally to the staff and volunteers of Gen Con, LLC, who every year put together a show that is worthy of the tag line “the Best Four Days in Gaming”! Good job, folks! Looking forward to 2016!
