Gencon 2015 Event Registration-- It Still Needs Some Work

Gencon 2015 Event Registration– It Still Needs Some Work

My clan of loyal tabletop gamers takes Gencon event registration very seriously because we collectively feel that you really only have one shot to get the events you really want to play. Sure, you can show up and still have a good time, but that is a crap shoot at best and often precludes attending […]

Gencon 2015 Hotel Registration--The Housing Hunger Games

Gencon 2015 Hotel Registration–The Housing Hunger Games

Every year my cohorts and I stand by, waiting for the nanosecond that the Gencon reservation system allows us to book rooms. We all press the button and surge forth to fight off the hordes of gamers trying to get in the system first and score prime hotels. Every year, we do really well and […]

The Sound of Carnage--Ambient Music for Role-Playing Games

The Sound of Carnage–Ambient Music for Role-Playing Games

A couple of companies at Gencon had sound effect software/music on offer specifically for role-playing games. Sound effects are something I never tried on my RPG table, so I thought I should check out two Gencon offerings and one source that I found independently.

Iron GM at Gencon 2013– A Review and a Bit of a Rant

I lost Iron GM.  Let me get the suspense out of the way immediately.  There is no surprise ending here, just my thoughts on the event, how it runs and how it might be improved (see the rant section at the bottom of the post.)  This is a fairly detailed description of the event because […]

Gen Con 2013 Report–The Games We Played

Gen Con 2013 is over! I say that with a heavy heart because this is one of the best Gen Cons I attended.  I played a multitude of games, did battle at Iron GM and haunted the vendor area looking for ways to spend my hard earned money.  This is my first report of what […]
