A GenCon Schedule Part 2

So when it comes to the weekend at Gen Con I suspect I will be starting to have Con fatigue so figure best to play it safer with the games I’m playing and keep it a bit more flexible to give me a chance to just browse and wander the corridors a bit.  Also I’d like to think some socialising will be part of the experience!

Saturday
Game
Format
Time / Slot
Price
Bang! The Bullet
Board Game
9am to 10am
$2
Dread Curse
Board Game
1pm to 3pm
$2
Dresden Files: Headless Coasts - Legends of the South
RPG
5pm to 9pm
$8

Bang! Is a fun game even if the rules read like they’ve been translated from Italian to English by Google Translate of 5 years ago…
Dread Curse is a game I’ve been looking to pick up as it’s suitable for up to 8 players.
Dresden Files intrigues me.  Never read the books but have “read” the audio books and watched some of the TV show.  The main reason to try this out at GenCon though would have been to experience playing more FATE which I just don’t know enough about.

Sunday
Game
Format
Time / Slot
Price
Playtest a Board, Card, Role Playing or Story Game
Workshop
8am to 10am
FREE
Inside Tabletop
Seminar
2pm to 4pm
FREE

Playtesting is something I’m intrigued by and whilst some of the games on offer might not be that great there will likely be a few gems in the mix that I’d be interested in trying out.
The Inside Tabletop seminar would have been a great thing just to sit through an d soak in the enthusiasm for the hobby that it most likely would have generated.

So that completes the scheduled events.  I’m not sure whether the con goes into complete wind down at this point or whether there’s still “stuff to do”.  I suspect that there is still stuff to do although I also suspect that the demo teams, traders and manufacturers will have started their process of packing up.

What this does though is gives me an opportunity to look back at the event and also review all the purchases I will no doubt have made over the weekend.  It also means I can go back to my apartment/hotel/whatever and just relax ahead of the long journey home.
