Tomorrow Morning I’ll be on my way to a weekend of Gaming Goodness. Gamefest South in Chattanooga! Since I’m not going to BGG.con and most of September, October, and November will leave me focused on SEC Football and Marathon Training. This will likely be it for me in the Fall Con Schedule.
I had small dreams of hitting a regional type con on the west coast in the Fall this year, I like regional cons for the size and mingling that happen more than the big BGG.con, Origins, Gen Con, etc type gaming cons. Perhaps it’s just me: but the people I’m playing with are just as important as the games I play (heh, actually probably more important) and at the local cons it seems a bit easier to control that. Although hitting a regional con on the west coast would probably leave me friendless as I wouldn’t know many people there and that might not be a great experience either.
Actually, as far as this weekend goes, I probably won’t play that many games, just some long ones that don’t get played enough. Hope to play some Age of Steam, Dominant Species, High Frontier, Die Macher, etc. I’ll just go with the flow.
And I’ll hit the flea market and get rid of some stuff, I’ve not purged very much in the past year and my collection has slowly ballooned out of control. I think I’m at 285 right now. I hope to find at least 15 or so to cull. But as I look at my shelf, I just don’t see where they will come from. I’m sure I’ll find some tonight, when I hit the shelf hard for the last time.
Also while there I’m hoping to play some Disc Golf at the Sinks. It looks like a neat course, and CD and I were planning to hit it fairly early on Saturday Morning I think. Going to be a busy Saturday Morning though: 3 easy miles, Disc Golf, then Die Macher at 10am I think.
I’ll post a basic synopsis when I get back.
