GASP-Con XI – Sunday 0

Today was an off day for me. I woke after having slept for almost 9 hours (I know! And during a convention, no less.) and didn’t feel rested. I got up, left the hotel and grabbed some breakfast from a nearby 24-hour food joint. Not even three cups of coffee and a decent veggie omelet set me right. I got to the convention and took a…

GASP-Con XI – Saturday 0

As is usual with my convention coverage, here’s  a rundown of my first day at GASP-Con XI. I have to say, after being a little disappointed with the state of the website, I didn’t have the highest of hopes as I was driving towards the convention. Still, as I pulled up to the venue, I decided to stow my cynicism…

Jonathan Lavallee over at Gamish Designer has been working through the Game Chef entries one by one and published a mini-review of mine in his blog. Did he love it – no, but nor did he hate it.

Just a quick hit tonight, but it’s a good one! I just posted Complete Characters #7: Sir Aric Devilkin, Evil Knight, Demon’s Son up at DriveThru.

Declan played in this game as well. Session #2 –  Fiasco We ended up with five players at the table once again. This time the group chose…

Gaming with Kids: We played some Fiasco and it was a big hit 0

Fresh off my games of Fiasco at IndieCon, I decided to teach the kids at the game club how to play it. We had five players, including myself. I let them choose the playset (they choose the Wild West playset from the rulebook) and we set about creating the situation.  The results were a tangled mess of relationships, locations, objects, and needs: My character …
