Convention Stuff (Capclave, OVFF)  

Work is going to be a bit busier than usual as the end-of-fiscal-year rush hits, but I was able to distract myself by getting ready for the next batch of conventions.

Usually, I spend most of Capclave in the gaming room, but the programming (especially some of the new-media stuff) looks more interesting this time (and I definitely want to catch the Erfworld party). I'm planning to bring more of the travelling game collection than usual, though; somebody has to pick up the slack now that Hal Haag is no longer with us.

I also made final arrangements for OVFF* (found an excellent deal on Southwest flights in and out of BWI for a little over $200 for the two of us). I'll probably bring a few games along (one advantage of Southwest is that they haven't followed the lead of most airlines in nickel-and-diming passengers for checked baggage).

(*Their site has been hit by malware attacks over the last few weeks; it seems to be OK now but I thought it was prudent to warn people to have shields up just in case.)

Current Mood: busy

Let me know what games you're looking at bringing. If I have them, I'll bring my copies (since I'll be driving) and you can keep your luggage space for other stuff.

I was thinking of bringing Thurn and Taxis and Stone Age; if you're bringing those I'll find something else. I travel pretty light anyway, so luggage space isn't an issue (absent the aforementioned nickel-and-diming on most airlines these days).

I don't have Thurn & Taxis, but I'll throw my copy of Stone Age in. I'll probably also bring my copies of (at the very least) Dominion, Small World, Revolution, and maybe a few others.

It looks like we will actually make our Capclave debut this year. Day-tripping Saturday at least, maybe more depending on other stuff.

Doesn't make up for having to miss OVFF, of course. But it's something.

Games and sundry
I was just confirming some things with Rob this morning related to Erfworld. I plan to bring in some of my games as well to help stock the games. I'll have my Dominion and the expansion set, Ticket to Ride, Settlers, St. Petersberg, Qwirkle cubes, Tsuro, and some others depending on how much space I have in the car with all of the Capclave materials that will eat up space.

I will also be bringing some of my games:

Trans America; Ingenious; HexHex 1.5; Monty Python Fluxx; Munchkin-fu; Go to Hell; Settlers of Catan w/ expansion pack; Fluxx; and Apples to Apples
