Let's see... Got there Tuesday, but one of the players were were going to start early with missed his flight to be there that afternoon and didn't get in until late that night. Wednesday around 1500 a transformer overloaded, blew, and caught fire in the back of the convention center. We had to evacuate for 4+ hours while they fixed that. So, were were about a full day behind in our gaming come Thursday morning. We forged on ahead and did as much as we could do the next three days (Thur-Sat). We didn't get as far as we wanted, but still had some satisfactory results and much cardboard was killed.

The dealer area was very full, and I found a couple of deals: Avalanche Press SOPAC and MIDWAY in shrink for $40 each. Found my wife and daughter nice t-shirts for them (tradition). Daughter got a Dr. Who shirt (she is a whovian), wife who is a great Starbucks lover got a Starbuck's Coffee t-shirt but written in Klingon and instead of the woman you normally see in the middle it was a Klingon women with two Bat'leths on each side. She got a chuckle out of it and my daughter wore her's for days before washing it. So, that was a touchdown for both of them! My son came along with me and played in the Federation Commander tournament and did better than he did last year. He also got a little more freedom in moving around the convention center and given a budget of which he kept within. So, that was great also.

Had one mechanical issue with my van, a dodge grand caravan with sto-n-go seating, MRS-1 as we call it, it overheated on an airport run. I tested to the overheating by cranking the heater to full (in 90 degree temps) and the engine temp came down. Thermostat time! Picked up my charge, a college student, and took him to the nearest auto parts store to the airport, and bought a thermostat, gasket, and small took kit, all for under $20. Took the van back to the convention center, parked it underground in a garage and left it there for about two hours. The college student's dad was the next in and we needed to get him, but I needed to change the thermostat first. Showed the college student how to do car repair in a parking garage. It wasn't pretty or nice to the old thermostat, but it worked!

Trip back was uneventful and safe. rjopel and I got a total of two turns done in a week, even though we were in the same room together and next door to each other in the hotel... That is how much we had to do.


Sounds like a full and fun week.

How old is your son?


He is 13 and turning into quite the gamer, although card game crack has his attention right now, he has his Chess MB for scouts, and is pretty good at most of the tactical games we play. He wants to learn Federation and Empire and that is my goal this year to teach him that. I set up a WITP:AE game for him to play with at home, but he hasn't developed interest in that, yet. Doesn't move fast enough for him. I am patient... I guess that is what helps me like WITP:AE, patience.

Ours went down at work last week. For the 3 days it was awaiting repair the company paid for someone to bring 3-4 gallons of Dunkin coffee into work with them.

But, he would be a great pick for your FFF con league.

Wow! A 23 year old guy with a $50+ million contract allegedly murdering his friend over a nightclub incident? Too many blows to the head?

Hey, dood! This is 'Merica! Just because he had blood slathered all over his apartment and he botched the cleanup AND he destroyed any electronics that he communicated with her on AND he lied to the Po-lice could mean anything! Let's give the nice murd...um...man the benefit of the doubt!

Hey Marc,

Maybe the scenario I chose is entirely one sided this time...

Who would ever do that?
