Gencon 2009 has come and gone and I'm finally feeling normal. It was a great week of gaming. I ran 3 events (Darwin Race, Revenge of the Terminals, and Inferno). The groups were great fun. Two of the three groups consisted mostly of people who had never heard of Darwin's World which was great. The last one was mostly fans which made for a really fun and experienced game.

The Darwin Race adventure didn't go as well as I hoped. The adventure needs a lot of tweaking so it may be a few weeks before I release that. I played Revenge of the Terminals again as an event, and I think it's the best gencon adventure I've written. It just works very well for a convention event. Sometimes you strike gold and sometimes you don't.

I played a ton of board games too, which is what I do at night. I played some Power Gird, Game of Thrones, Twilight Emporium (I won), Steam, Cash and Guns, and some hearts. I always purchase at least 2 new board games and this year it was Steam and Neuroshima Hex. We played Steam twice, playing it wrong both times, so the verdict is still out on that one. I haven't played Neuroshima Hex. It's a post apocalyptic board game import from Poland. Tell me that doesn't sound awesome!

One thing that is always great about gencon is that it really recharges you creative batteries. Normally I come home with lots of ideas, but that is often stifled in some ways as I normally have a slate of projects 6-8 months in the pipe. But this year I only have a few minor things. So I'm very excited.

Neuroshima Hex isn't awesome, but it is a good and fun game to play.
