Alas, I shall be unable to make it this year.

Although I did manage to get several games of Are You A Werewolf? going at the local university's "All Day Roleplay Day" last Saturday. And I've never known people to have so much luck. In the first game in which I'd only put the one werewolf, they picked him in the first few rounds. So for the second game I didn't let them know I'd put in a second werewolf. I even announced "Werewolf, please open your eyes" and then silently indicated to the werewolves that there were two of them. The jammy sods then picked one of the werewolves immediately, but I then quickly instructed them all to close their eyes again. Surprise!

Also, I found that a laser pointer is quite a neat way of clarifying the person you think the werewolves or seer is pointing to. You don't have to move much, and it looks cool. Especially useful when you have very limited floorspace and there are a lot of people crammed in the room.

Managing to squeeze in a game of Zendo goes without say, and also playing both versions of Chrononauts was fun.

So that's my games fix for a while since, as I stated at the start: no GenCon for me this year.
