Now, before I looked at the list, I was convinced I would spend most of the time at Gen Con wandering around bored with some friends of mine, or reading every last book I had in an attempt to stave off my boredom.
I couldn't have been more wrong.
Some (and by some I'm probably only hitting a small portion of possibilities) of the events include:
Dominion games - deck building game that I really enjoy playing.
Red Dragon Inn - an entertaining board game where you try to get the other players drunk...I mean the other characters drunk. Trust me, nobody has to drink alcohol.
Anime events - like re-dubbing the anime
LARPing (Live Action Roleplaying, not that I'm into that)
Role playing games
Seminars about writing, LARPing, and more
TDA (True Dungeon Adventures, similar to LARPing but with a created dungeon and animatronics)
Brandon Sanderson! - He's an author, and has written some pretty awesome books. He also plays a mean game of Magic.
Don't let those looks fool you, he's a ruthless Magic player!
Needless to say, I'm quite excited about the whole thing!
That reminds me that I need to buy a camera, because this is something that I simply MUST have pictures for. Don't worry, I'll be blogging about it with all my fan boy excitement!
