Love the pins/badges, Frank; thanks. Would be good to see a collated list of all those official/unofficial ones with "RPG" associations.

Frank et al,

I have no idea what or when 'GenCon East' is/was.   Was there a convention on the east coast at one point?

Thanks Mr. Overlord.  ;-)

I didn't realize that there were so many spin-offs, and so many before I was of driving age...

Very good info, thanks!

I attended GenCon East 2 BITD at Widener, and playtested Gangbusters with Gary before its release :D  Unfortunately that was the only time I gamed with Gary personally.

I grew up two blocks from Widener college. The fact that I was only 7 in 1982 does not lessen the rage any....to think I could have gamed with GG down the street from my childhood home...

I remember going to a few of these (maybe all of them). I think I was at a talk he gave at one of them.

GenCon East 1 was in a hotel in Cherry Hill, NJ about 10 minutes from our home in Merchantville.  I don't think I attended that con, for some reason.  *sigh*

I remember going to that one. I think I slept about 3hours the entire weekend.

A pleasant surprise arrived in the mail today.  Picked up an older DMG (wizard logo, yellow-orange flyleaves and endpapers) on the "bay".  Turns out, it's a second beta print.  I've never had this copy before and you can clearly see where the new endpapers are pasted over the old endpapers.  The back cover is a tad detached at the bottom and you can see the staples also.  The covers are a bit "textured" like the first print which is interesting.

The power of eBay is that it gives Xmas morning from time to time. It is good thing because the rest of it pretty much sucks.

And a belated welcome back, old timer!


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!
