Mind you, I think anyone over 30 who hasn't already played it should be spanked and sent home from the con.   :D

Over 30 here...and never played it.  Anyone tries to spank me or send me home they might have a bit of difficulty to say the least.  :wink:

Anyways...Badmike and I are getting ready to hop in the car and take off. We will hopefully drive up at the Courtyard Marriott tomorrow afternoon about 2 or 3 pm.  Looking forward to meeting everyone that is attending.  First round is on Al.  :D

Holy crap!!!  After 14 hours driving non-stop, two No-Doz, three Starbucks double shots, 62 F-bombs, and one really bad IHOP experience we are finally at Indy.

If any of you are driving to Gen Con and were flipped off by a surly looking guy in a Pontiac Grand Prix with Texas license plates, I just want to apologize now and get it out of the way.  :wink:

By the way, Badmike and I are at the Courtyard Marriott in room 544.  Plenty of Shiner Bock for everyone.   8)

Glad to hear you made it. We just went and picked up our copies of "40 Years of GenCon". Haven't really looked through one yet.

BTW: On the Dinner:
We will be meeting everyone at Claddagh's. If everyone else want's to meet at the auction and go over as a group that is fine. We have to get over to Claddagh's early to get a table or tables. They are not taking reservations during GenCon but they assured us seating 15-20 people that early on Friday shouldn't be a problem. Try to be at Claddagh's by 5:00.

See you at GenCon.

After a long drive from Quebec, I have arrived in Indianapolis.  Due to a heavy work schedule the past few weeks, I haven't been able to keep up with all the happenings until now so I feel a bit out of the loop.  I'm quite eager to meet all of you and am looking forward to the dinner on Friday.  I'm in room 835 of the Courtyard by Marriot with my wife and sister.  We can't compare with KoP's offer of Shiner Bock, but you're still welcome to stop by.

Hey guys;

Well, no street party, but the Acaeum was well represented this morning by myself, Kingofpain, Killjoy and Prufrock.  We met at the registration line and then after waiting hours in line went to a well earned breakfast at the Red Eye (a 24 hour diner a few blocks away).  Waited in a horde of overweight, sweaty gamers for the opening ceremonies to get over with (didn't see or hear a word, waste of time!), then hit the dealer's room.  Quickly bought the 1E Goodman Games module, then slid over to Crazy Egor's booth and proceeded to dump a load of money on some goodies. As a bonus, bumped into Frank Mentzer at the booth as he came to pick up some stuff and spent a few minutes shooting the breeze with the legend (and Acaeum member!).  However, loaded down with stuff we had to make a trip back to the hotel room to dump it all off...jeez, only open a few hours and already having to dump off loads of used gaming stuff.
 BTW, anyone need an Ironhoofs Highlands?  I think we all got one at Egors!!!!
  Also have met Blackmoor and talked to Grodog, so the Acaeum is well represented so far.  Can't believe it's only the first day afternoon and we've already spent a fortune.  But as you can guess we are having a blast.  Time to go back and spend more money...may have to end up staying on at Prufrocks because I won't have gas money to get home at this rate.
  Going to look for James Mishler and Grodog....and waiting for the auction...

Thanks, Mike!  Please, more reports from the front, so those of us who couldn't go can at least have a vicarious GenCon experience. :)

And what about Tell Qa?  Did you get one?  Is James gonna have extras left over after the con?
