This past weekend saw us visiting the city of Indianapolis for the 45th GenCon! It shouldn’t come as a surprise that we had a blast. I picked up the up the last two sets we needed for Ascension plus a slew of other games that I’m looking forward to playing. (Descent, Small World, and Four Taverns to name a few.)
I also made sure to hit several of the Writer Symposium classes. These were very cool. Well, the Saturday 8AM class was a bit tough, but still enjoyable. Also attended Brandon Sanderon / James Sutter’s Worldbuilding class. This was a great discussion. I’ll definitely hit a few of these discussions again next year.
We also met Patrick Rothfuss! He was a really cool guy. We talked a bit about writing (thanks largely to my awesome wife because I was standing there awed) and he signed my kindle. Here is that picture:We had a great time and I can’t wait to return next year!
