This is a personal blog of my experiences at BGG Con this year, for the benefit of folks back home living life vicariously through me (poor sods).

Tuesday
I managed to get dropped off at Atlantic City International for my Spirit airline flight to Dallas.

Once I figured out that my flight was actually leaving from Philadelphia International, I called my wife to run me to Pennsylvania and made it with less than 2 minutes to spare.

It was a lovely flight, with comfortable seats and friendly, competent stewards. I was the only one on the shuttle to the Hyatt.

When I got to the Hyatt, they had no reservation for me. After a few panicked moments, we found they had a reservation for "Bill", not "William". I explained that it was the nickname for "William" and it really was my reservation.

Finally sat down for a demo of this, and ended up buying a copy.

Multiplayer simultaneous action madness.

I do like me some Mage Knight (especially the board game) so picking up the newest playable character was a no-brainer.

My flight was on time, arrived in Philadelphia 8 minutes early, and I snoozed all the way home.

This was an excellent BGG.
