CinCityCon 2018: My Top 10 Games
Prior to this past weekend, I had never attended a board gaming convention (I'd only been to one convention at all - Comic Con Hyderabad - and while they did have a small booth with board games, I never ended up playing any the one day I was there), so I wasn't 100% sure what to expect from CinCityCon. That said, I liked what I found, which was exactly what I went for: games.Recommend
I went to the con with my brother and a friend (Michael and Don, respectively - neither of whom are on BGG, and neither of whom, like myself, had ever been to a board game convention), and with two exceptions basically just played games with them all weekend. I had intended initially to try to meet a few new people to play with as well (a bit more on this later in the list), but I think all three of us ended up overwhelmed a bit by how many games were available and going on, so we just sort of hit the library and started into it.
All in all, we played 17 games (18 if you count the one video game we played). Of those 17, 14 came from the library, two I brought with me, and one I purchased there from a fellow BGG user. We played only one game I had previously played (one of those I brought), so 16 of them were entirely new to me, 13 were new to Michael (who had played three of our library picks before), and all of them were new to Don.
This list is my best attempt to pick a top ten from those games.
