Speaking of GenCon: it's coming soon and it's going to be awesome! Pumpkin, Enron and I are down to three people in our room however as the fell Blackheart can't make it. That means we've got a space free in a four-person room, so if anyone wants to make the last ditch attempt to go, DO IT!
Edit: wow, it's incredible, things really are sold out! Well, there are a couple of hentai viewing events left it looks like. Anyone?
Speaking of which. I was looking at the Gen Con events sign ups. By now most of the good ones are full. If I knew what they offered, I would have checked much, much sooner. I present this (this is real):
|Bound to be Fun: A Beginner's Guide to Bedroom Bondage|
|Description:||This hands on workshop is an introduction into the fine art of restraint. I will introduce basic safety protocol, basic techniques and equipment to make your bedroom adventures safe, sensual and a great deal of fun.|
Do you want to be learning this stuff at a gaming convention. I mean, just look at half the gamers walking around. Erhhhhh... Oh yeah, the event was already full.

Now that my drive to work is longer (no radio and no AC), a person has more time to think and hate fellow drivers. Ok, so here’s my contribution to the borg collective.
“Gladiator: the Gladiation”
- Every round a player selects a stance (with bad-ass names to be determined later). At least three types.
1. Defensive (The Tower?): Minimizes/negates damage taken. Combos can counteract combos. Least damage dealt.
2. Agile: Easier requirement to explode cards and draw more cards, longer combo chains. Easiest to counteract attacks. Medium to light damage.
3. Aggressive: Heaviest damage. Some attacks cannot be blocked.
- Cards have stats for various stances. Can only use the corresponding stats depending on the current stance.

Portal 2 was fantastic. Some of those co-op levels were really awesome. I'm going to have to start checking out some of the custom made maps now and find some gems. I guess there are already some good ones.
In Age of Conan as Torgolicious. It's some pretty standard-ass MMORPG, but might be fun with a homiebarian to roll around with. I think the first portion is single player until you're out of the tutorial?
2 Nights off, praise Crom! Gonna sleep now then like play some games n shit. Ordered the Rules Compendium for 4e D&D cause I'm THIS close to going to real-life game sessions, weird! Will post trip reports.

I picked up Alpha Protocol for $5 which was the one thing I really wanted out of this sale. Supposed to be a sort of diamond in the rough, spy shooter with many different choices and paths through it. Looking forward to trying it out. I also downloaded Age of Conan (free to play MMO) and looked at the character creation for three seconds. Based on that I'd say it's a fine game! It's funny, how they get you is only like half the classes are free, and the others you get either a la carte or by upgrading to a premium account. So the kind of Slaytanic class I thought looked cool isn't available. Oh well, it's free. Probably will create a Stygian Demonologist or something.
(To give them some credit, Barbarian is one of the free classes.)
After a long gap, I'm back to logging games on the game spreadsheet! Since it seems like there's lots of board gaming going on, may I suggest you log yours as well? I may be the only one but I honestly find it fun to see what other people are playing.
peace out bros
There's a site called Artscow where you can have them print custom card decks. On BGG there's a bunch of games that use that service that look interesting. You basically create an image gallery of your cards, then people buy that set. Think it'd be cool for some protype decks or something (although regular printer paper would do the trick too, huh) but in the end, you'd prolly wanna use a real printer and get bulk prices.
Artscow has a sale right now (until 7-7-11) that if you use code 299PLYCRD at checkout, you can get a custom deck shipped free for $2.99. Only works for the regular decks (so basically ones with 1 customized side, other side generic) but there's some games people made using that. I grabbed a Decktet deck, mostly to check the quality. Decktet I guess is made in a way that you can play a bunch of different games with them. Looks neat. :) So you got a couple days to snag one up too. Here's their artscow link: LINK

Snagged you Magicka bJorn. It's a funny little game, we'll give it a whirl post-portal 2.
Can't wait to try out your game Johnny! Let's maybe hang out one of these coming weekends and we can try your game and maybe whatever we've got with Glad-He-Ate-Her ;) ... (Working Title)
