Walked around the halls for an hour. My back is starting to get fired up so an early trip back to the hotel to drop off a load of games
Walked back to the show with Eric Lang, who is always full of funny stories. It sounds like he is working on a game that “is like Chess, but good” . Which is more likely just a way to get me to leave him alone. :)
The first Fairplay sheet is up. Still no rankings
And its very crowded for a Friday. Here is an example of one booth, IELLO at 1105.
David parlett is in the house
Jay Cormier standing alone
Had a nice meeting with Pretzel Games. I’m pretty excited about the plastic version of Flick em Up. $35 msrp, and the box is filled with bits – same quantity as in the wood version. The plastic may actually Flick and topple better. Now I will await plastic Junkart.
A new food to me. Kurtos kalacs. A Hungarian rolled pastry. Here it is in the oven.
It’s like a cinnamon roll without the frosting. Yum.
Now at 1pm, the International Gamers Awards takes over the BGG booths. As a new jury member, this is the first time I’ve helped in the awarding.
A bit hard to read. They’re still all wrapped up.
Made a new potato convert this year.
Clue: 1, yummy
Addendum. Look at the line!
Gotta get there early
Ok gotta go back to the room for a while to repack and see what the space situation is
Until your next appointment
Excellent. Definitely eating that Kurtos kalacs if I ever make it over. Just a few more items till a whole spiral-themed food day is possible.
LOL, I like the “I heart Boobies” lanyard!
It’s all about breast cancer. I got the lanyard at a breast cancer benefit. Or at least that’s the story I’m sticking to
