I’m writing this a little bit later than I usually like to, but I wanted to let all of you know that I will be attending GASP-Con XI in Pittsburgh, PA this weekend. I found about this convention from Pete Figtree, the guy behind the ever-excellent Ruthless Diastema Games blog. Ever since I found about what Pete does, I’ve been talking to him off and on. It’ll be cool to have a chance to meet him this weekend.
I have to admit, I didn’t follow my own rules with this convention, although I tried. Much like when I went to Con on the Cob, I am schedule for precisely zero games. I’m a touch perturbed about this because I am completely unable to register for any games. The website, though offering me the chance to see what games are offered when, and said games having slots available, the site states that registration for games is closed, so I cannot add my name to the list. Don’t quite know why this is the case. It’s not odd that it would be like that today, which is the first day of the convention but what is odd is that this was the case two weeks ago, as well.
That having been said, I intend to have a good time. I have a hotel lined up for this one and I’m going to spend tonight getting a few scenarios ready to run just in case I find myself at an open table with players in front of me. As usual, I will be giving you all somewhat in-process updates about the convention as well as follow-up coverage.
Oh, and as a side note, I do still have my expanded covered for Con on the Cob coming. Things have been busy for Ethan over at The Gamer’s Haven, and he doesn’t quite have the audio files ready yet. I’ll get that coverage up as soon as I am able.
If you’re in the Pittsburgh area and need something to do this weekend, come check out the convention. Who knows, maybe I’ll see you there!
