My time at the Seattle Geekly Game Day

The first game was the 2nd edition of Betrayal at the House on the Hill. It was a fun game where we end up wining a chess game with Death.

The next game we played was Who Would Win? A game a new game I picked up a few months back. The game played great and I think 5 player is the right number of the game. The box says 3 min for the number of players, that could work with one vote to win. 4 players could work, but there could be ties. 5 is the magic number for the min number of players. It was a fun game with some great match ups, here are some of the match up we came across:

  • Wayne Gretzky vs Stephen Speilberg in a cooking contest.
  • Darth Vader vs Stephen Hawking in dogsledding.
  • Helen Keller vs Blackbeard in juggling.
Who Would Win?

We next played Back to the Future: The Card Game. Its is Chrononauts with a Back to the Future fell to it. It was fun once I got the feel of the game.

The next game that got played was Rorschach, a game with inkblots. What you see is not always what others see.


The last game of the night was Zombie Dice, with one of the players rolling and keeping 10 Brians.

Game day was fun and I even got a shirt as a give away.

My summer of conventions.

Here is what I did during the summer.

San Diego Comic-Con
Had fun. I did not get to all the panel I had wanted to, but I did get a few autographs I wanted. One being was the full cast autograph of the Mythbusters and one I did not plan on was with two of the Farscape cast signed a Farscape comic book cover.
Got the chance to walk the floor of the convention more than the past and found some good swag and other items I did not know I wanted till I found them as seen here.

Here are the videos I shot at SDCC.

Here are a few panel I went to that were found online:
Mythbusters Panel Podcast from San Diego Comic-Con from the Nerdist Podcast.
Comic Con 2010: Joss Whedon Experience Panel (When Nathen Fillion shows up)
Comic Con 2010: Bones (Part 1) (Part 2) (Part 3) (Part 4) (Part 5)

A panel I wanted to goto, but could not get in to or end up skipping:
Comic Con 2010: Big Bang Theory (Intro song by BNL) (Part 3) from CBS, good camera placement, got the whole stage.
Comic-Con 2010: Castle Panel (Reads form Heat Wave) (Pranks on set) (Embarassing moments on set) (Ryan and Esposito's relationship)


Here are the videos I took while at GenCon.
