The time of the weekend.

The weekend started after work on Fridays. Headed out for a meet up for some food. After the consumption of food, we went to the place of gaming. One of our group was not there and after arriving at the place one of the other player were not feeling to well and was not up to gaming, but was OK for boardgames. A boardgame night was not planned and we did not have a large choice, luckily there was a copy of Ticket To Ride available. Fun was had and I came in 2nd with 132 points with a good end game scoring, but lost out to Norm, who scored 153 with some good passenger scoring.

Saturday was here and I headed over to PaizoCon. Picked up the swag bag that you get with the convention. Score. The bag had 3 books, 2 modules, a magazine, a minature, a game map and a game aid. With not being able to getting preregistered for any of the games, I checked out a few of the seminar. With a break from PaizoCon, I headed over to Dragon's Lair (in Bellevue) for Free RPG Day. I had wanted to pick a free game they had available and ended up signing up for a D&D 4th ed game of the module they had free for Free RPG Day, Bloodsand Arena (a Dark Sun game). Fun was had and after the game (with a roll off of 17) I was given Tomb of Horrors (the D&D 4th ed update of the original module). I was informed by the Wizard GM that ran our game, that the module is not being sold and is only given away as a prize by Wizards. Score.

Sunday. I sat in on a few more seminar and called it a day.

That was my weekend.

w00tstock 2.x poster on the wall

The poster has been framed. With the odd size, it took some work to get this done. Found a oversized frame that I knew it would in and got a custom cut mat. I did not know that there were so many different blacks and textures for a mat. With the mat, frame and poster now together, it has found a home on my wall. The good news is that it did not cost a arm and a leg to get framed. It cost around $38.00 for this frame job. A lot better than than the quote of $70 for a total custom frame job.

Boardgame Night with Arkham Horror

With a group of four (two people down from our normal RPG night group) we played our first game of Arkham Horror. We played it for about 3 hours and got about over the half way point before we called it a night. For a first game I think it went well. There was a lot of rules review, but with the next game, it will go a lot smoother the next time.

Not a short game. The box says 2 to 4 hours and it was more for a first game.

With this being the first time I have played it, I would give it a 7 out of 10. It had a feel of a RPG, like we normaly play.
