I've typed this and re-typed this and deleted and re-typed this again.
This is a tough one for me to type:
I will not be at GenCon this year.
It's not because of Asmodee or the changes they've made. It's not because we've had any sort of disagreement or falling-out (because we haven't). It's not because I don't support them (because I do).
It's because this summer is just weird for me. There has been an odd confluence of events that lead up to my just not being available for GenCon this year.
If Asmodee will have me, I'll be back next year.
Those of you who look forward to seeing us every year: I'm sorry. I hope to see you next year.
I hope to see all of you next year.
