GenCon Day 3

If you can live through the Saturday of GenCon, then you can survive nearly anything.  We were busy from the word "go," this morning.

Sunday usually starts similarly busy, but dies down relatively quickly (and ends earlier).

I only played two games today: Ca$h 'N Gun$ and City of Horror.  The rest of the day, I was teaching games.

Oh - I did play one game of Skull & Roses.

I am continually shocked at how few people wandering by are familiar with Cyclades and Claustrophobia. I both saw (and ran) a number of demos for these today.

I'm not saying they're not great games - they are - but they're two or more years old. It just ... it surprises me that they're as little-known as they seem to be.

Today's Loot:
The Strange Cases of Rudolph Pearson - Apparently, Chaosium is publishing a Cthulhu fiction line, now.
Yggdrasil - I was a huge fan of Qin.  I still am, actually.  This is from the same French publisher and is translated and sold by Cubicle 7.  A very dangerous mix for my wallet.
The Smoke for Victoriana.
Cthulhu by Gaslight for Call of Cthulhu
The Mythos Dossiers for The Laundry RPG.
Outbreak: Wild Kingdom for Outbreak: Undead - Stephanie has a weakness for Zombie games that aren't All Flesh Must Be Eaten.
Outbreak: Undead .. The Gamemaster's Companion - It was free with purchase of the other one.
The Edge of Midnight, The Naked City, and Gaunts and the Underworld - While paying for the Outbreak: Undead books, these caught her eye.  They caught mine, too, in all fairness.  But she was carrying the money at the time ...

Tomorrow: We finish selling out the booth, we collect our loot, and the team goes to the Weber Grill for dinner.

Monday: We fly home.  I'm really looking forward to it. Not because I dislike it here - I don't.  I really really don't - I just miss my cats and sleeping in my own comfortable bed.
