One of the things I love above visiting Chicago before Gen Con is attending Thursday Game night. I was able to fit 4 games in tonight. 3 new and I won 3. We played A Study in Emerald, a 1820s cthlulu based game. Euphoria, a worker replacement game, Innovation, a card game with interesting stacking and scoring techniques, and lastly 7 wonders, a quick card game of building your empire. I won the last three. I had a good shot at winning the first one until my team members killed me off because they didn't know I was on their side which resulted in the 3 of us losing. Ops! All in all, lots of good fun! I will be able to go in 2 weeks and see some of these frienda at Gen Con as well!

We had a fun time showing our neighbors how to play small world. Clara was stomping us with her trolls and halflings (seriously?!) even though Katie's flying giants were pretty impressive. I rocked it with spirit elves, Bivouac skeletons, and pillaging ratman. The final score Clara and I tied at 79, Jason at 75, Katie at 74, and Joe at 65.

Sunday morning 9am panels are hard to get to but those who made the Legendary Games' panel were in for a treat. We revealed a number of new products in the works, attendees received an additional 10% off AND we had some product giveaways!
You can read more about what it coming out on the blog at http://www.makeyourgamelegendary.com
After our panel we had a company meeting before going into the 3rd Party Publisher Panel. John Ling, Wolfgang, and Jason Nelson did a fabulous job discussing where we've been, where we are going, what's worked, and what's next.
The next 2 hours were a series of last minute business items and goodbyes before heading over to Cafe Mox for some lunch and finally a stop at the Fremont Bridge Troll.
I also added some more photos of the society game Jonathan Nollan ran for us as well as late night shenanigans.
