My fellow Princesses were whooping it up at GenCon this past weekend, but, (alas!) I was unable to make it there this year. Which was disappointing, because it was also my birthday this past weekend, and there is nothing that I enjoy more than a good gaming convention.
Except, maybe this*:
In brief, here’s what happened:
We (my boyfriend and I) saw an awesome glassblower who made the history of glass vivid and exciting:
We watched some Lords and Ladies playing Medieval Jenga.
We watched some saucy Vixens (en Garde) do the raunchy bits of Romeo & Juliet . . .
We were reminded that not all puppet shows are for children. . . .
Our section in the joust stands wanted this guy to win:
Sadly, he didn’t. . . .
But I offset the disappointment with some swag.
So while I am sad that I missed GenCon this year (NEXT YEAR, GENCON! BE READY.) I found a suitably entertaining and geeky way to spend GenCon weekend, and get slightly sunburned in the process.
‘Til next time!
*That’s a lie. I love my gaming conventions. a LOT.
