FallCon 30

FallCon’s 30th anniversary is also Geek-o-Rama’s 5th anniversary and G-o-R’s founder’s birthday, so it was a special weekend all around.

This year, FallCon was at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) in Calgary, Alberta for the first time after outgrowing it’s former venue. Even so, the huge room was filled to capacity throughout the entire event.

Gen Con 2017

 Gen Con 50 has come and gone and we were lucky enough to be a part of the excitement! In fact, we actually had three folks there: Dave, Katrina, and Roger. Dave spent the weekend working for Cheapass Games and seemed to have a great time. As for Roger and myself (after all, one of us has to write this..hehe), we had an exhausting but spectacular time. Let me give you the rundown…

Our Gen Con started months ago when we booked our hotel and applied for our badges. The hotel is important because the day before we were to head to Indianapolis, all sorts of excitement started because of it. I’m going to leave that for another post though and tell you about our actual experiences at the convention center. After all, that’s where all the fun happens!

Thursday started bright and early with us ar...
