As always my Mondays at conventions are spent chilling out, perusing the dealers room and saying goodbye. It’s a shame really, that of four days, you really only get three to game, but I suppose every event has it’s “dead days”. When I go to Gen Con I plan on being there Wednesday – Monday so I can soak it all in, but that is a real rarity for me.
Monday 8:00 AM
The better half and I woke up, got dressed, packed and then headed downstairs for some breakfast. We spotted Cassie just before her game started, chatted with her and Brent some and then meandered.
Monday 9:00 AM
We checked Wasabi out from the Game Library again and played it with just the two of us. Kevan came down about half way through and we talked about the game and the con, a nice way to wrap things up.
Monday 11:00 AM
My mom showed up with the kids, on time, which was great. We headed home, hit some traffic and then basically passed out, exhausted from the weekend. I rode my bike around a bit for exercise and then prepared to play L5R in the night.
Thanks Kubla folks, for another awesome con.

Side note (cause it’s the end of the day and I’ve decided I’m useless until 5:00 :p)
Played Wasabi Sunday night and found it cute and with strategy that I need to work on. But I think I’d totally want to have sushi dinner *before* playing the game to avoid the cravings it created. :p
Monday we tried another Z-Man game, Middle Kingdoms. It’ll take a while to really get the hang of, but after two games, we were really enjoying it. I saw at least two people I knew picking this one up over the weekend, fueling my desire to try it out. Given that it was played with L5R geeks, we were really digging that strategically, the special cards were really interacting in a flavorful way…the Heir was awesome, but less so if the Emperor was in play, but having them both made you pretty awesome..etc.
I don’t have a long drive from Kubla so I was hanging out until about 6pm.
