GenCon Day 1
GenCon day 1 was busy and buzzing. We started the morning early, before doors even opened at 9am this morning. My demo partner and I got our decks and kept to the blackjack tables all day right outside the tournament hall. I must admit I was a bit rusty, but after my first take with Bill I got my groove back.
We worked with the Cryptozoic produced starter decks and then played with some fantastic decks made by Bill himself. It was not soon after the start that I was rolling high cards and showing off my luck and strategic card playing.
It was the longest day we would be working, but it seems like there might not be much time for any convention experiencing with how many demos we will be playing. I am hoping to use my mornings to roam the halls and catch any cosplayers.
Today was a fantastic day for cosplay! I saw a Bell as well as a decent serving of Bleach school girls, Trigun characters, and of course the ever popular Star Wars and original RPG characters. The day was fascinating to witness with the cosplay culture and the bards singing their stories with medieval instruments around the convention hall. It was overall a light hearted and delightful day, despite the sore feet. Spending the hours playing WoW TCG straight was a huge selling point too.
