Mickey (GeekGirlsRule), Leslie and I got there on Saturday afternoon. After settling in we spent a little time hanging out with Matt and Shannon, the couple who do the Seattle Geekly podcast, then we broke ranks and Leslie and I played a fantastically stabbity game of In A Wicked Age. After that I socialized and then went to the indie publishing panel which started slow, but ended up engaging and fun. After more socializing and wandering about I went to a nice brewpub with Harper and we had some nice beer and food. I got back and jumped into a game of Hot Guys Making Out with Mickey, and Pol and Karin Jackson which Karin described as "smut chicken." Who blinks first? All I can say is that white wax dripping down a candlestick was excellent color to the action taking place. Then drinks with Harper and Carl Rigney.
I spent the next day mostly socializing at the indie hurricaine booth and eating great food from the farmer's market out front. I went to the game design panel and that was a good time.
It was awesome to see the crew, who mostly live too close for me only to see a few times a year, to meet a few new folks (hi, Brian, Tiffany, Vincent, Twylla) and to just chill.
Oh, and I bought a copy of Heroe's Banner.
