MaricopaCon '16  
The roommate gifted me with a membership to this year's con again so I took the weekend off to attend.  Saturday got to try out En Garde, a fencing simulation card game.  Fun, though I can see how in a big multi-player game it can turn into a Pile on Player X situation.  Then after that I took part in Brendan's Twillight Imperium game.  Six player game and we managed something like 4 or 5 rounds from noon to 8PM (with a lunch break when I went home to feed the cat).  I ended up "winning" by being ahead by 2 victory points when we called it.

Sunday I was in a Call of Cthulhu rpg, "Proof of Life".  Small town politics in the 1920s over whether to allow in a lumber company.  Which leads to murder, brains in jars and a final confrontation with flying alien funguses.  Though my pre-gen character ducked out of the climax with the mi-go to run off and file her story of small town madness (with pictures!) and win herself a Pullitzer.  Which apparantly was established in 1917 and so is totally what happened.

ETA: On Sunday I (The Roommate) was supposed to play OGRE, but that got cancelled, so I had a game of Heroes Incorporated, a really fun strategy Heroes ggame which I lost by a hair, and Blood Rage, a Vikings in Ragnarok boardgame with a draft system, which I got absolutely trashed in. Heroes Inc. is out of print, so good luck finding it, and Blood Rage is a Kickstarter game that sells for around $75-$100.
