There's not too much to say, but I had a blast this weekend.

I got started a bit later than I would have liked. This is partially because I still have trouble judging time when I don't get up until noon. It's amazing how much of the day you lose when you wake up when most people are having lunch. Still, I got on the road around 6ish. This meant I didn't get down to Binghamton until after 8:30ish. Ah well, no one had started anything until I got there anyway.

Most nights there were enough people to split into two groups, while most of the afternoons were a little smaller so we had one game going on. Mostly we played Marvel Saga which is a low key super hero game using a deck of specialized cards rather than dice. A bunch of us had continuing characters we brought into that, so it was quite a bit of fun.

The other game system I played was the new(ish) Star Wars system that Wizards put out last year, I think. That was also great fun and I'm thinking I'm going to pick up the books. It seems like a system that I could actually get a handle on running.

All in all, it was a weekend of good people, good games, and better food than you usually eat at a convention. I'll be running into quite a few of these folks at Origins at the end of next month, so I'm looking forward to that.

Yay for geekdom. :)
