And it was a blast. The great thing about a smaller local con is that you actually get to meet like-minded folks from your area - folks who frequent the same game shops, have play groups, little golden tidbits of advice, and local press/reviewers, etc. And since the venue was a historic building with all sorts of fun nooks-and-crannies, it was fun to explore and get to know the various designers, most of whom were from CT or nearby.
Ophidian Wars got some great play / love, and we also showcased a couple other prototypes we have in the works (Gatuca and This is Only a Test). Nobody took down the reigning Ophidian Wars champ, however!
Purple Pawn is a great fellow who covered the event, and Late to the Table was set up with a live stream too. I finally got to see Brass Empire up close and meet the designer, and made a new local friend with my table-neighbor DPH Studioz, who had two gorgeous new games on display.
