Prezcon 2008

I’m in Virginia, heading for Prezcon, which is starting today in Charlottesville. Getting here was a little challenging due to snow at my transfer point in Toronto, ON. De-icing etc. set us back enough for me to miss the train from Washington D.C. to Charlottesville so I stayed the night in Northern VA with a friend and we’re driving to Prezcon shortly.

I’m looking forward to playing in tournaments, playtesting and developing new games, and having a lot of fun. On Saturday night, I’ll be drawing a name at random from all those who entered in Columbia Games tournaments at Prezcon with a grand prize that will include a copy of every historical blockgame.

Sunday, when the convention ends, I’ll be heading back for D.C. where I will rendezvous with my new adopted daughter, Simonee Eden who will be arriving from Ethiopia that very day. I’m planning to get on the very same plane that she’ll be on! I’m still in awe at the fortuitous timing of her arrival coinciding with my trip to the east coast.
