    The convention started a day early for me. Was learning some of the new games in development with other MIBs over in the Seaport on Thursday night.

    Granted, because I'm an MIB, I spend most of the convention demoing:

    Friday:
    Munchkin Zombies
    Munchkin
    I did play in the Munchkin tournament on Friday.

    Saturday:
    Frag Gold
    Was one of the judges for the Munchkin tournament on Saturday
    Good, Bad, Munchkin
    Munchkin Fu
    Star Munchkin
    Munchkin Zombies
    I did manage to get in a game of Race for the Galaxy on Saturday night.

    Sunday is the day I spend checking out the rest of the convention:
    DYAD
    Played some of the games on the 3DS
    Burger Time
    Warlords
    Donkey Kong Jr.
    Defender
    Thunderstone
    Smallworld

    Does Gender Matters in Video Games?

    I pretty much just looked around but the BF3 exhibitors wanted an video interview from me before and after seeing BF3 footage as part of a joke since I was dressed up as Ghost from MW2. It was cool.

    Shoot Many Robots

    Yes, but I wasn't in the SJ booth. I was demoing for the Tabletop Arena section (had the white shirt on for Saturday). If you passed a guy that had all the Munchkin decks, Munchkin Quest, Frag Gold, Nanuk, Chez Geek, and Illuminati on the table, that was me.

    I'm also the guy that handed out all the bookmarks to the players in the Munchkin tournament on Friday.

    I never did get to try Munchkin this trip - it was one of my goals. The tables were always super full and mostly playing the Zombie version. I was going to pick up the basic set but ended up picking up a few other games as I wanted to try it before buying to see how complex it is for different age groups.

    For the trip itself:

    Prepax Dinner - fun
    Dim Sum - even more fun and tasty

    Panels:
    Keynote
    Q&A #1
    GeekDad
    Escapist Panel
    Final Omegathon

    Concert:
    VGO/Paul & Storm/JoCo - I have to say Paul & Storm were in rare form, completely full of hell - seemed like they were genuinely having a great time on stage.

    Games:
    Face shooting/AR/Resident Evil/Nintendogs on the 3DS
    Bastion - great game, stupid voiceovers
    New Earth Defense Force game
    MvC 3 (I hadn't played it yet)
    Mortal Kombat
    Pokemon Black (I'm not allowed to buy it until after we move)
    Pokemon Online - VERY well done
    Lots of arcade machines


    I also played D&D for the first time since middle school (about 20 years or so), Magic for the first time since I was a teacher (about 10 years), and a tried and bought a few new board & card games. I had a great time!

    Tried playing Live action D&D but the vampire dude was to scary. The Giant mech suit would have been an awesome upgrade.

    Men In Black.

    We're the Demo team for Steve Jackson Games, the guys who brought you Munchkin, Zombie Dice, Cthulhu Dice, and other games.

    our bosses had a booth in the back of Tabletop (the right side of the building if you walked in by the Bioshock display) where our games were displayed.

    they made me a signature, but I eated it. and I have an 18 inch laptop. :P
