    This event was a lot of fun, thanks for setting it up! Got to play some fun new games and meet some nice people. Itching to pick up Insider now.

    It was great. The only note I might have for the hotel Lexi is that they only had beer and wine downstairs (along with soda). It would have been nice to have a wider selection of regular spirits, I ended up going upstairs to get a scotch and i know a few more would have purchased downstairs if they had it. Everything else was awesome and I saw so many people enjoying themselves.

    is there a bar that is even further upstairs? or is upstairs and downstairs backwards in that post? I am pretty sure I get the meaning though.

    sorry, yes reverse upstairs and downstairs. Upstairs at the boardgame event they had beer and wine. Downstairs at the hotel bar they had a bigger selection. I can understand not having everything at both locations though, I just felt bad giving my money somewhere that I knew wouldn't be counted as part of the event.

    I think they know that the uptick in downstairs bar sales is partially for this event so I’d not worry about it. As a liquor business professional, I also suspect there may be licensing and insurance issues with having spirits upstairs that may not be justified by the cost of the event. Just a hypothesis.

    Thanks for coming everybody!!

    Also many thanks to @MagnusCarter (the British bloke at the info table), who ran the entire event on my behalf when I ended up getting called away for work.

    Alright, gonna bring Deception: Murder in Hong Kong + expansion!

    I was thoroughly impressed with this game. I had a little bit of trouble trying to understand all the rules at the beginning but playing one game in motion made everything click. gonna buy it from my friendly local game store after PAX.
    Deception is another mellower hidden role deception game, but its not as adversarial as Mafia or Secret Hitler.
    One player is the Forensic Specialist, everyone else is an Investigator. The Investigators get 4 ''methods of murder'' and 4 ''incidental evidence cards''. Everyone looks over all the cards in play and then they secretly choose their own murder weapon and evidence card. Now the investigators look at their role card because one of them is the murderer.
    Everyone then closes their eyes, the Forensic Specialist asks the murderer to open their eyes and point to their cards they picked and then close their eyes. The Forensic Specialist now chooses his own set of clue cards to place down to try and help the Investigators pin down the murder weapon and evidence while the Murderer behaves as an Investigator and tries to deflect those clues somewhere else. By the way, the Forensic Specialist cannot talk at all during the main part of the game, only relaying what he can by the vague clues he points to.
    There's 3 more rounds where the Forensic Specialist pulls a clue off the table and replaces it with another he draws from a deck to help discredit Murder and try to focus the Investigators towards.
    Bit of a dissertation, but I loved the deductive reasoning this game offered as well as trying to work as a Murderer to deflect while not giving it away that I was indeed the guy with a baseball bat looking for prescription meds, as well as being the Forensic Specialist and watching players drill down on an errant clue and not give it up, only for a last minute call by the last player to make a guess and be right about it.
    And that's just the base game.... the expansions offer many other roles to play as which further obfuscates and crystalizes the info giveng.

    I am glad everyone had fun. Its quite the chore to haul in the games but I think all but about 3 of the games I delivered got borrowed at some point through the evening! @LexiconGrrl does a great job getting this setup and I had a blast just walking around and talking to people.

    Wacky 80's adventures are always fun! And we got the best ending!

    Thanks again, @LexiconGrrl, for setting this up!
