We had a tough choice – there were several other conventions on at the same time as TokenCon 2023, but the idea of a small convention where we could practice our setup and have a quiet first booth won out in the end – and we were glad that it did, even if it wasn’t a “quiet” booth at all!

Our Monster Play-testing Weekend
We finally had a WHOLE weekend to dedicate to play-testing our prototypes! This is the overview, more details to follow as we process and implement what we have learnt!
Tabletop Network/BGG.CON 2022 – 8
The end of an amazing experience at TTN and BGG! We finished the week with some games, some shared meals, some laughs, and a long flight home to our wonderful pets.
Tabletop Network/BGG.CON 2022 – 7
Finally, Saturday! Before the convention, I felt like this was going to be the biggest day – everything would be pretty tame as we ramped up to the busiest day of the week. In fact, by Saturday, it was starting to feel a lot more like the end of the whole event – many of our people had already left, and the rest of us were pretty low-battery after a week of late nights.
Tabletop Network/BGG.CON 2022 – 6
Day 6 of our convention was Friday, and George had the day off, so we got to explore BGG.CON together! And we played Spirit Island with Eric Reuss!!
Tabletop Network/BGG.CON 2022 – 5
Day 5 of our TTN/BGG adventure is day 2 of the actual BGG convention. I had my first 6-player test of this version of The Valley, so that was stressing me out – so glad I got it out of the way, though! And after that, I relaxed and started to really enjoy myself properly, which was a great feeling – anxiety is a cruel beast…
Tabletop Network/BGG.CON 2022 – 4
Day 4 of our TTN/BGG adventure is day 1 of the actual BGG convention. I had no idea what to expect, so I was very glad to already have a posse of friends and connections from TTN to keep me from wandering the corridors, aimless and alone, haha.
Tabletop Network/BGG.CON 2022 – 2
Day 2 of our TTN/BGG adventure is day 1 at the TTN conference. I was so incredibly anxious beforehand, and it turned out to be a life-changing experience.
Adventures with the Drayers – Our DIY Halloween
This is our first proper Halloween in Portland – last year, we were still in the process of moving from our apartment to our house, and there was no time or energy to decorate. Join us as we start our American Halloween decoration collection with some DIY!
Adventures with the Drayers – Frog Pond Farm
We went to Frog Pond Farm twice in one day – first, to pick pumpkins (used in the sense of “choose” in this context) and meet llamas, and then back again for the Spooky Walk in the evening. Very autumnal!
