Sunday was the last day of PAX, and also the day I travelled back to PDX and my lovely family. I made a much better effort at meeting people and playing more games, too!
Saturday started out difficult, but it turned out really well – I played games, met new friends, and was a PANELIST AT PAX EAST
Friday, day 2 of PAX East, was much busier in terms of attendance – so many people! I got to do more play-testing, and went out for dinner with friends!
My first day at PAX East was also my first experience of a huge American convention. It was HUGE – about twice the size of the largest event I have attended prior to that.
The second-to-last week of March, 2023, was a busy one chez Drayer! We flew back to PDX from OKC, landed, barely recovered, then I was off to Boston for PAX East!
Sunday, the last day of TokenCon 2023, was luckily a bit slower – but we still had a constant flow of interested players – and that night, we headed home to PDX!
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.
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!
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!
Bubble Net is a game about humpback whales bubble-net feeding – try to let as few fish escape as you can, you need to eat! This is the first prototype and test of the game. It went well!
