What is the "Gathering of Friends?" Just a con or something more important?.

Some con or something.... it's all I know.

It's a con that Alan Moon runs.

Who are the other folks in the photo? I'm sure you enjoyed the 'con'.

I'd be interested in a post that hit a few of the high-lights. I'd love to enjoy it vicariously. Share the wealth!

OK, so I went and checked out the Gathering of Friends online. Needless to say I'm so freakin' jealous. A whole week of gaming with designers and prototypes?!

Ah well...

From left to right, it is
Marty Hoff (from Austin),
Tom Lehmann (the game designer, CA),
Mark Delano (CT).

I originally thought the mystery man was Henning Kropke (from Austria). But on closer inspection, that's not Henning. I don't remember.

Mark was one of two attendees that took my lab when I was in grad school teaching. The game shown is Hacienda.

I normally don't play prototypes at the Gathering, with the exception of Tom's. [Tom sometimes posts on my blog, btw]. And normally I only play his if they're done and just being polished (card costs, etc).

I've got some minor comments on my site, I'll post a wrap up later. I'm tired.
