What a weekend! My first ever gaming convention, we made it to @handycongaming in Maidenhead.
We arrived very late on Friday night. @mrginger76 felt ill, so I went for a wander on my own and ended up playing Hail Hydra, and A Fake Artist Goes to New York, with a bunch of drunk blokes. I was on the Shield side for #HailHydra, and we lost. I was the Fake Artist in #FakeArtistGoesToNewYork, and I won! Got to bed at about 2:30am.
Saturday saw me up at 9am, and I played Welcome To... (Pictured), Starwars: I've Got A Bad Feeling About This, Coimbra (Pictured), playtested a prototype of new game The Seven Dwarves (pictured), went for dinner, and then came back and played Newton (Pictured). Also pictured is how bloody tired I was at 00:30 after being up and about for 15.5 hours!
I was very jealous of the people in their pyjamas (Pictured). Sunday saw a game of Dead and Breakfast (Pictured), Imperial Settlers (Pictured), and Village (Pictured), before we headed home.
I've made new friends, met people I've waffled with online for the first time, and I even got given vegan cookies by a stranger!
My legs stopped working at a few points, but I was determined to get as much out of the weekend as possible... So I just got MrGinger76 to lift me back into my wheelchair when we were done with the games!
#HandyCon was a fantastic event. #DisabledAccess , #GenderNeutral toilets, welcoming atmosphere... And I won #CobraPaw in the charity raffle at the end of it!
I'm already looking forward to the next one!
