Board Game Geek Convention 2008!

Board Game Geek Convention 2008! That's what we did last Thursday, Friday and Saturday. We drove up to Dallas, starting at 6 am, to get to the convention at 10. We wanted to get there at the beginning because you got to pick a free game off a rack. We ended up getting a game + expansion of Through the Ages which Greg has been looking at for a while. We also got another game called California. So we played games, went to Dennys and got lunch at 3 and played more games. We were at the midnight drawing every night to see if we won any games. We didn't.

Then on Saturday, after the closing ceremonies/grand prize drawings, we drove back to Houston. We got home at 11:30 and had to be up early Sunday so Greg could do the program and I could go through the hymns on the organ.

Jamie,
That's actually one of the little girls I nanny for. I don't have any of my own yet. She is a little cutie.

I'm so glad you gave me the link to your blog. And I know you're a BIG boardgame fan, but next time you hit a convention in Dallas, you better make some time to come and see us. We'd love to see you!
