Meet the Gameologists!
« on: August 10, 2008, 08:27:17 PM »
I just posted our official GenCon schedule on our website HERE

GenCon is almost here! I’m wavering between super excited and overwhelmed with everything that needs to get ready.

While we’re at the con, we will be updating on where we are and what we’re doing on our twitters:

    www.twitter.com/bg_meg
    www.twitter.com/bg_josh

We’re staying at the Embassy Suites and our general schedule is:

Wednesday:

Our plane arrives at about 7:00. Hoping to meet up with some friends Wed night and hang out.

Thursday:

    * 10:00-11:00 AM: Introduction to Podcasting - (Westin Congress Rooms)
          o Zeke is on this panel led by Ethan Parker of The Gamer’s Haven Podcast
          o Full Description
    * 2:00-3:00 PM: How to Talk: Podcasting, Marketing Yourself, and Selling your Product (Embassy Suites Chancellor 3 room)
          o Meg, Josh, and Zeke lead this panel with special guest Luke from The Podgecast (was formerly on Fear the Boot)
          o Full Description
    * 6:00-7:00: A Salon on Gameology (Embassy Suites Coronation I)
          o Meg, Josh and Zeke will lead this roundtable discussion.
          o Full Description

    * 7:00-9:00 PM: Media Meet & Greet - (Westin Congress Rooms)
          o Meg, Josh and Zeke will join all of the podcasters and fans for networking, socialization, and miscellaneous Meeting and Greeting

We also have a lot of panels we’re looking forward to attending and of course, spending time in the dealer room. This year we have Press Badges so we’re hoping to get a good look at some new games and a deeper look at some favorites. Then of course there is the obligatory eating, drinking, and socializing.

If you’re going to Gencon, stop and say hi!
[/quote]

So we still have some downtime to plan out and get togethers in general.  My hope is that anyone and everyone going to GenCon will join us for the Salon on Gameology.  Even if you're under 21, don't worry, it's not just about drinking, as much as we may proclaim otherwise.  The discussion is actually first priority.  From there we can set other plans and see where it leads us.

I am planning on checking out "Monsterpocalypse" already.

So according to Meg and Josh's Twitters, they arrived at the hotel late (due to bad weather en route) and have been upgraded to a penthouse suite! Fuck yeah!  :clap ...perhaps only for the night, but still! :D

The penthouse is insane.

The penthouse was almost as cool as your hotpants.  Almost.

Glad to know somebody enjoyed them ;)   Jessie just flamed me.

Speaking of, we realized at the airport that we didn't get a picture of you in them.  You MUST send me a picture.  Zeke and Josh each got a physical representation of your love, I need one too!

I think the only one we have is on Jessie's phone. Hopefully it'll look ok blown up.

I just have to say that this was the BEST GEN CON EVER partially thanks to the Brilliant Gameologists. Everyone that didn't come missed out.

I thought it was really goofy that Drow, various characters from BLEACH, and even Storm Troopers would point and laugh at me. How exactly does that work?

GenCon was fun.  I was busy in the D&D hall playing D&D Miniatures tournaments for most of the weekend, though.  Something to remember for next time.

It was one of the most enjoyable gen cons I've been to, but also one of the most exhausting. Promoting the show took a lot out of us at the con this year. I really enjoyed meeting some of our board members. I especially enjoyed MFLABIAS's hot pants.

Sadly, I spent way too much time actually working at the con, and ended up just sort of wandering aimlessly the rest of the time.  I hope some of you got a chance to visit or enter the Miniatures Painting Competition, we work hard so you can oooh and aaah over the paint jobs. *grin*

I arrived too late to actually attend the gameology salon (who knew Indianapolis was on eastern time, really?), and that was the only thing I bothered to write down.  So I missed meeting you guys.  Sorry, better luck next year?

Spent most of my time doing boardgames and (non-collectible) card games - convention rpging is too hectic for me.  But you absolutely have to keep an eye open for Dominion in October - its fucking amazing. 

Anyway, hope everyone else had fun, I know I did, even if I missed seeing everyone.

Note on photos-- I'm still not sure I want our public photos up on our site.  I'll share the ones I have with everyone who was there and hope for the same, but I'd like if others would ask before posting, that cool?

And MFLABIAS , if no one took a picture of you wearing them, you'll just have to model again to get a shot for me.

That stinks that we didn't get to meet the other folks who were there!  The penthouse was a pretty cool party lair and it would've been great to meet you all.  Next year, everyone who goes must take my cell #.

I learned to go back to driving myself.  No matter how much the other person assures you that they "do a lot of partying at Cons too", their definition is in no way the same.  Fake Partiers.

I think there is only one pic of me at the Con, but I've said that before and been proven wrong.  Although Josh described me and Zeke as being in "The gayest position ever" in the picture I know about, go ahead and post 'em if you got 'em (assuming the others pictured agree)...

I only got a "slightly gay" picture.  Stupid lag time. 

Also of the photos I do have most of them have people with their eyes closed.  And by people I mean Meg.

I walked around the whole con with my eyes closed, didn't you know? 

I only got like 2 pictures of myself.  Though one of the best is of me and PheonixInferno.  I can't quite recall the exact situation, but it involved him giving me money.  But I didn't take it with my hands. 

I'm looking down in that one, my eyes aren't closed.  I was trying to pretend to blush. 

Oh, and actually I got an action shot as a present for Kai.  It's still a surprise until I can upload it for her though.
