GenCon will be here in two weeks. As always I am excited but I can’t honestly say what or which game I am the most excited to see. I am most eager to be with and see old friends while spending 1:1 time with my youngest son.Usually my summer game playing is exploding as the summer passes. Unfortunately, I have played few games this summer, but the games I have played have been wonderful times. On Tuesday July 10, I drove to northern Germany to meet a legendary game designer and game collector, Bruce Whitehill. It was a wonderful time and he and his wife were very kind hosts. As the night came to a conclusion, he had shared with me several prototypes that will most likely be published by a European game company. My favorite game was themed in the Australian outback.
I am planning to attend game night tonight at Pulp Fiction Comics and Games in Lees Summit. King of Tokyo and Mondo will hit the table. King of Tokyo is a fun dice and card game about monsters smash about the city. It resembles the game of King of the Hill that I remember playing as a child. Mondo is a tile laying world creation game. Both games have beautiful graphics.
I read a wonderful article in the Kansas City Star Magazine today, “A Good Death” by Judith Valente.
