Oh well. It's kinda sad really. I had everything all packed up and ready to go. I discovered that the card cases I bought fit pretty much perfectly into that iomega zipdrive satchel I'd been using to carry around counters and dice and crud. I can only fit 5 into there with everything else but it would make for a very nice carrying cases if I just wanted to bring one or two card games with me somewhere. I put most everything else into that commemorative starwars backpack I got at gencon. I was quite pissy about getting that instead of the board game I wanted at the time but I'm starting to come around. I've never seem a backpack with so many features and compartments. It looks like it would be very useful in the future as a general swag bag at conventions or as an overnight bag.
Feh. I was really looking forward to getting the chance to test out a few of the new games. Oh well, at least I don't have a hugely long time to wait. I will be going to the boardgame meetup on tuesday and josh/frig expressed an interest and kitty might be joining us there after her audition. What I really need to do is find a group of people to board/card game with on a regular basis outside of the various groups of friends I have right now. Once the summer ends, John/Richard/Melissa/Otis/Butch/Luigi and I will be starting up the bimonthly sessions again at john's place for AD&D, but it shouldn't be hard to find time for a regular game group like I had with tucker and his friends here at the U of C a while back.
