GenCon 2010

By bryanspellman - Posted on 08 August 2010

 Great to meet you guys in person and THANKS for the special Dice...will roll with pride!


You guys need a twitter feed!  Used Twitter at Gencon to follow certain booths and players and get in on some great gaming...would be fantastic to 'follow' you guys through the entire weekend!


hope to meet you again sometime!

You're very welcome Bryan and Simonne. Hope the dice roll well for you. They're guaranteed to roll better than Dave since his dice luck is awful!

As for Twitter, we have an account. It is, surprisingly enough, @thespiel. Live tweeting from the con is a fun idea, but my phone is old (it should have a rotary dial) and reception is bad in the convention hall. Not a good mix with timely updates!


What type of recorder where you using in the hall?  Do you have different ones?  I saw the one you had at the Steve Jackson Booth...

Roll On

We have just one recorder but it is very spiffy. It is a Zoom H4n. It does a great job of filtering out background noise (expcet when Mr. Dumbass here changes the batteries and doesn't check the settings!)

We used to use an Edirol R-09 which is also a great field recording unit.

I couldn't make Gen Con this year.  My first missed Gen Con since it moved to Indy.  My best friend went though, and he said that there weren't any games that he saw that weren't at Origins.

What con was he at?

I think there's at least 10 in these two episodes that weren't at Origins, that have my attention.  Thanks for the coverage!
