|The bustling main fourth floor|
I can sum it up with "That's two hours of my life I'll not get back"..
I've been to some poor and very poor gaming events, but this just took the proverbial.
On the plus side first, I did meet up with a few of my friends (that I'd seen just two days before) that were involved with two of the stands. The setting in the main hall on the fourth floor is an excellent venue (a superb convention had been held there many years ago)
|Larp weapons (the manufacturer of these is the guy on the right)|
one of whom was a friend selling Larp weapons and accessories
Also on the plus side was free admission into the event and the museum itself.
I should have taken note of the omens even before I arrived, as the weather worsened and I had mi-read the starting time, arriving an hour before the official time of 11am.
|The "competition" on the ground floor|
There really was next to nothing (maybe slightly less) to interest me in the whole event (I'd even recently been around the museum (just before Xmas) so it was time to go home, sometime after 12 noon.
I 'd bought nothing and the whole thing had cost me nothing, save for time.
|The Curious Pastime 'stall'|
It didn't help that another two events were on, on the same weekend (Partisan - wished I had the ability to attend) and a local "Comicon", a mere 5 minutes walk from the venue.
No matter, here's a round-up of the various games (and I use that term very loosely) and groups that were in attendance:
|This stand had a connection with Super Dungeon descent|
|Some of the figures from the above Ninja-thing stall|
|One of the games - some form of futuristic aerial thing,|
|Great looking models, the players weren't very forthcoming|
|I got nothing - no-one at hand and no figures that I could spot|
|Finally a game (Frostgrave) with someone chatting!|
|Good looking buildings (but bare boards)|
|Very good modular dungeon system, but no-one to enlarge on it|
|A space game I think, the single chap there was very pleasant to chat to|
|A table of designer bags, I assumed you could buy them if you could find the seller.|
|Display by a historical theatre group|
On a personal note, I haven't been able to much more to my projects this week, save for very disappointing efforts on my new terrain 'boards' (sadly, they may well have to be redone - arghh) and a little painting, but I should have some figures to show next week - fingers crossed!
I've also noticed that I have had an increase in followers and have been remiss in my welcoming, sorry chaps but here's a belated welcome to you all.
That's it then for this week, thanks for taking the time to visit and as always your comments are both welcomed and appreciated
