GenCon

So, I have been thinking about GenCon.. well, lets be honest, I spend a lot of time thinking about GenCon... and I always like to try out something new when I'm there, maybe pick up a new game, or play a new game.. look at some new gaming aids or tools, check out the plethora of gaming companies producing tons of awesome products, even if they are not ones I will eventually buy and/or use. Here are a few of the things I am hoping to demo/check out/purchase at GenCon this year.

Seeing as how I am building a campaign world, this seems like a great tool. The software is only $45... and the system requirements are not severe... so I am looking forward to trying it out and maybe picking it up this year.

This is a miniature game of naval warfare set in a high fantasy setting. Instead of the Spanish armada facing off against the British fleet.. (boring!)... you get the Elven fleet facing off against the Orc Raiders... they have 5 races and two more on the way. And to top it off...they even have Sea Monsters!

I read Gnome Stew's very thorough review of this RPG and it sounds pretty awesome. I have not read the comics, but I think I might like to..

Y'know this con season is actually less about buying stuff for me (although I will) but more about getting in on tons of gaming. Between Gen Con and Origins I plan on playing games that I miss but never get an opportunity to play (Call of Cthulhu, Marvel Super Heroes and maybe some Ars Magica)

Its always about the playing. But I can't go to a Con and spend less than $200...lol.

What are you playing at GenCon? Did you pre-reg for anything?
