A Day of Firsts

Today was my first day at my first Gen-Con! Gen-Con is a big gaming convention held here every year...but it's way more than that! lol

We had not pre-ordered tickets, so we were on lines for 90 minutes getting our tickets. But then we got on our way. The 1st thing I did was play Uno. The gal running the game had perfected a version of Uno combining rules from all over the world. The biggest rule change for me was if someone plays a red 3 & you have a red 3, you can play it right away even if it's not your turn! lol That was fun.

Then I walked around the exhibit hall a little & had lunch. Then made my way to was the beading class for SPA's were held. SPa's are what they call spouses of gamers! lol There were a dozen of us. It was fun. There was a gal from Illinois, a gal from Ohio, a gal from St Louis & a gal from Maryland.

Another 1st for me was beading! I had never done it! It was fun. I made 2 bracelets that I will be giving as Christmas gifts.

After that 2 hour class I walked to where Dale had an hour left of a game...then we had dinner & signed up for our slots for tomorrow. They are having an 8 hour Survivor game that I wanted to join, but it was all filled up..maybe next year!

My 1st thing tomorrow is 9-11..a walking tour of our city with the SPA's...we will see if we get there in time..Dale is still down playing games & this game doesnt end til 1. We slept in today & didnt get down there til 10.

Well, just wanted to share my day of firsts!
