FIVE THINGS I LEARNED AT MY FIRST CONVENTION
Paul Cosca @ All Us Geeks, 10/16
I didn’t go to Essen. I couldn’t have gone to Essen. But there are more gaming conventions around the world than you realize. And there are many things to experience at each one.
Paul realized that he should start small for his first con, attending Great Falls Gaming Rendezvous (http://gfgr.org) in Montana. He obviously writes from a designer’s POV, but the lessons can be applied to any and all casual gamers looking for their first convention experience. Next year, Essen!
