I spent a couple of hours wandering around. I’m now shattered and have no money. Not a bad day all in all 🙂

May I make a suggestion for future live blogs? While I understand the blog part, it would be nice if there where a way to merge all the videos and images into one long single video at the end of each day. It would be impossible during the middle of the day because it would be to much editing involved. We can still comment within the individual segments.

Other than that, enjoying what has been presented thus far.

There is a playlist you can watch at the top of the page @turbocooler if that helps.

Was so wanting to go this year but couldn’t make it due to “insufficient funds available”. At least I’m not missing out on everything with the coverage available. Just need to find some way of getting mantic’s walking dead promo.

I go to GenCon about every few years and always get stuck on the vendor and demo floors for a day or two.
Great job on covering the convention so far. It’s always great to see all the booths and what folks are selling, displaying, and demonstrating.

Had such a good time at the expo yesterday. Loads of cool stuff to see. Was really taken with the Wild West Exodus stand. Been painting my free mini today. I think I’m a bit hooked!
