I’ve worked a bit on the glossary - http://gamingknack.wikidot.com and added in all the terms people have come up with. I think it only needs a bit of tiding up and we’re good to go. What do you all think?
I have a few ideas on things I want to write about in the next little bit, on liminality (Anthropological idea I’ve wrote about elsewhere), and on pinning down what makes a con game different from a campaign game. I also have a surprise. A REAL surprise! With (not) tragic consequences. With REAL confetti! The good stuff. But that’s for later…
For now, I want to talk aboutKapCon 21 - Achaean
For those who don’t know, it’s a con over in New Zealand. In a previous post, it came up as a point of contrast to Australian cons and as a result, I’m interested in heading over to have a look see.
Being completely new to the con, I found it a bit tricky to review all the games in one go – I guess I’m used to a long list of games. On the plus side, I found the tags useful - I found myself scanning the tags for the sort of games I like and only then reading the blurbs.
After review, I think I’m keen on:
- The Difficult Life of the Costumed Henchman
- 50 years spent sleeping
- Six Monks in a Leaky Boat
If have gone in the past, I’m keen to hear any hints and tips. If you’re not going, I’m interested in what you think of the blurb style they use. If you're undecided, would you care to come with me?
