murasaki_1966 and I are in Albury at the moment recovering from three days of boardgaming at Bordercon.
We've had a fabulous time - caught up with a lot of friends from all over the Australian gaming scene (and hopefully made some new ones.)
I'll be posting a fuller report as geeklist on BoardGameGeek, but as fair as I'm concerned, Neil Thomson and family have done a great job putting together the best game con I've been to.. Much better than the more commercial Australian Games Expo in Canberra on the Australia Day long weekend. For a start, we could spend most of our time playing games and less time hunting for space to play games.
tomorrow we'll be catching up with eneit and pushing on to Wagga Wagga - then to Cootamundra and Canberra. One of the joys of a road trip is being able to make last minute changes of plans.
Albury itself is a lovely small town so hopefully we'll come back next year - even if it means we miss the Natcon.
As I'm typing this on my iphone, you'll all have to wait until I'm back in Sydney for pictures and details. At the moment, we're just basking in the afterglow of a wonderful convention.
