Twenty years ago, you could go into a gaming store with a couple of bills and come out with a handful of minis.

Not so much today. But today’s quality is far superior to those figures of the past.

Reaper’s Bones meet that sweet spot where low price intersects with incredible detail.

All the fiddly bits you love to paint are there at prices that will astound you.

These models are made of a high quality polymer, and are ready to pain them  right out of the box

Pre-Convention Expectations

As a gaming convention virgin I really didn’t know what to expect from Con on the Cob in Hudson, Ohio.  I’ve only been to a few “other” conventions of any sort (a toy-fare in Pittsburgh, PA and the Triplet Convention twice with my family), so I understood the general concept.  Gamers gather, play all their favorite games, try out some new games, check out some cool and/or weird art, books and other gaming-related products, attend seminars, enjoy some entertainment and other parties.

Matt and I contacted many of the artists, vendors, game producers and other special guest to set up interviews and promote this site and our larger project of what Through Gamer Goggles is about to become.

And then we arrived.

Initial Impressions

We were a little early by intent, to give us time to meet Andy Hupp – the coordinator for the convention and artist extraordinaire (or at least extraordinarily weird) – as well as set up our own table and orient ourselves to the hotel facilities.

The first day Matt and I met a lot of artists, developers, etc.  Check out the interviews!  I cannot possibly thank all of you enough.  But special thanks go out to Vicky Beaver from Savage-Mojo; Ben who ran some D&D Dungeon Delve encounters; Mary Ann of Chicken Hut Games; Jay and Sue of Lonely Die Press, John, Ryan, Ed, and Matt of Silvervine Games.

While I was secretly thankful for a cold that left my nose stuffy and unable to smell some of the less-than-hygienic gamers, I found this to be the most welcoming and friendly crowd ever.  For a bunch of dice-rolling, basement dwelling, introverted geeks, even someone as shy as myself found it easy and enjoyable to interact with so many different people.  As far as I could tell, a good time was had by all.

Magic the Gathering Grand Prix Pittsburgh 2011

 Gaming News, Magic The Gathering, The RL  Comments Off on Magic the Gathering Grand Prix Pittsburgh 2011
Aug 242011

Well, I really wish I had a lot more time to hype this Magic the Gathering event up – I don’t.  Here is the run down.  I am Leaving early Friday (Augus26th 2011) morning, after sending the children off to school, to judge at the Grand Prix in Pittsburgh (standard).  Between now and then I have to maintain my Dad’s Kitchen image for the kids, study more, shop for food (I always take some healthy foods just in case), and pack.  They are a very fun, and educating experience.  If you are a judge, Grand Prix’s are an awesome avenue for learning.  There are so many players and judges there that you will something new at every event, and most likely each day.   Since you are broken down into teams it is an excellent time to set a goal for yourself, like learning layering.  OOPS!  I’m rambling.  This event is going to be extremely busy.   There will be about 50 judges to handle about 1500 players.  That is going to be a lot of work.  I am looking forward to it though.


The artists attending are RK Post and Christopher Moeller.  I always look forward to getting some cards signed and buying at least one print.


Well enough about the Grand Prix for now.  I will Try and have a GP report up by Tuesday August 30th.
