Dilly Green Bean Games at TotalCon

So this was our 4th year at TotalCon and once again we had a blast. Angelia was fantastic!

So what did we do?

Friday night I (Jay Libby) participated in Blixapaloza with Ben Gerber (Troll in the Corner), Monique Bouchard (from SnowCon) and the Gygax Magazine crew (James Carpio, Mary Lindholm and Mike Curtis). Of course my team Michael Thompson and the other Mike) easily beat out the SnowCon team at Cube of Death, but alas, we were killed by the Gygax team….which was a good thing since the year before we beat Tim Kask’s team on a fluke.

After that Blix convinced us to read his piece of fiction (both parts). That was pretty long and drawn out. But it’s Blix….so ya know!

Saturday I ran two games of G-Core. One session was Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends and the other was Fantastic 4. A big thank you to our players who had a blast!

Other fun bits included talking with Jeff Talanian (Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea) and of course buying his awesome game, which I cannot recommend enough!! And talking with Jayson Eliot from Gygax Magazine was great fun too. I have a video interview, but I need to screen it before posting because he and I were both wiped out. I can’t recommend enough for people to go get Gygax Magazine!

After dinner I ran Chronicle 00: Book 1, the new DGBG sci-fi bio/cyber punkish game. For one of my notorious ‘Adults Only’ games, it went along much more productively than past years. A shout out to Drew Bouchard, Monique Bouchard, James Carpio, Mary Lindholm and my wife, Ray, who managed to stop a nuke from going off in Hong Kong.

And we finished up the night with the Dilly Green Bean Cocktail hour. I can’t talk about the details of that event because under rule we agree not to discuss conversations outside of the event. We hosted a bunch of people (and if I forgot their names I’m really sorry):

Ben Gerber and his wife (Troll in the Corner)

 

The two D&D Legends:

Frank Mentzer (Eldritch Entertainment)

Tim Kask (Gygax Magazine and Eldritch Entertainment)

Don Higgins and his girlfriend (Eldritch Entertainment)

Blix, Mike Kaffes and Brian Lacey (Studio 187 and ConMen)

Drew and Monique Bouchard (SnowCon)

James Carpio and Mary Lindholm (Chapter 13 Press and Gygax Magazine)

Brenden Hill (Crossroad Games )

and our AMAZING hostess Angelia (TotalCon)

I will say that this year’s cocktail will go down in history as one of the greatest. There is even a class picture we took. A heartfelt thank you to everyone that went.

And that’s it. Sunday we headed back to Maine in a nasty storm!

A big thank you to the staff at TotalCon for another fun year!! This is one convention that EVERYONE should be attending!
