Once the car was unloaded, I made my first connection with Trollcon, which was Rick Loomis's poker game. I bought Ken St. Andre's chips as he was leaving for the night, and cashed out ninety minutes later with 50% more than I had started with. I slept in on Friday morning, and then came in a bit late for a Ken St. Andre-run Tunnels & Trolls game, which ran until late. Everyone was surprised that all of the player characters were still standing after all of the bad guys were dead. On Saturday I had a choice between another T&T session, and hanging around with Ken and hearing stories; I chose the conversation. That segued into a four way game of Magic the Gathering, in which I used my 17 year old black/white deck (that has not been used for 15 years) against three modern decks. I won by virtue of keeping my head down until the others had killed each other, and then stomping the survivor. After that, I got into another T&T game under the legendary Bear Peters. We adjourned at midnight, re-convened at noon, and finished up at about three. And then we were off to Tombstone.
We were checked into our hotel in Tombstone by a charming pixie named Ashlinn, who was on her second solo night at the front desk. On Monday morning we did the tour of Boot Hill, then did a fast recon of Tombstone proper, then were off down the road to Roswell. In the morning, we hit a number of the Roswell tourist traps, including the UFO museum, and started the long (two and a half day) drive home.
Photographs will turn up here eventually...
