GenCon; Booth #2129

Oh man, oh man, it is almost that time of year again.

In a few short hours, at the crack ass of stupid, I will be boarding a plane to Philadelphia and then another, smaller, less agile plane to Indianapolis for GenCon.

Lar, Randy, Moss, Will, Shayna, Greg, Krystal, Costello, Tom and myself will be at Booth #2129 for the best 4 days of gaming.

At our booth, not only can you buy a myriad of things (new things!), but we’ve also made an exclusive Jumpmaster Julie card to be used in the LICD Card game, that can be yours if you know the magic word.

If you’re at the show, you have no excuse not to come pay us a visit. And if you don’t, I’ll know.

I always know.

The Fatigue

Like everyone else out there, I’ve been experiencing an incredible wave of news fatigue.

Where I used to listen to the news every time I was in the car, I’ve had to cut my listening way down due to the fact that screaming alone in my car doesn’t actually solve anything, or make the world any better.

That said, I’ve turned to books on tape via Audible.com, and I’m looking for some recommendations.

I’m hugely into history and am right now enjoying the hell out of the story of the birth of the British Royal Navy. My theory has always been the more we learn about our past, the less likely we are to repeat our mistakes.

If you’ve got something I should give a listen to, in that vein, please let me know in the comments section below.

A Social Contest

I thought we would do something fun this week, because why the fuck not?

While my blogging has become rarer these days than I would like due to various constraints on my time (your steady diet of comics), I am rather active on two social media fronts, including twitter and Instagram.

To incentivize you folks to give yours truly the old follow, I set 2 goals, one for each platform. Once we hit those marks, I will pick 15 people from each platform at random and send you an LICD care package.

Easy enough?

Just click on one or both of the following links and get your follow on.

I see you there.
