Gen Con 2018, Day 3

For Day 3, we got there early enough to rush the vendor hall again.  We didn’t really have too much in mind other than checking Privateer Press’s booth out to demo Monsterpocalypse.  Turns out the game is pretty fast paced and a lot of fun.  I really enjoy the idea of giant robots throwing monsters into buildings.  Which is probably why I like Pacific Rim so much. We ended up purchasing the game and some expansions.  Not wanting to carry it around all day, we went back to the car to drop it off.  Rachel decided to cosplay and wanted to ditch her cloak so the trip back to the vehicle worked out.  On our way back, we decided to have an early lunch to beat the rush.  Bill and Sarah hadn’t yet arrived so it was good timing.  The four of us walked the vendor hall and made a few more purchased.  We stopped by Forged Foam and checked out their new swords and shields.  Rachel had been wanting a weapon that could get past my sword/shield combo and I picked up a very long 2-handed sword.  We ventured over to Lucas Oil and checked things out there, but I couldn’t find the Artemis Bridge Simulator places to show Bill.  After this we headed back to the vendor hall where Bill and Sarah got set up with some X-Wing gear. 🙂

After a few hours of walking the vendor hall where too much money was spent and our feet were sufficiently sore, we headed home.  Ending out the night just hanging out and chatting.  Overall it was a good time with Bill and Sarah and I think we’re all looking forward to next year!
