I had the great privilege of being one of the Guests of Honour at the 77th World Science Fiction Convention, held in Dublin, Ireland. I had a wonderful time.
I am still in Dublin as I write this, and will prepare a (probably lengthy) report on my return.
The other GoHs were Bill and Mary Burns, Diane Duane, Ginjer Buchanan, Ian McDonald, and Jocelyn Bell Burnell. All of them turned out to be neat, interesting people, and I am grateful to the con for arranging chances for us to interact.
This is the first time that a Worldcon has selected a game designer as a GoH, and I am (still) both humbled and excited!

Gen Con is approaching! I'll be doing the "Steve vs. the World" Ogre game, and running a game of TFT for Kickstarter backers, and hosting a couple of multi-multiplayer Deadly Doodles. And probably doing some other stuff, but also wandering around having fun.

Everything about LibertyCon went very well . . . which was probably a surprise to the organizers, because a hotel problem forced a date change only a few months before the event. But the new hotel was fine, and everything went magnificently!
At the charity auction, two Munchkin cards went for $1,000 each. Words fail me.
I watched a couple of games of Terraforming Mars, and then played one. Good game; it has been heavily hyped, but in my opinion it deserves it, and I will play again.
And, as usual at Liberty, there was a thriving game room, and we got in a lot of playtesting, as well as demos of games already released.
A great event (also as usual) and I will be back next year.

Because of a conflict with Brickworld, I was only able to attend Origins for the last day. But according to all reports, it was a well run convention. Certainly everything that I saw was proceeding smoothly and much fun was being had. The dealer room was a madhouse, which is a GOOD thing if you're a dealer!
On Sunday afternoon I ran a TFT game for four of our Kickstarter backers. They survived the dungeon and got out again, though there were a couple of tense moments when . . . hmm, I'd better not spoil, because I'm hosting this adventure again at Gen Con.
The next day we went to an excellent bookstore in Germantown. I bought an anthology: The Year's Best Science Fiction, which is not merely always reliable (Gardner Dozois is, I think, incapable of selecting a bad story) but thick enough to get me through both plane flights.
June 12-15, 2019
After missing two years in a row, I got to go back to Brickworld! It was good to see old friends, goggle at the work of Lego builders beside whom I am a mere speck on the windshield, and generally have a great time. Guy Himber and I ran the traditional Charity Munchkin Game. Saturday night I took off for Columbus, to make the last day of Origins.
