Wow, nice haul. Mine is not nearly as impressive but I am quite pleased:

Hellfrost Player's Guide
Savage Suzerain
Savage World's Deluxe
Necropolis (finally my own copy)
Guillotine card game (for the wife, she loves the guillotine)
Politics as Usual card game (again, for the wife)
Usual Suspects add-on for above (also for the wife)
A bunch of random Star Wars miniatures

I was hoping to catch a Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic book in the auction, but no such luck. Other things I'm kicking myself a bit for are Leagues of Adventure and Shanghai Vampocalypse. Otherwise, I'm extremely happy.

Oh, and I bought a bunch of dice sets and some exploding dice (finally).

She loves the little planes. Smile I buy her the books for when I run homebrew pulp games. Now I have lots of LEGO pulp figure and two pulpy LEGO airplanes I may switch to LEGO Crimson Skies.

Nothing uber-special. There are a few Kane cards, a supers one, and a few others that are more generic.

Last year was my first GenCon, but I learned a few things to help increase the haul count. Smile Studio-2, for instance, sell their Battletech and Crimson Skies books for $5 each, regardless of actual cover value. Chimera Hobby usually have a "buy 1 get 3 free" deal -- those four Dragonlance boxed sets set me back the equivalent of $5 each. The guy I buy jewelry from does a 25% discount for exhibitors, so he gets my repeat business.

Ok, if everyone else is doing it. Not a big haul but I am happy with it as I had 20 dollars for fun money.

Adventure Deck Promo Card
Barbarians Web Show T-Shirt
Chrononauts Card Game Expansion (The Gore Years)
Dragon Brigade: Opening Salvo (pre-release adventure)
Exhibitor Badge with my name on it, misspelled (yes, I am a geek for thinking of it as part of my haul but it was cool Smile )
Kingdom of Kalamar Setting Book
Leverage Quickstart
Leverage RPG (for the girlfriend)
Paris Gothique
Runic Dice (4 new ones)
Sundered Skies Companion*
Ubiquity Dice Set
Zombie Dice (the game)

Hellfrost Players Guide and All For One signed by Wiggy and Rob (brought books to the con for signing)

*I am reading this and loving it. It is a wealth of cool setting details and adventure ideas. Now I wish I wouldn't have told my players we would try Dresden Files next.

Zombie Dice (the game)

Welcome to the Zombocalypse. Addictive game isn't it?


I had a rather modest take this year.
    Deerskin leather gloves
    A dragon pendant (for my wife who couldn't make it for her usual Sunday shopping)
    Paris Gothique
    Interface Zero Hardback (Savage Worlds Edition)
    Anima: Gaia Beyond the Dreams (50% off)
    The One Ring
    Gobblet Gobblers (fun game for the young kids
    Powerz Battle Stickers (again for the little ones)
    ...and my most expensive purchase, Fortune & Glory.*

*All the time we spent across the aisle from their booth, I'd swear Flying Frog had something subliminal in their booth display. They grabbed Rob's money after one day, and my money right before the hall closed. But, it is a good fun game, with very good production values.

Okay inferno what is your actual name? I am so horrible with name and this makes two Cons that we have met so I feel I should be able to remember your name but alas I cannot. Now if you had give me your phone number I could recite that but names just escape except for unique ones like Wiggy.

I just could not pull the trigger on Fortune and Glory although it sure as heck seemed cool. You will have to let me know what you think of Interface Zero. Not really my genre but it sure was a pretty book.

Rob and I played a few games on our return to England. A very fast and pulpy game!

Yes Inferno! The badge will be worth a lot of money. Plus it is the super rare misspelled edition. Very Happy

Cubbyroy, I really like Interface Zero. My girlfriend really likes cyberpunk (for some reason) and I have run a couple games using IZ and the Daring Tales of the Sprawl adventures. For me, it fills my Shadowrun itch without having to run Shadowrun (hate the system). Also, I believe the setting is well detailed and they use Chicago as the token city which is a stones throw from me. I could tell you more but you probably already know and I am just making a foul of myself again. Are Rob, Wiggy and Wayne behind me laughing? Very Happy

Yes, but I'm sure you sold him on it.
