Things were a little wild for us this year, convention-wise. It was entirely unexpected too, because we’re so broke that we have no money at all to attend convention, so how did we attend four??? Answer: we have fantastic friends, we worked our butts off for all those conventions, and three of them were close enough that we could drive home at night and save hotel costs. I’d like to review state-of-the-art game “conventioneering” and share some thoughts. In addition, I’ll add some considerations of conventions we’re choosing not to attend, and why.
That means there will be criticism; if it’s your convention, your work, your friends, or your ideas I’m criticising, please know that it’s in an effort to draw general “con”clusions (haha), not to pick on you. You probably have very good reasons you did things a certain way, reacting to crises as they arose; I’m talking about a general approach here.
