Gencon 2011 Day 3

I started day 3 of gencon exploring the upper and outer ring of the convention center. I found the miniature painting contest display and took a lot of pictures. Most are of poor quality since they are behind glass. I then visited the art exhibit which is in the center of the main hall.

After trying unsuccessfully to get in a Catan Histories: Settlers of America Trails to Rails, I lucked out and got into Mansions of Madness. It wasn't what I expected. It wasn't a bad game, but the problem with Mansion of Madness is the same one I have with the D&D board games: it just feels like an RPG on rails. I would just rather be playing the RPG.

Later that evening I played the new Shogun. The one that replaces dice rolling with the crazy tower you drop units into. It's a great improvement of the the original.

Capped the night off with quick games of Space Hulk card game and Bang!. The later is a convention favorite we play every year.

Day 4 is sort of a throw away day at gencon. I'll visit the hall and buy a few minor things a catch my flight.
