Star Trek: Ascendancy (MACE 2017)

This is the first time I played this game with the new expansions.  Both were played with a 4 player game, leaving the Romulans out. I think most of the players played conservatively at the beginning.  That tends to make

The Dreaming Ward (ConCarolinas 2017)

SYSTEM: Call of Cthulhu 7e Chaosium released a few free adventures for the summer con season and I decided to run some of those.  Key word is that these are free.  You get what you pay for.  Although they are

The sweet satisfaction

That Con is over once again and I have to say it was a very satisfying weekend.  It was satisfying in many ways.  Gaming did well, despite having less space. I got to spend time with old friends and new.
