    Went to Expo for about 7 hours yesterday. Had a great time. I think the vendor hall overall was comparable last year but notably missing were some of the homebrew games (Buffy, Doom, etc.) and any representation by Spooky. Houdini looked awesome, had brief discussions with Josh and John and they couldn't have been nicer. New PotC was nice, lines between it and Houdini were the longest while I was there, but lots of decent games to play in the vendor area.

    Free play seemed a little more empty than from last year, but still a lot of good games to choose from (at least 2 Monster Bash, Tron, very nice Creature), so wasn't a big drop.

    Biggest thing for me, other than getting to play Houdini (badly, sadly), was finally able to play TBL. I know a lot of people get bashed on here for pre-ordering, but seriously, after playing it (and having it work until my buddy shot a ball off the left ramp and unretrievable into a non-playable area, and also knowing that this was likely an older version and not built by the new vendor), I understand why people were so psyched about it. I had a blast playing it, and if I didn't know the history, etc., I would be tempted to buy it, and I'm not even a huge fan of the theme.

    All in all, I'm glad this remains a yearly option for me to visit and try out a lot of games that may not generally be available to play, and I appreciate all the hard work that is involved for everyone who is a part of the process, from those who run it to those who bring their games and let us try them out for free. No negatives for me, and hopefully I'll be able to make it again next year!
