got there on friday. scoped the dealer room and ended up walking out with a nice 'Minute Man' flag from fallout 4. took some photos and hit me the magic tables. ended the night with 'dickies bbq'.
saturday caught the mass effect reunion with Alli Hillis (Liara) and Courtney Taylor (Jack). got some good stories and learned Taylor got in to boxing. she teased Hillis with the asari 'by the goddess' line. hit scoped the merch room again and got me a nice hand made leather pouch with a celtic horse design wanted a celtic knot but the style of how it was made i liked better on the horse. took some more photos and hit the magic room again ended up competing in a tournament. lost to the first opponent. the second was a kid who goofed around with and he ended up loving my decks but hated going against them. his deck didnt stand a chance against anything i threw at him. toyed with him for 15 minutes bringing him down to 4 points left. i asked 'so what you at? 1-0 so far in the tournament?' he replied '0-1' i replied 'well i cast bloodghast' and he groans that he just cant get a break. i laugh. then i look him in the eye and said 'and with that i forfit' and looks at me CONFUSED as hell. i look at him and said 'i have to head home now remember?' he looked like a deer looking at on coming car lights. he asks 'then why continue to play?' i grin and say 'and miss the opportunity to fuck with you like this making you squirm for 15 minutes and get that look on your face?' the other guy hears this and says 'oh dude thats cold... fucking funny but cold' and i reply 'i know huh... good luck man'.
sunday arrived at the con heading to the magic room. found my last opponent from the other day. he managed to get 2 wins 1 loss before it ended. talked with a few people. played 1 game. and rushed down over to the autograph line. ended up getting my copy of Mass Effect 2 signed by Courtney Taylor who just loved my shirt 'Nerd? I prefer intellectual badass' and told her i had a better one that had a 20 sided dice and had 'AC/HP for those about to roll we salute you'. she laughed. as other fan ahead of me before i got to her asked game questions i ended up throwing her a curve ball of 'the other day you stated you got in to boxing. im curious... in fighter or out fighter?' she looked confused 'inny or outie what?' reply 'no. you where a in fighter like mike tyson or a out fighter like ali?' she was surprised i asked that question and i knew that terminology. found out she was a out fighter who trained with a woman who was a in fighter. thanked her and walked off. headed off to Alli Hillis. when she saw me she recognized me from Taylors line and said 'ok lets see this shirt i heard about with courtney...' showed her and she laughed saying 'nice'. got ME 2 signed and got to talk with her for 5 minutes as no one else was in line which was nice. headed off. took some more photos and once again headed for the magic room to compete in the last tournament. ended up taking 3rd place getting 3 boosters. great day over all. after the tournament headed home and now... recovery...
