First Look at Laughing Moon Con

We had a great time at Laughing Moon Con yesterday, so we want to give a run-down of some of the excitement. Our apologies that these first few pictures are grainy, the lighting wasn't great and these were taken with a cell phone. We'll get the better pics up during the week.

First off, we were able to bring out the Gladiatorial Coliseum and show off a few new touches. This is a shot from the first game of the day.

Here's a bit of a close-up. Again the picture is pretty grainy. The attendees at Laughing Moon Con seemed to really enjoy the game.

 In fact, we not only had people coming back to play a second or third time - they were bringing their friends over to play with them. This led to a couple of four-player games. The pic below is from one of them. In another of the four-player games, there was a bit of excitement when a young lady effectively cleaved another gladiator in two with a single blow. This was the result of the most amazing series of dice rolls we've seen yet while running this game. After an extended "dance" with her last opponent, she finally finished him off to stand victorious before Caesar and the crowd.

Amongst the other excitement of the day, we had the opportunity to meet an array of amazingly cool people and catch up with some of the awesome folks we met at Vul-Con Arena I. We'll be posting more on that throughout the week. We'll also cue you in on the launch of the Ubi es Vulcan? contest at Laughing Moon Con.

Lastly, we'd like to thank Todd VanHooser for inviting us out and putting on a truly fantastic event.
