Geekway to the West - 2012

Each year I go to three different conventions. IndyCon in March, Geekway to the West in May, and GenCon in August. All three are great fun, but for different reasons. IndyCon is great, because I'm so involved in putting it on. I feel like I "own" a part of it and enjoy seeing other people having a great time thanks in a small part to the work that I do in helping Dave organize the convention. GenCon is great, because of just the huge spectacle that it is. Crazy people walking around as zombies and Storm Troopers, with new release games, and a huge party of gamers. Then there is Geekway, where I get more gaming in over a four day stretch than any other time of the year.

I first started to go to Geekway in 2009, I knew absolutely nobody there, and had a great time. I've been coming back ever since. This year was the last year I'll have a place to stay in St. Louis, so next year I will have to make the decision if I should get a hotel room or not. I'm leaning towards, "YES!" If you enjoy board gaming, want to play a lot of games for cheap, and live withing a days drive of St. Louis I suggest you attend this event. 

Also, this event reminds me again of how awesome my wife is, since she lets me basically disappear for 4 days,  and never complains about it at all. She is awesome like that.

I put up a Geeklist about my Top 5 experiences at Geekway here: Geekway to the West #3 - With Pictures!
