Great Kapcon this year!

I am nearly collapsing from fatigue, but it is worth it. I enjoyed every game I ran, although a couple had rocky moments.

In particular, thanks to everyone who played the Fiasco Dungeon Crawl set. It was great to see it in action, and so many great moments I can't even remember them all.

That round 5 apocalypse world game too... wow!

So, thanks everyone who playing in a game with me. And thanks to Nick & the rest of the team for the most smoothly run Kapcon to date (barring that whole thing with the toilets, anyhow).

Also that Time & Temp game. A great selection of temps from mainly different origins through history, and correspondingly lunatic approaches to the problems they had to solve.

Yeah man, another great con. 5th round Care Bears and 6th round gumshoe mayhem will stick in my mind for a while.

Thanks to all.

Very Happy Very Happy

It's not a proper game of AW unless I get another player's character to eat the heart of an NPC...

Thanks for running that game, Mike. I didn't get a chance to finish up with the prizegiving or the afterparty, so it was nice to end on a high.

I'll send my happy thoughts in Karen's direction. "So Cold in Alaska" was brutal, raw, desperate and angry, and must have been incredibly difficult to write and run. Never played anything quite like it. Fright Night GMs, the bar has been set high this year.

Yep, I agree with Ivan. I've done some dark stuff in games, but nothing's really even been in the same league as this. Awesome game. Brave and very powerful.

I am envy for the games I missed.

I am also delighted to see Alaska getting props. Karen worked hard on that, and really put some raw emotion into it.

Yeah!

A big thanks to the organisers for the smoothest Kapcon yet. Also, thanks to all my players (of which only 2 of the 14 I had played with before) and GMs.

I am sad for everyone who didn't get to play Katamari: Cousins in Exile in round 6. You don't know what You missed, and you won't understand when we try to explain it.

Also sorry to Nick for completely jumping the shark and rendering his notes useless.

CAPTAIN KATAMARI FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had and awesome weekend.

Thanks to everyone who turned up and made it great.

Particularly to those involved in the LARP, Jenni's awesome Silver Kiss game (Power Mope!), Pauls prime time adventures game and Dales Thursday Crisis- they were all amazing.

Hugs

A truckload of fun.

Much kudos to Anna's pirate Larp and all who played in it, a fun little Larp that ran very well.

Special mention to Svend and the others from the Fiasco Muppets in Spaaaace game. The cyberspace deal with 7 to rub out 1 in his speak-easy full of gangster numbers and letters is something I will always remember. Expect to be told this story several times guys, it was so awesome...

Addition for any Fiasco - Dungeon Crawl players: if you would like to be listed in the document as a playtester, PM me your name for inclusion in the document. I intend to put it on the web for free download in the near future (I have a few minor revisions are planned after seeing it in action).
