My First Gen Con

Gaming at Gen Con.

Although I’ve grown up in Indianapolis, this weekend was my first Gen Con. There always seemed to be something going on Gen Con weekend, or I couldn’t find anyone to go with me. The stars finally aligned this year and I was finally able to make it to the convention for the “best four days […]

Collecting Stories: Compiling the Oral History of Women in Gaming

I also don’t usually offer to help taste test my friend Claire’s cranberry-orange infused vodka (which is very good for what it’s worth). I’ve also started playing Star Wars the Old Republic, so I’m […]
