The Adventuring Party presents the first of it's two-part episode about the recent Gen Con in the USA. This week, we discuss the sort of events, games and other goings on one can find in North America's largest table-top game convention.
Also, I'm trying something new with the show notes this week. Instead of just solitary comments, floating in time, I'm providing descriptions of what gets discussed during a particular period. Let me know if you like it / hate it / it's valuable / it makes no difference.
