A Report From the T.A.B.L.E.

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of attending the T.A.B.L.E. gaming convention in Irving (basically Dallas), Texas.  The event space was Marriott near DFW airport.  Those of you who have attended BGG.Con for three or more years will know this space as its former home.

T.A.B.L.E. was a charming convention. Lead organizer Tiffany Franzoni was remarkably successful considering that this the con’s first run.  The game library was well-stocked (which is to say that it contained Zong Shi 😀 ) and there were quite a few small-press publishers and independent designers testing prototypes on the main floor.

I got to participate in two panel talks–one on game design and one autograph session.

The former was filled with great folks on both sides of the table. Our M.C. kept good questions coming and ensured that everyone had a chance to pose their own.

The latter seated me next to HIS GRAND HIGHNESS STEVE JACKSON who is really and truly a spiffy guy, who donated a large quantity of swag to the con, and who always had the time to chat with his fans.

T.A.B.L.E. was a pleasure to attend.  It was an honor to be a part of it. We should all urge Tiffany to do it again soon.
