And you'd better do as well, laddie. It was a pretty small con, yes.
But it was a damn fun one.

A blast. People had to be fast thinking for Speed Prax. Else the RQCon/

Thanks. I had an absolute blast. And a very big thank you to everyone who
played in either or both of the games. I had been expecting only 2-3 players
from the sign-ups, but to get so many folks showing such interest was rather
inspiring. (P.S. folks, send me your addresses, who you played, et al., so
I can send you updates for more testing, once I clean them up a bit more and
get the rest of the card material in 'em.)

There was one. Roderick, Eric, Shannon, and I forget who else, ran one in
January 1995.

That does bring up the subject of when and where the next one (after Victoria)
ought to be. May I suggest somewhere we shan't need Kalikos Icebreaker?
