I did a write-up of the battles I played over the weekend at SmogCon and general thoughts on the event, for anyone interested. It ended up way longer than I anticipated, so rather than running it over several posts and re-doing the formatting an picture links, I’ve just uploaded the original word document here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B50i9C4514wmQWVwUE8zcmFfZTQ/view?usp=sharing
But in summary: I played 4 games in the Steamroller tournament, won 2, lost 2 and finished ranked 31/60.
I spent the rest of the event in the Iron Arena, a laid-back gaming space where open 24hours a day over the entire weekend where you just grab pick-up games with other players – you get points just for playing and these can be traded for prizes. I played a further 6 games in the Iron Arena, won 4.
Overall it was an awesome convention, and a great opportunity to meet up with great folk, including a few Privateer Press staff, and play a ton of games. I’m planning on going next year, and would highly recommend others consider the trip too
