Kudos for getting pics of Stellaris: Infinite Legacy.  :bigthumb:  (Although I can already tell it's going to be a chore to unpack...) 


Also:  That photo of the Scotsman playing the Spaceball trooper might be the most iconic one of the entire convention.  ;D

there weren't nearly as many costumes this year as normal

if you were going to enter the contest, this was the year to do it since your odds were greatly improved

Made it back home! Great drive through the WV mountains yesterday. On the downside I'm at about 65% on the battery meter and I sound like a bad impersonator doing Barry White's voice. Hopefully it's just from all of the talking (I'll take a COVID test later on just to make sure).
For me personally, this was probably my favorite Origins as a GM so far.  :bigthumb:

Glad 'you're home safe and had a good trip. :bigthumb:

got home in time for dinner last night.

missed the Discord happy hour but was there for the start of Gary's show

everything's out of the car, but a lot of it is still in bags / boxes.  I gave the family their loot, but the rest is in my office waiting to unpack

ICv2 reports Origins attendance numbers at 11,689.  Up from 2021 (10,746) but still way down from 2019 (20,642).
Still had a great time at our Wargame HQ with all the wonderful players that stopped by to sling dice with us.

Interesting.  I got the impression this year's Origins was at least somewhat busier than what those numbers are showing, but of course I wasn't there.

Maybe next year?

I'm going to try to make it work, brother.  No promises at this point, but the itch to go back has remained strong ever since that first time I attended.
