February 12, 2017: Reporting In From OwlCon

OwlCon is in full swing and it's awesome! Owlcon is a gaming convention held at the Student Center (and surrounding buildings) on the Rice University campus in Houston, TX. If you like board, card, miniature, LARP or roleplaying games, this is the con for you! Come say say "Hi!" to Houston MIB Demo Team members Christopher, Don, James, Jessica, John, Maurice, Marybeth, Neal, Sarah and I at the Mid Level Conference Room 1.

Friday got off to a bang with lots of games. The Demo Team and I were busy running Car Wars: The Card Game, Revolution!, Simon's Cat Card Game, Batman: The Animated Series Dice Game, and LOTS of Munchkin! Many people came by, games were played, and swag was given away.


Saturday offered a full day of fun and games to satisfy the most hardcore gamer. We be played even more Munchkin, dice games, Simon's Cat, and Ogre, which rumbled into OwlCon in two waves: Ogre Sixth Edition and Ogre: Objective 218! OwlCon attendees also got a sneak peek at Ghosts Love Candy. Scary fun for ghosts with a sweet tooth!

We still have a most excellent surprise for OwlCon attendees as well! Check out our most excellent giant sized copy of Bill & Ted's Excellent Boardgame! Travel the circuits of time, collect figures of historical significance, and ace your oral history exam! Even though it's the last day, there's a lot to do at OwlCon, so come by and say "hi!", play some awesome games, and pick up a little swag. Plus, if you show us your #SuperbOwlConSuperMunchkin post on social media, we'll give you extra swag! See you soon!
