Not commenting about the Con, but I want to share a nerdy mom story. I was an early Star Trek fan - of the original series and NG - as I grew out of my twenties my interests became a little scattered, but believe me I knew who Wesley Crusher was in my day! Zoom forward many years, now I have a 20 year old and a 15 year old boy. I read your blog and immensely enjoy The Guild and Tabletop. Tabletop so much so that I have recently purchased several board games that I never would have brought into the house previously (Tsuro, Ticket to Ride, Zombie Dice, Settler's). My boys and their friends particularly enjoy Tsuro, which has been renamed "Durgen Crashers" by the fifteen year olds; it has also become much more war-like than I think it was intended. So family and friends have been enjoying many raucous weekends playing board games, and one of the "oh-so-cool" 15 year olds asked me where I had found out about all of these games. I rambled on about Tabletop explaining about Wil Wheaton and one of them said - "OOOOH, Whil Wheaton, from Big Bang!" (much emphasis on the WH - like in the word who). Suddenly, I was waaay cool for knowing all about this YouTube Channel and The Guild...and so on. After all, you know, boys and games and stuff! Reading about your joy in connecting with your son over beer brewing, I knew you would appreciate being the connection between a parent and child, also, how much fun you have introduced to our family!
