BigBadCon is exactly what I want from every game con. Great games, great GMs, great players, great organization. The biggest problem is all the other games I had to miss by choosing the game I was in. My gaming group has gotten used to my saying to them after a con “I’m really grateful to have this group” because normally I had at least one horrible game at the con. Not at BigBadCon.
I started musing on trying to re-create some of that at smaller scale… say, one weekend, five people, five games – everyone runs one game with four players, one Friday night, three on Saturday, one starting Sunday morning… something kind of like a LongCon house event (but I was picturing the sessions as independent, not part of a larger story line.)
