Some years I go crazy taking photos, but this year I decided to relax and live in the moment instead and thus only ended up with one cute shot of the Friday night pitch session.

In the Nerdly spirit of sharing, though running games is not really my thing, I am happy to offer knitting lessons to anyone who may be interested! This is not strictly game related, but then again knitting is a great thing to fidget with in long game sessions. If you're interested, please bring yarn and needles, come tag me at camp, and we'll get knitting and purling. (And if there's something specific you'd like to work on, ping me privately and we can work out a plan!)

Yeah, I have no idea if I'll have time either, but maybe while I am GMing mostly GMless games?

Lost & Found! In cleanup, we came home with a few items that may belong to you — a stack of big red plastic mixing bowls smelling suspiciously of cake / a small cardboard box full of Cards Against Humanity (possibly belonging to +Cinnamon Bunny judging by the mailing label on the box?) / a box of Star Wars Edge Of The Empire. We're happy to store them (in Brooklyn) until they can be claimed/returned!

I can't believe we are now 5-year Nerdly veterans! Every year it feels more and more like a family reunion (or some sort of platonic ideal version of a family reunion...), very much missing folks who couldn't be there this year, while being glad to hang out with all the nice new faces who've joined our ranks. This is always the most friendly, considerate, cooperative, and welcoming crowd.

This year we beat the dread I-95 traffic by departing Brooklyn at 6am (worth it!!); established with +Lena Marvin that a BBQ cookoff would have been an excellent test to smoke out Union spies in Confederate states (I believe this would make a terrific LARP preferably played at a cookout); played in +Whitney Delaglio's Lady Blackbird with steely determination but probably not enough flair (NEXT TIME, WATCH OUT); got a great introduction to the world of Nightvale from +Natalia Granger; played in the most nihilistic Western since High Noon; learned how to let the buzz of carpenter bees lull me to sleep (makes a fine white noise machine for napping!); got to dust off my creaky old frisbee skills thanks to the happy return of +David Berg; enjoyed those tasty Saturday tacos; busted out some fancy Corellian piloting skills (pro tip: no Ewoks allowed in the cockpit); collected lots of excellent hugs; appreciated being allowed to sit in on a brawling episode of Monsterhearts (the Nerdly version of chilling in front of Netflix with my knitting...); collected my first ever ticks (boooo); and enjoyed hanging out with everyone terribly much!

I appreciate how well this crowd belies the axiom that listening to other people talk about their games is the most boring thing ever. Whoever said that has been hanging out with the wrong gamers, as I could listen to you guys swap tales for days.

For the first time, I've left a con with con voice! This might be a sign I'm starting to come out of my gaming-shell? And no small case of con-drop (really glad I have our home Dungeonworld game to look forward to this weekend).

Now, to roll some high fortitude saves vs those damned ticks!

Dear Nerdly Friends, Please double- and triple-check for ticks! I'd been checking periodically all weekend, and still found two jerky little stowaways when I got home. Hoping they were the only ones!

I pulled at least 6 of them off myself and gear, and two of them out of my skin. Pulled another off Peter last night. I've had lyme disease and it SUUUUUCKS. Take Adam's advice seriously everyone!

It's like Camp Nerdly invaded our favorite local ice cream shop!
