This week, I grabbed my friend Philip and we sit down to talk about our experiences this year at Gen Con!  Lots of talk about the games we played (or didn't get a chance to play), the panels we saw, and the things that we saw.  What was the coolest thing you saw (or wanted to see) at Gen Con?  Next year, should we do a game to play in, or a panel where you can watch us play something crazy?
