I ran two sessions, saturday 2-4 and 4-6
I figured 2 hours was enough to run the first scenario - originally i thought to do scenario 2 for the second, but no one repeated and time was tight.
When I arrived I fond out both sessions were full (5 people joining me) - good since I had pre made 6 character decks - replacing some the Bof G with more flavorful blessings.
took about 30 min to teach (1 person had played a littel before)
everyone seemed interested and engaged, used different ploys to do encounters and we killed that villain at about 3:59!
great - except that I had zero time to start up again - and had to turn in one game sheet and pick up another.
I had one player sort all the cards back out - so to make it wasy I decedie to just use all the smae cards, since I knew I woudl have everything for all locations.
since we had to rebuild decks that took a few more inutes and we didnt start playing until about 4:40. We got down to last few turns and killed villian about 15 moinutes over - no big deal since there is a 2 hour dinner break - and everyone wnated to keep going.
I talked my slef nearly hoarse, but it was great to play witha large group - people helping each other, moving around etc.
I did kind of skip over the plunder and ship damage rules becuase it wasnt central to the game. someone who wants to tplay agian can add that in pretty easily.
I described how OP wokrs, showed them all the spearate character deck etc. only one person of the 10 lived near enough and was interested enough to take my email so not sure if it will help my OP game, but it was still a fun way to spend 4 hours.
Other sessions and pick up games I played at the con were:
8 Minute empire (I brought it to fill in time)
Spellcaster - quick, easy - probably buy
Red Dragon Inn - won a game with 8 players - lots of fun and colorful - probably buy
Dungeon Dwellers - OK - woudl need to play alot to get money's worth - not buying
Quarriors - ok - but again - too invovled to buy for the occasional game - and for me and my aging eyes, the dice were tough to read.
I picked up a old t shirt form the prize table.
I cant make Dexcon in july, but will really try to get back to dreamation again next year.
