I've got 2 announcements for BGG.CON 2007!

We've some great special guests for this year's convention.

* Game designer Friedemann Friese will be attending BGG.CON 2007.

Friedmann will be demoing his latest Essen releases along with the new Power Grid expansion.

* Jay Tummelson from Rio Grande Games is attending this year and will be bringing & teaching all his latest Essen games.

They are both great guys and I'm sure y'all will enjoy meeting them in person.

(But I really want to go see Australia again someday, and see the outback too... sigh)

More colorful than the world famous Derk Solko, retired podcaster and catsuit aficionado?

There's so much color in BGG con that this year I'll have to wear sunglasses.

SWEET! Thanks for the doubly great news. Damn, it's sooo long until November!!

And to all who say that BGG.CON is too far away, let me tell you about these nifty things called aeroplanes that will transport you to Texas. Last year we had people from Brazil, England, and -- I think -- Singapore!

As a Texan who gets tired of seeing all of the cons on the east and west coast that I can't attend I say, More Cons in Texas!
