August 29, 2004: RopeconThis is going to be one of those times when I just point to somebody else's blog. John Kovalic just got back from Ropecon in Finland, and wrote a great report. (Kovalic the cartoonist can WRITE, guys. Really well. He's a great storyteller, like a Dave Barry who draws his own pictures and doesn't say "booger" quite as often.) Go read his con writeup. NOW.
I was at Ropecon a few years ago and had a fantastic time. And clearly it's only gotten bigger and better. I look at the pictures and go "Yeah, I remember that . . . Right, that's their big panel room . . . Ooo, he got to see cannon. I didn't see any cannon."
Apparently they have a new tradition for their sauna . . . they weren't doing that when I was there . . . if you don't know what I mean, you haven't read his story yet! So go do that.
Yep, the Finns know how to game, and they know how to have a good time.
