This year the Demo game was Dungeons & Dragons 4E. As I was walking down the hall towards the game room, I encountered one of the guys from last years Pathfinder game and he said they were looking for a 4th player for the demo game and I said I just happened to be looking for exactly that. This was a decent game and I enjoyed the time I spent. The other three players all had played together before, which actually made things a bit easier, since they already knew each others strengths and weaknesses. They seemed to have their own pecking order and preferred classes and I was able to follow along, filling in the necessary holes. Sadly the game ended in a near Total Party Kill, with only one character surviving, and he only survived because I suggested he run. While I did have fun, I have to comment that I missed Gavin, the GM from last year. It is probably not fair to compare this years GM to Gavin, because Gavin is an experienced, old school GM and one of those rare GM’s everyone loves to play under.
Despite the near TPK, it was a fun game, I enjoyed it, even as we were getting our asses handed to us. I expect I will be there next year as well.
