russcon home taglibro
12 of us played 13 games! Welcome my ex-cow-orker and Flipside Camp J cohort Justin aka cowquat (not to be confused with another Justin who came to RussCon in 2003).
Post-Flipside, "I seem to have fallen out of time" (and not just from confusingly writing the last couple RussCon Reports way later than usual)... my brain is now being sucked dry lately due to the immense labor for the Esperanto Congress which officially starts on Friday June 10 this week, and which I am a main organizer of. These final days are insanely surreal and hectic. I have never organized anything like this before.
On Saturday afternoon there will be FREE Esperanto classes by 5 different instructors (including one from China!) all afternoon, starting at 1pm. Anyone interested in checking out Esperanto is welcome. The Congress will take place mainly in the Peter Center of Concordia University; the free classes will be running in Kramer 108. You can park in Harms Hall parking lot (northwest corner of I-35 and 32nd Street) for free during the Congress. http://kongreso.hewgill.com is the official Congress webpage.

That first Ricochet Robot game was tantalizingly close... Tim, Ben, and I all had 5 chits in a 3-way tie when we drew the 16th chit (the final chit by our recent convention of not using the 17th chit).
Pickomino is a new game Marty brought which seemed cool. Unfortunately I got dropped out of the game I was in due to a 1.5 hour phone call with a Polish Esperantist. Sorry for the interruption, folks. Congress business...
Kill Dog continues to be a popular simple short game. Recommended.
