    Places To Eat Near Reapercon

    We really enjoyed Cheddar's. Although the first time we went there (Friday, dinner, I think) we ended up walking back and going to Houlihan's due to the local dinner rush and walked away. We went back Saturday Lunch and got right in. Speaking of Houlihan's, we ended up eating there ... ahem ... 4 times in a row for dinner. Unintended, but it was convenient for the group dinners we (very happily) got pulled into. We ate something different each time, their bartenders were pretty good (and got a great recommendation for a good Scotch), and service was consistent each night. While I can't recommend anyone eat at any chain restaurant 4 nights in a row (and hope to not repeat this year given some of the great options above), I can say that we did pretty well with it. This year we're hoping to stock some goodies in the room for lunches and take our food bill down a bit, and move around a little more for dinners.

    D&D at ReaperCon?

    I have threatened to bring Shadows of Brimstone, which is more of a dungeon crawl than a board game but it's not an RPG either.

    So... who's ready for ReaperCon 2019?

    This week was model prep for 1 of my 4 (projected) RC19 entries. Am starting with the diorama. Am moving slowly, but took advantages of cure times and got a head start on this project while other subassemblies cure (tabletop project). This evening I pinned and filled one of the minis, could be in primer tomorrow. The box of scenery and mud arrived this week, and I might stop by Lowe's tomorrow for a chunk of hardwood (base) and raid the attic for some blue foam for the terrain.
  5. I attended last year for the first time and will +1 @Pegazus's advice. Read a bit here in this folder, but the first and most important step is ... show up! :)

    Hobby Hijinx Corner 2019

    Mrs. Zoxe and I can help, and will have a car - so even if it's making food runs to keep @Ludo and others well fortified.

    ReaperCon 2019 tickets

    Chips and salsa, chex mix, cheese cubes, maybe popcorn seems to be en vogue these days with Embassy Suites' Manager's Reception (nationwide, not just Denton).

    ReaperCon 2019 tickets

    Me too! Buying a set for Mrs. Zoxe as well as myself. Survey only asked us once for which faction. I was able to edit the names on each ticket after the sale completed.

    So... who's ready for ReaperCon 2019?

    We came to Denton last year for the first time, and I didn't have anything ready to submit (had just crashed to get to Gencon submissions a few weeks prior, the thought of kicking off something new was ... not practical, hah. :) ). This year I'm planning at least 3 entries, including - like you - my first diorama. Fresh back from Adepticon, I'm all full of nerd enthusiasm and have had a productive week at the bench. Clearing some stuff off for our gaming campaign, then hopefully full-on Gencon and Reapercon submissions in a few weeks. Then I went to order my diorama terrain supplies and found that the small business I planned to try is offline until almost Memorial Day for several consecutive conventions, and I imagine some well deserved time off. But sent me into a mild panic because if I round up, that's June!

    I officially have primer on one of my Reapercon entries. No idea what to paint next, how to base it, or what the color scheme should be, but I have primer down!
  11. Yup! That's them, and why I asked. Glad to hear they've been contacted, hope they have time and ability to jump in.
  12. I don't know if this would be their thing, but is DGS Games on the radar at all?

    I saw WinCo on google maps too. Missed it last year but admittedly didn't venture too far east of the Embassy Suites. We'll most likely have a car again this year; thoroughly enjoyed last year's road trip south. Hopefully we can get in a little earlier; last year we basically walked in and went straight to pizza on Wednesday. I also saw something on google maps called a Killer's Tacos that apparently serves Tacos and Beer. Those are two of my favorite food groups!

    I'm curious what pops up around the hotel too. IHOP sounds yummy. We've been talking about how we'll approach this year. Last year we didn't leave the convention center very much, and ended up eating at Houlihan's quite a bit (which we enjoyed). This year, I vowed to find a grocery store after we check in and make better use of the room's fridge and kitchenette. For lunches, I'll happily eat PBJ or a quick sandwich after the mega-breakfast (and save some $$ for the vendor hall).

    2019 ReaperCon Hotel Information

    I used the link on the ReaperCon FB page, not the older Reaper page. Worked great, we've got a room!
