Tomorrow morning I’m heading over to Heathrow to catch a flight to Dusseldorf. From there it is just a short train ride to Essen, host city of Spiel, the world’s largest board game convention. (Actually, it’s not just about board games any more, they’ve also got wargames, card games and even comics books).
Technically, I’ll be working all weekend, but I wonder how much it will feel like work. I’m pretty excited. Not only does the convention sound amazing, but it will be the first time I’ve been to Germany (well, the first time I’ve left the airport in Germany anyway).
I’ll be taking the camera, so hopefully I’ll come back with some good photos for the Troll readers.
