So, Geekway 2021.

We played 25 games, only repeating one, and all new to us.

It was the first large event I’ve been to since March 2020. Everyone was required to be vaccinated and wear masks when playing games, so I felt reasonably comfortable.

The swag was pretty great — a challenge coin that glows in the dark, a set of 3 custom anodized D6 in a metal case, and a really awesome board game bag.

We didn’t win any door prizes, but my wife and I did each win a play-and-win game. We got Blossoms and Holi, both of which we enjoyed quite a bit.
