I wish this were a story, but it is true.  I have to admit--I smiled a lot as I fell asleep last night.  <br /><br /><br />Widseth

<br /><br />A true story is even better.<br />The magic is in the telling, tho!<br />It wouldn't have read nearly so well this way: "My grandkids came over and wanted to trade tokens with me while I was napping. Swap some boots, reds for purps, and gold chips for plats. Man they were cute."<br /><br />You pull the reader into the action, and weave a scene so vivid you can almost hear the clunk of chips as they fall against each other, being sorted by small fingers.

<br />That would be SoCal of 2004 when the madness started and I'm just a comparatively little fish, but hooked none the less.<br /><br /><br />Widseth<br />

<br /><br />Ditto - SoCal 04 - when I talked my team into buying a Dungeon Pack!

I'm fairly certain it was at SoCal 2004 for me as well.  This makes me sad, since this upcomingt weekend would have been SoCal 2007!  Waaahh!!<br />

2005 for me.  First GenCon, first TD, first token.<br /><br />You know what they say, once to go token, your wallet is broken.

Great scene, Widseth.  Thank you for sharing.<br /><br />My first time at Gen Con and True Dungeon was 2006.  I started out as a FT Vol.  It was a very unique and enjoyable experience.<br />I believe the addition started then.  I *splurged* for a $250 purchase.  I traded away my DSS for some Elixers and other goodies.  I decided I needed more tokens - for a better chance of survival.  While the first $250 order was well outside realms of sanity for me, I bought yet another $250 purchase.  Nuts!  Crazy!<br /><br />Well, that snowballed and now I'm trying to figure out what I can sell so I can afford more tokens.  :)<br /><br />Welcome to the Addiction.
