Slept in until about 10, and then we toddled off to the Renfaire. Highlights of the day were Johnny Fox, Hack & Slash, Swami Yohmahmi, Horsemen, Bear-baiting and Witch Trial, and time at the Kadon games building again. BHK and I swapped off on taking pictures with the new camera - viewable here.
BHK got pulled into participation on two shows, as well - As Hack's Mom in the Cruel and Unusual Show, and face-spike examiner (she got to keep the spike - eww) at the Swami's. Also obtained was a Swami Yo sticker.
We looked at quite a few boardgames, but none grabbed us hard enough for an immediate purchase. I was a little disappointed in Y, (it seemed a bit limited) but Star may have some longer-term potential - maybe a bit too much like go, though. I'd say that my favorite of the wooden games so far is still Quintillions- I'm tempted to make my own set as well as purchase the original from the source. The Kadon people have some nifty plastic art/ game boards... I wouldn't mind commissioning a custom 8x8 volcano-type one with a frosted transparent bottom for playing sleestak/pylon icehouse games.
Food Sampled at the Fair by BHK and/or me -
Mac & Cheese on a stick.
BBQ Turkey on a bun (BHK only)
Deep-fried Oreos (I wonder how many days-worth of calories *that* was?)
Broccoli Cheese Soup in a bread bowl
[edit: Chocolate covered cheesecake on a stick!]
A ton of water / diet pepsi
Went right from the Rennfest to the in-laws for supper... like we could eat anything after all of that stuff... still, I managed a plate, sans seconds.
