I had a great time. I got to meet up with some old friends, met some new friends and "met" people in person that I have only talked to on social media.
Wednesday night we played Baker Street with author and designer +Bryce Whitacre. It was so much fun. My kids had a blast with it. Expect a full review soon.
Every night we played Ravenloft, the classic I6 module. I used the fifth edition conversion I found, but I am suspecting now after playing 5e for a bit that 5e characters and bit stronger than their 1e counterparts.

I even got my original module from 1983 signed by Tracy Hickman.
We got in an RPGA/DDI game as well and a few others. Most were good, but we also had two clunkers. ProTip: When you are demoing a game and the one image looks like another, but different meaning image, don't throw your graphic designer under the bus. It makes YOU look bad.
I also got to meet in person John and Matt of ODAM Publishing. I didn't hit their booth in time to grab a book, but the copy they had left looked fantastic.
More on what I did pick up later.
