Car ride up - Mole, Toad, Rat, and Badger speed away from a heist amidst chaos and confusion
Out of Dodge is a four-player, RPG about four criminals escaping from a botched heist. I won't go too deep into this one, but it was fun and made for an interesting car ride up. We were quoting things said in this session through the weekend, so I'd say it had a lasting impression.

The early bird gets the worm. We got Armada... sort of.We arrived on site after registration and the vendor hall had closed. Most of us had pre-registered, so that wasn't a terrible loss. However, that meant we would not be able to participate in any of the games this evening (I don't think any of us anticipated getting there in time to play any of the PEL events anyway).
We walked around and surveyed the games being played.
After a while, we settled back into the main exhibit hall, found a few tables and chairs and setup a game of Star Wars: Armada to show some of the guys in our group that had not yet played it. Call it excitement or anticipation for the con, but this hardly got up and running amidst all of the chatter. A few turns were played and I think it was beneficial for those looking to learn more about it.
It was definitely after midnight (I think after 1am) at this point and we had not even seen the hotel room yet, so we headed back that way. We had a big day ahead of us...
