As promised, I kept track of the woot shirts I saw people wearing at TotalCon, a board game/RPG convention here in Massachusetts. It wasn't quite as much of a shirt-woot-rich environment as I expected, but I did see at least one every day!
I wore: Do Not Pass Go
I saw: He'll Probably Be Okay - which will now go down in my personal history as The First Woot Shirt I Ever Saw Someone Other Than Myself Wearing
I wore: In the Library With the Wrench - I got a lot of comments on this one; people seemed to really dig it. One guy even said "Hey, you're wearing a woot shirt!" He was wearing a Settlers of Catan shirt at the time, but said that he has several woot shirts and his favorite is "The Binge".
I saw: Click or Treat - I had another conversation about woot shirts with the guy who was wearing it, too.
I wore: They Call Me... Tim - I had run out of board-game-related shirts by this point, but I figured this would serve just as well to show my geek cred.
I saw: The Binge - Finally! In spite of this being the most popular woot shirt, I've never seen anyone wearing it before. I spotted it on a guy at the hotel's breakfast buffet, which I thought was kind of apropos. And it wasn't the same person who told me on Friday that it was his favorite woot shirt, so I now know firsthand that at least two people own it.
Life Choices - This one really stands out in person! I spotted it from pretty far away, so I didn't get a chance to say anything to the woman who was wearing it.
Also on Saturday, I made it to the semi-finals of the regional qualifiers for the national Settlers of Catan tournament! That was way better than I was expecting to do, and even though I knew I'd get crushed in the semi-finals (and did), it was still really exciting! Err... what was that I said about geek cred? *gigglesnorts, pushes glasses up nose*
I saw: Odd Bear Out - I happened to spot this in the hallway, worn by the guy who was sporting "Click or Treat" on Friday. He was a big guy, too - more proof that burly men can totally pull off woot shirts with adorable animals on them!
Sadly, my boyfriend got a really bad case of food poisoning on Saturday night, so we didn't end up doing anything at the con on Sunday (although a friend who was there with us did win the Stone Age tournament they were holding!). I don't remember what shirt I wore, but I don't think I bothered dipping into my shirt.woot stash just to go back and forth from the hotel room to the car. I might have missed out on a woot shirt or two that day, but it was cool to spot as many as I did over the rest of the weekend!
BTW, for anyone who lives in southern New England (and not necessarily even that close - I know people came from Maine and Albany, and probably further away too) and enjoys board games or RPGs, I highly recommend TotalCon! It's relatively cheap and TONS of fun.
