GenCon! I have gotten my First Exposure Playtesting Hall tables and time slots requested and sent in my game names and descriptions. Here is a copy of my request for the 2017 FEPH. Please forgive the formatting.

On the Bus: On the Bus is a "take that" board game for three to six players. You’ve ridden on a bus, right? You’ve been crammed in with a bunch of people who seem to go out of their way to annoy you. They’re loud. They carry bulky things that get into your personal space. Maybe they smell … unique. You can’t wait for the ride to be over. Not this time! Get On the Bus for a trip filled with strategy and fun, where you have the power to change your seat, move other passengers, or even kick them off the bus.
POTUS SOS: POTUS SOS is a frenzied escape-the-board game for two to six players. Just a quiet getaway in the forest. But a nuclear power plant, dark matter research facility, genetic engineering complex, and mother nature have other plans. Now all the cute little forest creatures are mutants, hell bent on destroying the leader of our nation. Can you save the President from the animal horde? Using skill, cunning, and lots of bullets, get POTUS out of the forest before it’s too late!
City Park: City Park is a relaxing card-laying game for one to four players. A calming walk through the park is nice… but what if you could design the park? City Park is a unique card-laying game designed for up to four players. You can even play it as a solo challenge. The city has cleared a neighborhood lot with plans to turn it into a brand-new park, with paths, statues, fountains, a playground, maybe even a pond. Playing requires simultaneous cooperation and competition with your other players. What will your park look like when the game’s over? Every game is different!

I have been figuring out some more of what to bring and what to do at GenCon as well. Anne has been helping me out A LOT with that. She is very helpful to me!
I have been to a new board game meetup, which was awesome.
I have held another playtesting meetup and a total of 7 people were there! We had to split up into two groups! That was cool.
I have been working with a guy on the rules for On the Bus and POTUS SOS.
I have spoken two a few artists and hired one to do a box cover for an upcoming game, Following Dante'.
I have redone a lot of my artwork for On the Bus and POTUS SOS. Which maybe I should attach here as well. I put it over there on the right side...
