Regardless of how many cons you are lucky enough to attend, a common after-affect of the con is...well often some Con-Crud (for NTRPG 2022 it seems like it's Covid), but that's not my point today. Instead, what I'm talking about is post-con letdown. For many it's the simple result of days of fun with friends slinging dice, having fun, and generally being "on" possibly for days at a time.
I'm sure there are distinct differences based on how introverted or extroverted a gamer is, but every year I hear about, and personally experience post-con letdown.
What can you/we do about this?
The best thing I've figured out, at least for me, is a three-fold approach:
- I do a quick AAR (After-Action Review....I am a vet, so this is a learned thing)
- I figure out what I want to do at next year's con
- I start making my plans for next year (start implementing crap from #2)
