I ran across the idea for this blogfest at The Other Side and decided to participate because it seemed like a good way to back into the groove on posting since work has been keeping all of us so busy lately. At least a few of these topics have been covered in previous posts but here it goes...
The next two questions are answered together because I have only been to one gaming convention so I have minimal experience on the subject.
Best Convention Purchase
I went to the first Conjuration in Tulsa, Oklahoma with my uncle David. I remember being completely captivated by the vendor room. It was like a gaming treasure trove all in one area with swords, books, miniatures, and booths from various game companies. The company that sticks out to me is Steve Jackson Games because I loaded up at their booth with Car Wars, Necromancer, and some dice. I remember being impressed with the quality to cost ratio of their microgames. I would go on to buy many of their other microgames and later buy in to GURPS. It all started with a total purchase price of around $10 or just over. I am still a fan to this day.
Favorite Convention Game
I have never played in a convention game so I can not answer this question.
