  1. Looks like you had fun. Wish I lived closer to the east coast.

  2. I’m thinking that I’m too shy and socially awkward to ever enjoy something like this. The fancy dinners with a large group, playing games in a convention setting, etc. Just not my scene. But I’m glad to see you had a wonderful time!

  3. Seemed like a great event ! Would have loved to participate🫢

  4. It looked like so much fun…I really need to go to a CON

  5. This looks like great fun. I've never been to any convention before and have always wanted to go to one. This looks like it might be the one I finally go to.

  6. Love seeing so many of my favorite content creators playing together, looks you guys had an absolute blast!

  7. Looks like a very nice weekend, nice people and many many games. I’m jealous.

  8. Great video, hopefully we can attend next year.

  9. I would love to go to this sometime. Going to GenCon as I can really only go to one big con a year (and this is within driving distance which helps with the cost!).

  10. That looked like so much fun, I'm still kicking myself for sleeping on Moonrakers

  11. Wow this is my first video of yours. Amazing work and you really make it look easy. Cheers

  12. Can't wait until we can go to our first board game convention/event! Hopefully in the next year!

  13. Late to the video, but it was awesome to meet you and game together, Jenna. Hope we get the chance to play more at GenCon!

  14. Wow! The retreat looked like such a blast, I’m really hoping I will be able to start attended some in the near future! keep up the great work Jenna, I love how far the channel has already come! 😁

  15. Really like those shots of the Crokinole game!

  16. This looks like it would have been a blast to attend…I wish I could have been there.

  17. Came here from @ShelfClutter and now I’m adding another subscription to my ‘to see list’ 😀

  18. What was the second game, after Heat but before Moonrakers?

  19. I'm a backer for Let's Go, Japan! Can't wait to play it!

  20. Thank you for adding the game titles. It's very helpful!

  21. I wanted to go this year but didn't work out with my schedule. Hoping to go next. How was it compared to Breakout Con? And thanks for the vlog to give me an idea of what's it like for the event!

  22. Ahh! It was so cool to meet you – and so many other wonderful folks this year at the Level Up retreat. I'm still pinching my self – did that all really happen!? So many games, not enough coffee! Playing Kanban with you and Stacie was my hilight too! You're a superstar Jenna, thank you for sharing your passion and enthusiasm with us. 😊🙌

  23. Hey Jenna, It was great meeting you at LevelUp. I may not be the photog that you are, but I hope the Garden group pictures turned out ok. I tried to take a lot for you to work with. I hope to see you again someday. You are a great person to hang out and play some games with.

  24. It was so nice to relive the experience through your Vlog. Serious congrats to you for being among the first Special Guests at the first Level Up Retreat!
    I cracked up when you did the close up on Adam because, well, that's his thing. It was a great time and yes, the after-con blues are fo real. I've been wandering around my house looking for people to play games with. Where did everyone go? (note: do not water the succulent. It's more like an air plant 😆)

  25. It was great meeting you and gaming with you. I can’t believe how fast you got the vlog out! Thanks for making Level Up such a great experience!

  26. It was SO great to meet you Jenna!!! Loved this Vlog!!!!!❤️❤️❤️❤️

  27. Jenna, I thank you kindly for posting this video.
    Very nice of you to show us a few games/boards throughout your video, and you showing us around the gaming hall (tables, games, players, etc) was very well done. Am hoping that I build up enough courage to attend gaming conventions in the years to come.
    Well done. !!!

  28. I'm so happy you had a great time! 😍 It looked so fun, all the games and wonderful people. ❤ Thank you for charing, love the video! 🥰

  29. Thanks for documenting this for those in the community that couldn't make it. Lovely vlog. And love your tag line at the end.

  30. Great recap! Thanks for resurfacing those memories 😂😅!!
    But most of all thanks for making the journey a lot more fun!

  31. Thanks for sharing your experiences at Level Up! My wife and I weren't able to make it this year, but I'm really hoping we'll be able to go next year! It looks like a super fun and welcoming con!

  32. It was great meeting you and playing some games together! Great video!!

  33. this was so fun to watch i love your vlogs jenna!! THAT NEW MERCH THOUGH

  34. It was delightful meeting you, and getting to play a game together! (Even if you made my visit to Japan so extremely expensive. :P) Hope we get to play something else fun and exciting next year, too! And, as other commenters noted, looking forward to seeing how the group Garden photo came out. Happy gaming!

  35. So fun to relive the weekend through your lens! It was so great to finally meet you and look forward to seeing you again at GenCon ❤🎉

  36. Crokinole with Jenna! The best 🙌🏻

  37. Canadian comes to America, learns one of Canada's oldest Board Game. Looks like an unbelievable weekend and event. Glad you had so much fun.

  38. First time playing crokinole? Do you even Canada bro?

  39. 18:24 hey! You can’t stand up from your seat when playing the crok!

  40. Careful Jenna. If you get a crokinole board you might not play a board game for a few months! Don’t ask me how I know 😅

  41. it was such a great time playing games with everyone – really enjoyed the smaller con with the relaxed atmosphere and open play
