I've done something right - my daughter wants to go to this convention over her birthday weekend (she's turning 11 this year). We went to a day of a similar convention last summer, and she played a game of Puerto Rico at a table with five adults. She did ok - came in a close third in a low scoring game. She liked it when the winner asked the 4th and 5th place finishers "How does it feel to lose to a 10 year old?" So, we are going to go to Timonium in November and play in the PR tourney. It should be a good time.
