Another Midwest Gaming Classic has come and gone and we did not take nearly enough pictures as this one was the busiest one yet. We entertained countless attendees of the 10-12k who stopped by to chat and play board games as well as video and console games, and pinball machines.

Talked to lots of celebrities, saw lots of cool cosplay, and did lots of unique things that only can happen at a show like this.
Our “Publisher’s Row” got lots of attention and we directed lots of interested gamers to the retail vendors to buy the games they were interested in.

Getting ready for the Midwest Gaming Classic

The Midwest Gaming Classic is the largest gaming convention in Wisconsin with an annual attendance of 10k gamers! Again we’re providing the table-top game library where we loan out games, showcase games, and demo games. Its a big show and takes a lot of preparation so we’ve gotten an early start to all the work…

Publishers! Do we have your latest games in our collection? If not, and you’d like to have us put your game in front of thousands of faces and have it played by hungry gamers, now is the time to contact us to make the arrangements to get them to us!

Game-a-ton now officially cancelled

When it rains it pours. Our venue is in the middle of remodeling the area we were to occupy. It is a very tight time-frame and they are doing the usual wrangling with the city to get things done.

They cannot accommodate us until much later in the calendar year and they suggested we reschedule this event until they  are officially open. 

So we’re cancelling this event for now. Once they venue is open and ready we will reschedule the event again. 

We will be refunding everyone’s badge purchases today, so watch for that.

More Pax

Tomorrow is our last day at Pax so there will be some more sharing of all the MilCoG friends we met again and how our adventures played out. We are spending most of our time in the Gigamic booth volunteering for them because they always donate their awesome abstracts and party games to our library.  

Here is Jamey holding court during a game of Hellapagos, their “cooperative until it isn’t” game.  If you are here stop by to talk to Jamey or Erika! (click pic for link to publisher)
