Hello there Gamers of the Multiverse!
As you can likely imagine, I had an amazing time this past weekend at the PAX Unplugged Convention. It was a very smooth convention, which made for an extra great experience as my first larger convention. People were kind and inviting, events/lines were conducted well, and the vendors were killer (as were their products)!
I played a bunch of new games, met a ton of fun people, spent too much money on games and swag (& coffee haha), and just ultimately had a really great time. It was a fun new adventure, and I would love to return again next year and do it all again. ^_^ There's not much more I can say about it, but I think a photo collage will certainly do the trick! :D (Be sure to check the captions for more info & feel free to leave me a comment to talk about these games more!)
Enjoy, and as always - Happy Gaming!
I just wanted to announce that I will be headed to the PAX Unplugged convention this weekend in Philadelphia, PA and my excitement is overflowing! Besides being stoked to experience a larger convention (having only gone to GrandCon which is much smaller), I'm excited to share a ton of photos of things I played and my take home haul! :D
BUT! If you love following conventions, can't make it to this, and don't want to wait for the post afterwards, please consider following my journey! I will probably be tweeting and snapping a ton so please feel free to follow me on Twitter or Snapchat (ging_biddy)! I'll be at the convention Friday through Sunday, and in Philly Thursday as well, so I'm hoping to have plenty of gaming adventures to share with you!
In the meantime, Happy Gaming!~
Hey game players and fans!
So, if you did not know, this past weekend there were a bunch of events going on for Extra Life - an awesome charity that raises money for sick kids through 24-hour gaming!
My boyfriend and I ended up going to The Portal game store for some gaming and ended up having such an amazing time! We participated in a game auction, played a board game themed "Who wants to be a Millionaire," met some cool people, played some new games, and even won some raffle items and promo cards/materials! And the best part was, we were also able to donate money to a fantastic cause while getting some cool stuff and having a ton of fun. I'm truly grateful that this hobby has events like this one that allow gamers to give back to the community while doing what they love.
I don't have much more to say about it, I just wanted to share some links to a great charity, and an awesome game store (at least for you gamers in/near CT), and share some pics of our sweet haul!! Hopefully you all get to experience a gaming event like this one soon!!
