Penny Arcade Expo

25 Aug

I’m heading out to the Penny Arcade Expo in Bellevue shortly. w00t!

Here’s a promising-looking PAX 2006 blog at Gamehelper.

…and here’s a PAX 2006 Flickr photoset from I Am Adam.

I tried to set up mobile blogging to Rockett Science from my Virgin Mobile Snapper earlier today, but it doesn’t seem to be doing anything. Feh.

If it magically starts working (or if I figure out what I’m doing wrong), I’ll try to post from the Expo during the weekend.

    Word is that they’ve moved the boardgaming area off-site this year.

    Can you do me a small favor? I hope to talk Asmodee into exhibiting there next year – if it’d be worthwhile.

    What are you going to see there? I’m still toying myself with the idea of going down for the Warmachine events, although I’ll probably stay home and save my money for the Annual Blowing of Money at Bumbershoot.

    Eric – Yes, the tabletop games are at the nearby Red Lion Hotel. There’s a shuttle running between it at Meydenbauer. The FAQ in my booklet says that in 2007 the whole shebang is moving to the much larger Washington State Convention and Trade Center downtown.

    So you just want me to check out the tabletop area and see if it’s worthwhile for Asmodee to show? Anything specific I should be looking for besides bodies, vendors, and perceived level of enthusiasm??

    Jim – Right now I’m focused on the panels, specifically “PR and the game community” and the “new media” ones. Beyond that, I don’t have any plans besides wandering around like a slack-jawed n00b. Let me know if you’re going to be there!

    (I also want to see Gabe and Tycho which apparently means standing in huge lines.)

    Man, I have NO MONEY AT ALL this weekend. Drag.

    Bodies, Vendors and perceived enthusiasm about sums it up.
