Default Games-Day 2008

These are the dates for the (US) Games-Day this year. I'm wondering who all is going and who's not. I know I'm definateling going to the Games-Day Baltimore, it's only about an hour drive away! ;D

Baltimore - 6/14/08
Chicago - 7/26/08
Los Angeles - 8/23/08

Who else on TO might be there? Maybe we could meet up.

Course, this topic isn't just about the US Games-Days, ya'll can talk about them in general. I've got a couple questions, like what's it like at one and stuff.

Indeed, I'll be bringing a table to Gamesday Canada this year. Like usual, I'll offer it up as a TO meeting place. In previous years I've hung out with Korik, Fishy and Mothman amongst others at GD.

Ack! I totally'd go, except for the fact Canadia's a bit too far away for me. :-\

What're they like? Big? Noisy?

There aren't any stereotypical conventions goers IE Fat man dressed up like a daemonette is there?

"I went to Games-Day Baltimore and all I got was this lousy t-shirt." :P

I hear Forge World's there, but is it cheaper to get FW stuff from them then or order it? I figure it'd be cheaper, but I could be very, very wrong.

Well, we are hoping to run a table at GW Birmingham this year, and its my turn to be on it (avoided the last 2 times).

So any TO brits are welcome to pop down, but ours isn't till September.

Cheaper because there's no shipping or import taxes.

That's what I was thinking! Oh yeah, 3 months allowance bye bye! I mean, it's better to own a bunch of IA books and some kick A models than some DS games I'll probably play once or twice.

I would go to GD Baltimore as I live in Montgomery County, but I'm away :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(. So I am going to GD Chicago as I've never been before and I really want to go.

Dude that's awesome. Do you go to the Complete Strategist in Falls Church? (or is that too far away? ??? I just moved up here so I don't know)
