Only ONE USA Games Day this year?

Rate this Entry

Well, the rumors circulating for a couple of weeks were now given form on the Bells of lost Souls. No substance yet, but considering last year rumors about the LA Games day I am afraid we might end up with a single Games day.

    Thank God, I've been praying for consolidated GW events schedules for years. Back when there were only a couple of shows per year they were high quality events with lots of cool stuff going on, and the painting competitions were a lot "deeper" if you know what I mean. There's been some pretty weak categories some years, something Atlanta was pretty famous for.

    I am worried that there won't be one in Canada, simply because I'd rather spend a week in Toronto than go to Chicago, Baltimore or LA. I know people there!

    Anyway I think they should have a Games Day in Vegas, the GW Managers have had some pretty epic meetings there over the years and I just think it would be a fun place to hang out before/after the show. Plus it's dirt cheap for flights/hotels there.

    Well, I agree that 4 demons per year is too many but 1 is too few. THis is simply population and geography consideration. The USA is not UK or France it is just a bit too big and for many people spending $400-500 for intercontinental flight will be prohibitive. Yes, you will have more people on a consolidated event then on 4 different once, but you will not have 4 times more people.

    I don't think they are canceling Toronto, but I will bug some people for info.

    Of course it will be prohibitive for some people, but so is going to the movies on the weekend. Personally I would rather have an event worth going to instead of a cheap one that isn't very enjoyable. After attending the Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) this year I have a much lower opinion of Games Day than before. There are much better ways to run events, and the scale/quality could be MUCH higher if they focus on fewer, better events rather than many weaker ones. Anyway we always did just fine in Canada with one Games Day, and we're geographically larger.
