Video games and music 24 hours a day for 3 days. The marketplace sucks, the arcade is alright, the music is awesome! And NES homebrew guys show up so you can probably play some Commie Killer.

I'd be there for marketplace so totally not my thing. Thanks for heads up 馃憤

I've been going for the past 5 years. Demoed my Indie game there last year in the awesome indie game section.

I should hear back by early next week if the game got accepted again, if it does i'll be booking my flights right away.

Do you need perler beads, anime聽tchotchkes, and $30聽loose Famicom commons though??

Yeah, while the marketplace leaves a lot to be desired, the rest of the con is top notch.

I鈥檝e tried on 2 occasions to get mag to have a video game swap meet with only attendees and not dealers but got shot down cause it was said it competed with the merchants hall.... I should try again since there are only like less than a handful of vendors there who sell games now.聽Though we could have one with the people here, I guess.?

I'll be there! I have been giving lecture panels for a few years now. We are planning one now, and I'll probably sit on another one or two, depending on where I can be most useful contributing.聽

MAG is one of those expos you really need to attend at least once to appreciate. Really lucky to live so close to it. 馃檪

Yeah, MAGFest is my favorite convention overall for sure. 24 hours a day of stuff to do (and stuff you dont find at other conventions), nice venue/area, pretty good guests.

Vendor floor sucks if you are looking for just games, but there is a -lot- of other fun stuff that I think is worth while (it is a pretty good sized vendor floor overall).

I鈥檒l be there since I鈥檓 just across the river. Marketplace isn鈥檛 as good as some of the other expos and cons but at the same time it checks all the required boxes.

I like it for the strong homebrewer presence, got to meet a bunch of you in person and nerd out over your games.
