So I arrived at the venue at about 9.45 and got in line with everyone else, and eventually got inside at around 10.45 (yes the queue was HUGE!) and quickly began my shopping spree. This year I opted to run around quickly and get what I really wanted first, as I really wanted time later to play some games this year. So I went on my spree, snapping the odd photo as I went, and even caught the “Beasts of War” guys doing an interview.
It was shortly after this point where Clint and I separated, and I found the first game I would play that day. The game was “Get to the Choppa!” a simple game based on the original Predator film, where our characters had to make their way through the jungle to the awaiting helicopter, while avoiding the predator.
I was a mere 10” away before my characters head was blown off, and though no one made it to the Choppa!!! the game was tons of fun.
Shortly after the game finished, I noticed it had just gone 1pm, so I quickly made my way over, just in time to meet up with the other bloggers. Again there was a great turn out, and even though I sadly I didn’t get the chance to talk to everyone there, It was great to see everyone again.
After the meeting, more shopping and more pics were taken as I wandered around, until I came to a zombie participation game! I thought id have some of that, and quickly managed to wangle my way into a game. The game used the Akula’s AR:SE rules and was being run by a young fellow (probably somewhere between 12-15 years old) who had never ran a game at a show before. Here’s some pics of the game.
Well safe to say, he did a great job on running the game, as the next hour or so was a complete blast, and I would have happily stayed and played a second game had it not been the end of the day and a need to finish my shopping list.
So that was my day in a nutshell and as I mentioned before, I did take some pics of other things on my travels, though I think I’ll wait and give you all a nice pic heavy post next time.
