Hey all! Wow, this has been a huge year for events! We’ve got 13 under our belt after wrapping up Pandoracon, and boy, we put way more effort into Pandoracon than the others. Now, that’s not to say that the others weren’t work, of course they were, but we really put in the extra mile on this one…
This game room (dubbed the “Wraith Games Retro Game Cave”) featured NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube, Wii, Wii U, PS1, PS2, Dreamcast, Xbox, and Xbox 360 games (sorry Genesis fans, we couldn’t find our Genesis cords!) as well as tournaments for Smash Bros Wii U, Soulcalibur 2 and 4, and Halo 2 and 3! These tournaments actually went into the convention’s “house points tournament” (think the Hogwarts House Cup from Harry Potter). It was all really awesome!
In addition, we offered a VR demo and had our Radarkanoid arcade cabinet running in the room as well. Our artist Lance T. Miller and his wife also set up a booth in the room to sell some of his famous Bicycle-licensed steampunk playing cards and fantasy art. They really meshed well with the whole aesthetic of Pandoracon, for obvious reasons!
With all of this going on, it was really tough trying to make it all work. There were many times throughout the weekend where nothing should have worked, but thanks to my wonderful team (with little to no help from me) everything went off incredibly smoothly. This weekend we were nearly all hands on deck, only missing 4 team members (and having 3 additional people help out to make up for it) and boy did we need it. To be honest, though, Pandoracon really showed that we could do more stuff like this in the future!
Well, this is the last event for the year! It’s time for us to take a much deserved rest (well, from traveling, at least). We should have TONS of new Collapsus news here soon, as well as a follow-up to our “If We’re Being Pressed” article and “The Lost Interview” article! So we’ll see what we have going on in the weeks to come…
See you then!
