Pax East 2011

We headed to Pax East 2011 at the Boston Convention center this past weekend to take in all the sights. We headed down on Saturday and Sunday and had a great time. Saturday was our first day at the Con and there was alot to see. We walked in got our swag bags, and even with over 70,000 people in the hall the first person we saw was Ben from Troll In the Corner. We said hello heard about how his Friday was and then setup a time to meet for some gaming in the open gaming area. The convention was huge, there was a lot to take in. We searched high and low and finally found the coat check, checked our coats and then it was on. Heading into the main exhibit hall we were instantly greeted by Geek Chic and their amazing gaming tables, along with lots of lights and sounds from all the video game booths. Taking our time we walked up and down each row and soaked everything in. After walking around the hall for a bit we headed over to the Tabletop Gaming Library. The Tabletop library was open to all Pax attendes and was well stocked with all the best board, card, and roleplaying games. You just find a game you want to play, check it out by giving them you photo ID, and then find people to play with.

I attended the Scene @ 5 tonight at The Music Hall in Portsmouth, NH. It was a great event and it was cool listening to all of the performers. I was there for three performances and they all were enjoyable and had different styles that were their own. Check out the (long) Vid of local group The Attic Bits: The Video on TwitCasting!

Video Game Trade Ins

As I was organizing my DVDs/Video Games over the winter break I found a few that I know had not played or touched in years. I decided it was time to get rid of them so I loaded up a bag and brought them over to my local GameStop. Some games I got a decent price for, but some only warranted .55 cents or so. Geez to think I payed $50+ for some of these and they are now worth next to nothing. I also found out though blind luck that Best Buy is not doing game trade ins. They give a better price for popular games than GameStop from what my research shows. I added a tip to the local Portsmouth Best Buy’s Foursquare profile to help others find this out. Add it to your to-do list today! Check out more about the program which also takes old electronics too at http://www.bestbuytradein.com/ Now to see if I have anything else to get rid of to make room for more board games.. Share...
