Dear God, could a few of you guys cut back on the tree before you enter the main hall? I had at least 4 occasions where I damn near choked from the overpowering smell by guys looking over my shoulder while playing. Are you guys smoking it or dancing around a bonfire fueled by weed?

On the plus side, overall hygiene seemed better this year and more ladies present. It's good to see more than just a bunch of chubby middle-aged white guys in the room!

I didn't realize it grew on trees.

Based on what I know...BOTH.

Keep it up Labnip. Great thread!

#512 2 years ago

Next time you go to the donut shop, tell them to heat up a ham and cheese crescent. You will feel better later in the day.

Anything would be better than those things they call donuts.

The coffee was passable though.

I honestly don't know if this is supposed to mean it's good or bad.

#524 2 years ago

That's a rousing endorsement in Tejas, IIRC

Quoted from Cheeks:

Kicks. He meant kicks.

#526 2 years ago

Or maybe it's a surprise feature?

Wow!! Dyslectic staff?
There is no excuse for that stuff?

I'm not sure. Can anyone confirm his affinity or aversion to tossing salad? We must get to the "bottom" of this opinion.

Between this and the "reinforcment" on Ghostbusters it's like come on guys, seriously? Jersey Jack should have pointed it out at the tour, lol.

#537 2 years ago

So will Dialed In, BM66 & Alien make it over into the Vendor Room today for all to play???

#538 2 years ago

Will Big Lebowski be in the vendor hall?

#539 2 years ago

Big Lebowski is in the vendor hall, right flipper was sticking last night, they said they will look into last night. Enjoy

#540 2 years ago
Quoted from labnip:

New shirt, ohhhh wait !!

Oh I want one of them there shirts. Any possible way you could get me an email to order one pleeeez.

#541 2 years ago
Quoted from TK2012:

Also, that game is an upgraded proto, not up to the state of production games. So, take it with a grain of salt if considering a purchase basee on it.

Everyone's having a blast.
So much going on and being announced, there's not enough time to do everything.

Totally good call coming this year.

Thanks for all the pics, labnip!

Have you seen Rob Anthony's vending table? Any chance you could take a pic? He bought a bunch of my TV's for TZ, TAF, GB, and FG, and I'd like to see how he has them displayed.

Thanks!
