    Room 330

    Hey All! This year we are going to be changing it up at Expo!This year we will be getting a suite and will have a Few of games, Food and Booz up in the suite! We will be hosting the Pinside Meet and greet 5-8 Pm on Friday so stop on by have a drink (Or two) with us and put faces to the names! I will post up the room number as soon as I know it here as well! Suite will be open off and on most of the weekend and will be stocked with drinks all weekend. So if you cant make the meet and greet stop by. If you want to see if we are upstairs send me a text 303-931-3685.

    If you haven't made it to a GEX suite party you are missing out. They are lots of fun. and a nice way to get into some friendly dollar games and 4 player games away from the noise of the show floor.

    Also the games we are going to have in our room are going to be for sale as discounted show demo games.
    Right now available we have
    Elvira Premium (Sold)
    Jurassic Park Premium
    Deadpool Premium
    Monster Bash SE or CE

    Thanks JJ - I'll be manning my vendor booth during the "official" hours so the "at other times" part is a great extra!

    Thanks for doing this JJ. It was fun to drop in for a bit. Myself and my two buddies enjoyed ourselves a little while. Good to say hello and played a few games with others in attendance. First time that I have met the Gryszzz. We couldn't stay long as we had to drive back Friday night but it was neat to experience a slice of your hospitality.

    Thanks

    Thank you so much for your hospitality!

    #36 1 year ago

    JJ and Game Exchange are awesome for doing these get together at shows. I didn’t stay as long as I would have liked because of space/maneuverability but it was a great setup nonetheless.

    Thanks JJ!

    #37 1 year ago

    Thanks for hosting JJ! Great catching up with everyone.

    #38 1 year ago

    Thanks JJ! My wife and I needed a break from the show a couple of times, and this was perfect.

    #39 1 year ago

    Thanks for the invite -- was fun coming to play a few of your games!

    #40 1 year ago

    Thank you JJ, Friday night and Saturday were great. My nephew really appreciated that he was able to play JP without all of the distractions downstairs. Your hospitality and time is greatly appreciated for doing this for all of us. It was great to meet and talk to everyone who who attended. I’ll bring the Spotted Cow next year.
