    Quoted from vidgameseller:

    That would be neat, but Christopher and I worked our ass off to do our part, along with a couple great friends. If we are doing that many again, Ill have to get more help. Its just so much work setting up all the games that we did. IF CGC lets us do show games again, ill be on board, especially if the new title is allowed

    I can come a day early and help you guys. Just keep me posted as I will need to put in the PTO.

    Getting excited for next MGC. With Texas and this being so close, I had to make a decision. MGC won!

    Quoted from pinzrfun:

    Not usually. My experience with shows on Sunday is half empty floors and games headed out the door.

    please dont generalize MGC with other shows.

    The vast majority of stuff will be there until the show closes (assuming it is like the past 2 years)

    Quoted from phlip_phanatic:

    Thinking of bringing my whole family this year, but the only day that works for us is Sunday.
    Is it worth it to go on Sunday?

    100% worth going on Sunday. Pre-buy your tickets to save time. Go early to get in line before doors open.

    have a blast!

    Quoted from phlip_phanatic:

    I'm sure it's the terms of the deal. Buy a game at a discount, leave it on until EOD Sunday, then take it home. If you can't adhere to the terms, don't buy the game.
    Seems simple to me.

    Yup. If you can’t do those terms then you don’t get show deal pricing. I am sure kingpin and other vendors can sell you a NIB for pick up at the show and a parking lot deal, but expect to pay regular price

    Quoted from CKrueger:

    I'm glad the cancellation got handled in the best way possible for MGC. I have one question remaining: What's the best things I can do as an attendee and game-bringer to help MGC out while they pick up the pieces and regroup for next year?
    I presume I can let them keep the ticket and let them off the hook. I assume that also applies for Tom Taylor's event? I'm cool with that. If I needed the cash I spent on the show that badly, I wouldn't have went in the first place.
    Also, my email from MGC mentioned we might be able to buy show t-shirts. I'm ready to do that as soon as MGC is ready. I'll take as much stuff as I can; I'll figure it's like those crazy "Super Bowl Winning Buffalo Bills" shirts that get shipped off to charities, and I'll be the coolest kid at league with my "MGC 2020" shirt.
    As much as we're all bummed that we don't get to go to the show, please spare a thought for MGC's organizers, and cut them slack as they figure out what to do. This is a bummer weekend for us. It's a bummer YEAR for them.

    I am looking fwd to buying both MGC and TPF shirts and swag! Happy to support both great shows. Hope they sell lots of it to help buffer the burden.
