Quoted from Whysnow:
You should come back and BRING a game.
MGC being crowded is the reality of being a good show. However, the tourney lines are not crowded on Friday as the VIP event is limited space. The main tourney is easy to play through as limited entries on a handfull of games.
If you bring a game then you get full acess to the after party which is more room than you could ever need and you can play to your hearts content till the wee hours.
Vendor tent was just fine. They have improved that vastly over the first year.
Things get better every year with MGC! Come back over to check it out.
I've sold at the tent the past two years. I will agree that it is done as well as they can and they do improve. I do feel bad for the guy in charge of the tent though, the last MGC the tent frosted over and started dripping on tables. No way to prepare for that or to stop it. Guy had his hands full with that for sure.
