    Just got home from expo... many thanks to all who contribute to the fact we even have a show, it’s appreciated! My thoughts...yes attendance was down. Off the top of my head about 30pct. Based on what and when I saw. There were less games to play but they were overall better. Unfortunately not all were on, and some of those that were couldn’t be coined up. Cmon folks, they don’t do any good sitting there, now if they broke while there, I get it. But sometimes one wonders if they’re there just to get a free wristband. The vendor hall was a bit lighter, but more machines in there. There were some screaming deals to be had on stuff tho! I saved more in there on things I needed than I paid to get in. Definitely worth the trip! I didn’t do the tourneys, so can’t comment on that. Saw billy Mitchell and Walter day there, for those who know them. Final take-away... always a blast, worth the 300 mi drive, made some great memories. I am concerned the direction the show is going though. I won’t say it’s going down, it’s just parallel. Where other shows are growing. Concerns me, because I love it. On a side note....saw many more ladies in attendance this year, a nice change in demographics. Best way to get more new games is to grow the base, and quickest way to do that is get the women interested!
