    Quoted from mikepin:

    Really. I remember Seeing Charlie at his booth at Expo and a bunch of us playing Dominos.

    Quoted from epthegeek:

    Wasn't a spooky specific booth, he was sharing space with someone else who had a booth.

    Ahh, that makes sense.

    Quoted from Eric_S:

    So, how is that vendor list coming along?

    Looks like we will find out next Thursday.

    I had a great time Thursday and Friday. Thanks to all who brought games from the free play area to vendors and companies that make Pinballs, all the vendors, expo staff, ExpoBrawl staff. No reason for anyone to complain. It was my 8th or 9th Expo and I had just as good of a time as my first.

    Quoted from DanQverymuch:

    No responses, I'll take that as a good sign. I could never tolerate the stress levels he must endure to pull off that show.

    A modest proposal: An AI controlled drone with facial recognition could be employed to track how long someone is at each game, and whether anyone is waiting to play. As pundits are worried about AI "taking over" using advanced intelligence someday, surely it is possible to make these drones smart enough to discern whether a game is multiplayer and that anyone waiting is simply waiting their turn. If an infringement is taking place, the drone could deploy a banner with chasing lights that reads "GAME HOG!" or somesuch. If this embarrassment fails to make the violator modify his behavior, it could escalate the countermeasures, perhaps with a bright spotlight in the player's face to render him unable to see well enough to play. A player could keep playing in defiance of that however, probably not well but just in spite, so at this point the drone would have no option but to render the perpetrator unable to continue with a paralyzing dart. When the miscreant awakens to find other players standing above and around him playing the game, it is hoped he will realize the error of his ways and meekly inquire as to whether he can join the current player in the next game, but please, allow him get some paper towels to mop this up in the meantime.

    Saw him a few times going around. Seemed fine to me as long as you got out often way of his scooter.
