It's basically a smaller version of Magfest and goes for 3 days instead of 4. The tables are pricey but the attendances makes up for it. It's difficult to get a full table so you might have to do the table share option they provide. The con prioritize returning artists and they usually only have a few spots left open for new artists. Overall a pretty successful show. Also Chris Chan merch sells very well here because of a certain incident back in 2018.

TOO MANY AWESOME
YES! Great show to be an artist at! I'd never been to this area of the country until this show and the dedication and coolness that just oozes from this game scene is really something to behold. Visual artists, musicians, game creators, all coming together in spot to celebrate retro gaming together...out in the middle of nowhere! Yeah, the convention is kind of out of the way, but I feel that it's worth the trip. Very fun, lots of party, lots of chill, lots of networking. Fantastic example of what a video game expo SHOULD be. They are also a show that is getting bigger. I wanted to do it again this year but by the time I had the money to register, they were sold out. Oh well, maybe next year! I had been invited to attend this show at the previous year's PRGE (see my review on that show too!) to do a panel about my art. It was an honor to fly all the way out there to hang out with you guys. When I have the means to, I intend to do it again...and MAGFest of course! Or better yet, MAGWest! Let's go!
