Fredericton E-Gaming expo to have an unplugged game room. Pogob (Players Of Games Woodstock) might be going to warm a table, play and teach. Anyone want to go?

Some additional details (taken from the link) to make the decision easier:

* August 10-11, 2013
* Doors open at 10AM Each Day and [video] Games Start at 11AM, although I see no reason why board games couldn't start earlier than that
* $10 admission for the weekend
* Fredericton Exhibiton Center (361 Smythe St. Fredericton, NB)

If there are a few tables of board games, I'd be happy to join in (and/or bring some games to play). My ideal scenario would be picking one day and dedicating it to board games... interested to hear what others say.

Bumping the topic for added visibility. Just under a month to go, so keep the date on your radar and drop a note if you plan to attend.

As long as the organizer gets back to Eric in time, I'll be there along with him. I'm pushing for a one-day presence, on Saturday.

There should be plenty of gamers there, I know a few coming up from SJ for sure.

I, unfortunately, won't be one of them as I've made previous plans. :\

So...

I'm sure there will be lots of people there, but with less than a week to go nobody has actually confirmed interest in offline gaming.

Although I'd like to show up and see what's happening, the combination of a cover charge, complete lack of interest in the video gaming content, and no advance planning on the board gaming side has pretty much killed my interest.

Hope anyone who does go enjoys the event - but with no idea what kind of return on (time) investment might be found, I'd rather spend the day with my wife and kids.

I just checked the website yesterday and it looks like there will be a whole area devoted to tabletop. It said magic, catan, bsg, and other games will be available plus what people bring. So tabletop may be more prevalent than expected.

I will be going both days, and would really like to get a game of A Game of Thrones going. I'll also be bringing some other games, and probably at least a couple other people.

Well, Eric and I are heading up for Saturday afternoon. Hopefully we can get into a few good games.
