Do they have open gaming and demos there or is it mostly tournaments? I'm considering attending.

Has anyone had problems getting tickets for CMON Expo?
It gets stuck on "redirecting confirmation page" for me on the payment screen. Someone else I know has had the same problem with it since this last Friday.

Yes to all. They will have all their newest games available to play test, especially ones that will be coming out within the next year. They also have a games library where you can check games out from, painters there to teach classes, forums on game development, etc... This will be my 3rd year to go.

Also, if you attend you can get the "swag bag" which comes with a free copy of Black Plague among other things:

I feel it is a very young convention so we could start the trading there!

hmm, I am very tempted to bring some games to trade then. The trouble is though carrying everything around while enjoying the gaming. I'm already going to have the swag bag and Zombicide Black Plague to carry around with me.

Looking forward to attending this year! Will there be a store for purchasing CMON games? Trying to decide if I should add Kreus and Ethnos to a CSI order or just be patient. LOL, patience...not my hero skill.

They do sell their games at the expo but they're at MSRP. I believe you do get some sort of points to then exchange for additional promo items, so that may be worth paying the MSRP vs. CSI prices.

Do they sell promos from earlier KS projects? If so, what did they have available this year and at what prices? That might be enough to tip the scales in favor of attending next year for me.

They didn't sell any KS promos but you could get some as a reward for purchasing stuff from their store. For every $25 you spend you get a ticket that you can exchange for promos. Some promos were one ticket, some more.
