Midwest Gaming Classic 2019

Please read to the end to find this year’s MGC video I made!

Well, I successfully made it to MGC this year with no weather-related setbacks! I mean, it was cold — because why wouldn’t it be in April in Wisconsin? — but there was no snow and the drive there and back was smooth sailing, so to speak.

Should I have a booth at MGC?

Despite all my hard work on downsizing, I still have a lot of videogame stuff left to sell off. Toys, boardgames and puzzles, t-shirts, controllers, various promotional tchotchkes and knick-knacks, old handhelds, and of course, games, consoles and even arcade PCBs and parts.

So I’m thinking about doing a Retro Game SuperHyper booth at the Midwest Gaming Classic in 2018! Continue reading “Should I have a booth at MGC?”

Midwest Gaming Classic 2017

This year’s Midwest Gaming Classic went down last weekend in Brookfield, Wisconsin (right outside Milwaukee), on a beautiful 70-degree weekend (unseasonably warm for this time of year in Wisco). This being somewhere around my 12th visit or so, I’ve seen the event come a long way from being a one-ballroom affair at a small hotel in Oconomowoc. MGC takes up every available inch of expo space (including the hallways and the bar) on the ground and basement levels of the Sheraton Hotel, as well as the circus-sized tent in the parking lot which houses the vendor area.

Things start rolling on Friday night for early-bird passholders with parties and gaming, but the event officially opens up on Saturday morning and runs into Sunday. As a tattoo artist, I am always busy working on Saturdays, so I always go on Sunday. This is a double-edged sword, as there’s lots of amazing loot to be purchased on Saturdays, but the vendors are more willing to deal on Sundays. So I might see better prices, but less selection. One of these years, maybe, I’ll actually take a Saturday off and see what it’s like. But trust me, the place is a madhouse even on Sunday! Continue reading “Midwest Gaming Classic 2017”
