socrates63 Posted August 18, 2020 Report Share Posted August 18, 2020 Are there any noteworthy online-only classic gaming conventions in the near future? Did you attend any recently? How was your experience? Little over a week ago, I attended virtually the online edition of the Long Island Retro Gaming Expo. It was my first virtual convention. Ticketing went smooth. Online experience was also smooth. Being online only, it actually allowed me to "attend" more panels than usual. I usually only have a few hours to spend at a convention, so between shopping and browsing, I can only squeeze in a couple panels at most. I must have attended seven or eight panels and browsed the shopping area. My highlight was attending live Dan Kitchen's talk on his upcoming game Gold Rush. For the immediate term, online conventions are what we're going to get. I'm briefly sharing my experience to encourage everyone to support your conventions and expos if they happen to transition to online only. I grabbed this Centipede marquee style pin to bring a little physicality to the virtual experience. Hopefully, I can attend a Long Island RGE in person in 2021 or 2022.
