Seeing how popular the gaming rooms were at TerrifiCon, producer Mitch Hallock realized that fans wanted more and was more than happy to provide a convention dedicated on all types of gaming for the fans. “Fans were asking if we can do more conventions, particularly ones about gaming, so that where the idea came from”.
Skilled video gamers can try play in the vast tournament room, and if they have a set of skills, can enter hourly tournaments of Tekken 7, Street Fighter V and more, to win cash and other cool prizes. The gaming tournaments will run all weekend, and there will be live music and a cosplay (fans dressed as their favorite characters from games, TV, movies and comics) on Saturday. Sunday is focused on the little gamers with kids able to play MarioKart, SuperSmash Brothers and more. Plus, the good folks at Microsoft will have their latest Xbox games available for play as well with Gears of War, Halo and more! There will be arcade games, driving and even Guitar Hero in the lobby provided by CyberQuest and Kids’ Quest also located at Mohegan Sun.
Those who like their games without controllers and headsets and more of the dice and card variety, can join in on card games like Magic the Gathering, Pokemon and others. There will be free to play demonstrations from game designers and companies as well.
Finally, if you are looking for that rare action figure, poster, T-shirt or retro video game there will be a dealer’s room offering all sorts of cool collectibles to purchase.
