    Wasn't too bad last year. Depends what your looking for, NES/SNES repros where kinda high but also selling like crazy.

    Well, cdamm is doing a pretty good jerb talking me into heading out to MGC this year so maybe we'll be at it again soon-ish.

    I just don't know on what kinda $ to prepare for. Like is there anything at MGC that's similar to the stuff that shows up in the PRGE auction (even though this years auction sucked).

    The vendors aren't bad, just bring earplugs for the vendor tent.

    I might go for the pinball tournament. It is drivable from St. Louis, so I might as well check it out once.

    I'll be there as usual - dragging shit up for the museum and everything.

    the question is - do I bring it?

    Well in that case! You can find me in the TurboFest room.

    Also, the bands aren't always TRBL-

    The bands sucked when they started using the extra space in the vendor's room for concerts. If you wanted to go to the vendor's room, you were stuck listening to crappy cover bands (BTW, Turbosage, thank you for proving that point with that video).

    Last year was especially bad...the bands that were there had 'crowds', and I use the term very loosely, of 3-10 people.

    MGC was tons of fun last year. Although I spent almost the entire time in the Turbo room! I will be going again this year. Not anywhere near as big as PRGE but still a lot of fun. It's a good con to go and just chill and play some games with some like-minded folks.

    This will be my 2nd time attending MGC.
    NeoGeo is the only "cart" based system I collect for now-a-days. Hope to add at least one new title to the collection at the show ��
