For the last few years, the designated area for NintendoAge has been a room which normally functions as a hotel room. During Midwest Gaming Classic, the hotel clears all furniture out of a block of 10 of their hotel rooms, and it's used for extra convention space. I made a little signage to lure in anyone passing by.
This year's setup was definitely my best. I brought along a computer which played the game's trailer, and had 2 televisions set up. The second tv was used to show Nomolos, another homebrew I was promoting for Gradual Games. Check it out if you haven't already - it's a solid side scrolling platformer with a good challenge and awesome music. I had a chance to record the room during a short break in the action.

I was extremely fortunate that the Tetris tournament finals were happening right next to the area where panels take place. Christian Dietering (aka Ferris Bueller of NintendoAge) was presenting "The World of Nintendo Aftermarket Games" and I was able to listen in while getting ready for the final rounds of the tournament. I snapped a quick photo of Christian's display. If you are in the Texas area, be sure to check out his epic convention, Let's Play Gaming Expo, which will take place in August!
After a 4th place showing in the Tetris tournament, where I lost to some good friends, and really great tetris players, I took in just a little more of the convention before it ended.
See you at MGC in 2016!
