    Default Dallas/Fort Worth Retrofest

    There's going to be a small gathering of retro gamers near Fort Worth April 27.

    15 dealer's tables and a swap area.

    Not sure what to expect, but you can read more about it here:

    Ah, so that's why I never found much in flea markets and thrift stores in that area of Fort Worth. There's a local that grabs it all up before I get there. As usual, sadly.

    I'll hopefully get to go, unless I end up with a new boss who refuses to allow me to have a weekend day off (like the last five bosses I've had).

    $10 is pretty dang good for a table at a convention. I'd love to consider getting one, but I'd rather be able to roam around the place freely, and especially be able to leave and get lunch whenever I wanted to.

    This small show starts at 1:00, so lunch won't be a problem.

    I talked to the guy from FX Game Exchange over in Plano, and he said he'll probably make it. And that there's going to be another retro gaming night at his store either the week before or after, I've already forgotten. I've missed all the other ones they've had, I've got to try and make it this time.

    Aaaaaand.... I forgot about the FX Game Exchange gathering. Damn. I was actually in the area this afternoon, too. Oh well, I should have Saturday off so it looks like I'll be there (unless I forget).
