I'm really excited about the 2012 convention, since it has now moved to a much larger venue (The downtown Hyatt...fondly remembered by many from the days of GenCon being in Milwaukee at the MECCA/MEC). This will be my second year of vending at this convention, so I have a pretty good idea of what to expect. MGC was one of my best events of 2011, with a terrific con com and awesome attendees.
This year's convention programming includes a few different steampunk/dieselpunk LARPs, film screenings, various panels, TONS of gaming of various flavours, and more. (FYI: to keep up with new additions and conversation about the con, join the MGC page on Facebook) While I'll be missing a good portion of the daytime events because I'll be busy shilling my wares in the
Oh...I should also mention that MGC is doing a clothing drive for St. Vincent De Paul Society at the con. Toss an extra garment in your suitcase while packing for the convention and support a good cause!
