I’ve talked about how this week has blown by. And the previous week, too. Heck, you could just about say that the whole year’s blown by. It’ll soon be 2017 and that means it’s time to look ahead to next year’s shows. One that I know I’ll be attending, and I hope yo...

All good things must come to an end. That is the way of it. Such was the case yesterday with the CMON Expo. I realize I’m going to seem rather biased for saying it, but it really is my favorite show of the year. Unlike the bigger shows, the Expo is designed to be low-key. […]...

Time keeps rolling on. And with that, the CMON Expo keeps getting closer and closer. But even with just one week left until the show starts (or really, by the time you read this, less than a week), that doesn’t mean there’s not plenty to still talk about for the show. There’s Panels...

The CMON Expo is one of the great shows that will be here before we know it. Heck, it’s only 2 months away! One of my favorite parts of the show is that you can hang out with a whole bunch of gaming industry people in a relaxed environment. When you’re someplace like Gen Con, […]...

Hard to imagine that a week ago at this time, we were elbow-deep in the CMON Expo. I love the Expo. It’s small enough that you don’t feel pressured to be running around to try and see everything, but still big enough that you’re never bored, going “what is there to do?” ...
