New York Comic Con may not be your first thought when you think of "conventions with games," but that doesn't mean they're not there. Particularly, Cryptozoic will be there and they'll have some pretty neat specials going on at the show. If you want to try out or pick up some of their latest games, you can do that, too.
Those that haven't had a chance to try out Ghostbusters: The Board Game can get a demo. You can also try out Portal: The Uncooperative Cake Acquisition Game. In fact, if you want to pick up a copy of Portal, you can get one that's signed by the original developers from Valve.
For those that are fans of vinyl figures (you know, like the Funco Pop stuff. Spencer here in the office is damn-near obsessed with them), there will be special versions of those available at the Cryptozoic booth as well. Stop by booth #226 and say hi.
