03.25.2014   ECCC Gaming is Bigger and Better!

Posted by: Andrea D
Gaming has gotten so big at Emerald City Comicon that we had to move it into another building! Join us across the street in the Sheraton Hotel’s Metropolitan Ballroom to try out new games with demos starting throughout the day. We will have panels throughout the weekend, on everything to do with games! If there’s a game you already love, you and your friends can use our lending library to check out board games and play in our freeplay area. We’ll also have tournaments starting throughout the day. There will be exhibitors showing off and selling games you love and games you haven’t played yet. And if joysticks are your weapon of choice, we’ll have a Freeplay Arcade featuring pinball and classic arcade games, provided to us this year by the the Northwest Pinball and Arcade Show.

Further Gaming information can be found under the Gaming section.
