As Midnight Majick said, this was an EXTREMELY successful show for us AND for Attacktix. The show was this past Friday, Saturday and Sunday (24th, 25th, 26th) and was held at the Pittsburgh Indoor Sports Arena. Friday was a slow day to start out, but it definitely gave us a taste of things to come. What I'm mainly referring to is the fact that we recouped the cost of our dealer table in the first 5 hours of the show! Simply amazing!
Here are some pics:
We also managed to get some photo opportunities with a couple of the celebrity guests...

Going into this we thought we'd barely break even, but we did much better than that. We exposed new people to the game, helped some seasoned players with completing their collections, and we also gained about 40 more petition signatures in the process. Everything went so well in fact, that we've already pre-ordered our table for the next show which will be December 4th, 5th, & 6th. This was a ton of fun for us, and I think everyone that stopped by our table would say the same.
Last but not least, there were some key players that made all of this possible:
Huge thanks to Himura297, MM, SinisterSyndicator, and LarimusPrime (despite the lack of photographic evidence, he was there too!). Without those guys we wouldn't have had nearly enough brain or muscle to pull this off.
Thanks to IonicDesign for helping to supply us with the big fancy Attacktix banner!
Thanks to Radar for the inspiration for the celebrity pics. That David Prowse pic you got (from Celebration IV?) was awesome.
And a big thanks to Chris and Brenda Brown from Wombat & Chips for giving us plenty of shelving, ideas, and support for this endeavor.
