Huntsville Gaming Convention?
So maybe it is just me, but what is with the gaming scene in Huntsville? (I’ve been trying to understand it for almost 3 years now since moving here.) Oh sure, I know there are some gamers that get together at Haven and the BookMark to game, but what I don’t understand is… where’s the con??? As far as I know, there isn’t a gaming convention in Huntsville or anywhere nearby, yet this town is full of geeky engineers so we should be spilling over with techie, gaming, and other hobby stuff. Are there just not enough gamers in the area to financially pay for a gaming con? Do the gamers around here not support cons (i.e., don’t attend, don’t run games, etc.)? Anybody got the answer? And if so, will you share it? (This may lead me to post about why no posts on Haven’s blog ever have comments/replies…)
