The second day of the 2016 Newfoundland Gaming Expo — NGX — held on July 25 2016, was just as eventful as the first: with astonishing cosplayers, great deals or retro games and systems (as well as a favorite of mine, the all-in-one style Retron 5) and lots of gaming events revolving around the registered non-profit Sandbox Gaming.
In addition to returning favorites like Erin Vance, Scott Bartlett, Melanie Collins and Christopher P Walsh, all of whom appeared in the 2016 anthology collection Sci-Fi from the Rock, NGX afforded me the chance to get to know several of my surrounding vendors, including Sarah McCausland of Whimsy Witch Studios, who does amazing art that adapts characters from traditional geek lore into feline representations, and Baddy Creative, a high-quality arts and crafts like vinyl images, knitting, and cosplay. We hope to be working with them soon.
For any who noted her absence, Ellen Curtis had a scheduling conflict with a family vacation and could not attend NGX on Sunday, July 24.
We hope to work closely with NGX and Sanbox Gaming in the future and can’t wait until next year!
