I hope you guys have Expanded Pokemon TCG tournaments like last year!
This year my friend is letting me borrow a few cards so I can compete in my 1st live pokemon tournament, as long as it's expanded (a few of his cards are B/W series)

I hope to participate this year :D

Hi everyone, we apologize for the late responses! This has been a challenging year for our Gaming department teams and other parties.

I have updated the OP with Tabletop event/tournament list for this year, with eGaming to follow very short, and Arcade ASAP.

Really hoping Just Dance will be here ^^ will bring friends to Fanime if it is!

eGaming will have a Just Dance setup as per usual every year, along side with Pump It Up 2. We have expanded the dance game area to hopefully mitigate crowds better.

Please try to get a Maimai Pink machine :< I love that game but I can't play it here in the states!

We're going to add this to our wishlist for future years. I just saw a video of this and looks pretty cool!

I hope you guys have Expanded Pokemon TCG tournaments like last year!

We have formally announced that we will be having a Pokemon TCG tournament in the OP. Copying and pasting details here -

Pokémon TCG
* Saturday 1:00 PM
* Sunday 1:00 PM
* 1 vs 1 : Swiss Best
* 30 person sign-up cap
* Expanded Black and White to Guardians Rising

There has to be some mistake. Guitar Freaks will be there but no Drummania?

I think it was supposed to be as it was on the arcade list, but I never saw it Thursday, Friday, or Saturday and none of the staff members I asked knew about it.

Do you think it's time to get a new arcade supplier?

I understand that On Campus Entertainment has a great relationship with Fanime, but they have the same arcade games for the last 5 years (at least), plus all were still .50 to 1.25 to play. Because I can still play console and PC games for free, ever thought of making the arcades free-play? And maybe changing vendors to mix up the arcade cabinets, aka 'new' ones?

As for the all other gaming, I love the layout. But maybe dedicate several more stations only to retro or other consoles. I know it's a con thing, but there's more to gaming than Smash all the time

Hi everyone, we needed a breather but we want to thank everyone for checking out the "Gaming Hall" and "+18 Late Night Game Room" at FanimeCon 2017!

Arcade comments - we are reviewing what happened with the "posted list" vs "what was on site". While I cannot comment about the "new arcade supplier", we do want to acknowledge we are taking feedback about it + our arcade operations in general.

Please do keep the feedback coming in here (+our FB/Twitter outlets). With Gaming being the 2018 theme, well as they say, "Challenge accepted"?
