So was the Obon Festival worth going to? I'm thinking of hitting the Mountain View one this weekend, but if the SJ one was just "okay", I'll pass on the MV one. (Ugh, parking!)

Los Altos Gamesday, Monthly, Saturdays, 10am-11pm

Available Sundays for Fantasy Flight Games tabletop gaming in the Santa Clara area.


it really depends on what you look for as "entertainment"

again the terms of "stuff" there is usually a combination of the following:

Taiko Drum performances,  Live music and Dance Performances,

LOTS of food [possibly over priced] , flower, crafts, and monk panels

Kids area with lots of ridiculously hard carnival games

so basically it really depends who you go with and what your expectations are.

Personally i had fun, because im a cosplay dork like that.

Games, Friends & Fanime oh my! :D


I thought it was cool, but I definitely wouldn't spend my entire day there. lol
