Up until recently, if you were labeled a professional gamer, most people would think that you must be involved in the rise of popular competitions for eSport games like Overwatch, Rocket League, League of Legends, etc. However, table top gamers have been waiting in the shadows for their chance, and now it is happening.
This weekend, Feb. 15-17, 2013 is the latest Wicked Faire expo/convention/partytime.
Held at the DoubleTree hotel in Somerset, it’s one of the biggest events held in New Jersey for those of alternative tastes/lifestyles and general rabble-rousers. If you like the Renaissance Faire scene, there’s something for you. Steampunk? Gear up ol’ Chap. Get those cogs appropriately placed on your lapels and make certain to pack extra goggles. Cyberpunk?

(okay, honestly, there’s really not a lot of ravers there, but let’s be honest, not really a bad thing is it?). The Wicked Faire has something for everyone.
It’s also a great event group to keep an eye on. They do the Steampunk World’s Fair, the Geeky Kink Event, and a new upcoming straight-up Geek con that, hopefully, we of Nerd-Base will have a presence at (if we can get some funds for it, but that’s another thing all together, more to come).
It’s a really fun way to spend the weekend. Bring your camera, bring some consumables, bring your fancy dress…heck, just bring yourself!!
Actually, perhaps I just let their press release speak for them: Continue reading
