Sneaky Cards – A Tom Kida Vlog Series Episode 2

This month I challenged myself by stepping further out of my comfort zone with Gamewrite’s Sneaky Cards. I headed to New York City with my brother, Nick Kida, to complete this month’s set of cards. While the weather wasn’t the greatest, the day sure was.

**Not a Sponsored video** I like this game, the challenges it brings, and the conversations it forces me to have with people I would have normally walked passed.

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? Done (and you’ll definitely stand out). Goth? Punk? Rockabilly? Burlesque? Conspiracy theorist? UFO Enthusiast? Australian Post-Apocalyptic Leather-Clad Motor Gang Member?  Brony? Raver? (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 NJ’s Wicked Faire: Revenge of the Renaissance Faire – Feb.15-17, 2013
