NYC Comic Con geek-gasm
Boing Boing tv
visits New York Comic Con
, the largest comics convention on the Eastern seaboard, and we find games, geeks, and graphic novels galore. Our guide through the event's board game realms is Dr. Gregory Wilson
, author and fantasy fiction professor at St. John's University
of New York, who teaches us little-known tools for game quality evaluation. "You can tell this one is awesome because of the weight of the box
-- it's probably about 15 pounds," he says as we pass one title. "This one takes two hours just to set up
! Clear evidence that it, too, is awesome."
Part two of today's episode is a little alternate reality game of our own design -- we like to call it "Count the Cosplayer."
BONUS AWESOMENESS: In related news, Paddy Johnson of Art Fag City blog says: "I set up a small online quiz asking people to label unidentified visitors as either art fair or comic-con attendees. There are a few surprises in there, which keeps it interesting."
