ConReview: AfroComicCon 2017 Gallery 1

Last weekend BLAM (Black, Latino, Asian, Manifested) presented AfroComicCon in Oakland.  It is one of the Bay Area’s newest events and was held at SAE Expressions College which is centrally located in the East Bay right off Hwy 80. Not only did the venue have its own parking lot, which is rare in the Bay, but also included free parking-always a plus for any event.  As with any good con, plenty of vendors and artists filled the venue. Along with all the artists and vendors, there were a number of wonderful panels such as People of Color in Entertainment, Women in Comics, and Women in Entertainment.

It is always great to see familiar talent like James Weston, DaRapNerd – DaRealWordSound and Big Tree Comics.  Some of the highlights for me included the Cosplay Costume Contest and The Geek Fashion Show which was the kick off for the after party.

Year one was very well done and look forward to next year’s event. I always love seeing all the creative cosplays. Enjoy some of my photos of the event.

The Hungry Gamer Reviews Tzolk’in

One of the more highly anticipated games from 2020 was Pendulum, a game that had a core conceit of time, the longer the worker stays out on the board the more powerful it is. Whether or not that game worked is a different article, but the concept of time being part of the mechanic for the worker placement game had been done previously, and if popular opinion can be believed, had been done very well in Tzolk'in, a game which has been around since 2012.
