Until the internet about 33.
Now about 12.
Internet has reduced show sales a lot!
Maybe shows will become mainly games with traders bringing a few display pieces, order at the show and it gets posted to you in the week. More traders(easier/cheaper for traders to get to the show), less trade space needed?

1 would like to do more but conflicts with my real life prohibits it.

5 for me!

Old Wolfman17 Oct 2017 5:59 a.m. PST

2 this year. CincyCon and ATC(Advance The Colors). Would've been 3,but I had to skip Origins to help a work bud,and GenCon due to serious SNAFU in pre-reg.

jefritrout Supporting Member of TMP17 Oct 2017 6:31 a.m. PST

This last year was only 4, but normally it is 5.

ViscountEric17 Oct 2017 6:56 a.m. PST

Three this year, hoping for 6+ next year

Ragbones Supporting Member of TMP17 Oct 2017 9:35 a.m. PST

Zero. Used to attend all three HMGS East conventions but stopped going several years ago. Hope to go to one or two next year.

Warfare 8 (usually a 10 but took SWMBO which curbed my spending!)
Salute 9 so much to see, so much to do, so much to spend and too little time!
Partizan 1 10 Great venue, lots of great games
Partizan 2 7 missed a few traders I wanted to see but caught up with some good friends
Derby 9 in 2016; 3 in 2017 too hot, cramped (trade and demos), awful parking and remote! Good lighting but won't return in 2018 after nearly 25 years!


Mocaiv17 Oct 2017 9:48 a.m. PST

Usually do Salute and Colours as they are nicely six months apart, but also have started going to Derby Worlds (now in Leicester) as well.
