Singapore, Toys, Games and Comics Convention aka STGCC was fun even though there was so much negativity online before it. I blame the lack of updates from the main STGCC website.
You want to tease the audience, sure but don’t tease them till the last minute. I found out some competitions or activities just a few days before the event date. Due to the lack of information, people don’t really want to pay money for what they don’t know, yeah?
Hope next year they’ll put out the info much earlier. Ignoring all the online negative bits, YAZAAA! Look below.
I have tons of pictures so it’s difficult to pick which to post here. Instead, you can have a look see of a video that Carmen Sandiego I made. And now I begin not from the start but from the middle and onwards since I wandered around before checking things out in order!
We’re doing a game on both days and we have stuff to give away that are pretty nice! For one thing, we’re doing this cause we like playing games, heh heh.
COME AND SEARCH FOR ME at those specific times! I’ll be hanging at a specific booth for at least 30 minutes for each session. If no one picks up the prize at the first timing, it snowballs to the next session!
You can find out where by checking out the twitter at http://twitter.com/#!/herebegeeks or you can just try to hunt me down then if it’s not too crowded. Cause hey, I’ll be at one location for 30 minutes, that should be enough to look ALL around the hall anyway!
To get there, drop at Mountbatten MRT station and then walk on the bridge across the river (estuary as some of the crew might say or glorified drain) and walk to the school compound and the studio’s towards the back of it.
We emailed the staff at the studio the week before going though! Since the five of us knew what we were going to do there when looking at the list of stuff that we can do.
There was a mini exhibition at Wilkie’s Edge with some artists who are most probably going to be at STGCC too at their own booths! I went here after doing a little expedition for Nothing Less (more on that on another post this week!). It’s one of those mini events before the main Singapore Toys, Games and Comic Convention would be held on 20th August.
For those following this earlier last week, HBO Asia’s sending me clues for a Game of Thrones event. Well, the next clue is sugar. We had flour and now sugar. What are we doing for this Game of Thrones?
This is Professor Why and we went to the Science Fest at Suntec! The science centre usually has these workshop/roadshows yearly at various malls or exhibition halls in Singapore. So if you’re not off to Jurong to check the Science Centre, the SCIENCE CENTRE COMES TO YOU.
