CASUAL CONNECT SF / THE GUIDE

28Jul13

Greetings All,

These days you’ll find most of my posts on Pocket Gamer at http://www.pocketgamer.biz/writer.asp?a=208 but Casual Connect is having such a huge week ahead in SF (3000 expected attendees), I thought I’d post a quick guide to the entire show here , there’s more to it on the Casual Connect site, and expecting to have a slightly updated guide posting on PG.biz.

I’m throwing a massive party tomorrow night at Vessel SF (POCKET GAMER SUPER MIXER & PARTY @ CASUAL CONNECT SF which now has over 1400 RSVPs!) and there is a POCKET GAMER RAVE I’ll be at on Wednesday night as well.  So if you’re in town, tweet me @contentnow and stop by to say hi.  I’ll be at the starred items.  At the end of the week, I’ll be posting a recap of the show and afterscene on Pocket Gamer and will update this post with those links.  Enjoy!
