I remember my first trip to Gen-Con. I admit I honestly had no idea what it was before I started playing Magic, and the thought of Conventions sounded nerdy to me back then. High School me would probably laugh at today-me, but that's okay.
Anyway, I finally attended GenCon for the first time three or four years ago. Aside from the awesome cosplay and giant displays, one of the things that really caught my eye was the buildings made out of Magic cards. People would stack them up and build incredible structures over the course of the weekend, and it was a crazy sight.
Here's the aftermath of that.
Yeah, that'll take a bit to clean up. Today I learned that this is actually all part of a charity event, though, and I think that probably takes some sting off the cleanup.
