Legion of Sand

This past weekend saw the debut of the Arizona Game Fair at the Mesa Convention Convention Center. The table top convention took held court in the “A” building of the convention center, the smaller building of that is not connected to the main building. The main room held several vendors and plenty of tables of table top gaming.

The really cool aspect of Arizona Game Fair is that if you didn’t find a game you wanted to join, you could start your own thanks to the convention library.
