The Escapist Expo, or as some are calling it – Gamer’s Delight Weekend, is a month and a half away, and while some are enjoying the call of Dragon*Con, quite a few are eagerly awaiting the promise of gaming and general geekery on all levels, closer to home. What’s your pleasure? They are planning on having it all, including yours truly, the Goddess of Trivia. This is the inaugural year which means you can be in on the awesomeness from the beginning.

The Durham Convention Center is going to be transformed into the Candyland of gaming. There will be video gaming, table top gaming (both board and card games), a vintage arcade, laser tag arena, Magic The Gathering Tournament, assorted RPG’s, and of course trivia. Not into any of those things, don’t fear my precious geeks there will be other fun to be had.

All cosplayer’s are welcome. Wear your finest assassin’s gear, Dovahkiin, Ragnaros, or Darth Talon costume. Come as your favorite Lego character, or muggle. The most important thing is to come, and don’t forget to enter the Cosplay Costume Contest.

If your brain needs a break Friday and/or Saturday night there will be a screening on the lawn of Flash Gordon, and a musical shindig with Gavin Dunne.

There is a little of something for everyone. Come and have some fun with us, The Charlotte Geeks and Empire Games at the first Escapist Expo. Enjoy the games, enjoy the spectacle, buy the goodies you can’t get anywhere else, and look out for Master Chief, Big Daddy, and Kitana.
