As long as there is Friday Night Karaoke and I can somehow get Ben Heckendorn inebriated enough to willingly sing Robin Sparkles' Let's Go to the Mall it'll be a successful MGC 2012 for me.

So Ben being drunk and singing Let's Go is sort of like ground hog day for the Midwest Gaming Classic?

Oh, nice! Worked with Scott and his publisher to get his blessing to do the TI Scott Adams Adventure CD compilation way back in the late 90's. I was only allowed to sell 50 as he was working on a new Return To Pirates Isle game for Win95 - but still have my copy and a prototype/wip PC diskette I'm saving as part of my "retirement" benefits. :rolling:

It would be interesting to see who all here from the Usenet days, still have their CD's...

Yeah, he's phenomenal. Has tons of cool stories too.

We're currently at only six remaining spots, so if you decide, decide soon. We wanted to keep it limited to make it really special, but it means we won't have spots for long!
