So will there be a live videochat feed going? I think that would be neat to be able to see and talk to other people in the greater Civ/ AC fandom.

Hunt Valley, Maryland is so close that I hardly have any excuse not to go... were it not for the timing. Assuming I can get off from work at that time of year, I'll likely be there.

Alas, September-October is the crunch time in my line of work. Hopefully, I won't be working Saturdays in September, but I can't count on it.

 

If I'm free that Saturday, though, I'd definitely like to be there!

This is the hotel room booking website. Notice anything wrong? :lol:

I'm going to guess that they mean you can reserve the final day of the conference by the final day, but it's amusing the way they display it... reserve by Sept 28 for Sept 26, heh.

Think of it as a sort of credit card payment? :cute:

Did this already sell out? When I look on the website, it notes it as "sold out". Is there still a way to go, in case I get confirmation from my employer that I'm not working that Saturday?

It's sold out.

 

So just out of curiosity how many spots were there (i.e. how many people are attending?)? Also, is there going to be an agenda? It'd be neat to know what our options are during the day, if there are events running concurrently.

They said on twitter it was sold out, but to keep an eye out, because they might announce that extra tickets would be sold.

I haven't seen an agenda yet.
