NWA Game Con 2011

As you all know, or will know soon, we’re showing up for NWA Game Con 21- 23 October (See, we’re in the guest list! :D). I hope you all can make it! Mainly since this is the first time we’re in the middle of the US of A, and well, to be honest, it’ll probably be the only time too (we don’t get invited to those parts that often).

If you can’t make it, don’t be sad, since you’ll have a chance to hook up for a beer in the area anyways.. since we’re planing a little road trip thru the area.. wide area.

The preliminary trip looks like this so far (14 October > 20 October):

Springfield (Missouri) > West Plains > Cherokee Village > Bono > Memphis > Batesville > Goodman > Jackson >New Orleans > Baton Rouge > Alexandria >Shreveport > Texarkana > Mena > Fort Smith > .. and then land in Springdale for the convention.

(The stops are totally random, and just so that you know what route we’re driving, and we’ll change it if you have any suggestions or want to hook up along the way somewhere).

Please let us know if there’s anything cool to see on the way, or if you live somewhere along the road and know about a party/BBQ/cold beer in the sun chillaxing/cow-surfing.

We’ll bring some books and other stuff if there’s anyone that needs a signed book hand delivered ;)

Please leave a comment or email us and let us know! :D

.. btw, isn’t there a “the worlds biggest pancake” on the way somewhere?

Memphis has a couple cool parks/museums, but if you’re in Tennessee, you should stop by Nashville. It’s way more fun than Memphis.

Wisconsin has the best beer (cept Miller). Just FYI ;)

HAHA…you’re really going to the backwoods of America. I grew up in the area. Talk to Chantra about her father’s restaurant in Springfield. There isn’t much to see from Springfield to Memphis. There are lots of speed traps so go slow through Imboden, Portia and Hoxie. It’s all two lane black top.

Jonesboro has a couple of OK eateries but there is really nothing until you hit Memphis. Then you should dine on Swine! Check out Central BBQ and Cozy corner for pulled pig and Rendezvous for amazing dry ribs. The Staxx and Sun Studios are worth a visit and the Civil Rights Museum is great.

After leaving Memphis, bee line it to New Orleans. On the way up to Springdale, check out Hot Springs and Little Rock. Not much else to see unless you want to dig for diamonds, canoe down a river or climb some rocks.

Hopefully some day, the west coast will catch your interest. :)

They have been to the West Coast before Nanami, seeing as I’ve dropped hundreds of dollars on them. Of course, I never had the pleasure of destroying my liver with them.

Godamnit why can’t Australia have a decent convention!? If you guys come down here (Melbourne) I will personally put you up


There is no spoon.
