This is a retro gamers dream come true! There must have been millions of games for sale from vendors all over New England and beyond. There was tons of other related merchandise as well.
The volunteer staff was great, very welcoming and friendly. The setup was very well done and allowed for walking traffic to flow freely. The only disappointment was when I had to leave and come back home!
I can't say enough! This expo ruled!

Every year RWX seems to be better than the last.  With great panels, a ton of exhibitors and a huge gaming area that is free to play, what more could you ask for?  My friends and I look forward to it every year.
