    Holiday Matsuri

    until
    Holiday Matsuri 2016 is a festive holiday convention held every year in Orlando, FL! This year, the convention will be at the glorious Orlando World Center Marriot, from December 16-18! Last year, the Orlando Guild was invited to table at Holiday Matsuri, and we were even the benefactors of their benefit ball where we raised over $2,000! This year should be even better as attendance is expected to increase, which will help with sign-ups AND the benefit ball fundraiser. Info: This will be updated as more information arrives, but as of right now, this is what we know. Two tables Vendor Hall Gaming Room Benefit Ball All proceeds donated to Extra Life Orlando Guild We are looking for any and all volunteers, so if you're interested, please let this be know. We can't wait for this event, and we look forward to making a great impact for the kids!

  16. See, I almost put franchises for my list, I should have just gone that route. Kind of a cheat but for certain ones it is impossible to decide which is best.
  17. Oops, you're completely right. Shows I haven't had much time for gaming this year. lol
  18. For this year definitely Fallout 4 hands down. But I may be a little biased, see the Favorite Games thread. =)
  19. I am the thread necromancer! Hi Coin, I was looking through these older threads and just wanted to drop a link in here for our next guild meeting in September in case you and your husband were still interested in dropping by. I may even bring some RTX 2016 swag to show off.. =)
  20. Hi everyone, I'm curious what everyone's all time, favorite, top 10 games list would be. I always have trouble ranking mine so I am interested in seeing what everyone else' lists look like. This could be old games, new games, console, PC, boardgames, card games you name it. I'll try to list mine here to get the ball rolling but in no particular order. Bioshock 1 Portal 2 Half-life 2 Final Fantasy 6 Final Fantasy 7 Chrono Trigger Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Diablo 2 Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Fallout 3 And that's my list, at least for now. Your turn!
  21. Hi everyone, I'm very happy to be taking over the Secretary position from Taylor. He was a great secretary and I'm sure will be a great president as well. You'll probably be seeing a lot of posts from me now as I have taken on the responsibility of forum maintenance and some of the guild communication. I hope to see you all at our next meeting or event!
