We went to SCARAB over the Martin Luther King Jr weekend in Columbia, SC. It was our first time as vendors, and we had a great time! The staff was courteous and polite, super-helpful and always smiling. As vendors, we were placed in the boardgame room, and it was great fun to see all the smiling faces. SCARAB is truly a family event, with programs, called tracks, for everyone. There were games for the kids and non-gaming activities for the “widows” – people who came to be supportive, but who aren’t all that into gaming themselves. This year, SCARAB introduced an anime track and a costume contest! It truly felt like a small GenCon, with great Southern charm.
One of the products that premiered at SCARAB was a game called Hull Breach. Having just finished a successful Kickstarter campaign, the fine folks over at Not-So-Broken games were showing us how to play.
This small convention won’t stay small for long. Next year’s date has already been set – January 16-19. So clear a spot on your calendar, because this is one convention you don’t want to miss!
