Friday at PAX was busy. Things started for me getting off a red-eye flight from Redmond landing at 9:30am in Boston. I headed right over to Microsoft NERD for Major Nelson’s morning Tweet-up. I realized Microsoft Surface was there too late to get some new games loaded up, but I don’t think the crowd minded. Most of them were there to talk to Major and the Xbox team. Those that found Surface were really happy just to play.
I chatted with gamers for about an hour after Major Nelson’s talk. It was a lot of fun to see the excitement generated and their brains spinning thinking of what they’d like to see on the platform.
It wasn’t long before some of that wish was fulfilled. A number of people said that playing Dungeons & Dragons (See my post for more) on Surface was in their top 10 list for the conference.
If you can believe it, play went into the night, wrapping up at 2am. If you are at PAX and haven’t played yet, come find us in Room 111 by the tabletop games. It’s hard to find, but a worthy quest.
