Fangirl Thoughts: 

This Con is shaping up to be a great additon to the Cons in the NY/NJ tri-state area. I look forward to checking this con out and if you have been reading my various gaming news then you know that I will be there to check out the tournament for anything to do with Super Smash Bros. 

The company behind this convention utilized Kickstarter to help make it become a reality. They hit their goal and now the convention is a reality. So come out and see Fangirl there.
