Title more or less says what I want to know, is there any plan/consideration for running the Nerf war next year?
General Discussion / Best Moments of Trotcon 2017
« Last post by dadofcraftyhooves on July 23, 2017, 05:22:38 PM »

I've taken my son to Trotcon for 2yrs now. He always has a great time, and everyone is just the best. Everyone is respectful and helpful to him (it seems) because he is young. When we come to Trotcon we come as sponsors so we are there all three days for at least 20hrs total.

I think my son enjoyed the Battle for Bottlecap Canyon and the Jeopardy based pony game the best this year. One of the mods in the Nerf game shot me right between the eyes, and I was merely a spectator....I think I know who you are and I will see you next year muhahahaha.

For me the best part (seems a bit twisted but...) was the blue Halo/pony dude that tripped over the table in the Nerf war. He got one of his butt pads caught on the leg of the table and I laughed and laughed. Since he was not hurt I hope I'm not being too sadistic. I also really like the pony madlibs which I missed this year because my wife had hip replacement surgery that day and we needed to leave early on Friday to help take care of her.

There was a metal Trotcon etching that was made for the auction. I work for a technical school and we have a plasma cutter that our welding students use during their program. My son and I want to make a "under the Sea" themed piece for next year. We also have a pre-engineering class and the students work with 3D printers. I would like to (if I have time) work with the students to get some items together for the auction next year. My son really wants to do it, and this year alone he spent $11 for a marshmallow. He's got a great heart. I'm proud of him.

Anyhow, thanks to everyone who makes this happen. You are all fantastic people. It is truly a highpoint of my sons summer and mine.

Only two more days until TrotCon!! My friends and I will be bringing a bunch of board games, card games, dice games, and maybe some one-off table top RPGs to play this weekend. Hit me up if you are interested in playing! We are planning on getting there early on Friday and gaming most of the day before opening ceremonies. And then kinda playing it by ear the rest of the weekend and gaming in the free time we have. Once we get checked in to the hotel, I'll post what games we have and when we'll be playing (and where). See everyone this weekend!
General Discussion / 4DE ponies coming to Trotcon!

Hi everyone! I'm a vendor at Trotcon again this year at table 22! Some of you may already know me from deviantArt as one of the artists who worked with 4DE to design their plushies.

I was able to get some of their leftover plush stock and will be bringing them with me! As far as I know this is the first time the 4DE plushies have been available at Trotcon, but I could be mistaken!

Anyway, I can't wait for the con! Even if you don't want a plushy please stop by my table to say hello!

Hi there! While there's certainly a focus on G4 in the vendor hall, there have been other vendors in the past who have sold some of the older-gen ponies as well. While I can't think of any specifics off the top of my head, they have certainly existed in the past. :) Same goes for a lot of our panel programming; though it's focused mainly on G4, we will have some programming that references older generations as well.

Hope this helps!
