Gam3rCon is happening every day of the Con at the 10th Avenue Theatre. Rather than pretend I know what goes on there, I'm just going to quote the press release:
"Gam3rCon is THE place to play for gamers, geeks, and gaming industry members during the week of Comic Con International. Gam3rCon features video game tournaments for cash and prizes, geek-inspired live theater, tabletop gaming sessions, panels and discussions with gaming industry professionals, and nightly rooftop parties with live entertainment, food, drinks and an amazing view of the San Diego skyline.
New to Gam3rCon this year is the Gaming Art Exhibit. Local artist collective the 8-Bit Cubist will curate an exhibition that takes an artistic look at the vision and core values of the 8-bit era of video games. In addition, local artists are invited to submit their original paintings, drawings, sculptures, or graphic design inspired by gaming, sci-fi, steampunk, fantasy, or similar themes that populate the gaming world."
