The table top gaming room was a fan favorite, with almost every game under the sun to be played. The room even featured a Gaming Library where you and your friends could rent a game that you wanted to play.
From extremely complex to very simple, a lot of cosplayers from all around the continental United States gathered to attend this event. Featured here we have Halo™ cosplayers with the colorations of Applejack and Twilight Sparkle from My Little Pony™, proving that friendship really is magic.
