Day 2 - 11.22.08

I woke up on Saturday at 4:30am. I can already tell the 14 hour time change is going to have quite an impact. Let the fun begin.

The morning from our hotel room on the 10th floor of the Granvia hotel.

We met Ron and Brian for breakfast around 7-7:30am. While waiting for Ron, Cat and I took some pictures of the hotel lobby.

Some thingy on the wall that I thought looked cool.


After a yummy buffet breakfast, which included eggs, bacon, salmon, and cheese, we headed over to the event.

The Grand Prix was held at the Convex in Okayama. Cat and I had our picture taken outside the front entrance.

This is a shot behind the scenes at the Grand Prix, where the real magic happens. Magic...the Gathering that is...nevermind :P. This is where Cat and I escaped many times during the day to hide and to eat bento...and Brian's pocky.

My sign! When Ron asked for a bio I gave him a very sarcastic and silly bio...I had no idea that he was going to actually print it out and put it up in front of my booth. That will show me!

A list of some of the Magic cards I did.

Setting up my booth. Cat made some awesome stands out of cardboard.

Signing autographs and drawing, weee!

The first person to play Sarkhan Vol received a special From the Vault: Dragons, signed by me.

The first day was pretty good. Almost 700 people showed up for the event, a couple hundred more than what was expected. The first few people in line gave me gifts. It was very unexpected and very appreciated. I'll have to post some pictures of the gifts later on.

More shots from the hotel window

We ended up ordering room service for dinner...mmmm, beef curry and onigiri.

More to come on Day 3!
