The holiday season is right around the corner and if you’re like me, you’re already looking for gifts. Because let’s be honest, there is nothing worse than last-minute gift shopping. If you want to give your loved ones something game-related, but away from a screen, maybe a geeky board game is the way to go. Added bonus: you probably get to play that game with them. So, it’s secretly a gift for you, too. Now, let’s get down to the board game gift guide 2022.
Last year Girl Gamer Galaxy visited Tomofair and told you all about our little shopping haul. This year we visited Tomofair Amsterdam. Tomofair is a Japanese themed indoor market with anime, games, cosplay, manga and more. We always love to share our experiences with you and because a picture is worth a thousand words here’s a short photo-impression of our visit.
On the 17th of December Girl Gamer Galaxy visited Dutch Xmas Con, a popculture event with a ’taste’ of Christmas. During this event we encountered many great cosplayers, visited a whole lot of stands (with some awesome merchandise) and talked to a lot of interesting people. And now we want to share our experience with you (our dear fellow geeks) so here’s a short (photo)impression of our day.
Life is a game and true love is a trophy
Before I start talking about being a ‘geek couple’, let me introduce myself first. My name is Sakuraflor. Though people mostly call me Saku. I am 24 years old and I am half Dutch and half Spanish. I am an artist who is specialized in three different art styles, which are: chibi, manga and semi-realism. Next to that, I am a diehard cosplayer also know as Sakuraflor. But more about that later! I’ve been gaming since I was little, always being the Luigi to my older sister’s Mario. Gradually I started playing more on PC and I kinda got stuck on that.
To be honest, when we got invited to go to BlizzCon 2016 it was like a dream come true: ‘Sakuraflor at BlizzCon!’ It was definitely an event which was on all of our bucketlists. So getting a chance to go there was really insane. We didn’t even really know what to expect. It’s an International con and on top of that, it’s one of the biggest ones in the United States. So we went there with zero expectations.
