The Sheraton contains not only the Enterplay booth, but also a room dedicated to the card game.  There are plans to hold a tournament each day as well as run demos all weekend.  Come by to try out the game and get a free promo card!  Demos will mainly be run from 10 am -12 pm each day with freeplay following.  Tournaments are 2-4 pm on Fri/Sun and 6-8 pm on Sat.  The current times are somewhat less than official, so keep watch for any updates. [UPDATE!]

For more information, visit: http://www.emeraldcitycomicon.com/

This event will be updated as we get closer to the date. If you have any suggestions on activities, please let me know.

    Is anyone missing a Fluttershy-sleeved "Too Much Pie" card? I think it got shuffled into my deck by accident during a game on either Friday or early Saturday.

    April 3, 2014

    • Toksyuryel

      Do you know if they will be at the episode viewing this weekend? I'll be bringing the card with me. If they won't be there, perhaps I could give it to you and you could pass it along for me?

      April 3, 2014

    • Jonathan S.

      Yeah I could do that. He'll probably be at the Bellevue tournament the next day.

      April 3, 2014

  • Tiffany M.

    There was an adorable Derpy running around during the con on Saturday, I was wondering if anyone knows who she is :)

    April 2, 2014

    • Tiffany M.

      She had cherries in her hair and blonde hair :D

      April 3, 2014

    • Bloo

      Derp. *waives hand* that was me. Thanks for the complements <3

      April 3, 2014

  • Jonathan S.

    Also a big thanks to everyone that helped out Enterplay! It seemed things went pretty well over there. I feel like we're going to have really good relations with them in the future.

    April 2, 2014

  • Jonathan S.

    I think the weekend went really well in general, although I kept getting wrapped up in various items. I even found another comic variant artist (Jeff Egli/Iguana Comics/2414/RD micro), but by time I got to exploring the hall it was too late to mention.

    I did want to mention that the description for my panel was modified in the program guide (without my knowledge) and I'm going to be contacting ECCC about it. Regardless, I'm rather disappointed in what happened right before it. I felt like some of you guys should have known me better. It does seem that the panel went okay despite the changes I felt I had to make, so it's not all bad. It's just preferable that I don't end up in that situation right before a panel as it can be risky.

    April 2, 2014

  • Jonathan S.

    Going to try for ~flutterquest~ at 2:30 PM tomorrow starting in the Main Lobby. The chance of rain is on the lower end, so hopefully it'll be mostly clear then.

    March 30, 2014

  • Bryce

    Woooo nice job on being in King 5 news SR and Vinyl Scratch!

    March 29, 2014

  • Shiree

    Is there a photoshoot on Saturday?

    March 25, 2014

    • Jen / S.

      So, if one isn't in pony cosplay, what do? Come and wave?

      March 28, 2014

    • Christina D.

      I'm here as fluttershy, would love to meet!

      March 29, 2014

  • Christina D.

    Is Saturday's Flutterquest happening? I'm in the lobby, haven't spotted anybody else yet!

    March 29, 2014

  • Jonathan S.

    I now have the cards that I made up for the group. I think they came out alright. There are enough to go around a bit, so anyone that asks me tomorrow can have some to hand out to interested parties.

    1 · March 29, 2014

  • Jonathan S.

    Added a potential midday ~flutterquest~ time. If the weather is okay, I'll bust out the props.

    March 29, 2014

  • Jonathan S.

    Added the card game schedule to photos.

    March 29, 2014

  • Jonathan S.

    Added Georgia Ball to the list. Heather Nuhfer is also roaming around, but doesn't have a table.

    March 28, 2014

  • Bryce

    Yaaaaah! I got to meet Pinkie and Fluttershy! I love Andrea!

    March 28, 2014

  • Bloo

    En route. Expect me within an hour or so.

    March 28, 2014

  • Curtis

    I'll be working the Enterplay gaming area in the Sheraton 3rd floor ballroom. So look for me if you come up there for pony card tournaments / demos!

    1 · March 28, 2014

    • Jonathan S.

      It's going to be me, Curtis, and like ten other people off and on through the weekend. Thanks to everyone that jumped in to volunteer for this!

      March 28, 2014

    • Tales

      Awesome! I'll try to sneak away from staff duties to come say hey!

      March 28, 2014

  • Jonathan S.

    Added Amanda Conner's information. Dropped a few random panels.

    March 28, 2014

  • Jonathan S.

    Okay guys, I'm still arranging things, but something interesting came up and I want to note it right away. I want as many of you guys as possible to be with us in the main lobby (WSCC right side) at noon on Friday. We'll have GiShy with us and we may or may not go out at the time (depending on weather), but I'm pegging this as a leading time slot.

    March 27, 2014

    • Jonathan S.

      It seems we're going to have to do 11 am for this. It's not a good time, but at this point I'm not in a position to try to sway certain parties. Also I'm adding a potential ~flutterquest~ time at 6 pm tomorrow depending on weather. It still looks like it might be bad out.

      March 27, 2014

  • Jonathan S.

    If you have a smartphone, search for the 'Emerald City Comicon' app. They aren't using guidebook this year.

    1 · March 27, 2014

  • Jonathan S.

    I'm back from a meeting about the Enterplay stuff. The tournaments are currently scheduled for 2-4 pm on Fri/Sun and 6-8 pm on Sat. There is a $5 buy-in with a 32 player limit and a shot at some really good prizes. There will be three thirty minute rounds of swiss style and four winners of each tournament. They will be running demos mainly from 10-12 with freeplay from 12-2. Otherwise the weekend is open to whatever. There will be people manning the room all con long, so some of us will be there until midnight on Fri/Sat. I should be getting a proper set of info soon and they are looking to post it on the Enterplay Facebook as well as EqD.

    March 26, 2014

  • Bryce

    Anyone know if Andrea is doing autographs?

    March 25, 2014

    • Heather W.

      Friday:
      10:30, 12:30, 3:00, 5:00
      Saturday:
      1:30, 3:30, 5:30
      Sunday:
      10:00, 1:00, 3:15

      March 25, 2014

    • Bryce

      Hugh... I don't see that on website but the layout is pretty piss poor IMO. Wonder they'll have pony posters to buy or if I have to get one

      March 26, 2014

  • Jonathan S.

    I was just in a conversation about the CCG stuff and I'll probably have more exact details tomorrow about that. They are looking to have tournaments at non-conflicting times. They are likely going to be Friday and Sunday afternoon as well as possibly Saturday evening. Demos will be taking place all weekend and you can get a promo card for taking part in one. The gaming areas will be open from 10 am to midnight on Fri/Sat and 10 am to 5 pm on Sun. It's somewhat likely that I'll be working off and on there myself.

    As far as general enterplay merch goes, it sounds like they are planning to bring a variety of stuff. They don't plan to have a trading card promo though, just whatever they have for the CCG.

    March 25, 2014

  • Jonathan S.

    They are certainly making use of more of the center this year and it seems that all the gaming stuff will be at the Sheraton this time. Not just the Enterplay booth, but the CCG is getting a room of its own there. Details forthcoming. :D

    March 19, 2014

  • Jonathan S.

    There's something I should mention. Andrea Libman is currently signed to another convention that's on the same weekend as EFNW. This might be the only chance to catch her in the area this year.

    March 6, 2014

    • Christina D.

      Oh man, these other conventions are stealing our thunder. How on earth did BABScon get the entire Mane Six cast? I thought they were refusing to attend first-year conventions!

      March 17, 2014

    • Jonathan S.

      Daniel Ingram was recently announced for Crystal Fair as well. As far as I'm aware, Tabitha is still only going to be on Skype for a bit of BABSCon, so it's not like they got them all there. Plus the reason for Tara seems to be that she's going in her place (sort of like Andrea with EFNW last year). BABSCon is a different situation from LPU though. This isn't like an entirely new group running it.

      March 19, 2014

  • Christina D.

    I'm going Saturday only - and sort of thinking about wearing my screen-used Spartacus costume. It's not like I can wear it at Everfree, after all (it has fake blood on it!)

    March 17, 2014

  • Jonathan S.

    WeLoveFine is going to have ten different ECCC-exclusive shirts this year featuring various licenses (including MLP). They sort of did this last year, but it's actually an official partnership this time.

    1 · March 12, 2014

  • Jonathan S.

    Only a handful of shops have Friday tickets left. I've updated the meetup description with guest locations as well as exhibitors and panels (even a couple not-so-pony ones). John and Andrea have schedules listed on the website, however everyone else should generally be at their tables.

    March 9, 2014

  • Sammy S.

    While your their, could any of you ask John de Lancie if he is going to Everfree Northwest?

    March 9, 2014

    • Jonathan S.

      With the way these things work, you'd have to wait for a convention to announce a guest before they're supposed to say anything about it.

      March 9, 2014

  • Clint

    One thing people may be interested in -- Jeffery C. Wells is "Skywriter" on FiMFiction:

    Mad Science, Webcomics and You
    Room: HALL C (610)
    Time: 1:20PM - 2:10PM

    The creative teams of Phil and Kaja Foglio (Girl Genius) and Shaenon K. Garrity and Jeffrey C. Wells (Narbonic, Skin Horse) talk about their work in over a decade of acclaimed mad-science adventures and reveal what's in store for the future.

    March 8, 2014

  • Tiffany M.

    Any news on an official group lunch or photo? It's my first con and can't wait to meet Andrea! Would love to meet some local Bronies! :D I will be there Saturday only and working on my Pinkie Pie Cosplay now!

    March 4, 2014

    • Jonathan S.

      We're probably going to figure out timing on things after the schedule for the con comes out. I know I wouldn't want to plan for something and then have a pony-related panel come up as a conflict. Also keep an eye on the ~flutterquest~ post.

      March 6, 2014

    • Tiffany M.

      The website has the panels and guests schedules now up :D

      March 6, 2014

  • Jonathan S.

    John DiMaggio is coming again this year, but isn't a standard VA guest. He'll be at The Thrilling Adventure Hour booth.

    March 6, 2014

  • Jonathan S.

    Friday tickets are the only ones left (outside of child at least...). My panel is currently scheduled for Friday at 5 pm. The other one is currently scheduled for Saturday at 12 pm. Both are in 3AB.

    I also noticed a booth for J. Scott Campbell. Afaik, he only did one cover (RI for #3). It's worth a mention though for completion sake.

    February 20, 2014

  • Jonathan S.

    Tony Fleecs, Sara Richard, and Thom Zahler: because I decided to take a closer look at the artist alley. I think that accounts for everyone that was vending there last year with the welcome addition of Andy Price (who wanted to but couldn't last time). Everfree NW and BronyCAN also have a table. At least I'm pretty sure that they meant BronyCAN and not BronyCON...

    February 20, 2014

  • Jonathan S.

    ECCC has a limited number of additional Sat/3-day badges that they are going to sell online starting Tuesday at 1 pm. If anyone already bought a one day and is looking to upgrade they can contact [masked]. There is more in their news section, but I don't see a link I can just post.

    February 15, 2014

  • Galileo

    Updated description for prices. John de Lancie is $40 Autograph Fee, $40 for Photo Op. Andrea Libman is $20 Autograph Fee, $10 Photo Op (at table). Everyone else's autograph should be free.

    February 8, 2014

  • Jonathan S.

    Sunday tickets are now sold out online. Offline availability still seems decent.

    January 31, 2014

  • Tiffany M.

    We could only get one day tickets for Saturday, But I will be there in my Pinkie Pie Cosplay :D

    January 31, 2014

  • Jonathan S.

    Amy Mebberson (MLP comic artist) has just been announced!

    January 23, 2014

    • Jonathan S.

      I was actually just thinking last night how I'll have to make sure the Nightmare Rarity I did is there, but now I know I can get it signed by the artist too.

      January 23, 2014

  • Jonathan S.

    3-Days are now sold out online, so I'd say rush to one of the listed comic stores if you can.

    I posted a meetup for ~flutterquest~, which is exactly what it sounds like. I'm currently working things out with the UW group, so I'll have more to say on that later.

    I also have another announcement. My panel submission was accepted. I'm considering this kind of a win given that there were 300+ and less than half made the cut. The current plan for this one is pretty straightforward and laid back. I'll admit right now that it's geared toward interest from a more general audience rather than just us having some fun and games (yet I'm still planning on bringing prizes...so we'll see what happens). I'll let everyone know when I find out where/when it's going to be (along with any other guest panels of course).

    January 17, 2014

    • Jen / S.

      KAREN GILLAN PARTY!!

      January 22, 2014

    • Jen / S.

      Sorry, couldn't resist.

      January 22, 2014

  • Jonathan S.

    Saturday tickets are now sold out online. I recently picked up my 3-Day ticket from The Comic Stop in Redmond ($75 and no fees!) and it looked like they had a good amount of everything. I would certainly suggest getting your ticket/s now. The guy said that the 3-Days would probably sell out online soon. Who knows how long the rest will last.

    January 14, 2014

  • Indiana

    Will be getting me and my gyros tickets as soon as I get a job that pays!

    January 3, 2014

  • Jen / S.

    Got my tickets last week or something. No way in heck I'm missing Richard Dean Anderson (MacGyver)!

    December 29, 2013

    • Jonathan S.

      I got to meet him way back at an E3 where they were promoting a (since cancelled) SG-1 game. They even had a huge Stargate replica on the show floor. I took a picture of him and an old roommate, but unfortunately didn't get one myself.

      December 30, 2013

    • Jen / S.

      So. Jealous.

      December 30, 2013

  • Jonathan S.

    Oh I have something big in mind for this one...possibly two big things.
