NYCC: Day 1

I was running a little late today so I didn’t get the usual line status pictures. I will try and give status updates tomorrow before the USPS Wonder Woman stamp ceremony.

First stop today was the Sideshow booth to pick up a card to be stamped at a couple of booths. Once it is filled out I have to return it to the booth for prizes.                             img_3126They may not be giving away all the items in the pictures but you should be able to get the Nycc 2016 pin.

The next stop was a VR experience with Amazon’s Man in the High Castle. After filling out a survey and getting instructions on the system and what to expect, we were led into a secluded area and put on the VR gear.

The play was more of an experience then a game.  Interactive, but more of a walk through of the show as opposed to the Star Trek:Bridge Crew game which had an outcome determined by the player’s actions. Man in the High Castle used the Vibe.
