LARP Live Action Role Playing included such themes as Study Session, Hanagumi, Combat Expo, 
Jewelry Show, Fighting Tournaments, and the Final Exam.  For the cosplayers and weekend RPG actors, 
this was definitely a chance to get into the art of becoming your favorite anime or manga character and maybe 
survive a few martial arts attacks or Baka Hammers or two.

of Sony Playstation 2s and Microsoft X-BOXes from sea to shining sea.  Scheduled gaming tournaments included
