They have some package deals as well (can't remember what they are, but if you buy several games together, the cost comes out to less than buying the same number of individual games).
Having the opportunity to play in the pods is one of the major reasons I come out to this and other conventions. It is an absolute blast.
I miss the Red Planet variant.
Go fast! Go splat!
Many years ago (iirc around 2004 neck of the woods), i heard someone actually DID that (Supposedly), but have not heard anything on it since!
Pretty sure they've still got Red Planet... wonder if you could convince them to boot it up when it's slow or late at night or something.
