Dublin GameCraft 4 Update Monday, December 9 2013

“Rocking around the Christmas tree…”

Ok, there was no Christmas tree, but there was cupcakes and mountains of yummy cake to be had. It was sugartastic and as organisers we hoped that gave enough buzz to keep GameCrafters going for 11 hours. Creativity has been pushed to another level and even travel from afar like a 3AM bus ride from Derry, you guys are crazy, Zombiesaurus!).

The sandwiches were by Sweet Cicely.

The theme for the day was

“Always winter but never Christmas.” ― C.S. Lewis

So it was a Christmassy-type of theme, most people kind of guessed anyway. :-)
