Blizzcon Blues

To attend Blizzcon, or not to attend Blizzcon. That is the question.

A while ago, I bought two tickets to the event that starts today at the Anaheim Convention Center. Unfortunately, after some time, my wife decided that she didn't want to attend (I can't really blame her -- a bunch of sweaty gamers packed into an arena doesn't make for a good visual or olfactory experience), and so, I am left with one unused ticket, and at this point, no one that's willing to buy it.

I may as well have flushed a Benjamin down the toilet...

Of course, I could still attend the show myself, but really, how fun would the event be if I were to walk through the isles all by myself? I tried that once at E3 in Los Angeles, and ONLY once at E3. Call me a social bug or whatever, but it was so unsatisfying to see all of those wonderful games without someone to turn to and enjoy them with. It felt like a novelty. A gimmick. Totally not worth the time.

And so, I find myself in class now, dressed up for a casual Friday, and wondering if I should just head over to the show that's now happening just 40 mins from where I'm standing. I could go, sell one of the tickets, make up the cost for both, and attend with my one remaining ticket. Or, I could go, sell BOTH tickets, and make a killing, minus gas expenses, of course. Or I could just go home and be out $200.

Hmm. Choices.

I just did a search on eBay for the murloc card. It's going for over $600 in some auctions.

Wait, scratch that. That's the baby murloc card.

The murloc suit card is going for $150ish.
