C2E2 2020: Gail Simone is taking the train to Chicago and she wants fans to follow along on Twitter
To make things more interesting, Simone has partnered with a number of game companies who have sent her boxes of games to play during the trip
Comics legend Gail Simone will be appearing at C2E2 Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo 2020 and she has decided to make things a little more interesting this year with a train ride to Chicago. Simone announced her trip on Twitter on January 25 and she has invited fans to follow along with the hashtag #traintoc2e2.
"Holy moley, today is #traintoc2e2 day! Today we board the mighty @Amtrak EMPIRE BUILDER for two days across the country to get to Chicago, for @c2e2! It’s a trip I’ve wanted to take my entire life and you wonderful nerds are going with! :) HUZZAH!" Simone tweeted.
To make things even more interesting, Simone has partnered with a number of game companies who have sent her boxes of games to play during the trip. She will play them and post videos online. Simone will also give away Steam codes for full versions of games to some viewers and readers.
"What happened was, we thought it'd be fun to ask if games companies wanted us to try a game of theirs on the train, and we'd video it," she tweeted on February 23. "We had NO IDEA they would send BOXES of cool stuff. It's way too much for us to pack! But we'll cover all of it eventually..."
"We're doing a video of what they sent and you guys can help us pick what to take on the train," she continued. "@Wizkids said they were packing SPECIAL stuff just for the train ride, so that will be fun to unbox. AND! We have an extra cool thing, where we have been given a BUNCH of steam codes for full version games to give away to viewers/readers! I'm excited about that, details in the video as soon as it goes up! You may get a free awesome game from a great publisher!"
You can follow Simone on her trip using #traintoc2e2 on Twitter and she will also be posting some of the unboxing videos on her Youtube channel. This is already shaping up to be one of the most fun C2E2s ever and the event hasn't even started yet.
C2E2 2020 will be held at McCormick Place in Chicago starting on February 28 and ending on March 1.
