Review of Cardboard*Con 4: Floating Away with the Rest of the Garbage (2013)

Cardboard*Con 4 followed the same route as 2012, beginning on the west side of Peachtree Street at Meehan’s Public House Downtown, from whence began our 2nd ANNUAL PARADE!! (which simply means crossing the street at marked crossings to go across the street to the next location, obeying all traffic laws)

In a first for a major Atlanta science fiction convention, Cardboard*Con stopped selling badjs and refused to sell them at the door. If you did not already have a badj you still could have come in and done everything, but without a badj. Life is complicated.

Rice cardboard from Tokushima Prefecture was unavailable until MAY, so this year’s panel on “sprightly honor cardboard challenge” was rescheduled until NEXT YEAR. Sorry folks, it’s been a hard winter for our friends at Grab Now Cardboard Happiness Corp.
