I went to a reception last night with N2H2, the BESS people. They had a nice get-together at Gameworks in Seattle. We got food, a couple of drink tickets, and an unlimited play card for all the games. I talked to them for a while. They’re very proud of the fact that they keep their database as open as possible while locking down what they have to. I run into BESS blockage all the time, but I understand the fence they balance on.

Sadly, my unlimited play card is probably wasted on me. I spent most of my time in the “classic” section, which is a small room with games like Pac-Man, Frogger, Missile Command, etc. I tried some of the other games, but I was just really bad at them. Oh well.
