Over the weekend Rick and I had the extreme pleasure of attending the 2nd annual Montreal Independent Games Festival (MIGF for short). As you might recall, I was actually a judge at last year’s event, but this year I was able to attend as a civilian and go at my own pace. Sadly, as we had another event later that day we didn’t end up getting to try all of the games, but I definitely saw a few things I’m…

Boutique Geekatorium: Profile & Style Guide

As of September of 2014, Montreal geeks finally have a store catering exclusively to their geeky style needs. Boutique Geekatorium is the brainchild of Cecilia Katan, a veteran geek crafter who decided to take the plunge and open a retail store specifically targeting geeky females (although they do carry lots of men’s and unisex items). Located in the heart of the Plateau on trendy rue St-Denis, Katan said she specifically opted for a lady-friendly look for the interior of the…
