The Let's Play Gaming Expo, a convention built primarily around video games (though more physical games are well-represented) moved to a bigger venue this year, and that's a very good thing -- the Irving Convention Center parking garage was full soon after the doors opened on Saturday.

Sure, there was new stuff there. The Super Smash Bros. tournament was a big draw, as was the Street Fighter V tournament. But there was also a tournament for Crossfire -- Yes, the tabletop game/toy with the catchy commercial jingle.

You could stand in one spot and see 1) Someone playing the original Oregon Trail game on an old Macintosh computer, 2) Someone decked out in surgical gloves playing the classic board game Operation, and 3) Someone playing a Nintendo Switch. Turn your head just a little and you could also see a collection of classic arcade games (supplied by Rogue Synapse and Free Play Arcade), a vendor area where you could buy old Nintendo Entertainment System games and a tournament stage where competition was fierce.

You can see what it was like for yourself in the photos and (formerly live) video below.
