M to the I to the D I maze!

Why not start off your con with a little uncertainty and anxiety? Join King Midi and Prime Minister Midi for the latest installment of the Midimaze setup and test run party! Oh sure, we actually check over the equipment now and we even set it up Thursday night. Still, there's no guarantee the Midiring will actually work without the required blood sacrifices that we like to call meticulous playtests. Get a little practice in and demand your favorite options from the friendly Midimaze staff! Download the maze creation tools (thank you Mike Miller and ESG Labs) off the Con of the North website and bring in everyone's new favorite mazes on a floppy disk (or email them to jabeecher@netzero.net)! Use way too many parentheses in a sentence, or learn to run Midimaze and dink around with the settings yourself! As always, no one knows how many computers older and more world-weary than Lindsay Lohan will blow up! You can, at this event alone, break a joystick.
