    That was definitely the most fun I’ve had online in a while. I did quite a bit of laughing out loud, and I mean that literally. I’m certainly planning to attend again next year. 😀

  • Jeanne Carroll

    I just had the most wonderful time at this event. So much to do and play. The simming was very creative and the games to play were fun and insightful. The whole experience was great and I can’t wait for next year. Thanks for a great day.

  • I had a absolutely wonderful time! Well done to everyone involved, definitely plan to attend next year!

  • Ed Brown

    What an event! Great attendees, great session leaders… looking forward to taking part next year! 🙂 Absolute pleasure to chair!

  • Alex

    That was really awesome! Well done everyone. Thanks!

  • Kim

    It was my first time participating at FallFest and for my Support Team (half of the Team were participating), the first time we did a chat-based RPG using our setting. Fantastic response from the simming community. Can’t wait for 2014. Count us in for anything… in fact, if our website is live and ready to go, we’d even be honoured to host!

  • MeganLeigh

    I loved the discussions. It’s a great way for people to share what they know on a subject and then have everyone discuss what they, themselves, do. Tips, tricks, and advice can be shared back and forth that way.

  • Fsf Sail

    I can always tell just how successful a gathering is by just how pained I am to have to leave it. The discussions were really very well put together and enjoyable. I was most unhappy when the dreaded RL pulled me away. Thank you all for hosting such a fine event!

  • Elena

    It was interesting to discuss about relationships and missions and NPCs,,, and find people who make interesting points. i even won a set of trading cards!
