Pop into Dragon's Lair on any given night and you'll see dozens of tables populated by men and women engaged in fantasy role-playing games, Magic the Gathering tournaments, and other esoteric card and board games. Look again and you'll see kids in their midst, too, playing along while also receiving gentle gaming mentorship from their companions and competitors. Hard proof that geeks are far from anti-social. Add to that the deep collection of anime and comic books and a friendly, helpful staff, and you've got fertile ground for the next generation of Comic Con attendees.
