ARGFest-o-con 2011 Bloomington

The ARG Museum had a display of collected Alternate Reality Games artifacts in Bloomington at ARGFest 2011!

It was a hands-on look at some of the amazing talent that went into the design of many of these objects - from newspapers, to puzzley items, to character heirlooms - you name it! This is the stuff that helps to make ARGs that much more real and tangible.
