Our tiny taste of Tokyo will be transformed into an indie game paradise with multiple locations in the area bringing games of all sorts, be them video or card based. We here at TTDILA have been long time fans of IndieCade and can't wait to see what it'll be like in one of our favorite hang out spots in the city.

It's also the 10th Anniversary of IndieCade proper, so they best try and blow us away with some video game fun. Do we miss Culver City;first home to IndieCade? Yes. Did they pull it off at USC, last year? Yes. So, even if the location changes, they still know how to get games into the hands of fans and gamemakers.
