Touhou Project is, at its core, a series of entertaining shmups that is notable for so much more. Whether it's the simple yet challenging gameplay, the stunning danmaku visuals, the truly profound music, the cute character designs, the utterly insane fanbase and its utterly insane volume of derivative fanworks, or the fact that the entire main series is created and operated by a single skinny alcoholic, Touhou is filled with non-stop entertainment for just about every palette. New fans will enjoy watching the games in action, while existing fans will enjoy learning about fanworks and possibly even official works they were previously unfamiliar with (as well as watching the new fans slowly descend into the same madness under which everyone else in the room already suffers). Just to get an idea of how insane the fanbase is, in addition to the official shmup and fighting games, the fanbase has created a wealth of their own games, with some more notable ones being based on popular existing series such as Mario, MegaMan, Castlevania, and the SaGa series. Young and old, new and experienced, whatever your reasons for attending, we'll be glad to see you there!
