    Playtest games PnP Vassal TTS + 1 online

    One online LAN/Web/localhost game (online loaners and actual script files available by request, one open play copy already exists) for 2 to 6 players medium weight with a lot of hidden from other players information

    A couple of 2 player games (a heavy and a medium weight) in PnP+Vassal+TTS formats

    A couple of 2 to 6 player games in PnP+TTS formats (a medium weight and a casual weight)

    and even a simple card game using regular playing cards for 3 to 5 players

    -- I suppose we could also count the dominoes inspired totally untested 2 to 5 player thing (PnP+Vassal)

    Feedback would be appreciated. Online opponents would be a good thing. But, the games as they are right now, are available. Grab a copy if interested.

    Let me know if you want script files or need an online loaner assigned for The Singularity Trap game.

    Geekway Mini 2019

    Geekway Mini began in January of 2018 as a small-scale version of Geekway to the West. It happens at the Sheraton Lake Chalet at Westport - the same location that hosted Geekway for several years up until 2016. Geekway Mini is intentionally designed to be a much smaller event than Geekway to the West. While there are Play and Win games and Door Prizes, there are many fewer than at the main convention in May. There is no vendor area, there are no scheduled events, and the focus is entirely on open play.

    We keep Geekway Mini small for several reasons, but the main one is that this was conceived as a way for the organizers to enjoy Geekway without the incredible stress of running a convention for 3000 people.

    GenghisCon 42

    Billed as “the king of tabletop gaming conventions,” GenghisCon certainly reigns in terms of longevity. Now in its 41st year, it’s grown to be an impressive collection of gaming, miniatures, merchandise and cosplay. When Westword covered its fortieth anniversary last year, it was clear that this was an event that brought out the fun in February, and one that's well worth a roll of the dice.

  • Feb 22, 2019 Basildon, ENG Convention

    SoRCon

    SoRCon is run by an enthusiastic group of board-gamers. Whilst some of the committee members (the greyer looking ones) have been around the hobby for a long time; others are more recent to it (the less grey looking ones). In 2008, after attending a number of other events, SoRCon came into being.

    The games we tend to play are often referred to as ‘Eurogames’, and include ones such as Carcassonne, Dominion, Settlers etc. But we certainly don’t confine ourselves to such games. If you’re unable to bring your own games, we have a library of games that you can borrow from. In fact, many people will let you borrow their games if you ask nicely.

  • Mar 07, 2019 Lake Geneva, WI Convention

    Gary Con XI

    Gary Con is an annual game convention celebrating the life and works of Gary Gygax, the Father of Role Playing Games. We do this by doing what he loved so much in life, playing Games! Join Gary’s children, friends and fellow game enthusiasts as we celebrate a life well-played. Join us at the four-diamond Grand Geneva Resort and Spa in beautiful Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Lake Geneva was Gary's hometown and where he created Dungeons & Dragons and founded the company TSR, Inc in 1973!

    Gary Con began as an "Old School Renaissance" convention with a focus on games written during Gygax's ownership of TSR getting the most attention with many of the games run by designers who originally created the game such as Tim Kask, James M. Ward and Frank Mentzer. Gary Con expanded from its initial scope and embraces all aspects of tabletop gaming. In fact we have hundreds of D&D fifth edition events alone, and include Special Guests currently active in creating content such as Mike Mearls, Jason Bulmahn, Joseph Goodman and Stephen Chenault. You can meet and talk to artists such as Larry Elmore, Jeff Easley and Charles Urbach just to name a few. Come join the Gygax family celebration in Lake Geneva. Visit our website for more information, garycon.com.
