  • Re: Which games would you recommend for beginners?

    I'll give you a suggestion that's out of the standard mix here (not that these aren't good suggestions)... Try one of our BYOV LARPs. Yes, they are 'live action role-playing', but don't let that fool you into thinking that it's full of vampires or weird rules or anything hard...

    [quote user="Kyaria"] If I had $40 to spare I'd so be there! [/quote] Ah, that's just one dinner/drinks night at Scotty's, or one game in the exhibitors' hall. :)

  • Re: Solo Attendees / First Time at GenCon

    Ooh ooh! Let me point out also, because they don't conflict, that Steampunk costumes would be very welcome and very fitting in The Funeral of Edward Hannigan - Event Link The Dust Bowl, 1935. A funeral in a small town in Kansas, as a Black Blizzard approaches. Is this the end of the world? Friday...

  • Re: MISSED OUT? GMs, post open events here!

    Awesome. I just figured that it might help people looking for events for the moment if all or some of the pimping was centralized :) I'm from Iowa, where we caucus. If you don't have a ticket for my event, let me convince you why you should :)
