Over the next month, we will be updating a full, 4 day schedule of events and open play that provide new and exciting entertainment for the new gamer and the veteran gamer alike.
Before I get in to the games, let me tell you about two awesome board game Publishers: Calliope Games and Cheapass Games. Both of these companies are going above and beyond for us at Metrocon this year.
Calliope Games produces Tsuro, Tsuro of the Sea, Roll for it, 12 days, and several other fantastic games. They are also sending us a Life Sized Tsuro board for us to play with.
Cheapass Games makes Red Dragon Inn, Kill Dr Lucky, and Lord of the Fries.
Here is a brief run down of the events for the weekend:
Magic: the Gathering – Scheduled Drafts, Demo times, Eldrich Moon “release event”
Hobby Miniatures Demonstrations for: Warmachine / Hordes, Guild Ball, Malifaux, and Kings of War
Role-Playing Games: Dungeons and Dragons introductory adventures and Pathfinder Society Modules.
Board Game events both scheduled and open play.
Like last year, there will be a fee to check out board games from our Demo Library. 100% of fees collected will go to Michelle’s Kids, a local 501c3 Charitable Organization which helps local military families with Holiday gifts and expenses.
Can’t wait to see you there!
