MaricopaCon 2014 Report

MaricopaCon 2014 Report

  This weekend I attended our local gaming convention. MaricopaCon is funded through Kickstarter and this is its second year. Trask and I attended last year so I thought it would make a good warm-up for GenCon in two weeks. The convention runs Saturday and Sunday, but I only attended Saturday. The selection of games […]

Phoenix Comicon 2014 Gaming Report

Pathfinder. I knew going in that Pathfinder overwhelming scheduled more games than any other RPG, so the many Pathfinder tables did not surprise me at all. That said, there was a smattering of other board and card games, including the surprisingly good “Lords of Waterdeep” and a fairly slick, but not my taste online CCG […]

Vul-Con Trophies Are Amazing!

Vul-Con, the gaming convention taking place in Phoenix, Arizona on February 25th and 26th posted a shot of the amazing trophies for their main events. Roman swords!

Phoenix Comicon 2011-- A Gamer's Perspective

Phoenix Comicon 2011– A Gamer’s Perspective

Phoenix Comicon 2011 was my first comic book convention, so I write this post with no real baseline for comparison.  I started in the exhibitors area, just to check out what was for sale because my wallet seems to open more freely at conventions. Must be something in the $4.00 bottles of water.  The vendors […]

Trask Invades Phoenix Comicon for Gaming Action

I am not normally one to attend comic/pop culture conventions, but one of my regular gaming group notified me that there is substantial gaming at Phoenix Comicon this year. With this information I acquired media credentials and decided to drop by this Saturday.  Other than my usual reporting duties, I may sneak in a game […]

Vul-Con Arena 1 at Gamers’ Inn Aprils 2nd, 2011 in Mesa, AZ

Vul-Con, the newest game convention in the southwest is not until February 2012, but that has not stopped them from running some warm-up “arena” events. I am a sponsor of the convention and hope that interested gamers in the Phoenix, Arizona area would drop by for some gaming action.  Here are the games on offer […]

Free Advice to Game Publishers: How to Demo a Role-Playing Game at a Convention

Free Advice to Game Publishers: How to Demo a Role-Playing Game at a Convention

I specifically went to Gen Con 2009 seeking new games. Almost every slot I played was a “no experience required” event and everyone at the table was totally new to the game world and system. After four days of demos and intro games run by game publishers I noticed some serious deficiencies with how the […]

Tankfest 2009–A Tank Convention

I had to post about this because it is just interesting and generally makes me sad I no longer live in the UK. The Tank Museum in Dorset, UK is doing a weekend event of historical education, reenactments  and most importantly, driving around in World War II era tanks. I am not biggest fan of […]

Gamer Tools Review: The ZÜCA Wheeled Bag

The ZÜCA is quite possibly the world’s best gamer bag for convention goers. Trask has been asking me to do a review for a while. He even featured it in this year’s ‘10 Christmas Gift Ideas for a Role-Playing Gamer‘ due to all my man-love speech. So, without further ado, I will begin… Trask and […]
