I’m lucky enough to have a bunch of fantastic gaming conventions actually within easy driving distance of my house (alas, not so with sci-fi cons). One of those that I try not to miss is Dreamation in Morristown, NJ. It has the feel of a fan-run sci-fi con (which, if you’re not acquainted with science fiction conventions, is a good thing) and covers just about all aspects of gaming; RPGs, board games, miniatures, computer and console video games, LARPS, and card games. The hotel itself is spectacular, and the dining options in Morristown are really superb. Plus free parking! The convention itself is $60 for the weekend, which is quite reasonable for such an excellent convention. This year the convention will run February 23-26, 2012.
As usual, I’ll be running a bunch of games there, and will happily once again organize an OSR mini-con-within-the-con; let The Revenge of the Grognards begin! Here’s my list of games submitted:
- Ogre Miniatures (2 games)
- Adventures Dark and Deep – Castle of the Mad Archmage (1 game)
- Afrika Korps (the old Avalon Hill hex-and-counter wargame – 1 game)
- The Joy of Older Games (panel discussion)
If you would like to run an old-school game at Dreamation and have it included in my advertising efforts, when you submit your event registration to the convention –> HERE <– put “Part of the Revenge of the Grognards” in your description. Please also mention it in the comments below or send me an email and I’ll be sure to hump it when the time comes.
