Not a bad showing, but I would have liked to see a little more variety. Still, it’s good to see some of the old games represented. Unfortunately due to a variety of circumstances I’m only able to run two games this year, Inverness and Ogre Miniatures are mine. Yes, that’s right, someone else is running Adventures Dark and Deep! Too cool!
The convention will be held in conjunction with DexCon, the premier East Coast gaming convention, on July 4th weekend in Morristown, NJ. Full details, including registration info, can be found here. Unfortunately the convention hotel is sold out, but there are plenty of other hotels in Morristown.
