I’m off to one of my favourite local cons this weekend, Gamealot. Not so coincidentally started and run by one of my favourite game stores, Mission: Fun and Games, Gamealot has grown from an in-store event to filling the Kinsmen Club in St. Albert. Despite its growth it has managed to keep an intimate community-driven feel that I love in my game cons. It is one of my two main board game cons, and calendar-wise it balances out nicely against Spring’s GOBFest. Plus there is an excellent family-friendly atmosphere, helping to ensure our next generation of board gamers. I’ll be there with my buddy Dave from The Rat Hole, as both of us are reps for Cheapass Games. We’ll be running a variety of demos and small tournaments both days. Still plenty of tickets available, so come on out and play some board games this weekend!
In Extra Life news, thank-you so much to everyone who has donated and shared my donation link. Because of all of you I am now just over halfway to my $1000 goal, with a few weeks left until the day. Please follow the link and donate, any amount helps, and you can do some cool things to either come play D&D with me or affect the game if you don’t want to play. I’m super excited about game day, though sign-up for the game has been a bit sparse. But I have a back-up plan in case the D&D game doesn’t come off the way I’d like, so there will be gaming of one kind or another.
That’s my quickie update for this week. Have fun, play games, and maybe I’ll see you across the table this weekend.
