Conventions


Bubble Helmets and Furious Fists

I dedicated last weekend to punching ghosts and shooting robots. Last weekend was Tacticon, one of my favorite local game conventions. While attendance seemed down from previous years, it was great to see the extended gaming family again, and to run some Savage Worlds for players outside my usual gaming group. I ran Ghost Punchers…

Printing and Punching

The print version of Ghost Punchers is now available! The metaphorical trigger I mentioned last week has now been pulled. Ghost Punchers, the roleplaying game of supernatural investigation and violence, is now available via print-on-demand at DriveThruRPG. I’ve got a copy of the soft-cover edition in my sweaty mitts even as I type this (which…

Soon.

Update: Soon is now! The print version of Ghost Punchers is now available for purchase. Yay! Why yes, that is a picture of the long-promised and long-delayed print version of Ghost Punchers! But no, it’s not available for purchase just quite yet. This is my first outing with physical products, so I want to double-check…

Once More into the Cons, my Friends!

What do you mean, it’s almost time for Genghis Con again? Didn’t we just have one of those, like, a month ago? I mean, I’m glad it’s around the corner. I always have a great time, but sheesh, give me some time to catch my breath, eh? Or maybe it’s just the illusion of time…

Stung by Gaming – In a Good Way!

As I obliquely mentioned on Friday, this past weekend was the debut of B-Con, a tabletop board game convention in Denver. In addition to the standard “sign up and play” events, the show also featured lots of both open gaming and prototype games from local designers and publishers. No, I didn’t bring my Haunted Hotel…

Return of ThanksGaming: This Time It’s Personal

One of the things I love about tabletop gaming is how it fosters a community. It’s especially awesome when that community can give back to the local community around it. Gamers Giving is a non-profit organization dedicated to exactly this sort of thing. One of its largest events each year is ThanksGaming, a sort of…

New Blood

This past weekend, I had the privilege of speaking on a couple panels at the second annual Fort Collins Comic Con. (Unofficial motto: “We’re bigger than you think!”) The panels were all about running tabletop roleplaying games. Together with Bill Keyes, Sean Patrick Fannon, and Ross Watson, we answered questions from the surprisingly-large crowd about…

Conclave of Punchers

Over the weekend, I had the privilege of attending Conclave of Gamers, a local convention dedicated to tabletop gaming. It was a smaller, friendly con with lots of open gaming, and a few highlights for yours truly. I ran my Ghost Punchers roleplaying game twice, and had a blast both times. Judging from their laughter…

Conclave of Swashbucklers and Ghost-punchers

Spring strode into Colorado, got pelted with a few million snowballs, staggered back, then cautiously sneaked back into the state like a rabbit at a coyote convention — and you know what that means: convention season is here again! I’ll be kicking off my own personal convention season at Conclave of Gamers (April 21-24). Unlike…
