About our Con
In conjunction with SJG, ArmadilloCon will be featuring gaming on Saturday, August 9! We will have awesome gaming masters who will be running the games. There will be prizes for the tournaments and famous models will be offering food and drinks a la Greek grapes. (Well, no models, but we will have lots of fun.)
Sign up today to reserve your spot for gaming at ArmadilloCon! We will be featuring 4 gaming opportunities for Con members. We will have Chez Geek and Munchkins tournaments and also two RPGs: Discworld Roleplaying Game and Transhuman Space. (If our space fills up quickly in the RPGs, we will be opening additional games.)
We will also have a room devoted to open gaming. Board games will be supplied, but feel free to bring your own games to play with your old friends or complete strangers who walk in. Run by Marty Hoff. We will have the following games for your enjoyment: Settlers of Catan, Puerto Rico, Kill/Save Dr. Lucky, Elfenland, Taj Mahal, Attila, Web of Power, Lost Cities, Lord of the Rings, Trans America, Honeybears, Bluff, Frank's Zoo, Tichu, Tightrope, 6 Nimmt!, Balloon Cup, Can't Stop.
Rules: All games will be in the same room, so please be courteous to the other players. (In other words, don't get so loud that the elf doesn't realize there is a skeleton behind him about to smite him with a warhammer.)

All times are subject to change depending on game-time and applicants. The tournaments might run a little long.
In, 1986 William began D&D at a sprightly young man and has evolved into a slightly portlier game master. Since beginning gaming, he has played many, many different gaming systems, but has come to use GURPs for just about every game, prefering it's flexibility between gaming worlds. His gaming collection is slightly impressive to other gamers, and scary for pretty much everyone else. As a MIB for SJG, he run GURPS, Frag, Munchkin, and Chez Geek whenever possible.
I began my gaming career as many of us did with Dungeons and Dragons and AD&D, with a little Star Frontiers thrown in for good measure. Two decades later I'm still going strong. I was introduced to GURPS in college and have been an avid fan ever since.
I have been a gamer for more than 30 years. My main interest has always been D&D (sorry, Steve) I first learned D&D from the 5"x8" booklets and played with Dave Arneson several times. In Arneson's FIRST FANTASY CAMPAIGN, he refers to "Count Fang and the Fang-ettes". The Fangettes were my 2 dwarves, Frick and Frack, who became slave-vampires under the Count. I have play-testing credits from Steve Jackson for G.E.V., MELEE, WIZARD, and his first attempt at a role-playing system, THE FANTASY TRIP (remember Metagaming Concepts?). I was heavily into Magic:The Addiction, oops-I mean Gathering for several years and am still looking for a buyer for my collections. I worked for SJG for about a year and a half, in the casting department until ill health (oxymoron?) forced my resignation. Currently, I play MUNCHKIN, CHEZ GEEK, ILLUMINATI, D&D, CHAMPIONS, GURPS, HEROCLIX, M:TG, boardgames, and just about anything else I can. I have a 30 year collection of gaming paraphenalia and have (to have) one bedroom devoted to my hobby.
