Events & Play Wednesday - Cons & Gamedays for June

The big convention locally for those in Southeast Wisconsin and Northern Illinois is the Nexus Game Fair.  It takes place June 25th to 28th at the Crowne Plaza near the Milwaukee Airport.  Event registration is already open and some great games have seats available for those who'd like to be a part of this fun time!  I attended last year and will be there again in late June.  Learn more here.


Locally, this Saturday, May 30th, Lake Geneva Games is having a gameday with a mix of boardgames and card play (they always have some Magic tourneys going).  More information can be found here.


As always, the third Saturday and Sunday this month feature the Burlington Gameday on Saturday, May 16th, which sets up events through the Burlington UCC Game Day group on Facebook here and A Gathering of Gamers on Sunday, May 17th, set up by the South Lakes Area Gamers here.  The former is in Burlington, WI at the Plymouth UCC space and is free taking place from approximately 11 am to 5 pm.  The latter takes place at the Pizza Ranch in Elkhorn, WI, and requires a $12 fee for the all you can eat pizza and fried chicken buffet (salad bar, soft-serve ice cream machine, etc.) plus unlimited soft drinks and coffee from 11 am to 8 pm.  At the end of the month, on Saturday, May 30th, Lake Geneva Games is having a gameday with the details here.

Check out  North Texas RPG Con in Fort Worth, TX, from June 4th thru 6th.  Lots of Old School goodness can be found here.  Looks like Rapier Con is coming up June 12th - June 14th in the Doubletree by Hilton at the Jacksonville International Airport with more information here.  Open Gaming Convention, New Hampshire's Friendliest Gaming Convention, runs June 19th to 21st at the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel in Nashua, NH.  Find out more here.  A reminder from the folks at Con on the Cob that 2015 Game and Event Registration is happening now right here.
