As always, the third Saturday and Sunday this month feature the Burlington Gameday on Saturday, August 15th, which sets up events through the Burlington UCC Game Day group on Facebook here and A Gathering of Gamers on Sunday, August 16th, 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. The Burlington gang also has a second gameday set up for Saturday, August 1st, this month, so check that out too!
Further from my locale . . .
Of course, the big news is Gen Con Indy. If you aren't already there, there's still time to hop in the car or grab a plane to the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, IN, to check out Indie Publishers and more established ones, indeed. Check out their website for more details here.
And don't forget that Friday at Gen Con, Mike Selinker will be hosting the ENnies awards for RPG products of the last year. Get some details on that even here.
