Events & Play Wednesday - Cons & Gamedays for November

Locally, the first thing happening in November is First Sunday which also falls on November 1st.  It's a gameday at the Lake Geneva Games store.  They are located at 918 S Wells St, Lake Geneva, WI 53147 and their phone number is (262) 885-1515.  The event runs from Noon until 9 pm and is mostly about pickup boardgames though planning particular games is certainly acceptable.  There aren't any Magic Tourneys that day so there should be plenty of room.  Sign up for this event and discuss it further on Facebook here.


The third Sunday this month feature A Gathering of Gamers on Sunday, November 15th, set up by the South Lakes Area Gamers here.  The event 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.  There is also one Burlington Gamedays scheduled for next month, the third Saturday, November 21st.  They are set up through the Burlington UCC Game Day group on Facebook here.  It will be held in Burlington, WI at the Plymouth UCC space, taking place from approximately 11 am to 5 pm.


But the big news for November round these parts and most anywhere in the US if you travel for major conventions is GameHole Con 2015.  It's held on Nov. 6th - 8th, 2015 at the Alliant Energy Center Exhibition Hall in Madison, Wisconsin.  Get all of the details here.
