In the past I have made two posts on Events & Play Wednesday on the last two Wednesdays of the month, the first highlighting the events I attended and the next featuring upcoming events, locally and further afield. Starting today, I am going to be combining those posts which will include up front a couple of links to where I have uploaded the pictures from the events of the last month that I have attended then expounding on future events.
Lots of gaming in and around Lake Geneva and Southern Wisconsin. Here are some pictures taken at the various events, many of them at Lake Geneva Games (Facebook page here)! Check out more pictures on my Facebook album here and a Google Photos album here.
Locally, make plans to go to Second Sunday which falls on March 13th 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 encouraged. Sign up for this event and discuss it further on Facebook here. There will also be a Burlington Gameday scheduled for March on the third Saturday, the 19th, with details at 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. All are welcome! The third Sunday in March features A Gathering of Gamers on the 20th, 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.
Of course the big news is Gary Con VIII, happening this year at the Grand Geneva Resort in Lake Geneva, WI, over the first weekend of March There's always plenty of gaming to be had even if you don't preregister, so come on over to the big show and rub elbows with designers and gaming legends from every era. Just check out the special guest list here!
And don't forget that March Fo(u)rth is GM's Day! It's the day we celebrate the wonderful people who prep the games we love to play. There's a Facebook page for GM's Day here and a Facebook event setup here.
