TOPIC: Space Games! (Madison WI March 23rd-25th)

Space Games! (Madison WI March 23rd-25th) 11 Feb 2018 14:31 #263400

I'm doing a Space Games weekend at my house in Madison WI, Friday evening March 25th, Sat 11am-Midnight) Sunday until 3pm

Background:
I live in a suburb of Madison WI these days, and we have a regular crew that come from the area - most Saturdays we have 10-12 players.
I wanted to do a more planned, themed thing (copying a local person's event of past years!) - and have a mini-con, where you will know ahead of time what games, and when, when meal times are, and there is no waffling on who is playing what, and when and where. Our house is pretty well suited for events, biggest I've thrown was a summer party (lots of backyard!) with 70 people! We have 2 full sized dining room tables, 1x 3x8 plastic long, 1x 4' round table for space.

We're using both Facebook (for convenience) and a Google Spreadsheet shared that people can use.

Would be awesome if any Fatties could show up - I honestly don't know where the fuck most of you all live these days (Shellhead is 5 hours away though!). Other than inviting people through Facebook, though not sure how to do the coordination - so if people are interested, I can either invite you through there, or if you don't do the Book-of-Faces, I can try to figure out how to cludge together the content here. Assuming anyone is actually interested, as I think a lot of people are East-Coasties?
Who - A variety of random gamers - mostly mid-20s to 40s.
What - Space games - from High Frontier to X-Com
Where - Middleton, a suburb of Madison WI - House has cats and dogs, so you will die if you're allergic.
Why - Because SPACE IS FUCKING COOL
When - End of March, to give people time to plan/travel
Google Docs Spreadsheet - Work in Progress

Well shit. Sounds great, and I'm only 15 minutes away (Atwood neighborhood). But, I'll be in Morocco.

Let me know next time you do one of these though!

Yeah, I'm a professional level lurker. Read the forums daily, but for whatever reason, I'm not much of an active participant in internet discussions.

The big question is if TK is going to bring some fuggin’ ANDROMEDA to this thing.

Also expecting Duck Dealer to make an appearance.

Why do I have to live on the other side of the country? This sounds entirely my kind of thing! I buy space games like it’s a second occupation, I might need to steal this idea.

I'm ok with Ben Affleck playing Batman. At least there will be a better director on set.
