Gary Con XI: Wick’s Old Skool Menu

January 5th, 2019
Conventions, Gary Con, The WEGS Fray

Now in its eleventh year, Gary Con XI is held in honor of Gary Gygax and celebrates his “life well-played”. The convention is set in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, the town where the Gygax family lived, the first Gen Con was held, and TSR (the original publisher of Dungeons & Dragons) was based. It is run by the Gygax family and attended by many who played alongside Gary in the early days of the tabletop roleplaying game hobby.

NO-ROLL-ARK-KARDFor D&D fans, Gary Con is a destination gaming experience that cannot be beat! Below is the full menu of the events I am running there this year. Description blurbs for all of these events will follow in another post.

Overall, this is a good mix of old and new WEGS Old Skool Fantasy events. Designed for full-throttle sword-n-sorcery adventure, WOSF is heavy on the dungeon fun sauce. At some sessions, I’m playtesting a new intro system call the BOSS (Basic Old Skool System) which evokes an early D&D vibe. New players are welcome at all events. All rules taught!

There’s a few Shuffling Horror games creeping about the schedule, too, including the next Shuffling Horror release, Innsmouth 32, and a Pittsburgh 68 expansion called Cannibal Creeps (a special Gary Con sneak peek).

Something old, something new, and always something completely offbeat for our Gary Con friends and fans!
