Game-a-thon Dates for 2013

()

We've finalized the dates for the 2013 SWA Game-a-thons.  All of these are Saturdays.  Please mark your calendars now!

January 12
February 9
March 9
April 13
May 11
June 8
July 13
August 10
September 14
October 11-13: Council of Five Nations
November 9
December 14

Typically, Game-a-thon is the second Saturday of each month. However, we have to work around scheduling conflicts with the Studio of Bridge and Games.  We also try to not schedule in conflict with other gaming conventions (but it inevitably happens once in a while, despite our best efforts).  If you see a conflict we should know about, please reply to this message and let us know.

We'll be updating the Game-a-thon pages on the SWA web site soon (click here).  Check in for full info on each event as it becomes available.

We hope to see you at many SWA gaming events in 2013.

We had another unfortunate cancellation this month.  Dominant Species is out, but we have a different evolution game, Primordial Soup, to take its place.

We're also in top gear with our Council of Five Nations planning.  We should have over 150 events this year, and we're looking for Game Masters.  If you're interested, please check out our GM Registration page.

Here's the full schedule for the August 13th events...

Morning Session ( 11am - 4pm )

Evening Session ( 5pm - 10pm+ )

Game-a-thon: Saturday, July 9, 2011

We've got a triple-special SWA Game-a-thon planned for Saturday, July 9th. 
What does "triple special" mean?

First, we have a special opportunity for you to playtest a board game and get your name in print when it gets published.  Long-time SWA member Dave Cuatt has published  games for Fiery Dragon.  You can see two of his previous titles, Army of Ireland and The Marcher Lords, by clicking here.  Please check out the Bloodtide game in the 11am time slot if you'd like to help out with some playtesting.

Second, we have an extra-big schedule of games on the schedule - fourteen!  Lots of very good stuff to choose from.

Third, July is a quarterly Swap Meet month.  You can click here to see the forum on the SWA web site of some stuff that people are bringing to sell.  If you're bringing stuff too, please post a list there as well.  The more lists that get posted, the more potential shoppers that we will draw.

1-2-3 = Triple Special!

Here is the full schedule of events...

Morning Session ( 11am - 4pm )
Evening Session ( 5pm - 10pm+ )

For more information, including full event descriptions, click here for the July Game-a-thon page.

We have two special event tracks at the May 14th SWA Game-a-thon.

First, we have a two-session full game of "Here I Stand", an SWA favorite.  Register soon, as we expect this to be popular.

We also have six(!) tables of Pathfinder Society RPG, three in the 11am slot and three in the 5pm slot.  And to make it extra special, we have Art Lobdell coming as an honored guest GM.  Art is the guy who has been helping grow the popularity of Pathfinder at Council and other Northeast conventions for years.

And, of course, we have lots of other good stuff on the schedule too.  Please take a look...

Both Sessions ( 11am - 10pm+ )

Morning Session ( 11am - 4pm )
Evening Session ( 5pm - 10pm+ )
