GaryCon Continued

The GaryCon meme really seems to have taken off--I've seen it on a ton of different blogs, message boards, and websites. If you haven't posted it yet, or haven't talked to someone about getting a game together this weekend, hey, there's still time! We still have a few hours until that Friday whistle blows! At work, at school, at the comic book store--you never know who's a gamer, who was a gamer, or perhaps most importantly--might want to try their hand at gaming. By the way, I mentioned a few free games yesterday, my esteemed colleague, The Evil DM, did likewise, with a few different titles.

Hey, I think it'd be great if a million dice clatter together in a symphony this weekend. But so long as you're having fun wherever you're at, making lasting friendships, and just enjoying the heck out of life, I think Gary'd approve.

Personally, I've got this great 5-room mini-dungeon I've been plotting out. (I need a suitable Gygaxian treasure at the end, but I've got awhile to decide on that). If you're looking to do a dungeon crawl, but a mutliple-level dungeon worries you or isn't quite your speed, check out this great article by Johnn Four on Creating 5-Room Dungeons. He makes some great points and gives some excellent advice.

Game On!

I celebrated GaryCon with my 6 year old son and 4 year old daughter by playing some D&D super lite.

We had a great hour!

That's fantastic!!!

My 9 year-old and I went thru an amazing dungeon that we randomly generated together. He wants to run his dwarf again as soon as he can!

Bad ass, Zach!

This is just perfect for a GaryCon dungeon I'm running today.
