Meet new people. Play new games. Madison Games Day, May 30th 2009.|
Matt M. McElroy (of Flames Rising and DriveThruComics.com) and Jason L Blair (designer of Little Fears) announce Madison Games Day, a ten-hour event dedicated to introducing Madison-area residents to meet new people and play new games.
Madison Games Day will take place on Saturday, May 30th 2009 at the Pizza Oven on Monona Drive. From 12p until 10p, Madison-area gamers are invited to stop in, meet local players, and try new games. A variety of games are slated for play and attendees are urged to bring their own as well. Have a game you want to try but your regular group isn't into? Bring it! Have a hankering to dust off an old favorite for one more spin? Bring it! Want to give a game you weren't sure about another shot? Bring it! There is an official event schedule but pick-up games are encouraged. If you have something you want to run or play, bring it along!
If you have games you no longer play or wish to own, bring them too! A table will be available for attendees to display copies they're looking to sell or trade.
