PICNICON XV: Friday, June 28th at 6:00 pm -> Sunday, June 30th at 6:00 pm
- PicniCon XV: Into Dorkness! Well, thank goodness, another Trek movie, so we get
a good subtitle.
For our new members, Picnicon is Bostongamers annual gathering, a weekend of
good games, good friends, and good food!
In the home of BostonGamers' benevolent Dictator, Vivian Abraham. We are in
Somerville, the Gaming Nexus, reasonably close to the T. The address is 11
Fenwick Street, #2, easily accessible by bus from Sullivan Station and Davis
Square, a few blocks walk from the bus to/from Lechmere. We have _some_ parking
available as well. Let us know if you are coming via car in advance, and we can
arrange for Somerville party permits.
Friday, June 28th at 6:00 pm -> Sunday, June 30th at 6:00 pm

WHAT TO BRING:
There's both crash space and facilities to cook and store food, so bring
sleeping bags if you're crashing and either food to cook or money to order out
or chip in for groceries.
Viv and I will be cooking and others are welcome to join us. I (Daniel) will
provide many, many buffalo wings Friday evening, as is traditional. A note on
alcohol: you are welcome to bring it, we usually have a big game of Baron
Munchausen one night which involves lots of drinking, but we reserve the right
to collect keys and/or cut folks off if necessary. Plus, if you bring Sambuca,
you must take it back with you! We have too much from previous years.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Everyone should come prepared to play and/or run a game, bring board games, or
do something to make it fun for everyone - unlike many gaming conventions, this
is a group-participation event, so don't hesitate to join in and plan some
events! They'll be lots of willing people to help!
On the slate this year:
* The traditional (and infamous) late-night Baron Munchausen game (tall tales
in the grand manner),
* Circumstances willing, a grand game of Encore, the team singing and lyrics
* [insert your game here]
If you want to run a scheduled game at PicniCon, please send me an email with:
* The name of the game
* The number of players you want
* The system
* If you're using pre-generated characters or want people to bring them
* How long you expect the game to run
We'll still have room for pickup games, but we want to put some games on the map
LET US KNOW!
Allergies: There are three cats, one nice (Ivanova), one nippy (Miles), one
cuddly (Loki). No, you cannot take Loki home. Please notify me of any food
allergies and/or restrictions, and we'll do our best to accommodate.
Kids of All Ages: Welcome! The boy plays Ticket To Ride, Innovation, Ingenious,
Dominion, Rumis, and anything he can get his hands on...and will want to play
with you. Feel free to play or refuse. [Proud sponsors of the Geek Parent
Stuff: We are set on folding tables and chairs.
Games: Bring _some_ games, but not _all_ your games. Feel free to send me a
list of the games you want to bring, and I'll coordinate to reduce the number of
multiple copies. For example. we're cool on Cosmic Encounters (the new new one
with the expansion).
Just drop me an email and any difficulties can be overcome.
