Scrum Con is launched!

DETAILS: Feb 16th 2019, Davis Hall, College Park, MD. AM and PM Sessions



The Second Saturday Scrum Club, my local gaming club, has moved out on our objective to run a small local gaming convention.  This being our first venture into something like this, we have started small.   You can now register to attend.  As I have mentioned previously, our intention is to make this an inclusive, laid back kind of event that focuses on both roleplaying games (RPGs) and Tabletop games (as we interpret the term, “a game where moving miniatures is a major part of the experience”).   The venue is DAVIS HALL, College Park, MD.  There are two “tracks” .. Roleplaying Games and Tabletop Games.. they are both somewhat evenly dispersed over two shifts

10 AM to 2 PM
3:30 PM to 7:30 PM

Our Guest of Honor is David “Zeb” Cook, of longstanding TSR fame, and you can both meet and play with Zeb in a specially written sequel  to a classic D&D module he wrote for TSR back in its heyday. 

We plan on serving food, which will be simple fare, but affordable (and there will be vegetarian options).

My event: JUNKWAFFEL- The Southern Cross. A Mad Maximillian 1934 adventure 

Going in to this convention it was assumed that the participating organizers (roughly five guys) would all put on events for the day, and volunteer to run the con when not running a game. Okay, I can handle that. Southern Cross is similar to the game I ran at Fall IN 2018, but the track will be somewhat reconfigured to facilitate more interaction between vehicles sooner.

A decidedly not-turbo-charged game of car combat set after the, not *that* one, the *other* one set back after World War One. Remember that? Gamers run races with up-armored motorcycles, buggies, jalopies, and junkers equipped with the finest early 1930s technology! Ford Model Ts, Hispano-Souzas, Fiats, and Packards take to the field firing cutting edge Lewis and Maxim guns. Feel the thunder!

I have space for ten players, and 3 are already signed up! Spaces are going fast. I hope to see you there!

Registration link is now in the green section at the top of the post. I have a map link further down but I guess I didn’t emphasize that either.
