Greetings fellow Necronomicon fans! We're 3 weeks out from the convention and last minute preparations are underway. We still have a number of openings at our gaming info table, so for anyone who still needs hours toward their free membership, please visit the site and sign up to help us out. Shifts can be as little as an hour at a time. Duties are simple, answering basic questions on the gaming department, signing up GMs for open tables and putting out sheets for the gamers to sign up and play. We also have added another position for the Gaming Library. That person is responsible for checking in/out games from our lending library.
We have a record number of sponsors this year and our gaming program book has expanded by 8 pages. Be sure to grab your copy at the convention. You never know there might be some surprises in there for you. Visit our sponsor page to see all these great companies and click their logo to visit their site: http://www.necrogaming.org/sponsors.html
Do you wear contact lenses? If you have a valid prescription we have a contest for you. Visit gaming info to sign up to win one of 5 pairs of costume contact lenses provided by our new sponsor www.extremesfx.com
. We're thrilled to have them onboard. Look in the gaming program for a special 20% off coupon code for them as well.
Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter during the convention, you never know when we might have an impromptu contest for some great prizes.
Guidebook: Once again we will be using Guidebook for a digital program guide. New this year, gaming is going to have their own program track in Guidebook, so panels & games will be separated for ease of use.
Thanks to our Steve Jackson MIBs for hosting Cheating For Charity on Sunday during the convention. Visit http://www.necrogaming.org/charity-game.html
to read all about it and see the prize loot they are giving away to the winner.
Gaming Library: Once again Necro Gaming will have our Gaming Library! All you have to do is go to the Gaming info table, ask to see the gaming Library, pick a Game, and go have fun. Our staff will ask you write your name and convention badge number on the sign-out sheet. Keep an eye out for the “PLAY TO WIN!” label on some of the Library games. Everyone that signs out one of these games will have their names put in a raffle to win the game at the end of the con!
Gaming Panels: We have a record 5 gaming related panels this year! Pick up your gaming program book and on page 4 you'll find a list of all the panels.
LARPS: This year we've listed the scheduled LARPs in the program book (page 4) for your convenience.
For all you Pathfinder fans we have professional writer Brendan LaSalle from Goodman Games running Xcrawl: Boston Crawl with Pathfinder rules on Saturday.
Don't see the game you want to play on the schedule? We still have some open slots for onsite pickup games. Just visit the gaming info table to sign up the time slot that you are interested in. You can sign up a private game for your and your friends or an open game for any attendees to play.
