this meetup will be Sunday at noon, in the Hilton lobby
(there are these "conversation nooks"
there for potential actual gaming). If the group gets too big, we will simply go upstairs to the 5th floor of that same hotel
. Also, there's a Facebook event page for this: http://www.facebook.com/events/214788265315130/
Oh sure, there are gatherings/photoshoots for video games and MMORPGs, but what about games of the non-electronic variety? You know, card games, board games, pen-and-paper RPGs, that kind of stuff.
I'm asking because a friend and I plan to be cosplaying characters from the card game "Red Dragon Inn" for the earlier part of Sunday (read: before
3pm). While of course other "Red Dragon" characters and characters from, say, "Magic: the Gathering", "Warhammer", or "Munchkin" are welcome, this shoot would be open to anyone from any non-video game. The Clue suspects (e.g. Colonel Mustard) count, as do Uncle Pennybags (the Monopoly mascot), characters from Candyland (e.g. Queen Frostine, King Kandy, Princess Lolly, Mr. Mint), face cards from a standard deck (whether it's one like this
or more like this
), and chess pieces (this
for example). Yes, even those dartboard
, and checkerboard
costumes (as dresses or otherwise) count. And of course, any "Dungeons & Dragons", "Shadowrun", "World of Darkness", etc. characters are welcome. Would anyone be interested?
