ETA: 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, Twister, 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?

Do you have specific plans for this? I know there is a group from the Warhammer 40K universe marching in the parade on Saturday, don't know how many plan to be suited up on Sunday as well.

I think it was last year there was a Clue group. They posed in my booth so they had a photoshoot for in the Library.

It was 2010. Thank you so much for playing along!

I have a Magic the Gathering costume I'm pretty pleased with, but I'd need more concrete plans (i.e. A time and a place) before I could commit to a photo shoot. Sunday mornings are fairly open, but I'm pretty much nonsto on Sundays after 2 or 3.

I will pack my Phantom Monster costume then! Hope I get it together enough to see you Sunday.
