Ubercon: Edison, NJ Nov 5-7

Is anyone interested in attending some AD&D games at Ubercon this year? I just got a very nice invitation from the good folks who run it.

I'm sort of on the fence on this one, as it's the weekend after Halloween, which is usually the Big Season around the Casa de Grognard, and thus good for sleeping in for the first time in a month, but if there is interest I am more than willing to run a couple of sessions.

What would not be on the table: Castle of the Mad Archmage. I've run this a BUNCH of times at Dreamation and Dexcon over the last couple of years, and feel it might be time to take a breather. I was thinking maybe some classic dungeon modules. Tomb of Horrors went over very well at this year's Dexcon. Giants/Drow perhaps, as a tourney? I might also put together some classic board games. It's been literally decades since I've played Titan, for example.

Anyway, if you're in the NJ/NY area, let me know if you'd be interested in playing in a game or two run by me. Make it quick, though; I'd like to get in an application soon, if I'm going to do it.

And, of course, I know they'd be thrilled to have some other Old School games represented there. They explicitly mentioned it in the email. I would play in some classic Gamma World for sure.

Alas I won't be in NJ in Nov, Joe, but our Dec dates are shaping up around ~18 Dec to to ~1 Jan or so. I'll keep you posted as our tickets come together.

If it was one weekend later, I would have been totally down. The first week in November is when I'm moving from Ft. Carson back to the Poconos, so that weekend will be the first time my fiancee gets me to herself in a long time.

I'll be back east for a few years, so please keep us posted on NY/Philly area cons, I can make it to both in the future.

Unfortunately, it seems like I won't be running any games at Ubercon this year.

Maybe I'll do the Giants series at Dreamation...

We've been riding a wave of Gamma World enthusiasm over at New York Red Box, so I may well rise to that challenge! I'll definitely be interested in playing AD&D if I make it out, and will post about it at the NYRB forums as well in case others are interested in making the trek.
