Dell Collins from SCARAB is our guest blogger for today:
Gaming for AtomaCon is being run by the South Carolina Area Roleplayers And Boardgamers (SCARAB). SCARAB travels all over the United Stated bringing our sponsors great games to events, retailers and gamers of all types.
For AtomaCon we are bringing a slightly different gaming experience than other conventions typically run. We are designing our schedule around entertaining, short play games so people who may have never gamed before can jump into and play without having to have any experience playing games before. This type of schedule was tried at XCon World by SCARAB and PAX Prime by Paizo this year to great success and we think it is a great fit for AtomaCon as well.
We will be bringing lots of board games from our library with us and one game in particular that we are bringing to run as a tourney is King of Tokyo from the awesome sponsor Iello. Winner will get a copy of the game! In addition we will be running a variety of roleplaying games and of course we will have the vastly popular Pathfinder Society.
We would be thrilled to have you attend and demo your favorite games, for those more experienced gamers please feel free to bring your own games and if you are an experienced roleplaying game master feel free to contact us if you would like to run your game at AtomaCon and we will get it on the schedule so players can begin signing up asap.
Are you a gaming newbie or just haven’t gamed in what seems like forever? That’s is awesome, come on out and let us introduce you to this wonderful hobby or for those who have been away from the hobby a while let us show you some of the hottest games being played today. We believe there is a game for everyone and we are happy to help you find the kind of game you like to play and get you started having fun.
Hours of the gaming room will mirror those of the convention: Friday 4pm-midnight; Saturday 10am-Midnight and Sunday 10am-4pm.
To see the full schedule as it develops and to reserve your seat at a scheduled game tune into the warhorn site at https://warhorn.net/events/
Don’t see a game you want to play on the schedule then please contact us and we will do our best to get that game on the schedule and remember we are going to have a chunk of our board game library with us that will allow you to check out a game and play ad hoc as much as you like.
