Play Games, Meet People, June 18-20, 2010
I'm on the board for a local convention called Go Play NW. We just opened up registration for 2010! Seriously, if you want to play some new games and make some friends, this is the convention for you.
Go Play NW started four years ago when I and the people I game with were regularly discovering and trying new games and having our minds blown by how much fun we were having. It seemed like people all over the country were doing the same thing, and putting together grassroots meetups to play them. That's where we got the idea to do one ourselves.
We've had some changes and additions in our crew since then, but the basic mission stays the same: play games, have fun, make friends.
