Second Wave of Games

We’ve now completely filled two slots of six tables with spaces for 30-36 gamers on the day. Since the first wave of games, we’ve had another four submissions.

  1. Murky Waters, an adventure for The Cthulhu Hack.
  2. Guard of Honour, an adventure for Ars Magica.
  3. The Bishop’s Treasure, step into the world of the Medieval Outlaw in this Fate driven adventure.
  4. Breakout! – A Marvel Heroic adventure featuring the Avengers.

If you want to be in on it go sign up on the Winter Con 2020 page.

More games are coming, just waiting for the details, and we’ve now expanded the convention beyond its initial six table allocation, to twelve tables, taking over Fan Boy 3 for the day 🙂

Winter Con 2020 now Twice as Big

Winter Con has now doubled in size since we now have an additional six tables downstairs at Fanboy3, bring it up to a total of 12 tables over two slots (morning and afternoon) serving up a total of 24 games.

Now we just need some more players and Games Masters.

GPM dates for October, November 2019 and Jan 2020

It’s like buses this time out, with not one but three dates!  One of them is jolly exciting, so read on!

Sunday 27th October Our usual 1 pm to 5 pm meet up. If you want to GM contact me over the next couple of days and I’ll open player sign up on Sunday evening.

Sunday 10th November. Since this date is post-Grogmeet, a one-day RPG meet up mainly for old games, which runs on Saturday, I’m opening up attendance to Grogmeeters who’ve not yet fled Manchester to go home.

So if you are coming please let me know, by registering here.

I will be asking everyone to do this so I can plan GMs in advance to match numbers.

So far I have myself, Roderick and Chris (aka Dirk the Dice) who is Grogmeet organiser are down to GM. We need more GMs. So let me know if you would like to when you sign up.

December – No Go Play this month, while Fanboy is happy to have us. I’m going to be swamped with end of term school Christmas concerts.

GPM Winter Con 2019, Saturday 11th January.
To celebrate Go Play Manchester’s 1st Birthday, we shall be holding a one-day mini-con at Fanboy 3. 10 am start – 5 pm finish, with an hour or so for lunch. Two slots, with a possible social afterwards.

I floated this one past some of our regular GM’s so we’ve already got three or so GMs, but with Hedi offering all six tables on the ground floor and me inviting folk from far and wide, we are going to need more GMs. You lot get first dibs, but you need to let me know by return since when I announce it to the wider audience, I’m sure there be no shortage of offers.

Like the Nov GPM, I’m asking everyone to pre-sign via a form on the mini-con’s page.

(BTW advertise this page and let your friends know)

Like a normal GPM, all games will be pre-signed before the event, so you can sit down and play.

I am looking forward to seeing you on the day(s).

All the best
