So ... irrationalrobot has asked me about going to a game con in Portland (okay, it's really in Vancouver, but why not refer to its pretty neighbor rather than the sleazy heart of Washington white trash?) the weekend of the 24/25. I was thinking about going to SEAF on Friday, but that leaves Saturday open for mayhem in the south. Now, mind you, whoever's running Gamestorm can apparently neither keep their servers paid for or figure out how to keep them running, but my guess is that it won't affect the con.
"GameStorm 8 is now scheduled for March 24-26, 2006 at the Red Lion at the Quay in Vancouver, WA."
The games I saw before the site went down were Bus Stop / Strangers on a Bus, Mines of the Eye (High APL), Live to Love Again (LG), Chez Grunt, Beer Money, a "Munchkin Regional Tournament Qualifier" (snicker) , and, er "MechWarrior" (the devil!).
Anyone interested? It sure looks a hell of a lot cheaper than NorwesCon.
