      Vicki, as far as what kinds of games we play, I think the best way to answer that is show example of what we have. ONe of our members, skaboy greene, usualy does a write up of all the games that at least he sees folks playing. Here's an example from last month's BLOC Meetup. http://boardgamegeek....­

      As far as the particular even mentioned here, which isn' an offical BLOC meetup but a reminder of an area "gaming convention" this event has an entry fee, but its worth it in my opion. (I believe the folks who run it are one of BLOC's sponsors that helps pay the yearly fee to have the Meetup group and gives us prizes and such, as well as the chance to win prizes and stuff at the "con". Actually boardgame and RPG events that will occur are listed on their "website" http://wintercon.webs...­ I hope this helps.

    October 29, 2013

    • Matt K.

      Not yet. The Gaming Directors are compiling their lists in the next week or two or three. They have real jobs; hence the uncetainty. The events wil be posted on http://www.wintercon....­ as they get scheduled. Check back often as updates get posted.
