Come play games at Strategicon Gateway 2014!


For those of you who don't know, there's a great local convention of more than a thousand gamers that happens three times a year. It's called Strategicon, and this weekend is Gateway 2014, and it will be held at the Hilton near LAX.

The full con badge is $50, or $45 if you are a member of many groups or sites such as board game geek. Day passes are $15 for Friday and Monday, and $30 for Sat/Sun.

Sign up for all the cool events you want, and feel free to sign up for our games as well!

Chaosmos: We'll have an easy to find demo table in the hall adjacent to the dealer room. We're also running a small tournament Saturday at 5pm and Sunday at 2pm. If you haven't played Chaosmos before, sign up for the tournament, but definitely try a demo of the game earlier, so you can get up to speed.

Knee Jerk: Andrew Federspiel's brand new party game will be running Friday from 3-7pm and Monday from 11am-3pm. Knee Jerk is about making up endings to funny situations as fast as possible, so get ready to shout!

Letter Tycoon: From Squirmy Beast Games, designer Brad Brooks. Look for the League of Gamemakers in the dealer room - demos all Sat and Sun!

Palaces: clever deckbuilder/3D palace building game by local designer legend Jeff Siadek. He's also hosting Battlestations, World Conquerers, Life Boat, and his other games. (note: his name is incorrectly spelled Jeff Saidek in their database if you have trouble finding him). Sign up in advance!

Parking isn't terribly expensive in the adjacent garages (but try to carpool anyway). There is even some free parking around the block, but it is mostly two hour parking, and no one wants that hanging over your head while making complicated dwarf-farming decisions in Caverna.

P.S. I am trying to decide whether to keep this meetup running or whether to merge it with one of the many facebook groups that occupies so much of our time. I'll probably make a decision on this by this weekend.  -joey

    Assuming we can just show up and buy day passes for this, if we haven't preregistered?

      yes, although you might save 5 bucks if you register online and list a group like BGG. some events are free, for example the auction etc.

      The demo table I had at Orccon was great. Ran a tourney for WTF and had a lot of fun. I couldn't sell games, but I worked that out with Blue Panther. This time, the demo tables were all gone by the time I jumped in, but the dealer tables had open slots, so we'll see how it goes. On the plus side, I have for sale The Amberden Affair, What the Food?!, Ars Victor, Dragon's Hoard, Wiz-War and several others.

    Running tests of Letter Tycoon (a new game by Brad Brooks) all Sat and Sunday in the dealer room AND selling League of Gamemakers games, like Tom Jolly's Wiz-War! Come by and say hi!

    I'll be there Saturday and Sunday. I get to play Battlestations Saturday and run it Sunday. I'm also running my indie storytelling card game "99 chances".
