      Awesome job with the bake sale, guys. I didn't get my $20 worth (too much sugar on an empty stomach makes Billy a dizzy boy), but I expect we'll have a rockin' LOSCON party. :)

  • Garrett

    I have to run over to Lomita right after 5pm, so if anyone wants to tag along and get dinner, there's a BCG right there...

    Fun learning Talisman as well as globbing paint on figurines. Thanks, Seton, for running the game and thanks, Morganna, for the painting tips. :-)

    To all my Dungeon World peeps: I will be running Dungeon World from 1-2. You can play a new character or your current one and we'll figure out a way to tie it all in.

    Comment here if you wish to sign in for this time slot. There is a hard 5 player rule. Other players can watch but only 5 can play. Note: We only have an hour to play so if you are not there at 1 I will give your spot away.

    March 26, 2014

    • Matt

      No worries Josh. We'll see ya later.

      March 29, 2014

    • Jesus

      I wanna play dungeon world!

      March 29, 2014

  • Matt

    Post any games you'd like to run/play and we'll keep this party rolling!

      I've never played it, but its an rpg according to the internet

      March 27, 2014

    On top of all of the gaming a couple of us will be selling baked goods/food to raise some funds for future LBG activities. Because awwww yeah bake sales.

      Totally going low-carb after the bake sale. Been sampling a lot of chocolate lately and it shows! :-/ AFTER the bakesale. Oh, I'll see about bringing some chocolate covered bacon.

    I can't make it during the day but will try to stop by in the evening.

    March 28, 2014

  • Vicente Martinez J.

    Two more days until the Mini-Con! Still have openings for volunteers to demo either Magic: The Gathering, another board game time slot, a second usher, an afternoon WH40K, and Flames of War!

    Looking forward to seeing everyone there!

    March 27, 2014

    • Richard

      I can be an usher lol ( I'll be there around 2pm )

      March 28, 2014

    • Vicente Martinez J.

      Awesome, we have two more ushers!

      March 28, 2014

  • Seton S.

    I can demo some board games and could take an earlier slot: 1-2pm or 2-3pm. I'd prefer "Talisman" if people are interested. But I can also do any of the other games really fun board games that I've brought to the Bunker before: "Shadows Over Camelot", "Forbidden Island", "Forbidden Desert", "Pandemic". Maybe we can take a vote, so I can prep early.

    However I want to make sure I'm available for the 'Warhammer 40k' demo if we are doing that. I just got an army that I need to paint - which reminds me, I also want to be available for the 'Miniature Painting Workshop'.

    March 25, 2014

    • Vicente Martinez J.

      I'll slot you in for Talisman at 1pm. Thanks, Seton!

      March 27, 2014

    • Seton S.

      Great, I'll be there before 1pm to setup. I'd like to catch the Warhammer 40k then at 2pm.

      March 27, 2014

  • Michael J.

    Would like to try Warmachine or Hordes just to say I did and see what all the hubub is about.

    March 27, 2014

  • Vicente Martinez J.

    The schedule has been updated! We're still looking for a few more volunteers and one more usher. If you're interested and available, please contact me directly. Thanks!

    March 22, 2014

    • Vicente Martinez J.

      We'll make sure to accommodate you one way or the other!

      March 27, 2014

    • Hector A.

      Excellent. Thank you.

      March 27, 2014

  • Vicente Martinez J.

    The schedule will be updated tonight! Keep your eyes peeled if you still want to volunteer for any open slots. I have had a few more people to step up, we will definitely need a replacement for Flames of War if anyone knows the system and I will see about adding a second table for more board games if people still want to demo other sessions.

    March 26, 2014

  • David R.

    I have a friends wedding I have to go to or I would be murdered :-P sorry to miss this, if you need help Friday I am more then down to help :-)

  • Pigpen

    Hi Ganna, would it be ok if I took photos?

    3 · March 25, 2014

  • Vicente Martinez J.

    We are looking for volunteers to help run game demos as well as 2 ushers for the mini-con. Volunteers will be given a complimentary meal at 5pm, as well as other incentives to be decided by the store management. Ideally for the miniature tabletop games we would ask for a 4-hour commitment, all other tables and ushers a minimum of 1-2 hours (depending on the game and the painting sessions). We can be flexible with schedules if volunteers are also interested in learning other games. Ushers will be asked to help newcomers find something to try, as well as direct people to the next available gaming session. Please contact me directly if for details if you wish to volunteer.

    March 15, 2014

    • dave

      I volunteer to help with setup and break down.

      1 · March 24, 2014

    • Vicente Martinez J.

      Cool. We'll need help Friday night and before the event.

      March 24, 2014

  • Garrett

    If anyone here has a Reddit account it might be worthwhile to bring this up on r/Longbeach.

    March 23, 2014

  • Matt

    Surprisingly, I was able to get the day off. Are there still any open slots for running RPG's? Is there only 1 RPG table? Does every game have to be only 1 hour?

    I'd like to run Apocalypse World, Mouse Guard, and Apocalypse World: Dark Age. All are intro level RPG's.

    Let me know the deats! :)

    March 19, 2014

    • Vicente Martinez J.

      There's one for now, I'm still working logistics with Scott as he may want to add another table or re-arrange the existing tables within the store, the 1-hour slots are tentative , but are flexible.

      March 19, 2014

    • Matt

      Perfect! Consider me there!

    I'm happy to announce that the Bunker has officially given us the green light to move forward with planning this event! There will be several tables available with people running demos for tabletop games, Magic the Gathering, Board Games, and RPGs!

    Some people have already volunteered to run some games/demos (both from our group, as well as the Bunker), and I will be reaching out to them soon, others I will be putting out a call for volunteers for others, as well as ushers, before the end of the week. I will also be posting a schedule and what tables will be used for which kind of gaming.

    1 · March 10, 2014

  • Joey P.

    I am so down for this, and I'd be more than happy to donate 5 dollars to the Bunker, they are good peeps, running a nice little oasis for Geekdom kind, seems like a small price to pay.

    2 · March 1, 2014

  • Vicente Martinez J.

    Okay the date has been set, and I will be working out details with the store owner tonight on the events for the day, so stay tuned!

    February 28, 2014

  • XX

    Vincente said we have to see if we have room. In that case I would rather just come and play instead of prepping for no reason.

    February 26, 2014

  • Matt

    Wait XX, so are you running D&D or no?

    February 26, 2014

  • XX

    Ok then in that case just skip it.

    February 25, 2014

  • XX

    Matt Ill run a good old fashioned beginners 3.5 D&D game. I could run multiple 2 hour sessions or 1 4 hours. Let me know. Ill bring characters, miniatures,and dice for all who play.

    February 24, 2014

    • Vicente Martinez J.

      We'll try to round out a schedule once I get more feedback from The Bunker this weekend, but we'll keep your offer in mind!

      February 24, 2014

    • Matt

      That's awesome XX! You're welcome to play in one of my games too if you're interested.

      February 25, 2014

  • Vicente Martinez J.

    Hi Matt, this is an awesome idea, and I would like to make a suggestion: Try for a Sunday, as the game room is pretty empty from 11-6pm. Saturdays are their busiest days and can get quite crowded during peak times.

    I'll be at the Bunker on Friday, so if you want me to check with the owners, let me know.

    February 19, 2014

    • Vicente Martinez J.

      Hey Matt, I spoke to the owner and I think he may be willing to commit to the idea. He was pretty busy this weekend, so hopefully I'll have a chance to talk to him this coming week/weekend!

      February 23, 2014

    • Matt

      Perfect.

      February 23, 2014

  • Matt changed the date and time from Saturday, March 15, 2014 at 10:00 AM to Sunday, March 16, 2014 at 10:00 AM
