I am new to Rochester and to gaming. My partner Tom has been teaching me a few games like .
ROCCON and ASTRONOMICON are two local conventions coming soon (former later this month, the latter in November) for fans of Science Fiction and Fantasy.
I will admit the big problems I have experienced has been trying to get a sufficient number of people able to come to events -- usually it's scheduling and/or money issues. Another in my opinion is the limited number of games (especially role-playing) people are willing to play. On the flip side, there are other social events on occasion.
Sorry about your experience this past Monday night. I do find it unusual regarding the lack of a welcoming atmosphere from the people I see who were present, and the lack of any welcoming message on your page here from the group leadership. Welcome to the group though and hope things improve.
I do see you are a boardgamer -- the Rochester Game Nights group seems a bit more suited for that as this group is more role-playing oriented. As for events, look for ROCCON and ASTRONOMICON
