Well, there?s a new game convention coming to Denver called MagnaCon. It?s a game convention from which 100% of all proceeds (100% of pass sales and 100% of auction/raffle income, since they run with such little overhead) will go to local charities.

More info can be found at

Dates in 2010 are the weekend of January 15th - 17th, and the convention is only $15 for the full weekend with no additional fees if you buy your pass online. (Otherwise passes are $20 for the weekend or $10 a single day at the door.)

They will have scheduled board games, as well as an open gaming area with a large board game library. The event takes place at the Whittier Community Center at 2900 Downing Street in Denver.

I?ve wanted to get involved in a local game convention for some time but have had very little luck, poor response and a lack of enthusiasm from the organizers of TactiCon and GenCon for an Axis & Allies table.

This MagnaCon contacted me about getting an A&A table set up and is even offering a free weekend pass to anyone that would be willing to run an A&A table.

What I would like to see us do is get 5 separate people to commit to running one game each (one Friday night, one Saturday morning, one Saturday afternoon, one Sunday morning and one Sunday afternoon).

All other persons interested in going to the con and gaming A&A with ?our group? or gaming any of the other games would need to buy a pass for a single day or the entire weekend.

Let me know if this is something anyone is interested in and if you are able to ?host a game? or not and what day or night shift you would be willing to manage for us.

I would do all 5 sifts my self but there is a good chance I might be out of town for work that weekend?BUMMER!!!!

I need to know ASAP if you can COMMIT to doing this since I need to get back with the organizers by Monday December 28th with an answer.
