Battle In the Bosque

An annual gaming convention held every year in Albuquerque. It had a little sputtering since last year, maybe we can help make it better! It goes from Friday, October 25th from 4pm to Sunday October 27th. The price is $15/day or $25 for the whole weekend. DM's and people hosting events there get in for $5. If you are interested in running something then email them at [masked], the fellow is Matthew Banning.

    It was a good time but, coming from a very RPG slanted view, I wish there had been more RPGs there! All the game stores were there but mostly with their board games. I got to meet a few people (I was trying to hand out cards for our site to those who were walking around. I felt a little weird interrupting games in play!) and it's good to see a group of gamers of any stripe coming together to make something like this possible. Met the Level 99 folks who are local and into publishing. They have assorted board games but I will have to check out one of their narrative RPG games, Mystic Empyrean. Thanks for all the Santa Fe folks who made the trip down!

    Hello LARPers! Excuse my interruption on your forum. I am a UNM Anthropology student in need of help for a project. My assignment is to interview a subculture that I am not apart of, and learn their lingo and communication. Because of the complexity of the LARPs I've seen on campus, I thought you guys would be an excellent focus! If you are an expert LARPer please message me! I would love your help! Pizza will be provided at the interview! Thank you very much! -Ariana

    Running a Spirit of the Century game at this! Teaser follows:

    It is 1932 and you are a member of the Century Club, a group of highly trained and gifted people who travel around the world fighting evil at every turn and ensuring a safe tomorrow. Your next assignment is to travel to the dusty, mysterious streets of Cairo to retrieve an artifact long thought lost, The Alembric of Sarraf Hengazi. It is an artifact capable of amazing creation and untold destruction. Its earliest use was thought to be outside the walls of Antioch during the First Crusades where the Muslim defenders attempted to use it against the invading Christians and disappeared paving the way for a number of victories culminating in their taking of Jerusalem.

    I'll be pushing this one hard to my Santa Fe constituency. They only let me RSVP for me +2 or else it would be in the double digits for sure. Looking forward to this event with gaming fervor!

      Glad to hear it! Hope I can meet you after all this time! Be nice if we could get a bit more overlap between our two cities!

    Does anyone know if they might be interested in LARPS?

    September 19, 2013

    • Nicholas H.

      Don't know. Drop them an email. They are at the Garden center so they might have space.

    It looks like a lot of board games and miniatures stuff, but there does seem to be some Pathfinder listed also so tabletop RPG's are there too.

    I am hoping to run something, probably on Saturday.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
