I'll probably be running 2 Rooms and a Boom on Friday night and helping run some Werewolf on Saturday night.

From the website:
The Big Frederick Gaming Convention (or BFGcon for short) is an annual geeky convention in Frederick, MD that includes Board Games, Magic the Gathering, Tabletop RPGs, Miniature War Gaming, Entertainment, Panels and much, much more.‡ This is the area’s only full-fledged con where all types of gamers are welcomed, tournaments and events take place, and where we create a full experience for the attendees instead of just an open space for gaming. In our first year, we chatted with some friends explaining what we wanted, one remarked: “Oh, you want to bring GenCon to Frederick!”. Yes, that probably sums it up fairly well.

We were amazed (and thrilled) that we got over 450 attendees at our 1st BFGcon in 2018, so we are already working hard on 2019, and have booked three times the amount of space we had last year to make it possible!
