On what should be the hottest day of the year, snow blankets the tiny village of Torlynn. The winter weather wreaks its havoc week after week, and the people of Torlynn are forced to abandon their homes. Only a few hardy souls remain in the village, one being Burgomaster Gustovan.
10:30am - 1:30pm Waiting List Extra Hall, RPG Table Z
Each year, the town calls on their allies, a peaceful goblin tribe from the western wood, to construct a trial dungeon, filled with puzzles, traps and monsters, so six youngsters can use their training to prove themselves. This is an ideal session for parent-and-child duos or trios, and a great opportunity for new players.
2:00pm - 5:00pm Waiting List Main Hall, Special Table
One of the most hyped games of all time, for a reason. Scythe is a brilliant engine-building game set in an alternate-history 1920s period. It is a time of farming and war wached with mecha, broken hearts and rusted gears, innovation and valor.
Scum & Villainy

Vigilante Justice
3:00pm - 6:00pm Register for Free! Extra Hall, RPG Table Z
Between the towering metal skyscrapers and hidden in darkness, crime riddles the streets. The Agents of the Law are few, and crime is plenty. For that reason there are those who take the law into their own hands. Yes, it's technically illegal, but if a few minor crimes can keep the streets from getting out of control, it's worth it... isn't it?

Rebellion! On Weyland-Yutani Outer Penal Colony 724
7:00pm - 10:00pm Waiting List Extra Hall, RPG Table X
Flash directive from HQ said: “Weyland-Yutani Outer Penal Colony 724 has rebelled against the Core Systems.” Ha. In other words, they’ve decided they don’t want to work for scrip anymore. All we know is that there's still no contact with the colony and that a xenomorph may be involved. W-Y signs our paychecks so it’s all the same to us, am I right, Marines?!
A Total Fiasco!
7:00pm - 10:00pm Waiting List Extra Hall, RPG Table Y
Fiasco: noun. A complete failure, especially a ludicrous or humiliating one. That's what this game is about. Fiasco isn't a game about winning, it's about creating an amazing story.
Bring Your Own Miniatures

When the great rituals of the guilds called for heroes to restore the empire, those rituals reached further afield than anyone expected. Heroes were ripped from across all time and space, and from numerous realities across the multiverse, now to explore ruins, engage conflicts, and forge destinies in a place stranger than they could imagine.
