WGGCon 2012 Aug 31 – Sep 2 (Details)

Alec Usticke WGGCon
2

The fourth annual WGGCon starts Friday, August 31! We’re expecting a fantastic turnout all weekend long, so please RSVP on Facebook or Meetup (or both).

Croton Point ParkLocation

We’re once again at Croton Point Park, 1A Croton Point Ave., Croton-on-Hudson, New York.

We’re in cabin #1 again, which is the first cabin on the right as you enter the cabin area. CPP typically charges for parking, but please tell the front gate you’re with cabin #1, so they (hopefully) won’t charge you.

Time

GamesWe start at Friday 1:00pm and run around the clock until Monday morning. We have to cleanup and be out of the cabin by 11:00am on Monday, so there probably won’t be much activity on Monday, but we can game as late as we want on Sunday.

Contact

Elliot and Alec will be at the cabin the entire time (minus a couple trips home for showers), so please keep our cell phone numbers in case you need to reach us:
Elliot: 914-525-6375
Alec: 914-382-7464

Texting and email work as well of course.

Schedule

BBQOur main focus is on board and card games, but you’re welcome to play any game that other players are interested in joining. Please share which games you’re bringing on this Meetup topic.

We will have a BBQ on Saturday evening. We will also be providing soda/water and snacks during the entire con but feel free to bring anything you don’t mind sharing. For other meals, we can always order pizza or send someone to a sandwich shop nearby.

We’ll be projecting movies on a big screen after dark each evening again this year. Popcorn and other snacks will be provided.

MoviesYou’re also welcome to bring your families even if they’re not gamers. Both Elliot’s & Alec’s kids will be there all weekend to enjoy the park.

Dealer Hall

Z-Man Games (Zev) will be onsite on Saturday. If you pre-ordered a game and can’t attend on Saturday, please let us know, and we’ll hold your order for you.

For those who pre-ordered WGGCon t-shirts, Elliot and Tanya will have those all weekend. (All sizes are $20 except for 2XL $23.)

Cost

MarshmallowsWGGCon is paid for with donations. The cabin costs $270 and food, snacks & drinks are a few hundred more. Our suggested donation is $5-10 per person per day plus $5-10 for those who join the Saturday BBQ. We don’t have a firm amount, because we’d like people to base their donation on how long they spend with us and how much food/snacks/drinks they consume. If you’re only stopping in one day for a couple hours, feel free to pay $5. If you’re with us around the clock and eat voraciously, then please adjust your donation accordingly. We’re just a bunch of friends getting together for gaming, so we don’t want to worry about money. Hopefully we break even again like we did last year. (Thanks to all those who contributed!)

Besides any snacks or food items you wish to bring, the other way you can help out is by bringing folding chairs or tables. There’s plenty of picnic tables outside, but we need to augment the furniture in the cabin.

Raffle

GamesAs a thank you for those who donate, Elliot, Alec & John Velonis have contributed some great games for a raffle. We’re not selling tickets, but you get a free ticket for every $5 you donate for food and the venue as per above. The games are brand new and in shrink wrap. We’ll draw names Sunday night; you don’t have to be present to win.

Thanks and see you at WGGCon soon!

  • I’m emailing Zev with the following requests for games that I received:

    Elliot: Dungeon Twister 2: Prison, Neuroshima Hex: DuelRobin: Goa (and Fairy Tale if available)Brad: JuntaMike: Troyes, Traders of CarthageIlan: Troyes

    Not a lot of requests this year compared to last. If I missed anyone or you want to add to the list, let me know asap. Zev will be joining us on Saturday and will be making the exchanges then.
    Cheers,Elliot
