MisCon Quarterly Game Day

MisCon holds a Game Day four times a year on the University of Montana campus in Missoula. These game days offer a variety of gaming from board games to role-playing opportunities and somtimes include console or computer gaming, depending on what games and equipment people bring. These quarterly events are free and open to the public. Come when you have time, play a few games, and socialize with your MisCon friends.

MisCon 2012 Winter Game Day

MisCon held our Winter Game Day Saturday, 21 January 2012.

We had a good turn out, 45 people, especially considering we almost canceled the Game Day when the storm hit Thursday.

Lots of old friends, and some new faces.

Games covered the gambit, RPGs, TCGs and Board Games.

Our next event will, obviously, be MisCon 26. We'll look into getting our summer game day scheduled as soon as we can.

MisCon 2011 Fall Game Day

MisCon held our Fall Game Day Saturday, 22 October 2011.

We were at a new venue, the Phyllis J. Washington Education Center at the University of Montana. We would like to thank the Education Center for the use of it's facilities. This was a great venue, allowing us to expand the activities offered. We were able to include quiet gaming and video gaming, and to show videos.

Over fifty people attended the Fall Game Day playing many games, including the following.

  • Cthulhu Gloom
  • Munchkin Quest
  • Zombie Dice
  • Twilight Struggle
  • Guards! Guards!
  • Dungeons & Dragons: Castle Ravenloft Board Game
  • Chaos Marauders
  • Robo Rally
  • Magic: The Gathering
  • Arkham Horror
  • Thunder Stone
  • The Game of Thrones Board Game
  • Mansions of Madness
  • Dungeons & Dragons: The Legend of Drizzt Board Game
  • Smallworld
  • Marvel Superheroes Adventure Game
  • Quarriors
  • The Worst Case Scenario Card Game-Work Edition
  • Betrayal at House on the Hill

Phyllis J. Washington Education Center

This facility allows us to hold games in separate areas. We have always been willing to schedule games at Game Days, and GM's who need a quiet area for their games now have more options.

Check this page for updates, including maps to, and of, the Education Center.

Speaking of maps, I had an idea for a LARP, using long-lived characters. Each player would have two character sheets. When the player is physically in the newer section of the building they would play their current character. When in the older section of the building, they would play the character from the past. Rivals in the past, lovers in the present -- best friends in the past, bitter enemies in the present.

Check out the Phyllis J. Washington Education Center, you'll see what I mean.

I lack the social skills to run a LARP, but I hope there's a Storyteller out there with the talent to turn this into a scenario.
