ANOMALYCON 2016 – THANK YOU AND GOODNIGHT!

AnomalyCon 2016 wrapped beautifully, and we love everyone who came out to spend the weekend with us!

A few announcements:

– ANOMALYCON 2017 Will be March 17-19, 2017. Given the weekend we’ll have some surprises in mind. We will be at the same hotel.
– We’re working on a new website! It should be up shortly, and until it is we’re holding pre-reg (so we don’t have to convert systems)
– Feel free to email us with suggestions, but remember that we will be a little slower to answer emails during the month of April as we recover from the big event.

Meanwhile, please enjoy a few writeups on the convention this year:

AnomalyCon 2016 Gaming Room

The AnomalyCon Gaming Room will be open Friday from 2pm-11pm, Saturday from 10am-6pm, and Sunday from 10am-4pm!

This year, we have a great collection of board and card games available for you to check out and play with your friends. Whether you want to play an old favorite or something you’ve never tried before, we’ll have volunteers there to help you get started!

And we’ve got our best role-playing schedule ever! There will be at least two RPGs going on at a time, so whether you’ve never played before or you just want to try something new, we’ve got your game! Beginners are welcome at all of our games.

We’ll be featuring several Steampunk and Victoriana-style games, as well as classic D&D adventures and alt-history too! Join noted game designers Sean Patrick Fannon and Ross Watson as they demonstrate the feverishly-anticipated Savage Rifts!
