Session Report: Feb 18th: Board Games at the Portsmouth Public Library

On February 18th we held our second community gaming event at the Portsmouth Public Library. I was happy to see that our numbers stayed strong again this time with another 30+ people of all ages joining in the gaming fun. Once again we had a great mix of all ages, and there were a good number of new faces in the crowd as well as the regular attendees of our events. The game list saw some favorites return from last time as well as some new games make it to the table. Many people requested or brought certain games to play, which was great as it made packing a little bit easier. The group got settled pretty quickly and I was able to teach 2 or 3 games right off the bat. Everyone enjoyed the games they played and I am looking forward to another meet up on March 31st. To my count (I may have missed a game or two) there were a total of 17 different titles played during this month’s session. I would like to thank the library for hosting the event, all the gamers who came out, and everyone who helped teach games to keep the day moving smoothly.       Don’t Miss an Event!

TotalCon 2012

It’s time for TotalCon 2012! I’ll be attending this awesome convention this weekend in Mansfield, MA and would love to meet up to game and chat. I’ll be arriving Thursday afternoon and staying until Sunday afternoon. I’ll make it easy for you to find me by wearing a Sages of RPG shirt each day. I’ll also take a page from Ben Gerber over at Troll in the Corner and post up a pic for you to find me. Throughout the weekend I’ll try and post some highlights. But if I don’t get to it during the con I’ll post about it shortly after. I have created a Geeklist on BoardGameGeek of the games I would like to tryout or get on the table. I’ll be bringing along some of my favorites as well as some of my prototypes or people to try. Most of the weekend is not scheduled and will be filled with Open Gaming. So if you are ever up for a game, or looking for a player send me an email or tweet @SagesOfRPG! Sages will also have a table in the main hallway right near the dealer room that I will be hanging around when not playing in a game. Please come by and say hello. For minute to minute details throughout the con, and to see when I am searching for players- Follow @SagesOfRPG ;on Twitter ! Follow @SagesofRPG Happy Gaming and hope to see you there! Share...

Session Report: Jan 28th: Board Games at the Portsmouth Public Library

Last Saturday we partnered with the Portsmouth Public Library to offer a community gaming event from 1:00pm-3:30pm (we went until 4:30 because we were having so much fun!). It was a great first event and I look forward to many more in 2012. The idea started a while ago when I started a conversation with the library about them possibly hosting a gaming event. We decided to schedule the event for one saturday a month, and booked a few to see how it goes. If our first event is any indication, we have a hit on our hands. After some good promoting by both parties, we packed the room. At one time during the day we had 35+ people playing games. The most wonderful thing about this number is that there were people of all ages and levels of gaming interest represented. It was fantastic to see so many people laughing and having a blast playing games face to face. There were many games played and they ranged from traditional favorites like cribbage and Rummikub to award-winning euro games such as 7 wonders and Alhambra and everything in-between. To my count (I may have missed a game) there were a total of 15 different titles enjoyed over the 3 1/2 hours we were there. The one thing that was apparent is the love for certain games and the need to connect players with others who enjoy these games. There were a few people who attended the event looking for a group to play their favorite game, but sadly we could not get every game on the table in one...
