The following are the events currently scheduled for the 2013 Fall Gaming Hoopla.

The next Gaming Hoopla is September 27th to September 29th, and will be held at The Johnstown Community Center, 9937 East County Road A, Janesville, WI 53546. You can find a map and directions from Chicago, Milwaukee, Madison, and Rockford on our web site: www.gaminghoopla.com.

As always, all proceeds from the Gaming Hoopla are donated to the American Cancer Society through the Knutson Family and Tastefully Simpletuns Relay for Life Teams.

Except for the Special Events which are listed first, all events are listed in chronological order by day and event start time. Please be sure to check out all pages if you are using this as a reference to plan your Hoopla schedule.

Each entry has a description, day, time, number of players, experience level desired, and name of the event judge. The experience levels are set by the judges and will be one of three choices:

Will Teach - This is a "learn to play" session...the game will be taught.

Some Experience - Some experience with that game or genre of game is helpful. Judges will still teach, but reading rules prior to the event is encouraged.

Experience Necessary - Player should be familiar with the game and know most if not all of the rules.

If you see an event you just have to have a seat at, we highly recommend visiting our website and preregistering between now and September 20th to guarantee your name is one of the first on the list.

With over 120 scheduled events, it would be difficult to find something you're not interested in. However, if you don't see anything you like, then come and run your own games using one of the over 1000 games in the GenCon Games Library and our open gaming tables!

For more information and periodic updates about the Hoopla, check out www.gaminghoopla.com. You can also join our BGG conversation in the Conventions forum here: 2013 Fall Gaming Hoopla Announcement!

If you have any questions, please comment here, or email us at gaminghoopla@gmail.com.

SPECIAL EVENT

Luminaria Ceremony!

The Luminaria Ceremony is a tribute to those who had or have cancer, those who lost their lives, and those fighting the disease. The ceremony will take place at 8:00 pm on Saturday night. ALL events will be stopped at this time for a short break, and we will take some time to remember that ultimately the Gaming Hoopla is a fund-raiser to raise money to fight this disease.

Join us in celebrating the lives of those who have lost their battles with cancer, and in supporting those who are currently fighting it. Your generosity can make a difference!

Each welcome packet will include a luminary bag with instructions, and others will be available for attendees to decorate in memory or support of their loved ones. Donations are accepted, but not required.

Description: In King of Tokyo, you play mutant monsters, gigantic robots, and other aliens – all of whom are happily whacking each other in a joyous atmosphere in order to become the one and only King of Tokyo. At the start of each turn, you roll six dice. The dice show the following six symbols: 1, 2 or 3 Points of Destruction, Energy, Healing and Whack. Over three successive throws, choose whether to keep or discard each die in order to win destruction points, hoard energy, restore health, or whack other players into understanding that Tokyo is YOUR territory. The fiercest player will be crowned King of Tokyo... and will end up facing all the other monsters alone! Top this off with special cards purchased with energy that have a permanent or temporary effect, such as the growing of a second head which grants you an additional die, body armor, nova death ray, and more.... and it's one of the most explosive games of the year! In order to win the game, one must either destroy Tokyo by accumulating 20 destruction points, or be the only surviving monster once the fighting has ended.

Description: Partnership climbing card game. Object is rid yourself of your hand. The deck is a standard 52-card pack with four special cards added. When it's your turn, you may either beat the current top card combination or pass. If play passes all the way back to the player who laid the top cards, he wins the trick and can lead the next one. The card led determines the only combo of cards to be played on that trick. Fives, Tens and Kings are worth points, with each hand worth one hundred points. The first team to 1000 points wins.

Description: Troyes is a dice/worker placement game, where the dice represent people in the three main houses, City Hall, the Bishropric and the Palace. Each gives you a different color die, and each is used for different activities. By the end of round three there are nine activities up and you use your agents to activate them to accomplish your goals. Most victory points, wins! And don't forget to build the cathedral. May also incorporate Ladies of Troyes if the table is more experienced.

Pathfinder Society 4-22: Halls of Dwarven Lore

Description: A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 5–9. The dwarven sky citadel of Janderhoff in eastern Varisia is one of the least visited settlements in the land, at least by non-dwarves. Nevertheless, the Pathfinder Society has been invited to assist in the excavation of a forgotten ruin within the large underground complex. What the fearless adventurers stand to find within could be the greatest discovery of the Age of Lost Omens, something sure to immortalize all involved in the pages of the Pathfinder Chronicles for ever more. But the ruins under Janderhoff aren't the end of the Pathfinders' journey; rather they illuminate a treacherous path ahead, from the familiar land of Varisia into much more dangerous territory.

Description: Zombicide is a collaborative game in which players take the role of a survivor – each with unique abilities – and harness both their skills and the power of teamwork against the hordes of unthinking undead! Zombies are predictable, stupid but deadly, controlled by simple rules and a deck of cards. Unfortunately for you, there are a LOT more zombies than you have bullets. Find weapons, kill zombies. The more zombies you kill, the more skilled you get; the more skilled you get, the more zombies appear. The only way out is zombicide!
