Bermacon 4: The Quest for (Game) Pieces
15-19 April 2015



What is it?

Laura goes away for her annual "Chick Getaway" (her words) from 15-19 April 2015. I stay home and watch the kids. Three years ago, it dawned on me that while I watch the kids during the day, I could be inviting people over to play games during the night... multiple nights, in fact. Thus, Bermacon was born.

Bermacon are four nights of fun and intense gaming from 7:00 PM until Midnight and beyond. The format is small groups of people dedicated to all things board gaming*.

Who can come?

Invite only as we play on a couple tables in the official Bermacon game room. So, if you have received an email from me then you are invited. Games are important but playing together in a social environment is far more important to me.

How does it work?

It is simple.

First, RSVP for Bermacon by responding to your "Official Bermacon invite email" (to be sent in mid-March 2015).

Second, choose the games you'd like to play by leaving a comment below on the appropriate game. You can add game interests too!

Based on interest and first come first serve comments on game interest, a schedule of games suited to that number of players will be chosen.

That's it! The schedule of games and attendees will be worked later and published on 30 March 2015.

Why Bermacon?

Why not? It is another chance to play games, it gives me something to do when Laura is away and it sounds "official" so you can get out of the house too.

Really, no fee?

Of course there isn't. You are just coming to my house to play games in the basement...

*The one catch: be willing to talk politics, religion and opinions at large. These are show stoppers for many but make the Bermacon events unique and more entertaining.

Are you interested but don't have an invite? Email Justin Berman at just.berman AT gmail.com today.

The Schedule

The schedule is getting filled. Make your game recommendations and commitment above! I'm using the current date and beyond in comment responses as I recognize old comments may be OBE.

I'd be just as happy playing the regular edition, but would enjoy trying the expansion too.

I don't like most of Vlaada's games (more puzzles, less games). I enjoyed this one though.
