Game'pril Fools 2020 Solo QuarantineCon
Welcome, one and all to my celebration of Game'pril Fools Month of Gaming!
Last year, during the month of April I had some local friends over several nights throughout each week for pre-planned gaming sessions. I called this "Game'pril Fools Month of Gaming". This year, in the spirit of 'social distancing', I've elected to continue this tradition by inviting all of YOU to join me each day by playing the same game as me and other attendees to the Con, wherever you are! Amidst this ongoing COVID-19-driven quarantine, most of us are either at home by ourselves, with a select couple roommates, or with our small nuclear family units - such as it will be for the indefinite future. By joining me for Game'pril Fools Month of Gaming, we can share gaming alone, together!
This, for all intents and purposes, will be a month-long Solo(able)Con. Each day during the month of April 2020, a suggested solo(able) game will be listed as the game to play that day; in some instances, a two-player game might preferentially be highlighted for a given day for one reason or another. For the most part, the chronology will follow a day-wise alphanumeric selection from #'s through A-Z. Thus providing 27 days-worth of selected games. Each of the remaining unaccounted-for 3 days will interrupt the alphanumeric progression at predetermined dates - namely, April 12th, 13th, and 20th. Suggested games will be highlighted in each of the below Geeklist items, with preferred backup options, and additional backup options to account for variance in attendees' game collections.
[Edit: By request, I will be adding select Print & Play alternative options in the coming days.]
Feel free to SHARE this Convention with your friends and family to have them participate with us!
To participate, simply play one of the listed games on its specified date, and Comment/Reply to that day's Geeklist item, to start a discussion based on your play of the game(s). Feel free to include scores, digital photographs, thoughts, comments, &cetera!
If you have any suggestions on how to improve this Convention, feel free to Comment at the bottom of this Geeklist in the general comments section or send me a direct GeekMail with your thoughts.
*If you are a publisher and would like to offer prizes/giveaways/promotion codes/discounts/etc. to Con attendees for playing your game or otherwise, please send me a GeekMail directly, and I will disseminate the information or add the information to this header. Thanks!
