MACE is a board gaming, miniatures, RPG, and LARP convention to be held this year in High Point, NC the weekend of Nov 11th - 13th. This year marks the 15th anniversary of the convention, which is run by Justus Productions.

The organizers are very welcoming to all sorts of gamers and they put on a really good convention. The are also welcoming of budding game designers who want to "show off their wares".

So, I've begun a list of MACE 2011 games below, shamelessly adding my game as the first entry modest. However, everyone else who's attending is encouraged to add the games you'll be GM'ing, playing, demoing, or even watching. RPG's are welcome, too.

Garden Dice is a light-to-medium weight game in which two to four players roll dice to buy and place vegetable tiles on a board depicting a garden. The dice can be used in multiple ways, frequently presenting players with difficult choices. The player who makes the most efficient use of his or her dice, scoring the most points, is declared the winner. The game will feature the charming artwork of Josh Cappel and will be available Spring 2012.

I'll be demoing the game at various times over the weekend, so please come check it out. I will also be launching a Kickstarter campaign in the very near future, please keep an eye out for it. Please subscribe to the main game entry for updates.

I'm playing in a game of Arkham Horror on Friday. I love playing it at cons because it means I don't have to go to all the hassle of setting it up myself.

I'm signed up for one of the sessions of Fiasco on Saturday. I've played it at many other conventions but this will be my first time playing it with strangers. It will also be my first time attending MACE. I'm looking forward to it.

No matter how bad things can get, Maids make things better... usually right before making them worse. I'm signed up to finally play this game live and I am looking forward to meeting many of the people from here at MACE. It will also be my first time, and I am soooooo looking forward to it!

I'm also signed up for a Paranoia game on Saturday night, We Be Goblins on Friday (with Chad along side for the ride) and several other well loved RPGs. Mostly all I am playing currently are RPGs. After all, I'm a role player first and foremost. ^_^

Well, since this list is not taking off like I thought it would, I guess I'll add another game I am looking forward to.


I've not played a true game with the HERO system in several decades. I've kept up with it, and while I am not fully up on HERO 6, It's probably close enough that I can pick it up fairly easily. Of course, The last time I played it in earnest was when it came in a small book called Champions in the 80s, but hey, my RPG memory is pretty good. ^_^

This one's not on the schedule since this is my first MACE and I wasn't entirely sure I'd be able to make it.

However, I'd love to try to get a game of Hollowpoint going as a pick-up game.
