We'll be in Rome for a few days the week before Essen, and wanted to know if there's a good opportunity for both gaming as well as checking out some game stores!

I'll have all the Bezier Games Essen releases with me if anyone is interested in trying them out before Essen:

Suburbia Inc
Ultimate Werewolf: Inquisition
You Suck

And I'll also have the super secret game we'll be announcing at Essen. Shhhh.

If there's a gaming thing over those days, let me know and I'll try to squeeze it into our schedule.

This will be my first time to Rome, but I'm always interested in hearing what the locals say I should go do besides the normal traditional things...

In Rome are present these shops
Strategia e Tattica 2 in Via Massaciuccoli 78, nearest underground station Sant'Agnese/Annibaliano (blue Line). They have the space and organize gaming sessions sometimes even at evening.
Strategia Nova, the former Strategia & Tattica, in Via Niso 54, nearest underground station Furio Camillo (orange line).
SoloGiochi in Via Catania 83, nearest underground station Piazza Bologna (blue Line).
Avalon Roma in Viale delle Milizie 86, nearest underground station Ottaviano (orange line).
Then, that you can easeily reach even at evening, there is the gaming pub
La Civetta sul Comò in Via Cereate 8, nearest underground station is San Giovanni area (orange line).
For other things at your request.

hello there =)
i heard that there will be a small con the 12 and 13 of october. It's called "Roma Est in Gioco", but it could be hard to reach for it's held not in the city center. It's just outside the Grande Raccordo Anulare, on Casilina steet.
here's the link to the event, unfortunately the site in italian only, but if you're interestd and need some other advice, feel free to ask ^_^

The thread talking of the small con is Roma Est in Gioco: 2° edizione (12-13 Ottobre). I think I will go there and in case we can organize a pick up/drop down at an underground station, but it would take you really far away from downtown Rome. If you decide to go, my advice is to be to be there for the Saturday evening. It would be easy to organize a pick up at the underground and then someone that takes you back downtown with a car.

Think it over.

Hi Ted, I sent you a geekmail... Let me know what you think.

Cheers.

Thanks to everyone for your responses!

I'm very tempted by the offer to head out for a full day of gaming on the 13th, but I don't think my family (even though they're all gamers) would find it as compelling on their first day in Rome.

Davide did send me a geek mail about possibly meeting at La Civettà sul comò and that sounds like it would be great. Maybe on Monday or Tuesday evening...we would bring the new Essen releases (including one that we'll be announcing at Essen that's particularly good).

Thanks again for all the great advice...i will try to check out some of the other game shops as well if we can squeeze them in!

A full gaming day is too much, my advice would take an agreement to show at the con in the evening of saturday. Someone picks you, and your family, up at an underground station and someone takes you back downtown later. You have dinner in an uncommon place for a tourist, you chat with some players and then you go back to sleep.
This would leave you the day for seeing the city.
