Awesome Heath!

Cape Fear Games is a class act and is sure to put on a great event. This is a first time venture for CFG, so time will tell what the size of the event will be. Bottom line if you like to play board games there will be folks there who would love to accommodate your impulses. I don't know exactly what they have planned (events, tournaments, etc.), but there will be plenty of open gaming I am sure.

Anyone not familiar with historic Wilmington, NC needs to attend this event. The hotel is located near the downtown area, so it is just a short drive to experience some great restaurants, a large dose of southern hospitality and culture. As the title of the event would also indicate there are some very beautiful beaches in the area also only a short drive away.

So, come on out and play some games with us!

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...

Hi David,

Below is the newly created Board Games List. We do have lots of locals with plenty of games. If there is something in particular that you would like to play or bring, mark it on the sheet.

Thanks!

Andrew

I am one of the locals attending the event and I can attest to the fact that our group has a very large inventory of games. Over the next month I will add to the list some of the games I plan on bringing to the event.

I am pretty interested in attending. Wondering what kind of itinerary you guys have planned. Is this just a massive meetup and play or will there be different game developers/publishers showcasing games/Role Play Systems etc? I saw the game list and was curious about the exact layout of the weekend; I have some games of my own not on the list, I would love to share with people and teach them how to play.

We would love to have you. The format is similar to a game night at a friend's house, only with more people and lasting for 3 days. There isn't a whole lot of structure in terms of activities or events. There will be a play-to-win table, and possibly some attendee run tournaments. The main event is open play.
