The summer is nearly over and once again, the Toronto Area Boardgaming Society (TABS - http://www.tabsonline.net) is pleased to host another great day of gaming at our upcoming TABSCon XLVII event on Saturday, September 10, 2016. These events are run quarterly at the Royal Canadian Legion Hall on Dawes Road - just east of the Main St. subway station. In addition to being close to public transit, there are also plenty of free parking options. It starts at 9am and runs until 9pm for the cost of just $5 for the day. The format is mostly open gaming, but it's possible to schedule a game for sign-up on the TABS website if you're trying to confirm the numbers beforehand.

Highlight features of TABSCon include:
• Bring and Buy Auction
• On-site vendor (WoodForSheep)
• Door Prizes
• Math Trade - This is will be posted shortly in the Trades Forum on BGG
• Kitchen staffed by the Ladies’ Auxiliary to provide various beverage and lunch options
• Alcoholic beverages available in the downstairs club house

Note that due to the rapid growth of attendance since moving to the Legion Hall, we've now rented a second hall upstairs of equal size to better handle any overflow and manage other sub-events: Math Trade, tournaments, demos, etc.

Dumb newbie question...

Are there restrictions on the Bring and Buy? (i.e. can only bring 10 items, can only bring items if you purchase some other membership type, etc.)

You can read the B&B rules here http://tabsonline.net/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic...
You're restricted to selling 20 games/lots and must hand in your registration by a certain time (best to print and fill it out ahead of time), but other than that as long as you've paid admission to enter TABSCon you're good to go

I've set up a GeekList for anyone who wants to schedule games.

I've also contacted the last math trade organizer to see if he's doing it again or we need someone else.

I'm going to be away leading up to TABSCon, so you starting this instead of me was good timing

I'll be running the math trade back end, and am just waiting for the approval to come through from the OLWLG so I can open it up for submissions.

Anyone who wants to help at the desk on the day, let me know.

If you haven't already seen it, you have until today (Sun Sep 4th) 10pm to submit games to the no-ship math trade happening at TABS next Saturday.

Want lists are due by Wed Sep 7th 10pm, and results posted as soon thereafter as I can get them up.

Full details here:

I'd like to try that sometime. I made my own board & cards for Interstellar Pig when I read the book as a kid.
