I just wanted to send a message about TotalCon 32 which is being held February 22 - 25, 2018 in Marlborough, MA.
TotalCon is a great convention that has a lot of open gaming and scheduled events; if you check out the TotalCon website you will find a link to the scheduled events. This is also a great con if you have kids, folks are friendly and more than happy to play with anyone. I've been taking my kids for the last three or four years and they look forward to it every year. Although I've mostly lost my son to role playing during the con, last year he got 24 hours of D&D in.
There are also both a no ship math trade and no ship auction taking place during the convention (please note that you must be a registered attendee of the convention in order to participate). The auctions ends after the math trade so you can take part in both events.
The math trade has about a week left to add games, if you haven't participated in a math trade before this is a great opportunity to join one, especially since you don't have to deal with shipping games. There are some helpful links posted in the geeklist about math trades and how they work and you can also email me with any questions you may have. The swapping of games for the math trade takes place on Saturday, so as long as your attending Saturday you can take part.
