MONSTERS Ravage America is the default game but MONSTERS Menace America has been played by 60% of the players and was played in semi-finals and the 2007 final game. You don't have to be an expert to play or even know how to play it. The coached game will be taught on the spot at the 4 heats or you can attend 1 of 2 demos. Bring your copy of the game!

Lodgings: The Lancaster Host 717-299-5500 is full, but you could be put on a waiting list. See if the Continental Inn, 717-299-0421 across the street, still has. Red Roof Inn: across the street and a short walk from the Host. Call (866) 225-2066 toll free to make your reservation.
If you cannot make the whole convention, maybe you can come for the weekend.
