The BixCON Series of gaming events: A combination of Great Friends, Great Games, Great Food, & Great Drink!

www.saskgames.com has been steadily growing and connecting gamers and groups in Saskatchewan. We had our humble start in 2010 and have really enjoyed the success we have had to date.

We have partnered with a local restaurant and a local boardgame store to bring a new weekly gaming event to the city and we are getting 30 people out on average for each ChewsDay Challenge game night. It is quite heartwarming to see the growth and meet new people who are enjoying the hobby.

If we can get people to set down their personal electronic devices, switch off their television, and gather around the table for an evening of engaging social interaction, we have truly achieved something magical.

We are now building on our past success with some social media tools. We would appreciate it if you could help us out.

I'm hoping in the next few months to start a similar games night in Saskatoon. Also, we have a page up on bgg for Lamp Light Games now and also one for Space Junk, our first game!

He's looking real sharp in his 1940's fedora. He's got nerves of steel, an iron will, and several other metal-themed attributes. His fur is water tight and he's always up for a fight.

He's a semi-aquatic egg-laying mammal of action. He's a furry little flat-foot who'll never flinch from a fray. He's got more than just mad skills, he's got a beaver tail and a bill.

Actually, only 10 residents play, another 8 come in by dog sled and we also count their 12 husky dogs as attendees.
