Booth 1240 at GenCon 2019 | Map+Events Link

July 30th, 2019
Conventions, GameWick News, Gen Con

Finding us at GenCon 2019 should be pretty easy this year! We’re practically in the middle of the hall, with a direct line to a main entrance. Head right on down Aisle 1200 until you see the Dice Hog. Ok… he’s pretty small… nowhere near as big as he is in the pic below. Just look for our big Shuffling Horror banner, a wall of Roswell 51 and Pittsburgh 68 games, and the smiling faces of the GameWick Gang.

Looking for what game events we’re running?  Here’s the full list. Most are SOLD OUT, but we do accept generics if players don’t show up. All games are on the Lucas Oil Stadium field (a short walk from the exhibit hall). We are the first tables you will find when entering the field! Don’t miss your chance to play in a stadium event!!!

Shuffling to WittCon 2019

February 13th, 2019
Conventions, GameWick News

PIC-SQR-WOSF-BOSSIt’s been a few years since I last visited Wittenberg University RPG Guild for their annual WITTCON gaming convention, but, when I got the call to attend as this year’s panel guest, I did not hesitate to commit! Now in its sixteenth year, this one-day con starts in the early morning and dice don’t stop rolling until midnite. In addition to the panel, I’m sneaking in a few playtests on Innsmouth 32 and topping it all off with an epic WEGS Old Skool RPG session.

Lots of great board, card, and rpg games are on the schedule, check it out: the full WittCon XVI info page. Below are the events I’m hosting.

Larry “El Willy” Wickman
========================

12 PM & 2 PM : INNSMOUTH 32 – SNEAK PEEK!
May’s Eve, 1932. On-the-lam bootleggers hijack a tour bus with Miskatonic Univ students and scholars on board. A fateful wrong turn brings them all to the shunned seaside village of Innsmouth… A night of mind-bending horror awaits!

4:30 PM : THE MARRIAGE OF THEME & MECHANICS (PANEL DISCUSSION)
Why do some games capture our attention, while others fall flat? How do some games manage to get a task like rolling dice or moving a pawn feel like so much more? Game designer and publisher Larry Wickman (WEGS Old Skool, Shuffling Horror) takes on just those questions in our panel, discussing how he manages to turn the roll of a die into an experience no player will ever forget.

8 PM – Midnite: THE CAVES OF UTTER CHAOS (WEGS BOSS)
You’ve heard of the Caves of Chaos, perhaps? Well, these are the caves below those caves that nobody dares enter. We start by rolling up characters and then enter a dungeon brimming with terrible foes, nasty traps, and treasure galore. Full-throttle dungeon fun awaits with the BOSS (Basic Old Skool System). Rules taught. No XP required. Don’t forget those iron spikes and stirge repellant!
