Crazy Squirrel Minicon: June 20, 2015

It’s time to get pumped for this year’s roleplaying minicon! Coinciding with Free RPG Day as normal, we’re excited to see what games you want to run.

This year we’re going for a more relaxed schedule, including 5 hour slots. On Saturday, games run from 10 am to 3 pm, with a second slot running from 4 pm to 9 pm. Sunday’s roleplaying is a single slot from 1 pm to 6 pm. Admission is free as always, and everyone gets a pick of the Free RPG day loot.

We’re running game signups from now through May 28th. To run a game, just fill out this simple, familiar form. Without you, GMs, we don’t have a con. Thanks!

Roleplaying Mini-Con is this month!

The Roleplaying Mini-Con nears! GMs, keep an eye on your inboxes. Game registration for everyone begins Wednesday, June 4th. You can register at the Warhorn site early, so you’ll be ready to sign up as soon as the site goes live. To do so, visit warhorn.net/events/crazy-squirrel-games.

If you’re thinking about running a session but haven’t sent us your game, you can still get listed. Just fill out our game form here: 2014 RPG MiniCon: GMs, List your games! We’re actually doing well on the number of offered games, so GM only if you’re inspired… otherwise, sign up and enjoy a weekend of great play!

2014 Minicon games are rolling in!

Several GMs have submitted games, but we have space for many more!

If you’d like to see the games already on offer, visit our Warhorn site; signups will open in June!

The Warhorn site is up to date for games submitted prior to May 28th. If you submitted before then and don’t see it on your list, please submit again! You can submit games via our form.

Thanks for running games–and look at the cool games rolling in on the Warhorn site.

2014 RPG MiniCon: GMs, List your games!

The 2014 Roleplaying Games Minicon is Saturday, June 21st and 22nd, 2014. We’ve had great events the last two years, and we’re looking forward to even more fun this year. We’ve got more space for game tables and sound walls–let GMs be heard across their table, not across the room!

This month we need GMs to step up and tell us what games they’d like to run. Fill out the form below and we’ll put your game on the signup site. Come June, we’ll let the hordes of players loose to sign up for your games–and let you sign up for some fun play too.

We’re spring boarding off of Free RPG Day; GMs will get first pick of the freebies on Saturday, but everyone will get cool stuff to take home.

(If your game runs particularly long, go ahead and submit for two consecutive slots as [Game] Part 1 and [Game] Part 2. Be sure to list whether players must participate in both slots in the adventure description, or if you’ll work fresh players in at the beginning of Part 2.)

We’ve had a great number of GMs step up– Thanks! For now, we encourage everyone to sign up for games they’d love to play at the minicon. If you’re eager to run, please consider prepping your game idea for the next Roleplaying Meetup on July 12th.

Rules

League fee is $15. For the duration of the league, members gain access to the game room for no additional cost for league games.

Players will be required to play two games a month, “Challenge” and a “Check Mark” Game. Players will use the Google Doc. CSGS League Score form to submit their scores.

“Challenge” matches shall be declared against another participating (paid) member and shall only be declared only when all who are ranked lower have declared their “Challenges first.A “Challenge” is scored as 3 point for win, 2 for Draw and 1 for loss.

“Check Mark” games (2 points per player) may be played against anyone outside of league and including participating league player. Furthermore anyone who has played their “Check Mark” game against another who is not participating needs to provide a battle report with pictures. “Check mark” games may be played at any time before or after your “Challenge” match. “Check Mark” will award 2 points for each player.

Each month shall have a minimum of points to be played and that is what is expected when “Challenging” an opponent. Your first league game will consist of 500 points and each month increases its minimum* points to be played by 250 respectably. Games with point values exceeding the minimum* point requirement may be played. However, In a Challenge, if any opponent is not able to or does not want to field more than the minimum* then the minimum* MUST be played. 2000 points is the goal and will finish in April 2014.

Each month there will be 3 points awarded to those who paint at least 250 points

As a Token of gratitude to our hard working league players there will be a ONE TIME 10 point bonus to your overall score for recruiting a new** player to the CSGS League play

*The Minimum is the Maximum allowed to build a list from and it may be common for lists to be a few points short.

**a new player is defined as anyone who is not already entered as a league member as of March 1st and who will provide written confirmation indicating who referred them. The referral must be made by a League member.
