Geek Week 4.0′s Game Con was fantastic. We went, we saw, we placed cubes, meeples, influence tokens and every other variety of game-playing paraphernalia on which we could lay hands.
People literally packed the Langdon Street Cafe to play board games. At one point in the afternoon, there was standing room only for new arrivals. I counted eight tables of games being played, at least one of which served double duty for Arkham Horror at one end and Endeavor — neither of which are games that take minimal space — at the other.
Thanks again to Ben Matchstick for organizing Geek Week and making a place in the schedule for a game day, as well as Langdon Street Cafe hosting it all. Opportunities like Geek Week are rare. We should take advantage of them.

March 24th to 30th, Langdon Street Cafe hosts Geek Week 4.0, a celebration of all things geeky and wonderful. Nights are scheduled with workshops on various topics — hacking, tapeloops and Dungeons & Dragons to name three — and the nerdiest musical acts they could find. Their Facebook event page has a thorough listing of what’s happening when.
The Sunday of Geek Week, the 28th, is the minicon. It’s a game-playing free-for-all that runs throughout the afternoon. There will be a plethora of games on hand to try, or you can bring your own favorite to show off.
Green Mountain Gamers will be there, so if you see one of us, say hello!

This afternoon we had an interesting meeting at Langdon Street Cafe in Montpelier. Six people from different corners of the northern half of Vermont convened to discuss the possibilities in encouraging more frequent and active gaming in and between the disparate hobby communities.
The Green Mountain Gamers website is just one of the things that came from that meeting. Keep an eye out for more news as it develops.
