The schedule is here:

The first game starts at 9:00 am! 

We are still looking for registrants!  We're hoping for about 30 people total- so it's small and intimate.  A good time is assured!

Is anyone coming from New York City?  I don't drive and I'd be very happy to split gas.

There is still time to come!  We have some awesome games happening and a decent crowd so it 'll be a ton of fun.  I can even offer up floor space to crash on if needed, dinner on Friday, and pick up from the Lowell train station for anyone coming from Boston or further.

I'd love to meet more boards folk!

This is a post that I made over on the Western Massive board when asked how JiffyCon went.

It went quite well. I ran Misspent Youth and confirmed that a rules tweak that Evan, Joshua, Kat, and I sussed out is a keeper. Also, they enjoyed the game. The Mormontologists were trying to stop the kids from importing coffee into Los Angeles.

I also ran Primetime Adventures and renewed my love for that system. We played a surprisingly serious game about a fight for captainship on a garbage scow completing a run between Mars and the asteroid belt. Everyone who left that table left it squidging with enthusiasm over PTA. I was overcome with evangelical joy. Games will be bought from that session.

There were marvelous meatballs with huge chunks of garlic floating in the sauce, wonderful food for breakfast (Brazilian egg sandwich) and dinner (tapas for 12) to be had in the area; a kid for Liam to play games, run around outside, and watch Avatar with; and a comfortable couch to sleep on. The night before I played this wonderful miniature combat game called D&D.

All around, great stuff.

 Even Though I am a nervous nelly who is never satidfied with anything I plan, I was happy with the result. I hope to bring in even more people next time, and to run a couple of games. I was very pleased to play robert's game and would have liked to have played PTA, but it was more important that the unitiated experience RPGS. No complaints from the college and actually some compliments on what good guests we were.
