GCOM Winter Games Fest 2017
January 28 – 29, 2017
Rockville Senior Center
1150 Carnation Dr
Rockville, MD 20850
GCOM’s Winter Game Fest (WGF), at the Rockville Senior Center, has been carefully crafted to be a truly great open gaming experience. We don’t just put you in a large room and force you to organize games on your own. We provide optional demos, learning, and coached games when available, and plenty of open space for playing whatever you feel like at the moment, so it’s easy to play your favorites and learn new ones, without the pressure of tourney play.
There is a list of games that folks want to play and might be willing to teach, so you and other gamers can add your own games, and find and join enthusiasts in long format, new, less popular or unusual games. A wide variety of table signage simplifies inviting compatible players. The con’s open gaming library will be a combination of the extensive GCOM and Congress of Gamers Libraries, plus requested titles from the John Goon collection. The con’s vendor, Canton Games, specializes in demoing the games they sell, and will be coming to WGF to do just that.
A huge Bring & Buy auction store will provide hours of browsing for great new and used game deals, and a super easy way for you to find new homes for your dusty games.
Of course, we’ll also have a no-ship math trade, a well equipped snack bar, and lots of special events to join. Amazingly, you get all this for just $10 for the entire weekend, thanks to GCOM‘s generous subsidy.
You must pre-register by January 13th, 2017 in order to receive a pre-printed badge, otherwise you can pay at the door.
