Gamehole Con

Post by finarvyn »

I guess there is a game convention in Madison, WI, in early November. I haven't been to this one but I see that Castles & Crusades has some games in the schedule.

Anyone going? Anyone been there in previous years? Is it worth my time?

I haven't been, but it's got a great reputation as an OSR-friendly con. There is a lot of cross-over of attendees and events between Gamehole Con and Gary Con. I would love to go if I could do 2 out of town cons per year. North Texas RPG Con is the third player in the OSR con constellation.

Though to be clear, both NTXRPGC and GaryCon are Old School cons that do some new games. Game Hole Con is (so I've been informed) is a 'modern' con that is OS friendly.

That distinction means more to some than others, but I wanted to make sure its out there. ;)

I get what you are saying. Gamehole Con appears to have a huge list of 5E games, but only a few old-school games like OD&D / C&C / S&W:WB. And a bunch of board games.

However, I see a few cool names like Frank Mentzer and Jim Ward listed among the DM's. :D

I love Gamehole, GaryCon, and NTRPG. All are sort of the same, yet different in their own way. I know I should have two C&C games on the GH schedule.
