March 15-17, 2024
All reports were that the first Nerdi Gras was fun. But I missed it due to COVID. If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!
June 21-23, 2024
And it's back to Chattanooga! Warning: Attendance at LC is limited to a thousand and they typically sell out within the first hour. If you think you might like to come, watch the site for information on when sales open, and when that moment comes, don't delay.
October 20-22, 2023
Gamehole is probably the best-run small con that I have attended. It just ticks like a clock, if clocks were full of fun and games, games, games. (BONG!) I'm happy to be going back. They have a stellar lineup of gaming guests, and among their features are the True Dungeon and the Kovalic-centered Dorkstock. So you should definitely come. I am just saying!
August 31-September 4, 2023
You KNOW about DragonCon, right? Right. So I don't have to tell you. I did a lot of game-related programming this year, as well as running and playing games. And I had a great time, and I totally overdid it. Too much walking, not enough sleep. This is nobody's fault but my own . . . next year I shall be more judicious about my schedule! – SJ
August 3-6, 2023
Yay! I get to go to Gen Con this year! I expect I will run a game or two . . .
July 28-31, 2023
This big expo-style event is held in conjunction with AnimeFest, and I got a quick immersion course (whoops, at first I typed "immersion curse," which is different) in modern anime culture. Things have changed. It's neat, and possibly beyond my understanding at this point.
The game area was huge and the game library was VERY well stocked. If you came here for a weekend of gaming, you were absolutely not disappointed. I ran several games – Wiz-War went especially well. I autographed at the Geek Out retail table and really enjoyed meeting all their people (and we played games at the table, too, and I learned a new one).
I had a great time. The con staff was all very helpful and supportive, and when it was over they fed me sushi and I taught them a dice game. Thus is balance maintained in the universe! –SJ

My first visit to this big multimedia show! And I don't get to this part of the country too often, so it was great.
I got to run/play in a big Melee game, among other things. And I actually got to watch some of the programming! Especially fun were the Film Re-roll n and Michael OJ's magic show. Mike is a powerful wizard for reals, I think . . . at any rate, he totally baffled me a couple of times. Follow those URLs! And check them out if they come to a con near you. –SJ
