Ask GeekGirlCon: Gaming at GeekGirlCon ’12
Wow, I’m not sure if you all realize, but GeekGirlCon ‘12 is only two days away! Are you excited? We sure are. We cannot wait for the amazing panels, special events, cosplay, and gaming. Most importantly, we can’t wait for the opportunity to meet and interact with all of you.
Over the past few days, we have been passing along tweets, emails, and Facebook posts to one another that express this excitement. And we figured we should bundle some of that into a blog post. So we asked our staff what workshops, events, or games they wanted to catch on the Gaming floor. Check out what they had to say:
L.B. Chambers, Special Events Coordinator: Magic: the Gathering – Learn or Play (I’m bringing a friend who I’ve tried to teach but am not the best teacher so can’t wait for her to learn!).
Terra Clarke, Street Team Coordinator: I am excited to participate in the Magic: The Gathering – Learn or Play! I recently taught my husband to play MTG, and now he is hooked too and I don’t have to coerce him into playing! It will be fun to show him that other ladies play MTG too.
Sophie Ngeth, Individual Sponsorship Coordinator: Magic: The Gathering – Learn or Play! free lessons sound rad. I’ve been meaning to learn how to play for a while now. It’s also helpful that after GeekGirlCon ’12, I can ‘borrow’ some of the gazillion Magic cards my younger brother owns to help facilitate practice.
Jessica (Jex) Ballard, Volunteer Director: I’m super excited to see Break from Reality’s Disaster Looms! because a friend of mine created it and I’ve yet to see the finished product. If I had the time, I would play in the Steve Jackson Games: Munchkin High Noon Tournament as I looooove Munchkin! Not to mention, I can’t wait to see some of the creations at the Superhero/Villain Mask Making Workshop.
Amanda Powter, Copywriter: I am really interested in the LARPing workshops. I’m reading a book called Leaving Mundania, which is about the world of live-action role playing. I’m intrigued to see what it is like. I’m so glad there’s an intro session for those new to it & then a chance to participate in two different sessions after that.
Adrienne Fox, Copywriter: I can’t wait to get in the gaming area for GeekGirlCon ’12. I haven’t played Magic:The Gathering for years and I would love to sit in on the tutorials by the Lady Planeswalker Society.
Alyssa Jones, Gameroom Coordinator: I am most looking forward to painting me some miniatures! Miniature painting has been a hobby I’ve always been curious about but never gotten around to buying the supplies.
Tammy Vince Cruz, Vice President and Design Manager: Holy biscuits, I’m super excited to try out Mangaka: The Game. It’s two of my favorite past times rolled into one; doodling AND tabletop gaming. YES!
Kristine Hassell, Twitter Administrator: I wish I could participate in the Buffy RPG that will happen after the “Once More, with Feeling” Sing-Along!
Shiboo Blalack, PR Content Producer: I’m stoked to make a mask at the Superhero/Villain Mask Making Workshop. I did it last year and it was a lot of fun! I’m hoping I can wear my creation the next time I’m performing!
So many great games and workshops, so little time!
