Portland, OR, January 30th, GeekGirlCon staff will be hosting a Munchkin Tournament to kick off a series of monthly gaming tournaments that will appear in cities leading to Seattle,WA and raise money for GeekGirlCon’s upcoming convention.
Jason Heilpern, GeekGirlCon’s Gaming Coordinator, has organized a Munchkin Tournament that will take place at noon at Guardian Games, 303 Southeast 3rd Avenue, Portland, Oregon. Complete with prizes and a Monty Python-themed flash mob to promote the tournament itself, “Rumor even has it the Men in Black from Steve Jackson Games will be on site to participate in the fun!” says Heilpern.
