Howdy! I've probably mentioned it here before, but I thought I'd mention it again. Penguicon ( is scheduled to happen April 22-24, 2005 in Novi, MI. We have a much larger gaming area this year, but we need people like you to run more games and fill that space. Scheduled gaming will be happening all day and all night, non-stop, but there will be plenty of tables for open gaming as well. Games are not ticketed, and anyone attending Penguicon can play as much as they like, but there will be sign-up sheets, especially for very popular events. All sorts of games are welcome!

We already have several great events lined up, as well as demos by industry insiders. For designers, there will even be a prototype play testing track. So how do you get in on the action?

First, e-mail me (gaming AT penguicon DOT org) with a list of the events you'd like to run, using the following as a guide:

Event Name (ex. Crokinole)
Facilitator Name(s) (ex. Clark Rodeffer)
Player Range (ex. 2 to 4 players)
Approximate Length (ex. 1 hour)
Brief Blurb (ex. This traditional dexterity game from southern Ontario takes the rough and tumble schoolyard game of marbles and makes it more respectable, more polite, more ... Canadian. No experience necessary.)

If there are specific times when you'd like your event to happen, and/or if you want me to keep an eye out for certain other gaming events to avoid scheduling conflicts, please let me know those conditionals as well, and I'll do my very best to fit the schedule together (ex. you'd prefer to run your game in the early afternoon, but if there's a Dos Rios tournament, please don't schedule it at the same time).

If you get at least three hours of scheduled games in the program book, I'll put you on a "Papal Bull List" so you can get a discount on your Penguicon pre-registration. The discounted rate will be $25 instead of whatever the published pre-registration rate is at the time, but it will only work for pre-registration (not at-the-door), and your games have to be on the schedule first so I can document it to the registration folks. If you get at least nine hours of scheduled games on the program, I'll get you some forms to fill out at the convention that (provided the con makes enough money not to write bad checks afterwards) will even reimburse the your $25 pre-registration fee. How great is that?

I hope to hear from you soon!
