Gaming at 8Pi-Con

Pi-Con hosts game rooms with several tabletop board games, tabletop role-playing games, live action role-playing (LARP), collectible card games, and a video games.

Drop in for a pick-up game of your choice, or take part in a scheduled game demonstration.

Already planned for this year:

Friday, 7:00 p.m.:
Fiasco – by Bully Pulpit games – Fiasco is a game set right on the edge between role-playing and improv.
Each Fiasco game is built on a specific set of story elements, called a playset, that determines the nature of the characters and their relationships.
For Pi-Con the playset is No Strings Attached (http://fiascoplaysets.com/#nostringsattached), a playset designed for a story inspired by the Jim Henson company.

Saturday, 2:00 – 6:00 p.m.:
Fate – by Evil Hat games – A Fate Accelerated game set in the Shadowrun universe.
A team of runners has been hired to escort a teenage girl to a reunion with her father.
The trouble is, you need to break into a high security AzTech facility to break her out first.

Sunday, 11:00 a.m.:
Cards Against Humanity – A horrible card game designed for despicable people.
You will laugh the whole time, and feel utterly ashamed afterward. http://cardsagainsthumanity.com/

Concardia – A collectible card game in the truest sense of the word. Players collect cards from different conventions, vendors, and guests to build decks to play against one another. http://www.concardia.info/

LARPing

Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Saturday 8:00 p.m. – midnight (or later)
Players take the roles of the Garou, a race of werewolves that hide just outside human society.
The Garou protect the spirit of the Earth, Gaia, by letting loose their rage on the corrupted humans and creatures of the night that endanger her.
