GenCon 2018-GameWick Events

July 14th, 2018
Conventions, GameWick News, Gen Con

From aliens to zombies (and now even some Lovecraft), we have a full-throttle SHUFFLING HORROR event schedule for our friends and fans at Gen Con 2018 (Aug 2-5)! Lots of ROSWELL 51 and PITTSBURGH 68 sessions to play in. Plus, we’ve got a limited number of INNSMOUTH 32 sneak peek games, too (that’s the next creepy game in our Shuffling Horror series). If that’s not enough, our night-time Science Fiction Double Feature returns for its third straight year. The GameWick ghouls are going to be shuffling like mad!

All Events Are Located in the ICC, Hall C, Red Tables 25 – 28

Each game session is about an hour and a half. With almost forty events available, our games are running non-stop during exhibit hall hours. We encourage players with generics to stop by our event area. There’s always a chance we can fit you into a game due to no-shows or extra table space.

And… the proximity of our games to the Exhibit Hall is ideal for those who want to shop/play/shop!

from 10 am thru 4pm, events start on the hour.

Origins 2018: WEGS Dwarf Walks Returns!

May 4th, 2018
Conventions, The WEGS Fray

We are super excited for our return to Origins Game Fair this year! We’ve got a booth, a Shuffling Horror secret reveal, and a bunch of games on the grid! In addition, we’ll be running our classic Dwarf Walks Into A Bar scenario. It’s been a couple years since we did that! Many Old Skool fans were introduced to the WEGS system with this over-the-top tavern brawler. The synopsis: It’s a slow night at the Tongue of Dung, the seediest tavern in the worst part of rotting Old Ikkspatt, but not for long…”

There’s only one session on Saturday night, so you better ACT FAST!

March 4th for Gygax!

March 4th, 2018
Conventions, Gary Con, The WEGS Fray

It’s March 4th, Old Skool-ers! I’m taking a moment today to acknowledge the “life well played” of Gary Gygax (July 27, 1938 – March 4, 2008). He’s the reason I got hooked on roleplaying games back on Christmas ’79, when I unwrapped the Basic Dungeons & Dragons box set. Man, the adventures I’ve been on since then: from the Keep on the Borderlands straight through to our own GameWick Games​ booth at Gen Con Indy.

PIC-March-4TH-Gorgax-400X600

Yup – it’s all due to Gygax’s efforts to get D&D out into this world when he started his game company, TSR. My little game company and my wacky rpg system WEGS Old Skool​ is done in this same spirit. In fact, if you’re reading this, all credit goes right back to Mr. Gygax. Most of you reading this I’ve met at a gaming con – so, you know what I’m talking about. Some of you I will even see at this week’s Gary Con Gaming Convention​ (where the Gygax family holds a gaming weekend in his honor).

March 4th, friends!

L. Willy Wick

Thank you, Mr. Gygax!
