Wow! What a weekend, full of returning friendly faces and so many new ones. The SnowCon staff wishes to thank each and every one of you for making this year’s event an amazing one. We saw some craziness on the gaming floor, from Catan Twister and Fancy Dress Talisman to Game Citadel’s Magic The Gathering GPT Quebec City event.
Our sponsors really help to make this happen and we hope you will continue to support them year round: Game Citadel (d20 co-sponsor), Flip the Table, Topsham Games, BAGG, Hull Breach!, and Fearlight Games. EmbroidME provided us with wonderful t-shirts (featuring wonderful art by Catey Eason) and came on board as our SWAG Bag Sponsor. We’ve also been lucky to have a great venue at the Black Bear Inn since we started this crazy SnowCon thing! Thank you for treating the hotel and event space with the love and care you normally reserve for your favorite character sheet.
There were more demos than ever at SnowCon this year. We hope you were able to playtest and demo Quest for the Antidote, Hull Breach! Corporate Wars, Coffins and Tombstones, and Pixel Lincoln at some point over the weekend. Thank you to those games’ designers and companies for bringing their games to SnowCon.
Guest GMs Jay Libby and Andre Kruppa returned this year with new RPG campaigns and experiences, thrilling players with their craft. If only we could fit more sessions with them in the schedule! Please connect with them online and let them know how much you appreciate them spending time at SnowCon every year.
Without the amazing support and work of ALL our GMs we’d have a pretty boring weekend. Thank you from the bottom of our dice bags! We hope you will continue to wear your SnowCon 2013 Gamemaster t-shirts with pride (but please wash them first!)
Because one weekend is never enough, our vendors brought great product for you to purchase and continue playing at home. We’re very grateful to have hosted Game Citadel, Crossroad Games, All the Chains, and NSB Games in this years Vendor Room.
Of course, an essential part of SnowCon every year is the Game Library which was managed by the Bangor Area Gamers Guild this year. They did an amazing job beefing up the selection as well as recommending and getting orphaned gamers started on new adventures.
SnowCon has evolved much over 5 years and it’s been great to add expansions like Friday’s “So You Meet in a Tavern …” kick-off party at the Bear Brew and Sunday’s after-party at The Family Dog. Not only do we wish to thank the staffs of both establishments for putting up with us (especially the Bear Brew’s amazing service for 3 years running), but DJ DeHuman8 and the 2013 Nerdprov Players for ushering in another great gaming weekend.
To all the volunteers, players, GMs and anyone we may have missed, THANK YOU again for making SnowCon great. We can’t wait to see you next year!
