WittCon, an alcohol-free event that is open to the public, brings together game enthusiasts of all experience levels in a friendly, inviting atmosphere. Larry Wick, creator of WEGS (Wickedly Errant Game System), is the featured guest at this year's event. He will make a presentation following a dinner scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
Registration begins at noon, and the cost is $5, which includes dinner and registration fees. The first games begin at 1 p.m. and will continue until approximately midnight. Many games will be available, including two new board games, "Dungeon Slam!" and "M.O.E.: The board game," presented for testing by the community.
Other events include "Ninja Nutiness" (D&D Oriental Adventures), "Are You a Werewolf?" and "God Durnit!" (Scion). In addition, a representative from Reaper Miniatures will be on hand for a free Paint and Take table throughout the convention and an event titled "Introduction to Role-playing" will instruct newcomers about role-playing, how to create characters and a short introductory game.
Balloting for a costume contest will take place throughout the convention, with awards to be handed out at dinner. University rules and regulations prohibit weapons as part of the costumes on the premises.
