Hyphen-Con the 14th (2018)

Post by SpaceMonkey » Mon Sep 24, 2018 8:37 am

Time to start getting ready for this year's Hyphen-con, our 14th one!

When: Saturday Nov 10th and Sunday Nov 11th, 2018
Where: Mordraine's Offices (thanks for hosting again Andy!) [Note, offices will be in the same location in Sorrento Valley area, details/address to follow later]
What: RPGs and Potluck on Sat, Board/Card/other games on Sun. Game swap (bring your old games to trade) either day, but Sat usually has more people and trades. Prizes & other craziness TBD
Who: is running things? We vote! So start thinking about what you want to run (max of 2 submissions per GM please). I'll be posting the 'Pimp your game' thread right after this post.
Why: Because 'The Hyph' is awesome!



Discussion, things I forgot, etc - this thread you are reading right now.
Put your hat in the ring to run games - the 'Pimp Your Game' thread.
More to come later.

--> Make sure to Subscribe to this thread so you will be notified when new stuff happens. I'll be posting to last year's thread so everyone subscribed there will get an email also and I'll send out a mass email to all users. I think Chris has posted to Facebook also.

Hi, thanks for taking my call. Long time listener (lies), first time poster (truth).

During what times-ish does the action typically take place? I might actually be able to join in the fun!

Good questions! I usually post this stuff later, but might as well do it now:

Stuff to think about before Hyph:
* what you are bringing to the potluck (one year we ended up with mostly desserts, so post what you are thinking about if you want to coordinate)
* games & rpg books for the trading table
* boardgames to bring on Sunday
* GMs: your notes & pregens ;)

REMINDER: The venue is at Mord's work building off Carroll Canyon road (805 and Mira Mesa exit - actual address posted later. I try not to leave his address up in public too long)

[[Saturday the 10th - RPG Day]]
Doors open: 11:30 or Noon (hanging out, food, trades, etc)
First Game: ~ 12:30 or 1pm - play to 5pm
Break for more food, etc.
Second Game: ~ 6:00 or 6:30 - play till 10 or 11
Break for more hanging out; some folks leave
Unofficial/sometimes ~Midnight game for anyone still around (traditionally short; ends ~2 or so) [play it by ear] - Mord hasn't been keen on this the last few years. I remain hopeful.

[[Sunday the 11th - Boardgame Day]]
Doors open: 11:30 or 12:00]
Freeform board games & trading & such
Break for lunch (usually go to one of the eateries around; Sunday isn't so much with the potluck)
More Freeform board games & trading & such
End around 6pm or so probably

Do we know what games will be scheduled in which slot yet? Trying to decide if coming down for the first slot will be at all practical for me.

Chris usually does that the morning of. I'm sure he could keep you in mind if you convey your data to him.
