Madison Games Day 4 – Success!

Madison Games Day was a huge success!

Folks started coming in right at opening, filling tables and playing games all the way to midnight. Todd Jensen repped Rio Grande Games and kept the dice rolling and cards flipping like a champion. Game with the Creator! was well-received and the Reaper Miniatures-sponsored Paint & Take Event was a lot of fun for everybody.

We’re really happy with how the day went. A HUGE THANKS to everyone who made it, who played and ran games or just dropped by to show support!

We have a lot of ideas for making Madison Games Day 5 even better and we hope you’ll continue to keep Madison the best gaming city in the USA!

MADISON GAMES DAY 4: Bigger & Better – May 8th 2010

Madison Games Day returns bigger and better than ever before!

Celebrate gaming with a day dedicated to playing them! Madison Games Day 4 is a chance to meet new people and play new games. We invite everyone in the area (or willing to make the trek) to come in and celebrate gaming by trying new games and meeting new people. As with previous Madison Games Days, there will be roleplaying games, card games, and board games, including sessions run by designers from around the area. If you have something you’d like to play, bring it!

There is a $5 admission price for this event that will go toward paying for the venue as well as helping grow Madison Games Day.

Please note there has been a change in venue. While the good folks at the Pizza Oven were very kind to us in previous events, because of your enthusiasm and participation, we’ve simply outgrown their space! Madison Games Day 4 will be at the Howard Johnson on East Washington Avenue in the Maple, Oak, and Redwood II rooms on the second floor. The new venue is comfortable, spacious, and has plenty of extra room for future events (which means we’ll hopefully be able to stay here for many more!).
