"RPG Retro Review: Tower of Zenopus"

Over on Youtube, Captcorajus has a great 18 minute video review of the Zenopus Dungeon, entitled "RPG Retro Review: Tower of Zenopus" (link). He walks through the dungeon and includes images of his stunning Hirst Arts version of the dungeon. And he kindly refers viewers to this blog! He also mentions that he will playing in my Zenopus game at Scrum Con 2020 (Feb 29th).

Also see his 2015 review of the entire Holmes Basic rulebook (link).

Scrum Con 2020 - Register Now!

Registration for the second Scrum Con is now open, as of this past Saturday!

If you are in DC Metro area considering join us for this one day con on Leap Day 2020 (Sat Feb 29th). This time the event is being held in a larger venue, the Silver Spring Civic Building. This con is brought to you by the Second Saturday Scrum Club, of which I am a member.

Registration is $15, and allows you to sign up for games in both the morning and afternoon sessions. Games are split evenly between RPGs and Miniatures Games; see the Event Listing for a list. Most games start at 10 AM or 3:30 PM and run for 4 hours, but there are some shorter 2 hour games, and a few start at other times. 

Special guests include Zeb Cook, running Star Frontiers (already full, however), Bill Slaviscek running a Star Wars RPG game, and Ed Stark running a 5E Return to the Barrier Peaks

There will also be a flea market for buying or selling your previously owned games: "No hassle flea market! Bring your gaming items ready to be re-homed for our flea market area. Drop it off and go play some games!"

I'll follow up this post in the coming days with more posts highlighting the RPGs and Miniature Games.
