In addition to the sizable list above, I'd like to add a local mini-Con.

Good Omens gaming group is sponsering their Good Omens mini-Con on 18 July, 2009 at:

Endgame

921 Washington Street

Oakland CA, 94607

USA

This is as much charity food drive as it is gaming con, so anyone interested is encouraged to attend.

As you can see, the game docket is filled, and there is no BRP listed, but fun should still be had all around.

I also suggest that anyone in the SF Bay Area that is interested keep an eye on the Endgame site. They hold mini-Cons roughly quarterly.

Chimériades was simply FANTASTIC. There were lots of new French-language books for CoC, very impressive (high quality, hard cover, nice illos...).

Charlie's BBQ was as great as ever!

And I have finally understood HOW HeroQuest works!!! I think I do like HQ 2nd ed.

I don't know if it's appropriate to post an east coast U.S. mini-con here, but I'm going to be running a BRP scenario there. Three days of cabin camping plus board and role-playing games in a beautiful park.

Sounds like fun, if I was just a little bit closer I'd go. I live in New Hampshire. Not really too far, but far enough.
