Little Buddies GameDay Event

The Sci-Fi/Fantasy & Gaming Club will be hosting a group from the Little Buddies program for a Game Day on Saturday, March 12 from 10 AM – 2 PM in the Student Lounge (SSC 1200). Thus far, we have about 15 kids (ages 9 – 13) and their Big Buddies (adults) attending. We need folks who can run events that will last no more than 4 hours; video games, table-top/card games, miniatures games and the like would work best, though a brief RPG with pre-generated characters (D&D, Pathfinder, etc.) could also work. Pizza and pop will be provided by the club.

Thus far, Lisa has offered to run a Munchkin event, Brody and Lauren will bring Sentinels, and I’ll have a board and/or card game or two with me; we still need someone willing to bring in a gaming console or two, along with games and controllers, as well as a couple of other events. If you can assist with this, please contact Doc ASAP at allenj@cod.edu.

We also need players to participate and help in teaching our guests, so even if you don’t want to run something but would just like to join us for a few hours of gaming, please stop in!
