System: Munchkin
Time: 10:30 – 12:00
GM: Slev
Players: 8
In a game with a twist, two parties of Munchkins will descend into this dark and terrible dungeon, but this is Munchkin, so only one person will leave here alive!

WOE IS ME, MYSELF & I
System: Chez Goth
Time: 11:30 – 13:00

Mope, pine, and contemplate the pointlessness of getting your roommate to clean up the black eyeliner they left everywhere.

Time: 12:45 – 14:00
GM: MIB 2
Players: 6
Many have come to this distant isle to battle honourably to be crowned champion. Unfortunately, someone invited the Munchkins too…

MUNCHKINS THAT GO BUMP IN THE NIGHT
System: Munchkin Bites
Time: 13:15 – 14:30
GM: MIB 3
Players: 6
High in the mountains lies Castle Dread, home to the most vile and despicable creatures known to man. Yes, that’s right, Munchkins.

RAIDERS OF THE FIRST ISSUE
System: Chez Dork
Time: 15:15-16:30
GM: MIB 4
Players: 6
Scrounge every last penny you can to buy the collectibles that MUST be yours, and become the envy of all your friends.

IN SPACE, NO-ONE CAN HEAR YOU CHEAT
System: Star Munchkin

FORMULA FUR
System: Warhamster Rally
Time: 17:15 – 18:30
GM: Slev
Players: 5
Mount your giant riding beast and race around the icy course, dodging Battle Budgies and bashing Kobolds as you go. First past the post wins – by any means necessary.

WHO WOULD LIVE IN A HOUSE LIKE THIS?
System: Chez Geek
Time: 18:00 – 19:15
GM: MIB 5
Players: 8
Live the high life in a house full of geeks, dorks, nerds, Trekkies, comic book fans, gamers and other miscreants, as you try to scrape together enough money for food, drink, and limited editions. Plus the endless search for boor and Nookie…

I’ll also have some comics, books, games and Dorkstock T-shirts on hand.

I never know how much stuff to bring, so fingers crossed…if you bring too much, it’s depressing because you think your stuff’s awful. If you bring too little, it’d depressing because it’s an opportunity lost. Yes, welcome to the lose/lose way that I think about stuff like this, gang! Grin. On the plus side, EVERYBODY who comes to the con should get a free Dork Tower comic book, and this will be the first con that’s got Issue 29 on sale (no spoilers, those of you who’ve read it!)

I’m in full-blown preparation mode until then, so LJ updates will most likely be few and far between. On the web site, comics will run Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday this week, and Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Sunday next week.

Hope to see folks at Dragonmeet, London’s friendliest gaming convention, this Saturday!

John
