The RinCon Gaming Convention at the Tucson Convention Center just keeps growing and growing!
RinCon 10 is coming up again, this Columbus Day Weekend. October 8, 9, and 10, we're having a weekend of fun. Our total attendance for '09 put us at doubling the size of the previous year's convention. Sometime before two o'clock on Saturday, we had an alert from the box office that we were about to run out of day pass badges! RinCon '09 was huge. Attendees made the trip down from Oregon, across from Hawaii, and over from Maine. Guests came in from as far away as Georgia and Washington. The attendance level and feel good vibe of the con was just amazing. The indie games crowd describe the RinCon Gaming Convention as the West Coast Dreamation; gaming professionals are calling it the industry's playground. It's going to be amazing.
The Tucson RPG Guild grows to 400 members!
SAGA has been running the Tucson RPG Guild for just over two years, growing the guild from eighty members to over four hundred; from one monthly event to multiple weekly and monthly events. The Tucson RPG Guild has run the world's first Gamemasters Conference (the fourth is coming up at RinCon 10). We've run some of the largest organized events--the attendance of our Dungeons and Dragons 4e launch party was in the top 10% of all launch party events, worldwide. Not to bad for a event that wasn't held at a game store.
