Thursday was RickFest Primus, and I’ve had a couple days to unwind, clean up, and prepare for tomorrow. Tomorrow, of course is RickFest Secundus, the day for larger, longer games.
Primus was great. Nearly twenty people overall showed up at various times, with the height being thirteen ((Thirteen people kind of fit in my living room, as long as you count me standing in the dining area and Melly sitting on the floor. I’ve been doing some looking for a place to rent next year to accommodate the crowd. It looks eminently doable.))Â for a big game of Cards Against Humanity. Folks started showing up around 1:00 in the afternoon, and the last of the gang left around 11:30. In that time, I got to play in ten games, so I count that as a win. Also, people seemed to have fun.
My plan for limiting the day to shorter games had the desired effect: everyone who stopped by got to play in at least one game, and didn’t spend too long just sitting around waiting for stuff to wrap up before new games started.
Secundus starts at noon ((Realistically, it starts whenever people show up and want to game, but I’m not letting anyone in until noon.)), and again runs until the last people leave. Some of the games on offer tomorrow:
- Arkham Horror
- War of the Ring
- Battlestar Galactica
- Conquest of Nerath
- Risk: Legacy
- Leverage RPG
- Marvel Heroic Roleplaying
- Apocalypse World
- Dungeon World
- Mansions of Madness
- Betrayal at the House on the Hill
All of these are in addition to any of the shorter games folks want to play, either instead of a long game or while waiting for a game to wrap and a new one to begin.
So, another full day of gaming. Looking forward to it.
