Play On Con is a gaming convention in Birmingham, AL. This year it will take place at the 4H Center just outside of Birmingham. POC combines every type of gaming you can imagine. Board games. Card games. RPG. LARP. Video games. Casino games. Miniatures. Tournaments. Other things I don’t even know how to categorize like table tossing and Clay-o-rama! Not to mention some fabulously fun parties and costumes! (No, you don’t have to dress in a costume. I’m theatrical so I adore dressing up.)
I’m happy to say the boyfriend and I went last year and had the time of our lives! It’s a small convention in its sixth year. I want to make sure we get the word out because the founders are wonderful people with wonderful ideas for making sure everyone gets everything they could ever want out of a gaming and sci-fi geekdom convention!
If you’re into games of any kind to any degree, even if you’re just a casual gamer like me who only plays when out with friends or there’s a power outage, check your calendars and free them up for the weekend of July 18-21, 2013. Schedule in that vacation time and join us! And/or tell your gamer friends to join us! You won’t regret it!
