Seven Days to CanGames 2017 - Come and Play! :)

Geez, it's the Friday before CanGames already.

This means that the 2017 edition of CanGames, the local Ottawa gaming convention being held at the Rideau Curling Club, is merely seven (7) (!!) days away, as it begins on Friday (the 19th of May). Hope to see folks from Ottawa and the surroundings, as well as folks from farther away, attending the convention.

And here's just a reminder of what I'll be running this year at CanGames.

Hope to see some of my LJ, WordPress, and Twitter friends and others (of course) at some of the games I'll be running next weekend. :)

Getting Ready for Friday Night Gaming

Got home from work, and felt really tired and a bit sick. (High blood sugar, resulting from not being on Invocana any longer.) Took a nap, and then did a bit of work reading up on one of the rpgs that I'll be running at CanGames in seven days.

I'm rather looking forward to this evening's gaming session with the Friday night gamers. They'll be doing another playtest of one of the CanGames 2017 that I'll be running next weekend. Am hoping they'll have a good time of it, too, this evening.

In the meantime, I need to get to the kitchen and put something on for supper.

Have a good evening, folks. :)
