Linkety Link

I didn't play any games this shabbat. But I'm still trying to recover from a dinner with myself, one 15 year old boy, and nine - count'em - nine teenage girls. Shudder.

Most of my link items go on to Purple Pawn nowadays, but I have a few for Yehuda:

Israel Gaming Conventions

Over the Passover holiday season, a number of gaming related conventions occur.

My own club, the Jerusalem Strategy Gaming Club, will be holding a Games Day on Hol Hamoed Passover, as it always does. This year it will be Wednesday, April 23. Gaming is at my house. Call me at 0545-987034 for details.

Bigor is an annual roleplaying con in Tel Aviv. This year it is from Tuesday to Thursday, April 22-24. Olamot is a fantasy themed con, also in the Tel Aviv area, running from Monday to Wednesday, April 21-23. Both will have fantasy related gaming, including CCG and some board and card gaming.

A reader writes to tell me about GameIS2008, a full day event about interactive entertainment (aka video games) in Hertzelia.
