ICON Israel and Games Day at the JSGC


This year's ICON, the annual celebration for science fiction, fantasy and role-playing fans, will be held in the Tel Aviv Cinematheque, October 9-14, Hol Hamoed Sukkot. Hours are 10:00 am to 3:00 am. The guest of honor will be Neil Gaiman (awesome). This year's subject topic is dreams.

I think the entrance fee is 60 NIS, and maybe 35 NIS for additional movies or RPG games. Discounts available under certain conditions, such as having membership at the Third Ear video store (which I have). Call +972-3-606-0800 for tickets, or Ticketnet Israel.


Games Day at the Jerusalem Strategy Gaming Club will be on Sunday, October 8, first day of Hol Hamoed Monday, October 9, second day of Hol Hamoed. Games Day will be from 10:00 am to around 10:00 pm. Bring your own food. Odds are that we will order out for dinner. I will provide some snacks and drinks, please bring more and/or bring some money to cover mine.

Games Day will be in my sukkah on the roof of 7 Hayarden St in Arnona, Jerusalem.

This is also a good time to contribute to the games club. A 100 NIS or so donation will allow me to order some new games along with my other Hannukah shopping. Aside from providing for a place to play games, the games club also lends games out to its members.

For more information, call me at +972-545-987-034 .

We’ve got a Q&A area set up over at The Wargamer to answer anything folks want to talk about, and to take suggestions of future article ideas with this dataset.
