Memorial Day Weekend – May 27-30
Burlingame Hyatt Regency
1333 Bayshore Highway
Burlingame, CA 94010
We pretty much consider KublaCon to be the Bay Area’s best gaming event – so much so that we’re going to be there doing a ton of stuff all weekend long. We hope you’ll come down and have some fun, play some games, and get excited about the state of gaming in our backyard. And if you have time amidst the crazy plethora of events being offered at the convention, come say hi to us!
While we don’t contribute to most local conventions with a storefront in the Dealer’s Room, we instead choose to represent the store by running a bunch of great participatory games throughout the convention. We’ve compiled this year’s list of what we’re doing below in case anyone’s planning on attending and wants to drop by. Click below for more!
To those not attending but still wanting some gaming fun, we’ve chained the very noble Max and Mike to the counter to take care of the store all weekend long. We still have a full schedule of events and plenty of space for open gaming, so give a call or stop in for some fun around the homefront.
Saturday 11am-1pm & 2-4pm – Infinity Demo (Regency Foyer)
Andre will be demoing some quick-play games of one of the best sci-fi miniatures skirmish systems out there – Infinity! We’ll be using four different starter boxes for the game which give a great introduction to the rules and some of the cool special weapons options. This game is deep and the demos necessarily only scratch the surface, but we will have fun in what we think is the best miniatures game on the market. And if you can’t play, at least stop by to congratulate Andre on actually painting four full forces in time for the convention!
Saturday 9:30pm-Late – Open Gaming Night with Gamescape
We like to unwind a bit after a hard day of playing and get some dinner in the area, followed by a night of board games and whatever else goes at the Open Gaming tables. Of course, we welcome any of our regulars (and prospective regulars!) to join us and enjoy a late night of fun. We’re much more relaxed when pulled from behind the counter. Really.
Sunday 10am-7pm – Flames of War Kubla Tournament (Regency Ballroom)
Join Darren and Nick for THE definitive Bay Area Flames of War tournament – a Battlefront National Qualifier and part of the NorCal 2011 Tournament Series! Set in Late War, we’ll be using the complete 2nd Edition rules with 1750-point army choices from any of the published rulebooks or official PDFs. PDF lists will only be allowed on the condition that they are pre-submitted a week before the tournament. All army lists will be reviewed before the tournament to ensure accurate composition. Games will be held in 2.5-hour blocks. Prize support will be thick, provided by both Battlefront and Gamescape.
Of course, there are a heap of gaming events going on all weekend long, and you can find a .pdf of the schedule at the Kubla site for a detailed breakdown. If you have any questions at all or want to know more about any aspect of the convention, visit the KublaCon website or contact us soon. Hope to see you at the con!
