Be the best part of SecretsCon! Help us get the word out!
Based on all the feedback and experience we encountered with the prototype game JUMP! we are now announcing a new interactive game called STATION A. All of our interactive games can be found under the grouping GAMBOLS GAMES and this is the first full one. While it starts small the intent it to make gaming a game unto itself.
While all is at peace within Station A, agents too can find themselves at odds with their fellow agents. To start us all off on the right foot, we are working together to accomplish common goals, such as establishing a safehouse and other critical components of a successful intelligence agency. Work together for our common goal…
…and maybe occasionally the odd special mission.
Your mission (should you choose to accept it) is to select a Secrets Agent Codename and make contact with the records agent at our events. Then have them log your gameplay and that of other Secrets Agents. Every hour of time accrued goes towards the development of Station A.
Welcome to your ground-floor espionage opportunity!
I want to share our excitement that the Georgia Pathfinder Society will be returning to SecretsCon 2015.
We will have Warhorn set up soon so GM can begin getting their game times scheduled and players can reserve their spots early. There will be a special badge ribbon at con registration for players that pre-register and reserve their game in Warhorn.
Welcome back! Thank you for being an exciting part of the year to come.
You might detect a gradual slide to the mechanical and maniacal in the coming months. The theme for SecretsCon 2015 is Mad Science!
We have added a Maker section here on the website and are sponsoring theCobb County Maker Meetup and seeking other partners for our growing underground laboratory. If you find yourself seeking a lab coat, goggles and other Dr. Horrible accouterments you will know you are riding the wave. After all aren’t our game collections just a lab for creative exploration and problem solving?
Its too easy a joke. The #1 rule of book club is everybody talk about book club.
Or at least consider it. As a hobby, I have found that board gamers have an active reading life. I had been staying so busy that we gradually drifted game night to game night and I was invited to take a break and join the Metro Atlanta Geeks group for their book club.
It was a TON OF FUN! That month the book was American Gods by Neil Gaiman. I had limited exposure to his work directly but had heard about this book for ten years so I was eager to read it. It was a great joy which drove me to consume his related book The Anansi Boys. Also a great and entertaining read.
On some level this inspired me to begin asking if there was some interest in the Secrets Factory folks and more than a few responded with interest. This did not surprise me so here we are.
The plan is to meet the second Tuesday of each month at Bellas Pizzaria from 7:00 – 9:00 pm.
Next Month that will be June 10th. To start with I chose a book from my reading list but going forward we would vote on them the midnight before the meeting and sally forth for a month of quality reading.
For June 10th, in honor of Jim Butcher’s forthcoming, Skin Game (releasing May 27th, next in the Dresden Files series) I selected it. Maybe not the best first book, but in the interest of time, I selected one that several people I knew would be devouring as soon as it was released.
On the current poll there are several suggestions, but feel free to add your own. This meetup is designed to provide a monthly meal and social time as well as some focused discussions on the book of the month. Log in and tell us your favorite.
We hope you can join us soon!
What should we read for July? Your votes decide between now and the beginning of the June meetup. (You may add your suggestions too.)
