Dragonflight 2013 convention program

coverI’ve finished preparing the program for the 2013 edition of Seattle’s Dragonflight game convention. It will be the 34th edition of the convention, and you can expect lots of board gaming, wargames, role-playing, miniatures games, etc.

In addition to the print version which will of course be available at the door that weekend (August 9-11, 2013), you can download it as an e-book in three different formats: .PDF (good for viewing onscreen on PC, iPad, etc.), .ePub (for Nook, Kobo, Sony Reader, etc.) and .mobi (for Kindle, etc.)

The files should be posted shortly to the official convention site, but you can also get them from:

  • ISSUU: Viewable online in magazine format; to download as PDF, click on “Share” in the bottom left area, then on “Download.
  • Google Drive: Here is the PDF version; and here are the .ePub and .mobi versions, zipped together including cover and metadata.

Dragonflight pre-convention program

CoverThe pre-convention program for the 2009 edition of the Dragonflight convention is now posted.  It offers a snapshot of the games scheduled to date.  It’s sure to change quite a bit by the time of the convention but hopefully it will whet your appetite!

Dragonflight coming to you in August!

Have you seen the new ads for Dragonflight on Metro Seattle buses? I think they look pretty darn cool. They’re reminding you that the oldest game convention in the Northwest — celebrating its 30th edition this year! — is coming in just four weeks. You can pre-register for $40 for the entire weekend until July 31; it will be $50 at the door. Day passes and children discounts available.

LAN Game coordinator needed

Dragonflight is looking for someone to oversee the LAN and computer gaming at this year’s Dragonflight.  Perks include free admission and lodging for the convention, plus unending fame and the gratitude of many convention-goers.
