Hey everyone, do you know what LRRCON is?
It’s a special celebration to mark 10(ish) years of LRR! It’s being held in Seattle, Washington on May 10th, and we’d really like it if you could come!
So, if you do come, what will you be able to do?
THE GAMES ROOM
DO YOU LIKE BOARD GAMES? HOW ABOUT MAGIC THE GATHERING?! Well good news, we have both!
Along with the 10th anniversary panel and the live show, LRRCon is about hanging out and playing games. We’ll be providing a board game library for your borrowing pleasure, and as many Magic cards we can get our paws on for drafting fun times! Though it doesn’t stop there. We also encourage all you MtG players to bring your Commander Decks, Standard Decks, Modern Decks… HECK bring your Legacy decks (no guarantee anyone else will) for pick up games of your favourite formats.
But what if you don’t know how to play magic and you want to learn? We can help you with that too. Stay tuned for further announcements!
LRR TRIVIA GRAND PRIX
The LRR Trivia Grand Prix is a brain-busting quiz competition, testing your knowledge of Loading Ready Run and all things geeky! Get together your team of up to 6 and prepare to do battle on the topics of video games, sci fi, fantasy, the interwebz, pop culture, random knowledge, and much more! Prizes and awesome swag are in store for the top teams!
Emceeing the event is Mike, aka IQ 2000, longtime friend to LRR who most recently took on blogging duties for Desert Bus 7. Mike is a 10-year veteran of competitive trivia, former president of his university’s trivia club, and the leader of Kathleen’s Geek Bowl trivia team. And, yes, according to an accredited online test, his IQ really is 2000. Hard to believe, but true.
Sign up your team in advance here!
The whole LRR crew will on hand to answer your questions, play some of our favorite videos and give you a sneak peak at upcoming stuff.
The evening of LRR Con, join us for a Dammit Liz-produced event! Special guests include:
- Kris Straub
- Kyle Stevens
- Nerd Improv with members of LoadingReadyRun
- The Doubleclicks
- and more!
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!
We’re also working really hard on adding even more awesome stuff to LRRCON to make it worth your while to come. I can’t spoil it yet… but we’re adding even more entertainment and fun. If you’d like to come, tickets are only $25.
And, if you want to stay overnight to enjoy the late-night fun (and why wouldn’t you?) you can get special hotel rates until this Friday! So book ASAP.
