Since 1972, Metro Detroit Gamers has been a staple in the area for everything gaming. From WW2 war games to modern sci-fi board games and everything in between, it can be found at an MDG event. At WinterCon 2017 this was no different. Games were abundant and the gamers even more so, and just as their website boasts, they hold one thing above all else, having fun!
The group’s core of players has expanded over the last few years as the hobby has picked up. Even though these players have been around since the beginning, they were incredibly welcoming to the new blood. With gamers from young to old, and with tastes from classical to modern everyone could find a game to enjoy and learn.
The con itself also offered up raffle tickets for playing games that allowed you to pull from their prize table, which was full of both popular games and hidden gems. Play a game, get a ticket, win a game. Sounds like a win-win to me!
Tucked into private rooms, tabletop RPGs were spinning tales of adventure, horror, and heroism with a number of games being played. Stumbling into a group getting their Classic Dungeon Crawl on made me want to sit down and roll up a character.
All in all the event was a wonderful time and all those who enjoy games of any kind should add WinterCon to their calendars because they won’t regret joining this crowd.
