Kapcon 2020

KapCon 29 in 2020 is on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th of January – i.e. Wellington anniversary weekend.

KapCon is a not-for-profit role-playing game convention run annually in Wellington, New Zealand, every January. It is a weekend of role-playing, in a diverse range of styles and systems. Over the weekend, more than 30 individual games are run, with volunteer GMs (or storytellers, narrators or facilitators) running games between one and six times over the course of the convention.

Since this is an SF/F/H news blog we would be remiss if we didn’t note that there will be a good number of genre related storylines among the games. More details on their web site.

Discover the gods of gaming at Te Papa

Given the overlap between SF fandom and gaming we thought you would like to be reminded that a new exhibition at Te Papa has just opened. Called “Game Masters”, it features over 100 playable games from some of the world’s most influential video game designers – including Peter Molyneux, Warren Spector, Tim Schafer, and Hideo Kojima.

“Play your way through 40 years of gaming history over three spectacular interactive zones.” More information at the Te Papa site.

The exhibition runs 15 December 2012 – 28 April 2013 in the Visa Platinum Gallery, Level 4. Admission charges apply.
