June 4th Is The “Day of Fudge”!
Alright folks, it is that time of year again!
Every year the first Saturday of June is the "Day of Fudge" where fans of the Fudge RPG system are encouraged to run Fudge game events out in public. You can run a game at your local game shop, at your public library, a local campus, or anywhere you get permission to host such an event. All you need to participate in the DoF is some imagination, and a little gumption!
I plan on running my own DoF event this year at my favorite game shop – Unique Gifts & Games in Grayslake, IL (82 Center Street). Here are the details so far:
Mars Attacks the Suburbs! or "This used to be such a nice neighborhood!"
Description: You and your friends had gathered to enjoy a nice summer barbecue, but suddenly from out of the sky a strange saucer shaped craft appeared and landed. Small green men with ray guns emerged from the craft. The town mayor approached them with open arms and good tidings of peace. They fried him on the spot. Can you survive the Martian invasion? Will you discover the secrets of these dastardly space men? Is there any cold beer left? Find out when – MARS ATTACKS THE SUBURBS!!!
- When? June 4th, 2-6pm.
- Who? Patrick Benson, from http://www.gnomestew.com will GM. That’s who! 😉 Plus 6 lucky players (pre-generated characters provided).
- Where? Unique Gifts & Games (just take a right at "Awesome!", and a left at "Amazing!").
- What? Flying saucers, aliens, and suburbanites.
- How? Fudge RPG, baby. Fudge RPG!
