GMT Weekend at the Warehouse
April 26-29, 2018
We had a great time with about 100 gamers at our most recent GMT Weekend at the Warehouse on October 5-8. Thanks to all of you who attended and made the event so much fun!
We do now have dates for our Spring Weekend, so come join us on April 26-29, 2018, for our 35th (!) GMT Weekend at the Warehouse! We’ll spend the better part of 3 1/2 days, often long into the night, playing your favorite GMT (and non-GMT, if you’d prefer) games. This is mostly an open gaming event, although we do have tournaments from time to time.
Gaming starts around 8 each morning and goes until Mike Lam and the Down in Flames Aces event players collapse from exhaustion in the wee hours of the morning.
Quite a few GMT Designers and Developers usually attend these weekends, but we don’t know yet for certain who’ll be here in the Spring. We’ll be updating this list often between now and the event as we know exactly who’s attending this time.
- Gene Billingsley will run a Friday demo and test Mr. President.
- John Zrimc will be back (missed you in the Fall, John!) hosting his bi-annual game of Sword of Rome on Friday.
- As usual, Mike Lam will be running the Down in Flames Aces Event – which.is.awesome! Come join Mike and a friendly group of air enthusiasts in this fast-action card game of aerial mayhem!

We looked in the previous entry of these Pendragon Chronicles to some elements of the Arthurian Legend that can be found in Pendragon – The Fall of Roman Britain. The game is also drawing from what little historical material came down to us through the centuries, i.e. mostly De Excidio et Conquestu Britanniae (“On the destruction and conquest of the Britains”, a pamphlet by a British monk, Gildas, circa 510), the Historia ecclesiastica gentis Anglorum (“Ecclesiastical history of the English People” by the English monk Bede, c. 730), the Historia Brittonum (“History of the Britons”, compiled by the chronicler Nennius c. 830), the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle (late 9th century), the Annales Cambriae (“Annals of Wales”, 12th century?), and, for flavor at least, the epic Welsh poem Y Gododdin by Aneirin (c. 600).
