The Tower of Gygax Are you ready to strap on your sword and shield 'Old School' style? Can you survive a dungeon of old school gaming played at its finest: fast and furious with horrible enemies and deadly traps lurking behind every door? Join us as we play the game that started it all and remember the man who created an industry. Audience participation is encouraged, so come play or just observe the massacre. The Tower of Gygax was an event premiered at Gen Con 2008, as a memorial to the late E. Gary Gygax. It was intended as a homage to the original AD&D modules, and frequently described as being in the style of "Tomb of Horrors". The various rooms and encounters in this endless dungeon were written by an all-star cast of designers and authors. This event runs throughout the entire show--beginners welcome--and there are even rumors that a few of our VIPs will be guest DMing the Tower. Last post for the final raffle before Event Registration kicks off! Like, Share, and Comment on this and all our previous posts this past week to win! http://registration.nexusgamefair.com/event_view.php?ee=11104218
