All of us here love gaming (I think it’s safe to say. Otherwise, I’m not really sure this is the right website for you). Many of us also love going to gaming conventions. And then you throw in gaming for a good cause and there’s not much better you can get. And that’s just what you get with Heroicon, coming back to Decatur, IL next month.
So for those that might not know, Heroicon is a convention that helps raise funds for Games for Troops. The charity is pretty much what it sounds like. They send board games and card games to the men and women serving overseas and to military hospitals. This second-year event will include new events like a trivia night on Friday, a game auction, and more dealers in the dealer’s hall. There’s a large area for open gaming, as well as a big game library that you can use to try out a variety of games. There’s sanctioned events for Magic: the Gathering, NetRunner, Pathfinder, and more.
Registration is open now. The event will be held from May 20 to May 22.
