GeekNights will be appearing at MAGFest 9 this weekend (Jan 13 - 16) in Alexandria, VA! As part of the "MAG-9" Gaming Intellectual series of panels, we will sit on Technology and Game Design and Achievements and Meta-Gaming. We will also be performing one of our PAX favorites: Losing Should be Fun.

The MAGFest schedule, which may change, is online, along with descriptions of the panels and events.

Our MAGFest schedule:


Gaming Intellectuals - Achievements and Meta-Gaming noon Panel 2
Gaming Intellectuals - Technology and Game Design - 5:30pm Panel 2

Losing Should be Fun (lecture) - 3:00pm Panel 3

Outside of our panels, you will most likely find us playing board games at all odd hours of the night. We're hard to miss, and we have no responsibilities outside of the live show and panels, so feel free to say hi!


Not going to MAGFest?

If you can't make MAGFest (it's sold out at this point), don't forget the awesome NerdNYC Recess, which is also this weekend at 440 Studios in Manhattan! Luke Crane and Jared Sorensen will be there (and Jared is running Pumpkin Town for all of you Action Castle! fans!
