St. John's Tabletop Day a Huge Success!

Newfoundland Gamer would like to thank everyone who came out for the St. John's Tabletop Day festivities at the Rocket. Thank you to Jungle in a Zoo for hosting a fun day, and thank you to Timemasters for sponsoring the event and donating prizes!! Over 100 people attended the event throughout the day, and everyone had a great time! We would also like to give a big thanks for those who bought 50/50 tickets to support the Autism Society. We sold $168 in tickets, and the winner of the 50/50 draw was Laura Rowsell who won $84! Congratulations Laura!

We would also like to thank those who filled out our survey for Cheat for Charity. If you filled out a survey, we will be drawing for the winner of the $50 gift certificate for Timemasters next week. We received some great feedback regarding this upcoming event, which we are planning to hold in May. We will be posting more details regarding this event late next week, or early in the following week.

Thank You to St. John's Games Club For Games Donations


I would like to officially thank St. John's Games Club for their donation of several games to the Autism Society of Newfoundland and Labrador. This has greatly expanded the Autism Society's games library. I can't wait to sit down with the kids and play a few of these! I would also like to say that they are a great group of gamers, and I look forward to attending future meetings.

Update on Donations for Autism Society of Newfoundland and Labrador


A couple of weeks ago, I put out a call for tabletop game donations for the Autism Society of Newfoundland. So far the response has been overwhelmingly positive. Individuals from a number of local groups began asking questions, and looking at their game collections for possible donations. For anyone still unclear on what games would be appropriate, I received an email today from Jeanelle Humphries, the therapeutic recreation coordinator, with a wish list of games:

Hope this helps, if there are any further questions feel free to send me a PM.

How Lovecraft's Mythos Entered the World of Gaming


As some of you may have noticed, today marked the 76th anniversary of Howard Phillips Lovecraft's death in 1937. H.P. Lovecraft's work has had a huge impact not only on the horror genre, but has also inspired a large number of popular video and tabletop games. The Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game, first published in 1981, was the first commercial game to adapt the work of H.P. Lovecraft*. There is little doubt that this game influenced all Lovecraftian games that came after it, and that it contributed greatly to Lovecraft's influence on popular culture. Looking around the web, I found a great post on RPG Geek by Sandy Peterson, the author of the Call of Cthulhuroleplaying game. In it he discusses the process of adapting Lovecraft's stories into an roleplaying game, and how the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game into being.

Read Sandy's post here.

*Note: While I recognize that one Dungeons and Dragons supplement did Lovecraftian dieties in 1980, this was not the focus of the game, and it didn't adapt the tone of Lovecraft's work.

Looking For Game Donations for Autism Society of Newfoundland and Labrador


I am trying to find tabletop games to donate to the Autism Society of Newfoundland and Labrador. Right now most of the games they have are targeted at younger kids. However, there are also many young adults in their programs. The best games would probably be those that appeal to both the young and old. For example, the guys that I work with seem to enjoy Battleship. Tabletop games are great for kids with autism because they can help to promote social interaction and teach social skills, so any donations would be greatly appreciated.

If you are interested in donating something please send me a message.

Thanks,
Azrael
