Strategicon's Orccon 2013 Invades Over Presidents' Day Weekend!

UK Game Design Legend Richard Breese Named Guest Of Honor

LOS ANGELES, CA (I-Newswire) February 6, 2013 - Strategicon's Orccon, the largest gaming convention in southern California, will be held February 15-18, 2013 at the Sheraton Gateway Hotel near the Los Angeles International Airport.

Worlds collide in this year's Orccon lineup. Guest of Honor Richard Breese, founder of R&D games, is best known for his Key series of nonviolent medieval-themed tabletop games such as Keydom (widely regarded as the first worker placement game) and Keyflower. Other special guests will include Justin and Anne-Marie De Witt of Austin-based Fireside Games, creators of Castle Panic and Bears!.

Role-playing is alive and well, with over 140 fantastic events scheduled, ranging from Savage Worlds to GURPS and spanning diverse universes from Marvel to Star Trek. Vintage Dungeons and Dragons fans can relive the Steading of the Hill Giant Chief while testing new D&D Next rules with the RPGA staff.

Mayfair Games' North American Settlers of Catan Championship Pre-Qualifier event offers a chance to win a trip to Origins 2013, plus everyone who participates gets a souvenir.

On the Warhammer front, the Southern California Games Workshop League will host its "Slaughter In Space" Independent Grand Tournament at the convention.

Newcomers will enjoy Gaming 101 sessions, which feature friendly, knowledgeable staff members teaching the fundamentals of the hottest games. Creative types can grab a brush at the Paint and Take area, where miniatures, paint, and expertise are provided.
