During the Semester One break in April we run the President's Con...
2012 we are running RobzaCon over the weekend of the 21st and 22nd of April at the University of Auckland, in Commerce A and the Library basement.
Registration and hanging out will be from 9am.
We're still looking for people to confirm they're coming, and for people to offer games.
RobzaCon is a fun weekend where we rerun games from past events for new members of America, and run some new games too. It's also the first time we offer a Larp during the year. Finally, we have board games and space for hanging out.
$10 per day, $5 discount per member per weekend.

It is 1984 and the height of the oil boom. Harrington Oil is the most successful oil company
in the state of Texas. The Harringtons are old money, having originally made their money
from cattle ranching. Jack Harrington is a well respected pillar of the community.
1980’s Texas is all about money and oil. It doesn’t just matter who you are, but how much you are worth. The women are all beautiful with big hair, big smiles and big shoulder pads. Everything is larger than life. The older man is in vogue, they’re the ones with the money. The women around here may sometimes be loose but they are definitely not free.

"I knew she was trouble the minute she walked into my office. ‘Course, the dame had done so quite a few times before. Didn’t matter. Every time was like the first time, enough perfume to make a man dizzy, legs that seemed to never end, a voice like silk. In short, she was a dame worth killin’ for. I knew that. I’d done it. She sat down in a chair, told me there was a problem. Knew she needed me. Situation looked bad. Crooks had been killed, and don’t get me wrong. I’m an honest, God-fearing man. I don’t mind the bad guys droppin’ like flies. They’re the bad guys, after all. But this was different. Small-timers were dying too and the Chinese had skipped town completely. Balance was threatened. This could get bloody."
The three major crime organizations of Seattle are meeting for the first time. Mysterious vigilantes in colourful costumes have been offing men from all sides, and it's payback time. Intrigues will abound as Seattle's professional lowlifes gather to see who can come out on top or even just alive. This is your chance to be one of the strapping strongmen, deadly femme fatales or despicable rabbis who vie for power in this most perilous Scummit .
