HoytCon 2017

Good day everyone, this coming week I will be hosting HoytCon 2017. Last year the event was held at my brother's gaming emporium in New Brunswick and this year it moves to Ontario. Starting on Friday August 25th My brother, father, and I will embark on three packed days of gaming and there will be player slots open. If you see a game that you want in on, send me a message and I will let you know if there is any space remaining. I ask that if you wish to drink anything beyond the complimentary/themed alcohol that you bring your own to reduce my costs.
