Spaghetti ConJunction 1b! 
 
Yes, on Saturday, October 21st, 2017, Simon Burley, James Mullen, and Pookie will be hosting Spaghetti ConJunction 1b, the twice a year one-day roleplaying in Birmingham city centre. The venue is the Geek Retreat cafe, less than ten minutes walk from each of Birmingham’s three train stations and the event starts at 10 am and finishes at 7:30 pm. Last time at Spaghetti ConJunction, we had almost twenty games on offer for the day across two slots, providing a mix of genres, systems, and playing styles, and this time we want to see just as many games and just as much choice. We we really are looking forward to seeing you and providing a venue to play some great games.
 
Games on the Day
At Spaghetti ConJunction 1a we had games for systems as diverse as I Love the Corps, Firefly/Cortex+, Savage Worlds, Dungeons & Dragons, Fifth Edition, The Code of Steam and Steel, and HeroQuest 2. We are currently accepting submissions for games for Spaghetti ConJunction 1b, so if you have something you want to run on the day, please let us know.
 
Charity Support
Both the profits and the raffle money raised from Spaghetti Conjunction will go to its designated charity, Birmingham Children's Hospital Charity. At Spaghetti ConJunction 1a we were supported with raffle prizes from Pelgrane Press, Sixtystone Press, and more and raised £90. Of course, we would like to see just as many this time and if you can offer a raffle prize, please let us know (and bring it along on the day!).
 
Geek Retreat
The venue is a gaming cafe and is offering table service for Spaghetti ConJunction, so you can order your lunch ahead of time and have it delivered to your table shortly afterwards. Plus, as a Spaghetti ConJunction attendee, you can receive discounts on both food and drink. Check our website for full details.
 
Website
Spaghetti ConJunction has a website as well as Google+ community and a FaceBook group. Just search for Spaghetti ConJunction.
