I’m going to take a moment to shill for some friends:
So, if you’re into boardgames, zombies, or both: be aware of the game and check out the Kickstarter.
Speaking of living in Northern Virginia: something I’ve been remiss in noting here* is the DC Geeks blog that (another set of ) some of my friends run. It’s dedicated to tracking, advertising, and documenting geeky things in the DC/NoVA/MD region. This ranges from roller derby to video game art exhibitions to LARPing and on. I’ve tried to keep them hip to local wargaming events, but not methodically or regularly. I probably should change that.
If you’re nearish to the nation’s capital and are into the sorts of things that would be featured on a blog about geekery in DC, you should check them out.
* Negligence? Or deliberate snubbing over not being interviewed as the region’s preeminent expert on piles of Warpstone? Jerks.
