I’m a former member of JIGG who, having moved back to Chicago, am now involved
with a new group dedicated to out of print games and older game editions–we
affectionately call these “dead” games. The group is called the Dead Games
Society and I was curious if anyone from JIGG would like to join. We have
members so far in the United States, Britain, Brazil and Australia but I would
like to see us expand into Japan.
The DGS has earned premiere group status with Gencon and on top of our own
dedicated website and forums, we have a forum on the Gencon boards as well.
http://community.gencon.com/forums/230.aspx . We are also working with GAMA
(The Game Manufacturs Association) and will be running a 1st Edition AD&D
tournament at Origins 2011, in addition to many other “old school” games.
If interested, check out our site at http://www.dgsociety.com and maybe you can help us
find other gamers interested in the “old school” or “dead” games. Also check out
our blog at http://20thcenturygeek.com where we post articles on gaming and
geekdom from the last millennium.
