For the past few years, the Boston IF gang has hosted community get-togethers in association with various local game-related shindigs. (First PAX East, then NoShowConf.)

What with one thing and another, that's not happening in Boston this summer. (Although we will be in attendance at BostonFIG in September.)

However! Jim Munroe is running his second annual WordPlay festival in Toronto on November 8th. (Free admission.) This seems like a great associate-with event, so we would like to invite the IF world to show up and hang out that weekend.

Further details when Jim figures them out.

I haven't been making noise about this, but it's time to start!

Who wants to meet me in Toronto that weekend (Nov 8th), hang out, and talk about the state of the scene?

I am seriously thinking of going. I live about 500 kilometres east of Toronto, but I have family and friends I can stay with there. It would be great to meet people on this forum who I know in-username-only.

I'll get my passport updated. I can't say definitively right now, but I will say I would love to drive up to Toronto. If anyone else from Chicago through Detroit wants to carpool, we might make it fun.

We've talked about this, of course, but I figured I should make my intent public. So yes, I am very much hoping to be there.

Spoiler: show
Even more now that it might be one of my few chances to meet Emerald, because she is literally on the OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD. (Is that creepy? Sorry, not sorry.)

Possibly me! I <3 Toronto and it's pretty close to me, but also my schedule is constantly in flux.

Yay! Glad to hear there's a few folks considering it. If it makes a difference, I can try and arrange crashpads with local game enthusiasts for a night or two -- just get in touch with me at jim@handeyesociety.com. And it being late fall and not winter Toronto is still an enjoyable place to explore -- happy to point folks in interesting directions.

Hmm! I'll already be going to MIGS and PRACTICE in November, and Toronto isn't that far from Montreal/New York, so consider me a maybe!

(Also, is there still a CFP going on for WordPlay? It seems like a great venue for another performance of Coffee: A Misunderstanding...)

Oooh. Want want want. Joel was telling us about this at dinner last week, and it sounds amazing.
