Thanks for all the good tips, reverse blegs, and PAX wisdom in the comments of yesterday's PAX post—if you're going to PAX, read up there for further edification.

Whether or not you're going to PAX, join us for an impromptu SLOGPAX Nerd Meetup tonight at the Stumbling Monk, from 6 to 9 pm—for board and card games, and (of course) Belgian beer–drinking. And drink up, in thanks to Rob at Stumbling Monk for hosting us in his small space!

We'll have special guest stars Mary Traverse and her deck-slinging TSARY Magic gang, Rob Heinsoo (former lead designer for D&D and creator of the upcoming, STD-playtested 13th Age RPG) teaching his also-great Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards: Duel at Mt. Skullzfyre card game, and Devin Low (former head developer for Magic) showing off a development version of his upcoming Marvel deck-building game Legendary.

Man, that sounds like fun. Why don't we do this sort of thing more often?

Also, importantly: the public preview of Gamma Ray Games' excitedly anticipated Gamma Lounge on Pine is also tonight, from 6 to 10—so let's head there after Stumbling Monk, or earlier if things started getting crowded. (Thanks for the tip, Enigma! And thanks to Gamma Ray for being awesome and selling us a long overdue copy of Fiasco.)

The Stranger Testing Department is Rob Lightner and Paul Hughes.
