2012 – The Inaugural Year

2012 was the inaugural Great Falls Gaming Rendezvous, which was hosted by TownHouse Inns on October 5-7th. The event had attendance of over 160 guests who came for open gaming, discussion panels, a costume contest, RPG Writers Workshop, and our Iron GM™ Local tournament.

Gaming and Discussion Panels

We were very pleased to host two full days of discussion panels on gaming topics varying from getting started in the gaming business to our favorite gaming styles and the house rules we use in our games.  The support and attendance was fantastic for these.  Great Falls Gaming Rendezvous would like to thank all the panelists for theirs time and insight about gaming and the RPG industry.

Sunday was the big day for our Iron GM™ Local tournament.  The tournament featured 5 gamemasters and 20 players.  Prize necklaces were given to those who rolled a critical success and a neon pink dunce cap was passed around to the player or GM with the most recent botch roll.  Additional prizes were given to the player who had the most critical success rolls as well as the player with the most botches.   Fun was had by all!  Check out the highlights in the video below.
