Spring Metacon 2018

Hey nerds!

It's that time of year again! Spring Metacon will be taking place on the 10th and 11th of February this year.

For those who either weren't around or weren't paying attention last semester, Metacon is the Metagamers' biannual, weekend long convention. Aside from the usual game night shenanigans, club members will be hosting one-shots to introduce people to new systems as well as to just have some fun. There will be pizza, soda, and baked goods for cheap to fuel these gaming adventures. For more information, please see the forum post here . We hope to see you all there!


A Metagamers Halloween

Greetings ghosts and ghouls.

It is finally properly fall and our annual Halloween festivities are fast approaching! To get into the season, we'll be taking a trip to Curtis Orchard this coming weekend (Saturday the 21st  Sunday the 22nd). We'll be picking pumpkins and likely getting some fall related sweets, as well as just having fun around the orchard. We'll be organizing transportation for people, so if you're interested please go the the forum post here for more info!

We will also, of course, be having a proper Halloween celebration, complete with costumes, candy, and pumpkin carving. Our Halloween game night takes place on October 28th in the english building atrium, starting at 6pm. Please look here for details!

I hope you're all enjoying the fall weather, and I wish you a happy Halloween!

Hey team,

A lot of you have been registering for accounts on the site, which is great! We'd love to see you on the new members forum.

They really help us out and also I get a laugh.

I've been trying to approve all acounts within a day or less, and as of today have approved or rejected all of the new accounts. After we approve your account, you will get an email from the site that will prompt you to log in and set your password. If it's been a couple days since you registered and you haven't gotten that email, check your spam folder. A lot of our site's email gets sent to spam inboxes.

Spring Metacon!

Hey team,

We're happy to announce that 2017's Spring Metacon will take place February 25 and 26 in the English Building!

Metacon is a weekend-long gaming convention that includes board games and tabletop roleplaying games. We camp out in the English Building atrium and play all weekend, fueled by pizza and the club bake sale. Club members bring their board games to share, and some host one-shot roleplaying games to introduce new players to new systems, or to just have a good time.

First Meetings Info

Welcome Illini Roleplaying Network members, both returning and new! We have a few events coming up, such as the ice cream social and our regular meetings.

On Wednesday, August 24th, we have an ice cream social to kick off the club meetings from 7-9pm in the English building atrium (downstairs in the large open area). We'll have free ice cream, and will be playing board games and organizing tabletop games for the semester.

Our normal meetings will begin on Saturday, August 27th, starting at 7pm in the English building atrium, and continuing each week.
