MARACON XXVII

Maracon is back this weekend!
The Oulu University Roleplaying Society CRYO ry organizes a gaming event which lasts for one whole weekend and is completely free of charge. This event, the Maracon, aims to promote gaming culture in Oulu and is held officially twice a year.

Maracon is held at the Kaijonharju youth centre (in Finnish: Kaijonharjun nuorisotalo), street address Kalevalantie 5. The event lasts from Friday 7th to Sunday 9th of October. In this event, you get to familiarize yourself with loads of (more or less) original and (always) wonderful roleplaying games, boardgames, miniature games, card games and strategy games in a comfortably warm indoor environment. It is, after all, the cold Finnish autumn outside.

In addition, this autumn Maracon has to offer the usual suspects: the Dice-rolling Championships and the miniature painting contest, the latter complete with two series for beginners and experts. The miniatures, paints and the paintbrushes are sponsored by Fantasiapelit Oulu for the event.

As if that weren't enough, we've also got a Warhammer 40,000 tournament on Saturday. Further details on this will be upcoming, check cryo.fi for updates!

Maracon is open to all aged 18 or over, but please note that the youth centre prohibits drinking of alcohol on the premises. See you at Maracon!

Events This Autumn (tentative)

CRYO holds weekly gaming nights at the Aulakahvila at the university on Tuesdays, from 4 p.m. onwards.
Both board and roleplaying games are played at the gaming nights. Examples of the board games played there include Battlestar Galactica, Arkham Horror, Bonanza, Fluxx, Once Upon a Time, Betrayal at the House on the Hill, Pandemic, Runebound, Blokus and Ubongo. For information on roleplaying games played at gaming nights, just show up and ask around as these games vary a lot depending on game masters. There is certainly potential for playing such games as the Dragon Age roleplaying game, any Cortex based games (including Battlestar Galactica), Pathfinder, D&D, Warhammer Fantasy, Cthulhu games, 3:16, and cyberpunk, although these games might take a couple of weeks to set up. You can also inquire about opportunities to play on the cryo e-mail list, or you can simply e-mail the board of CRYO (hallitus at cryo dot fi).

Every other Wednesday, on uneven weeks, CRYO people gather at Ravintola Caio from 6 p.m. onward for merrymaking. Conversation topics usually revolve around geeky things one way or another. :) Join us! We usually aim to have the cabinet reserved for us for these evenings of fun.

In addition to the aforementioned weekly and bimonthly events this autumn, here's the (tentative) schedule for CRYO's events this autumn and the beginning of winter. Changes are possible. Most of the weekly information is provided for our members and other interested through our e-mail lists cryo-ry (for members) and cryo (for all interested). Most of our events are open to anyone who is 18 years old or older (membership is required for excursions and the pikkujoulu party. Membership also entitles one for certain discounts at the local comic book / board game / roleplaying game store Fantasiapelit Oulu, near the train station).

Vulcanalia: CRYO ry had our own stand at Vulcanalia.

Recruitment for Games Event (or, "Pelirekry"): September 29th, at 6 p.m.. At pelirekry, game masters will be promoting their upcoming campaigns and recruiting players for them. Pelirekry will take place in the room SÄ126 at the university. From there, the evening will continue at Caio.

Autumn Maracon (or, "SyysMaracon"): Autumn Maracon will be held at Kaijonharju Youth Centre (Kaijonharjun nuorisotalo) from Friday to Sunday from October 7th till October 9th. The event will likely begin around 11 p.m. on Friday, and it will continue 24/7 until Sunday, around 10 p.m.. At SyysMaracon, many roleplaying games and board games will be played. Just show up and see the list of roleplaying games on the billiard board at the hall, and talk to people. Most gamers will speak English - after all, most of the gaming materials people come to contact with are written in English! Board games are not usually announced beforehand, so just join in when people are selecting what to play next. There will also be contests, which you may participate in if you are so inclined, such as a miniature painting contest (no need to bring your own miniatures nor paints/brushes!).

Discussion Night: Friday, November 4th at Koneen sauna at the university. Topic(s) for discussion will be released later on.

Syyskokous/pikkujoulu: Possibly on December 9th. The chairperson will later officially call the official autumn meeting of CRYO ry. After the meeting, a pre-Christmas party will commence at the same location.

TalviMaracon: A new arrival for CRYO, an experimental fourth Maracon (per year), Winter Maracon, is planned for January 2012.

Syksyn ensimmäinen Caio-ilta keskiviikkona 17.8.

Tervetuloa keskustelemaan ropeista, lautapeleistä ja muusta mukavasta Caioon keskiviikkona 17.8. kello 18 lähtien!

Viikottaiset peli-illat alkavat jälleen! (16.8. alkaen)

CRYO ry:n jo erittäin suosituiksi kasvaneet viikottaiset avoimet (ja ilmaiset!) peli-illat jatkuvat jälleen tänä syksynä. Pelaamme lauta- ja roolipelejä Aulakahvilassa kello 16 eteenpäin joka tiistai (ensimmäinen kerta 16.8.2011). Tervetuloa mukaan niin wanhat kuin uudetkin innokkaat!

Peli-illoissa on pelattu esimerkiksi Battlestar Galactica -lautapeliä, Betrayal at the House on the Hilliä, Arkham Horroria, Once Upon a Time -tarinankerrontapeliä, Runeboundia, Pandemiaa, Agricolaa, Bonanzaa, Fluxxia, Blokusta ja Ubongoa - eli pelejä laidasta laitaan.

Sääntöjä ei tarvitse tullessa osata, koska säännöt voidaan kerrata/opettaa tarvittaessa pelin alkaessa - ja näin usein tehdäänkin.

Paikalle voi saapua myös myöhemmin kuin kello neljältä, mutta mitä aikaisemmin saapuu, sitä helpommin pääsee pelaamaan toivomaansa peliä, kun pelit vasta etsivät pelaajiansa. Uusia pelejä toki aloitellaan illan aikana sitä mukaa kun vanhoja loppuu. Roolipelit yleensä alkavat hieman myöhemmin illalla. Niistä kannattaa kysellä paikallaolevilta tyypeiltä - he yleensä tietävät, kuka on toiminut missäkin pelissä pelinjohtajana aikaisemmin.

Vielä kerran tervetuloa viettämään aikaa pelien ihmeellisessä maailmassa hyvien tyyppien seurassa!

Foorumi

Foorumia on vähän siistitty niin keskustelualueiden lukumäärän kuin käyttäjänimienkin lukumäärän suhteen. Jos käyttäjänimesi on vahingossa deletoitu niin nykäise webmasteria hihasta peli-illassa tai ircissä (mistmirth), tai laita vaikka sähköpostia hallitukselle vaatien välitöntä toimintaa! ;)

KesäMaracon 10.6.-12.6.2011!

Luvassa rentoa pelailua, tule mukaan!

Tapahtuma on avoin kaikille 18 vuotta täyttäneille ja päihteetön.
