How do I get more information? Squirrels playing instruments

Simple: Several ways...

On the Web: Check out the Running GAGG schedule.

On campus: Email the Running GAGG account (, or better yet come to a GAGG meeting on Wednesday nights at 8pm in the Union.

Off Campus: Email the Running GAGG account (, request a registration packet, and include a street address so we can send the literature out to you or if you send us a postcard with your address on it and request info we'll get it right out to you.

Any of the above methods will place you on the Convention mailing list (if you wish) so you will receive up-to-date information on any additional sessions we intend to run, or any other important developments.

So what's a "Con" anyway?

By now you've probably heard the term "con" or "convention" tossed about pretty casually with regards to RunningGAGG...but you may be unsure of what a gaming convention actually is.

RunningGAGG is a gaming convention. In short, we take over the entire College Union (and parts of Sturges) and play games. What do we mean by this? Well, you start by registering at the convention (or, preferably, pre-registering online). This allows you to reserve spots (in the case of pre-registering) or just get into the convention (in the case of registering on-site). After this, you begin attending what we call "events" which we mean games (or watching anime...if you're into that sort of thing). This can be anything from an role-playing game to a board-game to a collectible card game (for more information on the type of events RunningGAGG offers, check here or here).

I Still Don't Get It!

Ever wondered what we've called previous conventions? Curious about what on earth goes on in the heads of those who put this convention together? Well, you've come to the right place. This is a repository for all knowledge past, present and future that we think you just might not get. If have a question that isn't answered here, send us an email.
