Carnage has been alerted that rooms in the main Killington Grand building are nearly all booked up for the weekend of Carnage XX. The Killington resort still has many more properties available on the mountain. When talking to the booking agent for availability during Carnage weekend, be sure to ask them about condominium options. These units are a short walk down the road from the Grand building and offer private bedrooms and kitchens. Make a condo your home away from home for Carnage, and live it up in style!

And remember: when booking a room for Carnage, make sure to tell the booking agent you’re with the Carnage gaming convention and want to get the convention rate for your lodgings. See you on the mountain in November!

Carnage XX Wants You to Run Games

This November, Carnage celebrates twenty years of playing tabletop games in Vermont with a bang, but we can’t do it without your help! A tabletop game convention is only as good as the variety and quality of games that are on offer. At Carnage, all the games are run by volunteer GMs, people who step up to teach or moderate a game as a service to those who want to play. We can’t do it without all our GMs, and we’re grateful for each and every one of you!

To submit a game proposal, visit our GM Sign Up form and fill in the details of the game you’d like to run. After Carnage reviews your proposal, the appropriate field marshal will be in touch to discuss it further. Submissions must be received by July 31st, 2017 in order to be included in the Carnage convention book, which is the primary catalog of what’s scheduled to play at the convention. Once the convention book is assembled and the online registration system populated, sometime around late September, we’ll announce that pre-registration is open and invite conventioneers to sign up.

Traditionally, there is a theme set for Carnage each year. For those who want it, the theme gives some guidance to the role-playing or miniatures scenarios they write or the board games they select. In celebration of twenty years of Carnage, the theme for 2017 is officially “whatever.” Choose whatever theme you like for your games this year from Carnages past, from the Z-grade alien invaders of Carnage 9 from Outer Space to the simpler halcyon days of lounging by the lake at Camp Carnage. “Whatever” is entirely what you choose to make it, so get creative, and get those proposals in by July 31st!
