From the explosive success of the latest edition of Dungeons and Dragons to a new wave of collaborative storytelling games, tabletop roleplaying is undergoing a worldwide renaissance. With a character sheet and a handful of dice, a small group of friends (or strangers) come together around a table to spin tales of adventure and intrigue in almost any genre of story.
In September, Brisbane roleplaying convention Go Play celebrates a decade of bringing new players to the table with an epic two days of free adventure at The Edge in South Brisbane. Take on the role of a courageous rodent defending their kingdom in Mouse Guard, join a pirate crew to face the dreaded Kraken in 7th Sea, solve high school mysteries in Bubblegumshoe, or go for old school dungeon delving in D&D and Pathfinder. Go Play features all this and more, including local game designers presenting their homebrewed game designs.
Go Play’s friendly Game Masters are ready to help out newcomers, so not knowing the rules won’t get in the way of fun.
With games for all ages and interests, Go Play is an inclusive and supportive space where everyone is welcome. Go Play’s Hearth Wardens watch over the day to ensure the convention’s code of conduct is adhered to and everyone feels safe.
With the wildly creative scope of games on offer every year, there’s bound to be a perfect game for experienced gamers and those looking to dip their toe in the pool of polyhedral dice.
Go Play is FREE at The Edge, State Library of Queensland from 9.00am to 5.30pm on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 September.
Registration is essential to reserve your spot at the table.
