This is a call for miniature events for Metro Detroit Gamers annual winter convention: Wintercon 2019. Response needed quickly if possible. Thanks!

Date: Saturday, March 9th, 2019.

Location: The Oakland Center, Oakland University (Banquet Rooms!)

Time Slots: Convention hours are from 9:00AM until 11PM. Doors will open at 8AM and you MUST be cleaned up and out of the building by11PM. I will be flexible with the start/end times, but I would like the convention to have 3 time major slots 9AM – 1:30PM, 2PM 6:30PM and 7PM – 11PM. WE MUST BE OUT OF THE HALL BY 11PM. I will gladly stagger a couple of games each session and let some run longer on a FIRST COME basis. I plan on having 6-7 games per slot going. We will have approximately 6-7 game stations of 3 tables each with a total gaming area of 7.5 feet by 8 feet for each game plus a floor area for naval engagements. Let me know if you need more or less space.

I am looking for any type of game you want to run. I will keep a running tab of game genre/period and let you know if your submission is one of many similar ones so you can reconsider running another game, but I will NEVER refuse your game based solely on this criterion. This convention is primarily a place for you to show off your minis and terrain in a mixed genre convention and to run your battles the way YOU want them to be run! My only request is that you try to have a minimum of 6 players and, unless you arrange a longer time slot than mentioned above, you try to finish and clean up at least a half hour before the next event is to start. Note also that the evening session will only have ~ 4 hours, but I will gladly arrange any night games to start a bit earlier if necessary if more time is needed. Also, let me know if you have any participant requirements (i.e. no kids, experience preferred, etc…)

If you are available and have a game that you want to run, please contact me ASAP at the following addresses or through our facebook group so I can schedule your game:


I will need the following information from you to list a game on the schedule:

Game Name:

Event Description:

Time slots desired:

Any special needs?

Thanks, and I hope to see you soon! The prime spaces fill up quickly, so get back to me as soon as you can to make sure you get the slot you want your game run it. If you cannot run a game, come on out and join us as a player. Miniature GM's always get in for free, by the way! You can run your game and play in others in the sessions you are off!

Also, PLEASE forward this to any friends you have that may want to run games for us. We are ALWAYS looking for GM's to fill our ranks and contribute the kind of great games that all of you have run in the past.
