Welcome to the SWA Web Site

The Schenectady Wargamers Association, Inc. (SWA) is an Adventure Gaming club serving the Capital District area (Albany, Schenectady, Troy, Saratoga) of upstate New York since 1974. We support all forms of adventure gaming: Role Play * Board Games * Miniatures * Card Games (Collectible and otherwise) * Computer Games * Live-Action / Interactive Literature * and whatever else you've got. We sponsor a three-day convention every year, Council of Five Nations, usually early October or late September. We also sponsor a one-day Game-a-thon every month. Even if you're not local, we've got news and content representing what's going on with the Adventure Gaming hobby all around the Northeastern United States. Welcome to our web site! Feel free to stay and browse around for awhile. If you have any questions, please contact us and ask.

In Memoriam - Mike Rogozinski

We are very sorry to announce that the SWA has lost another one of it's Planning Team Officers, Michael L. Rogozinski.

Mike
Rogozinski - RIPMike was involved with the SWA for many years, both as a GM and Council volunteer.  Many of you, especially you war gamers, have probably shared a gaming table with him.  Here's a photo of him at a recent Council playing Twilight Struggle (he's the on one the left in the orange Staff shirt).

You can read Mike's full obituary here:  http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/dailygazette/obituary.aspx?page=lifestory&pid=186696652

The Memorial Mass will be this Thursday, September 21st
10:00 AM, at St Gabriel's Church
3040 Hamburg Street, Schenectady NY.

Mike was only 54 years old.  This is two SWA members in their 50s that we've lost in the past year.

Please take care of yourselves.


Council Registration is now OPEN!

We are pleased to announce the lineup of events for this year’s very special 40th edition of the Council of Five Nations We have almost 250 events lined up, full of gaming goodness for the weekend of Friday, September 29 to Sunday, October 1st. As always, click on this link for the latest in Council news.

As a special bonus, all attendees to this year’s council will receive a special present from the SWA as a thank you for your support over the years. We do like keeping secrets, but we can tell you that it is related to our Ruby Anniversary as a convention. We would also like to mention that there are some links on our website that you have grown accustomed to that aren’t present at this moment. We plan on having them up in the near future, so we ask for your patience as we get the worker bees motivated in the background.

We are looking forward to hosting you soon. The SWA Team
