The SWA is an Adventure Gaming club serving the Capital District of Upstate New York (Albany, Schenectady, Troy, Saratoga) since 1974. We sponsor monthly Game-a-thon game days and a 3-day convention, Council of Five Nations, early October or late September every year.
Submit an event for an upcoming Game-a-thon
Please list the maximum number of players the game can take. If you want to play in the game as well as GMing, don't decrease the maximum. We'll take care of filling your name in on the first line of the sign-in sheet.
Many of us got started in adventure gaming before we were old enough to drive and we'd like our Game-a-thons to welcome families and kids. But we also know that the thematic content or complexity of some games makes them unsuitable for young players. To allow attendees and parents to make an informed decision on participation in an event, every event must be assigned one of the following Maturity Ratings:
- Child rating is for children age 6 - 9 with adult supervision
- E10+ rating is for players 10 and up in age (This is the default rating)
- Teen rating is for players 14 and up in age
- Mature rating is for players 18 and up in age.
Our hope is that all GMs will welcome players of ages 10 and above, as a standard. We understand that the nature of some games, or the comfort level of some GMs, prevents this. These GMs should set the Maturity Rating of their game as appropriate.
