Game-a-Thon Schedule Not Ready Yet

The Schenectady Wargamers Association - Game-a-thon

If you're seeing this page, it's because we haven't yet set the schedule for this Game-a-thon.
We usually finalize things about a week prior to the day of the event.
Please check back later, and this page will be updated with full event descriptions.

We'd love your help with running games

We're always looking for good Game Masters to help us run events. GMs get the whole day free (run one game, play free the other session).

If you'd like to run a game at a future Game-a-thon, please click here to submit your event online. You can also email us at game-a-thon /at/ swa-gaming.org at your convenience (please replace the "/at/" with the typical "@" sign).


Game-a-thons are held at the Proctors Arts Complex, at 432 State Street, in downtown Schenectady. We'll usually be meeting in the Hearst Education Center, also called the Underground, which is the finished basement area of the old Carl Company. The primary entrance to this space is a staircase next to Proctors Box Office.

Session Fees

Show up and play one game session = $4.00
Show up and play both game sessions = $6.00
First time attendance at a Game-a-Thon is free.
GMs get in for free (even if you only GM in one session).
Full-time students get in for free.
For our purposes, "full-time students" are people in Kindergarten through college. Our intent here is to help allow younger games/"new blood" to participate at SWA events, and the gaming hobby in general. The student discount does not cover working adults who happen to be taking a Continuing Education class. Please help us fulfill the spirit and intent of this policy.
