Celebrating its 14th year, GameStorm is returning to the Vancouver Hilton on March 22 through the 25th to celebrate everything gaming including board games, role playing, console gaming, LARP, and children’s games. This annual convention is one of the biggest gaming events in the Pacific Northwest and is sponsored by the Oregon Science Fiction Conventions, Inc.
GameStorm provides four days of non-stop gaming of all kinds. From card and dice games to tabletop role playing, from video and LAN gaming to live action role playing, you will never be wanting for a game.
In addition to gaming, there will be workshops, a swap meet, a miniatures painting contest, and a game lab, where game creators can test their prototype to the general public. Honored guests this year include Andrew Hackard and Sam Mitschke from Steve Jackson Games, as well as Jason Bulmahn from Paizo Games. These major players in the gaming community will lead panel discussions and provide demonstrations.
Additional entertainment includes the screening of Going Cardboard, a feature-length documentary on game designers, publishers, and their fans. Following the film ther will be a Q&A with the filmmaker. On Saturday night the Doubleclicks, a local musical duo, will perform their original pieces on geek life and gaming.
