Malted Meeple – which is named after malts (the alcoholic and non-alcoholic kind) and the little meeple from Carcassonne – is a brand new gaming location.  It’s a gaming café, and it just opened in March.

It is a beautiful place.  They serve beverages of all sorts, and have plenty of comfortable room for gaming.  I met with one of the head meeple in charge – Karington – and he is very interested in getting some Pathfinder Society gaming going there on Monday nights.

I know that that conflicts with Underhill’s schedule, and Lee has been very good to us, and so I don’t want take anything away from Lee.  So, I figure that we can grow the player base overall, and share players between locations.

It’s on Darrow Road in Hudson.  So if Underhill’s is close to you, then so is Malted Meeple.

It’s a gaming café, so it’s $5 per person, per night.  There are all sorts of benefits to GMing there, too.  Karington has all the information on that, but it is highly beneficial to GM at Malted Meeple.  He needs GMs for Pathfinder Society, and he rewards them well.

I am still not available on evenings, so I am putting a call out to the community.  It takes a village.  We want to get some Pathfinder Society going at Malted Meeple on Monday nights.  The first scheduled session will be Monday, July 13th.  The times are the same:  between 6 and 10 PM.

Who can bring a friend, or relative, or anyone who has shown interest in Pathfinder Society – but just needed a nudge?  This is the perfect opportunity.

Hey Everyone!

In a recent meeting with Michael McNerney, it was decided that Cleveland would come over to Ohio PFS and become part of the fold!

If it gets a little rowdy, I apologize ahead of time.  We sometimes don’t know our “indoor voices”.  : )

Anyway, welcome to all the Cleveland PFS folks!


The theme of this year’s AnCon is “Superheroes”. So expect to see a lot of superhero themed stuff going on.

For those who have never attended AnCon before. It stands for “Another Game Convention”. It’s been going on for several years. It’s a local game convention in Cleveland that happens every Spring, and the key focus is on all things gaming. From competitions, to tournaments, to independent and new games, to vendors – it’s the place to be if you want to be indulged in gaming. I’m the one who is in charge of organizing the Pathfinder Society portion of the convention.

For those who have been to AnCon before, you know how much of a blast it is.

Here are the basics:

When: May 15th, 16th, and 17th. That’s a Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Where: Clarion Inn Hudson, 6625 Dean Memorial Parkway, Hudson, OH 44236.

If you plan on getting a room there, they have a special AnCon special just for us. A reduced room rate, and two free breakfast buffet coupons each day per room. But, you have to call to get it. The phone number is 330-653-9191.

The hotel is currently (still) undergoing an extensive renovation, so just be prepared for that.

So, how do you get involved? Well, if you want to attend, you have to buy a player badge. Tickets to attend each table are extra. Go here and click on “Register Now!” It will redirect you to the site where you buy the badges and tickets. You can also buy at the door, but as you see from the published rates, there is an economic benefit to pre-registering.
