Final Fantasy

This year’s Phoenix ConGames 2008 will definitely be filled with swordplay and sorcery. But with the recent passing of Dungeons & Dragons co-creator Gary Gygax, gaming geeks may be a bit more somber.

Or maybe not. Maybe the d20s will roll into Mesa Convention Center and really geek it up. There’s no question that there will plenty of things to do to pass the time, including board games, video games, an Old West-themed Texas Hold ‘Em tourney, and the Cardhalla, a sprawling city that will be built out of trading cards.

Proceeds will be donated to the Sunshine Acres Children’s Home.
