We have several opportunities in the weeks leading up to Rocket City NerdCon to get you ready and hyped up for the geeky fun. We have a new activity at this year's convention--the Fate of Akalon: Tribes tabletop gaming tournament. Game designers from Foursight Games will do demos and participants will have a chance to play the game. There will also be an opportunity to win free passes to RCNC. Check out any of these great pre-events:
