I just heard about the very cool event going on here in Austin, Texas.
From their site:
Give to Game is a board gaming event in Austin, Texas, whose goal is to collect food and raise funds for the Capital Area Food Bank of Texas. Come join us for a day of gaming and a chance to win some great prizes!
Playing board games for charity! That's awesome!
That weekend is the Sherewood Renassaince Festival Jousting Tournament (http://sherwoodforestfaire.com/jousting-tournament/) so I won't be able to make it to Give to Game, but now that I know about it I'll defintely go next year!
