AVL Scarefest is a three-day, horror-themed tabletop gaming convention in the ancient mountains of North Carolina around Halloween. You can expect to find excellent offerings such as Call of Cthulhu, D&D, Pathfinder, Starfinder, Ghostbusters, Dread, Fiasco, Artemis, X-Wing, and many, many more. The full schedule of last year's AVL Scarefest can be viewed on Warhorn here: https://warhorn.net/events/asheville-scarefest
Other highlights to whet your appetite include shelves and shelves of board games (yes, it's actually possible there are games you've never played before!), on-site lodging and meals (so you never have to leave...), a Yeti, so many prizes they had to invent new games just to give them away, the infamous evening parties after gaming on Friday and Saturday nights at an old stone lodge house that is definitely haunted, incredibly friendly players, and probably clowns. Also, some of the most entertaining newsletters around.
2019 dates coming soon!
