Unless you are new to Funkhouser, you know that I like to push the pro-tabletop gaming agenda here on the site. In the fall, we put together a 24-hour gaming marathon for Extra Life, where we raised around $2000 for the Kentucky Children’s Hospital. However, that event would not have been a success without the help from a group of people who put on an annual gaming convention in Lexington called LEXICON. And great news, the actual Lexicon Tabletop Gaming Convention is this weekend, April 22-24 at the Clarion Hotel, right off exit 115 on I-64/I-75. Lexicon will be three days of board gaming, tournaments, cosplay, late night parties with West 6th Brewery and much, much more. I will be there all day on Saturday, in some sort of KSR gear, so be sure to come find me, or root me on it the King of Tokyo Tournament. I’ll also be tweeting from our @FunkhouserKSR twitter account.
Last night, I got to chat with one of the organizers of the convention, Josh Dunne, about what all we can expect from the convention this weekend and what Lexicon is all about. Check it out:
