Stuffed COWS Game Day 2018!

Why fight the crowds at the store when you can fight monsters and aliens instead? Avoid the Black Friday mayhem and join us for some fantasy mayhem at Stuffed COWS Game Day on November 23 – 25 in SRC 2000! In addition to a number of D&D and Pathfinder games (run by Cold Iron Productions–go to for more information and to pre-register), we’ll have a variety of board and video games, as well as the ever-expanding Uber-Epic Munchkin Tournament! All events are FREE (Cold Iron events have registration fees–see website).

We also need members to run games!  If you’re up for doing so, just contact me to let me know what you want to run and when so we can promote it!
