This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Cambridge MA Special Event
« on: March 26, 2008, 02:59:01 PM »
We're trying to start the ball rolling to help Pandemonium Books & Games to
raise funds and develop plans to pay the State Department of Revenue and
consolidate it's debt. Pandy, in case you've never been there, is at 4 Pleasant
Street in Cambridge Massachusetts Central Square (behind the 7-11 on Mass
Ave and across the street from Post Office).

There will be a Pot Luck Fund Raiser at the store on Saturday Night (the 29th
 - this week) from 7-11 pm. Folks who want to come and help out should
bring a shareable food item and be willing to donate $10 into the Pandemonium
Preservation Fund.

It will be a general meet n greet for folks, with board and card gaming, and
discussing of plans for future fund raising efforts and other events at the store.

Our main desire is to make sure that Pandemonium doesn't end up in the
situation that Toscanini's did earlier this year. Tyler has some ideas to avoid
this, through the help of the local fandom community that he has been serving
for the past 18 years.

The market for small independent retailers, especially book and game stores,
is not an easy one at this time. Quantum Books is shutting the Doors,
Mcintyre & Moore are having to move to another location for the second time
in recent memory, many others (like Games Workshop) are gone, or depend
upon Harvard University giving them reduced rents to stay in business.

Pandemonium doesn't have a University or a Corporation to help them when
times are tough. All it has is you the fans and customers to help keep it going.

So, please come, share food, chat, play games, shop, and join us in showing
our appreciation of Pandemonium and hope for it's continued future for years
to come. We can make a difference with a little combined effort.
There will be a variety of foods and drink to enjoy for your effort.
 
If you can't come but wish to donate, then send funds via Paypal to:
general@pandemoniumbooks.com and mark it for the Pandemonium Preservation Fund.

Thanks
