Snowcon is rolling into town this weekend, giving a different slant to family game night.Snowcon is the state’s premier gaming event.Game enthusiasts from all over the country are expected to show up at the Black Bear Inn in Orono.Rooms at the hotel are already sold out.Event Coordinator Gibran Graham says the event is for everyone, not just game enthusiasts.Folks of all ages are encouraged to take part.Graham hopes it will bring people together and enhance their imaginations.”I think a lot of people misconstrue what a gamer is, there’s sort of an image in people’s minds that it’s only someone that plays Dungeons and Dragons or Magic the Gathering but it’s not true, gaming comes in all different shapes and sizes,” he said.There will be a snowcon kick off party tomorrow at the black bear pub in Orono.The gaming begins in earnest Saturday and Sunday.Tickets are 40 dollars.For more information, visit the website,
