Texicon partners up BIG. Texicon is partnering up with Big Brothers Big Sisters to bring great
games to great people. If you are a Big bring your Little to the show! Entrance is free.
Texicon does it again. We felt that we needed to help more. So, we went out and found
Johnathan's Place. This is a shelter for abused children. We flung open our doors and asked if
they would like to join us on Saturday for a day filled with fun. These wonderful struggling kids
need a day where they can forget their troubles. We wanted to offer them one. So, let's all
welcome them and if you find yourself gaming with a kid on Saturday, remember.... Win at all
costs. Err... What I mean is, "make it a challenge for them, and win but be nice about it.
We once again opened up the doors to more children in need. This time we contacted
Buckner. Johnathan's Place recommended this organization. We reached out and they
were over joyed to join us for Texicon 2015. Please join us in welcoming Buckner's kids.
So, what does it mean to our regular attendees that we have all of these kids on Saturday. First, we have limited the
number of total children that we can help. After all, there is only so much space. So, don't worry. We have set aside
special tables for them. These tables will have more kid oriented games. The children can, if they wish, play other
games. We are also aware that todays kids are tomorrow's gamers. So, we felt this would be a great addition to Texicon.
We hope you do too.

|Special Event with Lester Smith on Saturday
|Event Title: Pitch that World!
Game Master: Special Guest Lester Smith
Table number: RP-1
Number of Players: 1-300
Event runs continuously from 10:00 a.m. to Noon.
GM Description: So... you've always wanted to have your world published and have millions of people host games in the world you designed. This is your chance
to do just that. First you'll have to go to the www.D6xD6.com website and download and read the core rules. Once you have a firm grasp on the rules you're
ready to get started. Grab your favorite snack, brew up a really hot cup of brownian motion juice, and write a world setting for D6xD6 in 2500 words (+/- 100
words). Bring that printed copy to Texicon and meet with game designer Lester Smith during this event and "Pitch That World!" If your world is chosen you'll be
contracted for publication. Just think, if you were a runner up you too may be contracted to have your world published. You will have five minutes or less to pitch
the world. Then you'll leave the printed copy with Lester to read over at his leisure. Make sure your printed copy has your contact information on it.
|What world will
I only happens once in a lifetime, the opportunity for a gamer to get his world published. The moons have aligned, the Druids have communed with nature, and
the ancient Atlantians have risen out of the sea! That time is now!
Join Texicon's Special Guest as he hosts "Pitch that World!". This special event allows you to sit with Lester and in five minutes or less pitch him your concept of
a world setting for D6xD6.
Here's the information on the event:
Folks, this is a once in a lifetime
opportunity to become that next

Pitch that World!
The Helping Horns program is designed to help gamers who
are in a financial bind or who are jobless or who are in need
of monetary assistance. They may have encountered some
difficulty in life that has given them a setback. Helping Horns
collects donations which are then given to a gamer in need.
How does the program work?
A GM requests his game to be a Helping Horns event. He
must be approved for his game to be given this status.
Texicon analyzes the GM and his game. If approved, he
then sets aside at least four seats that people have donate
money to a gamer in need to play in the game. There will
also be at least two seats that are free. This allows the
game to occur if no one wants to donate to play in the game.
The GM suggests a name of a gamer who is in need OR
Texicon looks for a gamer who is in need. The money is
then given to that gamer.
Kicking off this program, Frank Waugh is recreating the
complete battle of Waterloo. His event can hold eight
participants. He has opened four seats to Texicon
Attendees. This is a first come first served basis. So, grab
'em before they are gone.
The other four seats can only be filled by people who
participate in the Helping Horns program by donating money.
How does a person go about donating to this cause? Any person can donate money. Also,
any person may donate so he can grab one of the four Helping Horns seats.
Donation for each seat is $25. However, a person may donate more. If you would like to
donate more, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange it.
Please click this PayPal button to donate $25 to Helping Horns.
Also, send us an email to email@example.com to let us know
that you did and to get further instructions. We will email you to let you know your seat is
reserved in Frank Waugh's game and we will tell him.
