A quote from JR Honneycut
"We Play Games and Help People
that's our motto and our simple
mission. Every month we host an event
called “Nerd Night”, where we play
board and card games to raise money
for local charities. Everyone's invited -

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.
