The old man had a brilliant idea

Originally uploaded by Avant Game.

WWII veteran and genius poker player Lionel "Lucky" Brown died a rich man, with some very playful ideas about the legacy he wanted to leave behind.

I'm honored to be a part of how his final wishes are carried out.

Besides, you know me. Can't help but get really excited about a benevolent mob of gamers playing together in an unexpected, public space.

So graveyard games, it is.

When was the last time you played games in a cemetery? When is the first time you play games in a cemetery?

Come play your respects:

October 15 San Francisco/Colma
October 22 Washington, D.C.
October 29 Kansas City
November 5 New York City
November 12 Atlanta
November 29 Los Angeles

You’re never too dead to play.

Hope to see you there.

I'll be at the DC event with a bunch of other people who you might be familiar with.

I'm really glad that you could help carry out Lucky's last wishes. :)

Play in Seattle! We've got the cemetary where Bruce Lee is buried. You know it would be good.

Hey weephun, thajinx and Jane! You know, you totally don't need me... you can organize your own Tombstone Hold 'Em game in a Boise or Seattle cemetery. That's what the rules [] are there for, so anyone can play, any cemetery many time! And if you do, I definitely want to hear about it ;)
