Scrum Con is a tabletop gaming convention hosted by the Second Saturday Scrum Club in Silver Spring Maryland, just outside of Washington D.C.
With its relaxed atmosphere and wide range of genres, Scrum Con attracts gamers who enjoy its unique mix of RPGs and miniature wargames. Scrum Con features classic fantasy, pulp, horror and sci-fi games hosted by some of the hobby's founding members as well as new designers showcasing their latest efforts.
Buoyed by enthusiasm from the first Scrum Con, the convention for 2020 was moved to the Silver Spring Convention Center, a modern community center with plenty of room for this and future conventions. With attendance more than doubling the previous Scrum Con, the one day convention was a clear success. With the COVID pandemic reaching America's shores just a few weeks later, it certainly felt like the last bright spot in an otherwise dreadful year.
The Scrum Club's inaugural convention was hosted in a community meeting hall in Silver Spring, MD. With expectations of attracting a dozen non-club gamers, the convention boasted over a hundred attendees arriving for a full day of gaming. Despite the tight quarters and raucous air, the convention was a hit.
The Second Saturday Scrum Club lost a dear member within the last few months. Though gone, they'll not be forgotten.
