Each year the Benevolent Adventurers’ Strategic Headquarters organization at The University of Toledo creates a paradise for gamers called BASHCon.

BASHConThe 2014 event will have a “Pulp Fiction” and “A Game Against Evil” theme for the type of storytelling that features excessive drama and action when it is held Friday through Sunday, Feb. 14-16, in the Student Union.

More than 1,000 people participate annually in one of the oldest and largest student-run events on campus. Attendees are able to partake in activities such as Magic: The Gathering, which is the most played collectable card game, as well as live-action role-playing, costume play contests, board games and more.

For the 29th year, BASHCon organizers also have added game developers who will bring their new products and games in progress for attendees to try out and discuss.

Campus Activities and Programming also will be at the event to give students the chance to play Wii in the Trimble Lounge and host a library of 300 games to play for $1 the entire weekend. The UT E-Sports Club will run League of Legends, one of the most popular video games.

An auction will allow participants to pick up games for less than retail price, and vendors will be at the event to sell games and supplies.

BASHCon will run from 5 p.m. to midnight Friday, Feb 14; from 9 a.m. to midnight Saturday, Feb 15; and from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday, Feb 16.

Admission is free for UT students, faculty and staff. It is $5 for a single day or $10 for the weekend for students of other universities with ID, and $10 for a single day or $15 for the weekend for the public.
