The Smofcon 3 Game

by Leslie Turek

This is a book of a "Reality Role-Playing Game." The players move through scenarios representing the Bidding, Planning, and At-Con phases of a World Science Fiction Convention. The game was first introduced and played at Smofcon 3 in Lowell, Massachusetts. In May 1987 MCFI turned over the production and distribution of the book to NESFA.

The second edition corrects many errors in the original game. Most of these errors were incorrect frame number references or missing point changes in various choices. A draft of this version was played at Disclave '87. There have been some minor formatting improvements, chiefly in the area of the save situation boxes. The end-of-scenario marks were added to improve clarity. ISBN 0-915368-37-4/ISBN: 0-915368-51-X.
