If I Ran the Zoo ... Con

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. A PC version of the game was to have been produced by SJA in Austin, Texas; it has not been made to date.
