Trust us. If it weren't for boingboing.net, LAist probably would have lived through this whole entire year without realizing that it was Dungeon & Dragons' 30th Anniversary.

Fortunately for us we were able to locate our old Dungeon Master's Guide and those haphazardly-painted miniature wizard figures in preparation of September's Strategicon Gaming Conference, taking place during Labor Day Weekend (Sept 3rd–6th) at the Westin Hotel (Los Angeles Airport). Touted as the "best four days of gaming," Strategicon offers up non-stop interactive-entertainment in the studies of board/card game tournaments and—most importantly—role-playing games like Dungeons & Dragons.

Whether you're interested in learning how to play D&D (you're about 30 years behind the trend, buddy) or want to challenge others in your favorite pasttime (and enjoy the majesty that is Century Boulevard via LAX), Strategicon could be the best way to spend your Labor Day Weekend. And at $35.00 for a whole-weekend pass, you'll still have enough gold-coinage left to pick up that silver thirty-two sided die you always had your eye on.
