It has been my experience that some of the best events I have been to are run be certain specific gaming groups or organizations. I'm curious about your past great and not so great experiences. Here has been my experience -
- Baldman Games does a really good job of running their D&D events. Once in a while you can get a DM who isn't all that good, but most of the time they have been spectacular.
- The Novus Ordo Seclorum people are usually top notch. Their Cthulhu events are over the top.
- The Rogue Judges board game guys are good.
