News & Events
We had thought that the time when Tom and Dave would go gallivanting across the country from one convention to another running the infamous “Wham-a-thon” event was in their pasts. However, there will still be occasion that one or the other (maybe even both) will be attending some public gatherings and would love for you to stop and say Hi or play a game. Here’s a few that we know about already.
Tom Wham Will Appear as a Special Guest at Phoenix Con – Appleton
Tom and Dave will be at Phoenix Con again this year. They will be running both scheduled / ticketed events as well as the Wham-a-thon! In years past, the duo would travel to numerous conventions throughout the midwest to run the Wham-a-thon. It was basically one mega session of Tom Wham games back-to-back every hour while the convention was open. As the two age, they’re not quite up to that schedule — now it will be from about 10am to 5pm each day of the convention. Still, that allows for loads of opportunities to sit and play one of the many Tom Wham games brought to the con. They’ll be sure to bring many of the favorites – new and old. Details will be updated here as the become available.
You will need to be an attendee of the convention to be able to play at any of these events. Go to Phoenix Con’s website at PhoenixGameCon.com for all the details of attending and the list of guests and exhibitors. Or go straight to their Tabletop.Events site to buy badges and tickets HERE.

Tom Wham Will Appear as Guest of Honor at Gary Con XVI
Tom has once again been asked to be a Guest of Honor and join the throng that make their way to Lake Geneva, WI in March each year to Celebrate a Life Well Played – that of E. Gary Gygax, co-creator of Dungeon’s & Dragons and founder of Tactical Studies Rules (TSR). The exact dates for this 50TH ANNIVERSARY YEAR of D&D have not been announced yet. Tom is considered one of the “Old Guard” at this convention since he worked at TSR in the very early days. Gary Con awarded Tom the coveted E. Gary Gygax Lifetime Achievement Award in 2020 for his…well, achievements over his lifetime (duh). Check back here later to see what events Tom will be running.
