FaTDoG is the annual Friday After Thanksgiving Day of Gaming now held at the Radisson Hotel in Happaugue, NY It started over 16 years ago in my basement when I found myself all alone on the Friday after Thanksgiving while my wife and daughters battled the inane shoppers hunting for Christmas gift deals. What does a gamer do when he has no responsibilities for the day? He games of course!!
So I invited 3 friends over to game and we gamed until midnight upon which my weary shoppers returned. The following year the story was repeated only I invited 6 friends over…and then 10 and then 14….. When we breached 26 gamers in subsequent years. I knew I had to move FaTDoG to a bigger venue. We moved to a local hotel and conference center and as word spread, FaTDoG grew from a small puppy to a mature DoG!
