It has almost been a year since Gary Jakubowski, a good friend, passed away. At work today, we talked about getting together with the bankers to play some games, and I thought that maybe we should organize something a bit more formal.

JakuCon is my proposal. A day of board games and music inspired by the great man. Here are my initial thoughts:

  1. Absolutely no 'Carcassonne' will be played during the day - Gary hated that game
  2. Music played will all be inspired by Gary; Warren Zevon, Nick Cave, Tom Waits, The Pogues, Bob Dylan, The Kinks, The get the picture
  3. Ask a co-worker to sketch something that we can use for t-shirts
  4. Alhambra is a must
