This is the place to find schedules and available options for the Utter Chaos Winter-een-mas Open House Super Melee Extravaganza 3D Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo X-treme (tm).


Utter Chaos will be hosting a Winter-een-mas open house party Jan 26-28. Hooray! For those who aren't complete geeks, Winter-een-mas is a week-long holiday celebrating the fine world of gaming. This will be the fourth year that Winter-een-mas has been in existence, and our second Weemas party. (

Please feel free to drop in any time -- but keep in mind that during the earlier hours of morning (e.g. 4-9 or so) there may not be anyone awake to let you in. There will be as many different types of games as we can scrape together (we've got two Wiis and pretty much every other non-next-gen system you can think of (Sorry, no PS3 or XBox360. Though, if you have one, you're welcome to bring it and we'll find someplace to hook it up)), and also snacks and such. There will be periodic food orders from local restaurants, and we should be able to provide crash space for people who wish to stay overnight (Bringing a sleeping bag will make this easier).

Some games will be generally available, and some are scheduled. To see the scheduled activities, go to The schedule may be updated as Winter-een-mas gets closer. If you would like to GM a one-shot or organize any kind of schedule gaming activity, please reply to this email and give a quick description of what you would like to do and when. We'll post it on the schedule page.

If you would like to play any game (or have any RP books that may come in handy) feel free to bring whatever you would like. We strongly suggest putting your name on it.

If you have a Wiimote, feel free to bring it. DEFINITELY put some sort of label on it. Ours will be distinguished by various beads and such on the strap, etc. Same on your DS; many folks have 'em, many look the same.

Scheduled Games

Superhero Parody Oneshot

Sunday at 2 PM. TriStat dX Link to the pdf (Other details undecided)

This is a parody of Superhero stuff. The Super Justice Squad is dedicated to truth, justice, and um...the way of stuff. But the founding members are growing tired of being managers. Maybe it's time for a vacation. Can the world relax this week long enough for our heroes to calm down?

Any references to other comics is purely coincidental. Clearly you're hallucinating.

Minstrels in Blue

Wintereenmas in Utter Chaos, Saturday, 8pm.

The Bards Solidus are NOT on vacation. They have been issued a very important undercover mission. With lots of Bluff, Disguise, and Diplomacy, they plan to cause chaos, mayhem, tomfoolery, and whatever else they need to complete their mission.

The BS squad will be run in D&D 3.5. I have a set of characters mostly written up, but if you're dying to create something, think 4th level overall, first must be bard, and Bluff and Disguise (considered in class) must be maxed.
