Saturday Night Space Opera Expands Twin Cities Sci-Fi Gaming with a Mini Convention

When someone picks up a 12-sided die, the popular imagination generally links it with a Dungeon Master’s Guide and tales of swords and sorcery rather than spacesuits and starships, an image crystallized among the general public by Weezer, Stranger Things, Freaks and Geeks, and more. But science fiction has been a part of role-playing games since the 1970s with James M. Ward’s Metamorphosis Alpha, among other systems, and local group Saturday Night Space Opera has been providing a space...

You don’t have to be a geek, and it doesn’t have to be a date, for you to have fun at Geek Date Night, according to event host Rob Callahan. “If you’re honestly apprehensive about going because you don’t have a date, I’ll be your date,” he says. “But only until after the movie. After that, I’m going home to wash my hair.” Since leaving its old venue, Clubhouse Jäger, the popular Tuesday-night trivia series has moved to self-described geek...
