In addition, John will be speaking on several panels about homebrew games, so if you want to learn more about homebrew development and all that entails, you don't want to miss these talks. The Multi City Multi Con takes place this weekend, October 29-31 at the Farm Bureau Expo Center in Lebanon, Tennessee.
