upcoming Event

Something Different

Looking to enrich the tabletop RPG experience, Something Different is an invitation for GMs and Players to try something new and/or unusual, push the bounds and structures of their games, and to experiment with the established RPG form. While many games at Something Different will be traditional tabletop RPGs, the amazing GMs that run them are always pushing themselves to find new ways to enhance the RPG experience. Many GMs have the public premiere of new scenarios at our event. IN other words, they’re always delivering…something different.

Something Different will happen at the Cary House Hotel, in Placerville CA. The Cary House is a weird little gold-rush area hotel resting in a quaint downtown area. It’s also supposed to be haunted. Quirky small town shops and restaurants are within easy walking distance. This is our 8th year there. You can see photos from previous events below.

Something Different will start rolling on the evening of Friday, the 13th of December, 2019. Friday the 13th - in a haunted hotel - what could possibly go awry? It kicks off with a social event where old friends meet and catch up and great gamers meet for the first time. There is no gaming on Friday night. There are two game sessions on Saturday and two on Sunday, wrapping up at 1AM. Folks are invited to stay for breakfast on Monday - a long-standing tradition.

Historic Cary House Hotel


Historic Ambiance. Modern Amenities.
Where Every Guest Is Legendary.

Located in the heart of Northern California gold country on the way to Lake Tahoe, the Historic Cary House Hotel dates back to 1857. Join us at a calm and quiet sanctuary among the Sierra foothills and experience the "Jewel of Placerville."

The Cary House has hosted gaming events for our group since 2010. It’s a quaint gold rush era hotel that’s adorned with spectacular period pieces and antiques dating back to its early days. It’s got just the right weird vibe. The staff bends over backward to welcome us and help us put on a fun-filled weekend.


With a reputation for being haunted, the hotel has welcomed such luminaries as William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody, Charles E. “Black Bart” Bowles, Horace Greeley, John “Wheelbarrow Johnie” Studebaker, Mark Twain, Levi Strauss, President Ulysses S. Grant, Bette Davis, Elvis Presley, and more. Or has it? The hotel is awash in legends.

And now for something completely different.
