Duration: All weekend
Sign-up in Advance:

Search through the graves of Green Wood cemetery for a host of ersatz 'ancestors' to fill up your twisted family tree. In this game of exploration and story-weaving, the more black sheep you can discover among your forefathers the better. Compete on your own, or grab a friend or two to help you in your quest. Play at any point over the weekend, but don't forget to make an appearance at the Inaugural Geneology Conference where rival clans will battle it out to win the title of Green Wood's First Family.
