Pensacon is pleased to welcome The Cheese Grinder (TCG) RPG Survival Tournament!  The Cheese Grinder has been one of the featured gaming events at DragonCon for the past 12 years.  It now comes to the 2016  Pensacon with the same intense, exciting and action packed gaming event.

Players create their biggest, cheesiest, baddest, 11th level Pathfinder character, using TCG rule set, and are thrown into encounters to see how long they can survive.

It is a round robin style tournament. Six players sit down and play begins.  When one player’s character is killed, the next player takes that person's seat at the table and play continues. The party’s characters will change often. One minute a balanced party, the next all bards (but who takes a bard to The Cheese Grinder)?  You may last 2 hours, or you may only last 10 minutes.  The Cheese Grinder starts on Friday and keeps on for 48 hours straight!  Want something to do at 3am, come and roll dice with us!

The six top ranked players will be chosen for the finals to fight it out in an arena of death to see who will be crowned the King of Cheese.

Prepare yourself to fight creatures of legend.  Stumble through traps of true brutality.  Wrack your brain on puzzles, riddles and questions that would try any hero young and old.

Pregens are available for quick play!

The founder of Pensacola Roleplaying Association states, “In my 15 years of gaming, there has been no game session that even comes close to the immense excitement, enjoyment, or intensity of The Cheese Grinder.  What you experience at this tournament are encounters you would never see in a normal game session which makes it all the more surprising and fun. It’s a must attend event.”
