Sorcery Social Club is a gaming club focused on Sorcery. It started in the Baltimore, Maryland area and is growing from there.

One thing we love about the game of Sorcery is the art, and this event is our way to try and highlight that, while giving players of all levels of experience a fun and enjoyable time.

We hope that everyone who is interested in the game, the art or just the artists can come and enjoy that aspect of the event and maybe meet some new friends along the way!
