My friends Mike and Keenan were there and I made a few new friends and some possible future opponents. The con is mostly board games and card games but there were some miniatures as well. To the left is a photo of a nice D-day Flames of War game presented by the Kanawha Riflemen gaming club.
I did not play any miniatures games but did play several board games, Wasabi, a puzzle game for up to four players who compete to make different sushi items, very fun but made my head hurt with all of the possible combinations.
Primordial Soup, you are in control of a bunch of amoebas and watch them evolve, fun game but with not much replayability.
I picked up some old Wargames Illustrated magazines, I have been bitten by the Colonial Bug, (thanks Steve and Steve :))and spoke with some great people. I ran an American Civil War game a couple of years ago and am planning to run a Seven Years War game next year.
I have included a few pictures of the con, all housed in one room. If you are ever in West Virginia in October I would definitely suggest you stop by.
I ran into some old friends as well Gary, from the hobby store Danzig Corridor located in Ashland, Kentucky and some gaming friends from the old Huntington Store.
Here is a link to the official web-site.
http://www.charcon.org/ I am sure you can find out much more information there.
I have been painting a little and hope to get some pictures of Cavenderi Regiment Christy up soon.
On a personal note I have lost about 20 pounds and am thinking of starting a new blog about the first Mahdist War.
