My tournament travel scene is sort of like the Bermuda Triangle. I want to hit three big events, and the rest of my life disappears in between. Two of the big ones that I have decided to lock myself into are The Mechanicon and The Nova Open. Both are outstanding events put on by good people and most importantly, within driving distance. So what event finishes off the triangle? Well, I would like to say Adepticon, but I have never been there! I'm not saying it is not awesome, but until I have gone, I have to file it under "I'm Trying". The boys over at BOLS have become friends of mine. I went to Bolscon two summers ago and was unable to go again this past summer. But I definitely plan on going again this year! What is keeping me back? Well, it is not an easy decision. I would love to see Larry, Jwolf, Goatboy and the guys again, drink some beers and enjoy another weekend of good gaming. But that damned Throne of Skulls had to pop up this year. Plus I intend on going to Gamesday in Chicago. Add to that the Jawababy and my quest to buy a home to raise him in... and Wargamescon does not seem like a possibility. I should know more in a few weeks after I have filed all the necessary paper work to start the process.
Should YOU go to Wargamescon? I have to say that if it was driving distance, I would be there hands down. I had such a great time last time that my expectations for what a tournament should be were set almost unreasonably high. It was that good. If you want to experience a top notch event, get there.
Hope to see you guys in Austin!
