I don’t know if any of you are familiar with DaveCon, an annual gaming convention in Okemos, MI (http://www.lansingboardgamers.com/DaveCon). DaveCon is run by a member of Lansing Boardgamers, and is essentially a Euro-only convention that runs September 6 and 7 this year.I have been working on getting some heavier games into the convention, including some cross-over Eurogames/wargames. This year I am running three:Cuba LibreBios: MegafaunaTerra Incognita (my prototype New World exploration game). After mentioning to friends that I was running these games, the gamer grapevine revealed a few wargamers who expressed an interest in coming out to Okemos to play one or more of those games. It occurred to me that DaveCon might be a good venue to bring some Michigan Wargamers together and establish ourselves as a community. (Note that I am not affiliated with running DaveCon — but there is always plenty of space and it is fairly conveniently located for most of us in the state).So I thought I would reach out to potential wargamers (and near-wargamers) on Consimworld and Boardgamegeek to see if anyone is interested in coming to the con, even if only for a day.To that end, I have created a Google Group (https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/wargaming-at-davecon) to allow people to look for opponents for games they want to get to the table. I am pretty eclectic in my tastes myself, so if there is something you want to play, chances are I will play it with you (subject to my existing commitments).I think good games for this venue are multiplayer games (COIN games, for example), and shorter card-driven games (such as Twilight Struggle), but the con runs the whole weekend so there’s no reason people couldn’t try something even meatier. I also am hoping that this allow us to find more opponents around the state. Who knows — maybe next year we can convince Dave to make wargames an official part of the DaveCon schedule!Cheers,Scott
