We popped the banner (only took one) up at the end of the table that was used for Brief Border Wars, Tank on Tank, and Conquest & Consequence

There was no real "booth" anywhere b/c the War Room was just a whole bunch of tables laid out for games

I hope not; I'm underqualified to do so

Can someone give me the laydown on how many PAX attend this event? Are there vendors there?  (you can probably tell where I'm headed with this...)

A couple hundred folks, so btw 350-550 or so

Smaller vendor hall and mostly retailers, with 2-3 smaller publishers (not unlike yourself!) that have a smaller product line and just want to get stuff in front of people and I can't imagine it'd cost all that much to get a table in there

BGF's big advantage over a lot of other smaller cons is having a wargame-specific space & program where you have a concentration of tabletop wargamers that gives you a more predictable wargaming audience
