The first-ever SDHistCon East will be held at the Naval War College Museum in Newport, RI from August 18-20, 2023. This will be a one of a kind opportunity to play games in a museum dedicated to naval history, all while enjoying behind the scenes access to the DoD's flagship for professional wargaming. Gaming begins Friday night and will continue through Sunday. Throughout the weekend you'll have the chance to tour the historic game rooms where the College's famous graduates like Ernest J. King and Chester Nimitz played Plan Orange scenarios to prepare for the coming war with Japan. Faculty from the Wargaming Department will be on hand to give presentations on the history of NWC wargaming and show some of the spaces used for professional gaming today. And for Revolutionary War fans, there will also be optional tours to the nearby Battle of Rhode Island sites in and around Newport.

It's going to be an awesome weekend, hope you can joins us!
