I coughed up my $60 registration fee.  I'm running one session of a Chaosium scenario for Rogue Cthulhu.  My wife might come up with me to visit buddies.

I decided that the drive is not worth it.  I'm going to fly this time, rent a car, and stay at a hotel out at the airport.

Damn, I would love to snag a seat at your session. I'll try to sign up as soon as I can.

Doing my best to line up the vacation days and Award Points/Miles to make the trip.  Do y'all have room for a part-timer volunteer GM ...  (as long as Larry is still hosting Harpoon/Command at Sea) and I get to hang for a while with the coolest wargamers I've met.

It would certainly be better if there were two people driving.  Sorry our schedules never meshed.  I certainly would have enjoyed the company :bigthumb:

True- he's got an extra $800 to buy games with, now doesn't he?

sorry I missed the last planning "phone call" … arriving a little earlier than normal (Tuesday afternoon) due to logistics considerations.  Departing Saturday night NLT about 9pm.  Will be looking to play events hosted by Larry Bond and Mark Walker … beyond that I think everything else is negotiable … I love volunteer GMing with the ADs … but still this is a primarily a gameplaying CON for me.

would love to host a double-blind WW2 naval (eg Battle of Santa Cruz) using SWWAS (hopefully AP will actually release their update to SOPAC (South Pacific) this year.)
...

happy to be here (there), proud to serve

Hey, all!  I'm headed to Origins this year and was wondering what sort of wargaming events will be run or how I might find people to play games with.  I'm interested in playing and learning anything, but wouldn't mind getting games of LnLT, COIN, or Triumph and Tragedy in.  How can I find other wargamers?  Would people recommend getting the board room pass or is that mainly targeted at the Euro crowd?

We've got a few errors with getting our events loaded on the Origins events grid right now, and I'm trying to sort it out, but once the event grid is open, there's an ability to search on "Armchair Dragoons presents..." and find our events that way.


There are other wargame events, but sometimes you have to search by game title


As far as open gaming goes, we have some in our area, and there's a cadre of wargamers that'll set up in the Board Room, but there's also (usually) a thread or geek list on BGG (usually run by Bob Fix and yes that's his real name) that let's people post what they're bringing and what they're hoping to find a game of


We're planning on LNLT, A Distant Plain, and others at our area.

What's an "Origins?" Is that like a front page?
