ACDC Jan 2023 Social BoxThe ACDC is done & dusted.  Participants have been sent their follow-up surveys to let us know how we did, and the livestream archive is posted.  The next one will be 17-19 January 2025.

We’ve asked folks who did not attend The ACDC to give us some feedback on why not.  For some it was the events offered; for others it was time zone challenges.  A lot of people have just said “already busy that weekend” but that might’ve just been covering up that even if they weren’t busy they wouldn’t’ve attended.  If you’re just not in wargaming-through-a-screen, we get it.  If you didn’t even hear about it ’til it was too late, we get it1.  If nothing seemed all that spectacular to you, we get that, too!

But drop us a line in the forums, or in the comments below, and let us know why you didn’t join us for The ACDC, and maybe we can help mitigate some of those issues in the future.

TN VfWAds for the reprint of Votes for Women seems to have run afoul of Facebook/Meta’s Stupidity Police™ as they’ve pulled all of Fort Circle’s advertising, claiming it’s a “sensitive topic”.  Since the dustup started, it’s now appearing in the wider gaming press.

We’ve lost a couple of longtime hobby gaming industry stalwarts this past week…

Jennell Jaquays passed away, and there aren’t many people who were in the hobby as long as she was, going back to the early ’70s with tabletop designs for Judges Guild, and video game art & design for Coleco, ID, and more.

Brian Ansell, founder of Citadel minis and co-creator of Warhammer, passed away 2 weeks ago
