Mentioned in Dispatches Season 11 Ep 11 ~ Compass Expo & SDHISTCON

1 December 2023

The Autumn convention season has come, and (largely) gone1 and we’ve got some attendees of those conventions here to regale us with their adventures.

Don’t forget, you can always catch up with past episodes on the “podcast” tab of our site.

So let’s welcome in Ardwulf, Grant from Pushing Cardboard, and Tim from Catastrophe Games and talk about Compass Expo, SDHistCon, and the (then-upcoming) U-Con.  We discuss the games played, the ‘other’ events – panels/seminars, social gatherings, etc – pre-press or playtest games on tables, and what was for sale at the shows.  What did we like about the conventions?  How’d they compare to other conventions?  What are we looking forward to next?

Tell us about your recent convention experiences!  Which ones did you attend and what did you like (or not) about them?  What’s next on your convention calendar?  Discuss below, or in our forums!


Please gallop on over to the iTunes page for our podcast and give us a rating – whatever you think is fair!
Even after all these years, we still need a few reviews short of iTunes recommending us in their podcast engine, and every rating helps.  Thanks!

Thank you for visiting The Armchair Dragoons and mounting up with the Regiment of Strategy Gaming.
You can find our regiment’s social media on MastodonFacebook, Twitter, YouTube, and even Threads, if we could ever get an auto-post to it.
(We have an Instagram page and it’s really just a placeholder & redirect to our articles.)
You can support The Armchair Dragoons through our Patreon, also, and find us at a variety of conventions and other events.
Feel free to talk back to us either in our discussion forum, or in the comments below.

The Armchair Dragoons, they’re a hoot,
In wargaming, they’re absolute.
On their podcast so grand,
They conquer the land,
With dice rolls and strategy, they’re astute!
