Concentric Games Con: Sept 21-23 in the Barossa Valley, SA

Postby Trev » Fri Jul 20, 2012 10:35 am

Hey Melbourne gamers,

Ben from Adelaide (mr_lunch on BGG and the artist on Merchants and Marauders) is organising a gaming convention from Friday 21 September to the afternoon of Sunday 23 September in the Barossa Valley near Adelaide ... and next door to great wineries.

http://con-centric.com.au

CONCENTRIC OVERVIEW

Join us for a weekend of social board gaming set in South Australia's Barossa Valley wine region. ConCentric will take place from the evening of Friday 21 September to the afternoon of Sunday 23 September 2012. Help us to make it an annual fixture on the Australian game convention calendar!

Our goal is to focus on friendly, social gaming at a dedicated location. With everyone staying at the same motel, we maximise our play time! The venue we will be staying at is the Barossa Valley Junction Motel. Those of you who are enthusiastic about train games will appreciate why we've chosen this place – the rooms are all converted railway carriages. Not that keen on 18xx? Have no fear, all tabletop gaming is welcome. The function room we will be using is large, has comfortable chairs and tables, and is well lit with skylights and big windows.

Although our hobby is very family friendly, those of us with non-gaming partners often travel solo to conventions. We've selected a venue in a very tourist-friendly region: the Barossa Valley. If your significant other isn't a gamer (yet), we hope they'll enjoy a day touring the local wineries, gourmet food outlets and art/craft stores. The weekend that we've selected falls within the school holidays for NSW, QLD, SA and VIC for those of you looking to kick off a family holiday.

I plan to go to Concentric with the family. I am hoping for serious brain burn at night after the children are asleep.

I understand Julian is going too.

Who else is going? Or considering going to Concentric?
