Australian Games Expo 2007 - June 9,10 Albury

Post by Fraser » Mon Feb 19, 2007 11:34 am

I've forwarded the email from the Expo to the Gamers@Dockers mailing list.

Here's the link to the official site http://www.austgamesexpo.com/index.htm

There was a bunch of there last year and I imagine will be a bigger bunch this year.

hmm, it's the beginning weekend of my Uni exams period.
I'd love to go this year, but I'll have wait till I see my course timetable, and whether the exams are before or after the weekend.

I'm taking war-games up this year and in a daring display of gamer rebellion I'm going to play Burning Blue right in the center of the Euro area :D

I've asked them to supply some extra information about the open gaming spaces (and might have to add a request for a display case to put Ben in :-) ).

The main exhibition area is 1/3 bigger than last year, so even though some space is lost to extra vendors, that may not mean such a reduction in open gaming area as may be imagined.

I'll let you know when I hear of the upstairs floor plans.

Here's some info just in from Sacha about the upstairs gaming area:
The info is now on the expo site. We don't actually have a floor plan but it's basically just a big rectangle 6m by 13m. Phil reckons he'll get about 10 of those trestle tables we used last year in there. While anyone can head up there, there won't be any demoing going on upstairs so it'll pretty much just be serious gamers.

Fiddly little game that one Doug :) I'm at around 3 plays now, giving Scenario 3 a go on Wednesday night.

Yeah, I know. I've only played the two intro scenarios. Certainly involved.

Scenario 2 is much better Doug. If you're bored you should get hold of the solitaire S2 Excel sheet at Consimworld:

It's an excellent way to learn the system and almost as good as playing a live opponent, some would say better :)

I would be up for a game this Thursday but I'm locked in for History of the World. Maybe at next Eurogamesfest we can get one going?

You're right! Double-booking myself again dammit :cry:

OK, CC:E is still on then. I'll have to bow out of History.

Naah, don't worry, it's a lot easier to get people for CC:E than to set up a game of HotW. I'm sure I can rope in some other poor bastard 8)
