Convic 9 - Wrap Up

Postby MooseHead » Mon Sep 06, 2010 9:25 am

A special thanks to Julian Clarke (Unhalfbricking) for all the work in organising yet another successful convic.

Attendances probably a bit down with the combined impact of AussieCon 4 and Fathers Day combined, though still a great time had by all.

Hear hear!

Unfortunately I also had other things to do that weekend, so I only got to play 6.5 games:
- Incan Gold
- Ticket to Ride Europe
- Glory to Rome
- Age of Steam
- Antiquity (played halfway through, good but much longer than expected... Apologies again for my early departure)
- Say Anything
- Express

Hopefully I can get the full experience next year!

And see you all next at AGE/Cancon!? :smt006

Was a very impressive setup. I was also pleasantly surprised by the noise levels (or lack thereof).

I was only able to attend on Saturday (thanks again to Viranga for the lift) but managed to play:

Stone Age (1st out of 4)
*Dungeon Lords (3rd out of 4)
Stone Age (2nd out of 4)
Alhambra (3rd out of 3)
Alhambra (1st out of 3)
*Middle-Earth Quest (Don't ask)
Dominion (3 or 4 games, I won 1).

* Not played previously


Did anyone take any pictures?
Power tends to isolate those who hold too much of it. Eventually, they lose touch with reality... and fall.

Thank you Ben for navigating :-)

I only played four different games. I had only played Robo Rally in the past. The three new experiences addressed some past curiosities. So, I'm very happy I turned up.

Crokinole
- long dormant carrom skills arose. I like it, but it's way too expensive to purchase.
- I'm wondering if I can buy an appropriately patterned carrom board, and simulate crokinole. The pegs might be a problem.

Cyclades
- I like it, but this will have to wait in line behind other games that I want more.
- I'll have to find out how to paint miniatures. Albino mythological Greek creatures don't quite work for me.

Dominion
- it's better than I anticipated. I can see some of my friends liking it.
- it might also be a gateway game to magic.

I shall probably turn up to the longest day of the next ConVic.

I was only there Friday and half of Sat.
Pack and Stack
Brass
Antiquity
Pitchcar mini.

Can't stop thinking about antiquity. Great game. Hopefully get it under 3.5 hours next time.
