I-Con is out. Despite being the show where I finally met Richard, it was only an "OK" con. When I realized that it was the same weekend as Havoc (a smaller con but one that is less than an hour away and with a heavy wargame focus), I knew I'd prefer to do Havoc. Then I was invited to attend Northeast Wars in Vermont which works really well for personal reasons (my wife wants to go to Montreal for the weekend). So:
So, on April 4-6, YMG will be attending two shows:
, Shrewsbury, MA
Havoc is a small con with maybe 100-200 people and nothing but miniature games. I went there last year and had a pretty good show despite having an awful location (basically in the basement) because I only heard about the show after the main room was sold out. This year I signed up early and have a great location so I'm pretty excited...except that it'll be Darwin and/or Rob handling the booth! I'll be at...

, Burlington, VT
This is a show that ran for seven years, died under previous management, and is now being brought back by the good people of Quarterstaff Games. It used to have 400+ people each year -- who knows how many it'll have now? In any case, I'm in and will be showing and playing Battleground, Hill 218, Succession, Space Station Assault and maybe even a couple of prototype games if anyone asks.
Hope to see you there or at one of the other shows YMG will be attending!
