ToonCon 2014 is a go.

We have changed some things, our location has moved to The Sutherland Hall, 1112 Central Avenue just down Central Avenue from our old location.

We are holding an auction on Saturday night, sign up will open in August. Our prices are still the same as last year.

We hope to see you there!

I have two, and really only need one.

Hellenes

Hellenes: Campaigns of the Peloponnesian War (GMT Games) is 2 player game on the Peloponnesian War of the Greek classical age designed by Craig Besinque (EuroFront series). Based on a variant of the Hammer of the Scots/Liberty system, Hellenes features good historical flavor, fast play, and lots of options for both players.

One player plays Sparta, the dominant land power of the era; the other plays Athens, the dominant sea power. Each side also seeks the allegiance of minor Greek city-states and barbarian tribes: some that persevere and others that come and go. Revolts, sieges, leaders, wintering, and civic discord all play important roles.

The object of the game is to erode enemy morale to the point of Surrender by capturing cities, winning battles, and devastating enemy territory with raids. Walled cities are very strong in defense, leaving Siege as a common method of reduction. But if a Siege is broken by a relieving force, the lost battle reduces the besieger's morale!

The map depicts Ancient Greece in the Aegean area, including the Peloponnese, continental Greece, Macedonia, Thrace and Ionia. A separate area on the map contains Sicily. Units include fleets, cavalry, archers, infantry and hoplites. Cards drive military actions and special events. Each card has both an Action value and an Event, and can be played for either purpose but not both. Actions include unit buildup, adding new units and group movement. Events include leader change, plague, barbarian uprisings, revolts, civil unrest, etc.

Hellenes includes 4 scenarios: The 431 BC Campaign (10 turns), The Sicily Campaign (5 turns), The 415 BC Campaign (12 turns), and The 413 BC Campaign (10 turns). Each one plays in about 3-6 hours.

Yes, ToonCon is back, and it will be bigger then before!

ToonCon is now expanding to Friday evening as well, but the cost for the weekend is not changing

The doors will open at 6:30, games will begin at 7:00. I am pretty sure that Eclipse is a Friday Night game and we are doing an all day Twilight Imperium 3 game on Sunday.

We have not finished the schedule yet, but it will be done this summer, registration will open in late July or early August.

If there is a game you would like to play, or you would like to give some feedback for last year's games, I have a handy survey for you to fill out. If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask me here.

I hope to see you there!.

Greg Costikyan, game designer, writer and provocateur wrote an essay in 1996 on SPI, called SPI died for your sins. It is a fascinating journey through games and the life of SPI.
