Genghis Con 2013: Sunday

Last day of the convention today.  There was a good turn out.  Definately more gamers than last year.  We got to experience a fire alarm at the hotel.  That delayed gaming by about half an hour.  My Battle of Flodden game went well today.  Everyone seemed to enjoy it.  Now that scenario is put to rest.  The next English vs Scottish Renaissance battle will probably be Battle of Pinkie Cleugh.

Genghis Con 2013: Saturday

I popped into our local largest gaming convention "Genghis Con" today.  Tomorrow (Sunday) I will be running my Battle of Flodden 15mm game.  This is the largest gaming convention in Colorado every year.  I think I have been attending for 12 years.

I pretty much just check out the Historical miniature games and the vendor area.  The vendor area is really lacking anything historical wargaming, which is unfortunate.  I did pick up a number of dice from Chessex that have various flags/symbols on the one on each die (Japanese, American, British, National symbol of Republic of China, and a celtic cross).  These should come in handy for future games.

The historical games this morning looked pretty good.  Attendance looked strong around each game.  I was surprised to see eight people playing in the American Civil War game.  I could never run an eight player miniatures game at a convention, but it looks like they were all having fun.

Below are pictures from the convention this morning.

Battle of Flodden Video

I made my first video and posted it to YouTube.  This video focuses on the historical situation of the Battle of Flodden mid way through the battle, from the perspective of the Scottish Army.
