Cancon 2017

Well, Cancon is over again for another year.

What can I say? It was another big crowd. Lots of games going on. Lots of vendors. Lots of friends to catch up with.
Amongst the highlights was an interesting looking game based on the Russian invasion of Japan at the end of ww2.
 There was also a huge Flames of War game.
Along with the hordes of 40k, flames of war and other games with large followings.

Horse and musket was represented.
As was ancients,
28mm world war 2,
and even epic 40k.

Well done to the organisers.

I was lucky enough to play a few games with my friend Pete: Battlelore, Hold the Line and Burning of Prospero, as well as some family games with Nicole and her family: Sushi Go, Mexican Train, Qwirkle and Labyrinth.

All up, a great weekend.

Brickvention 2017

Its that time of year again for lots of lego at Brickvention.

This year I really liked the picnic and tea party displays.


There was also a theme of board games.

Of course the Thomas train set was great.

There was another one of those murals that have two pictures.

Other intersting displays include the d-day map.

Looking forward to next year.
