Historicon, Day Three

Okay, the last full day of Historicon was Saturday. And this report isn't posting until Tuesday. After yesterday's mammoth purchasing report, I thought it would be better to postpone this post another day. So why didn't I post it Sunday? Too busy traveling home. Anyway, on the the report...

I didn't get in a single game on Saturday. Both my games were cancelled (one a simple no-show). And I wasn't able to squeeze into anything that seemed interesting to me. So, no gaming for J. That made three games in a row cancelled, by the way, although I was able to get into a game Friday night to replace the cancelled one.

The boys played in two games: Destroy all Monsters (another Godzilla movie-monster game) and Ribbit! (GASLIGHT, using Eureka's new frogs and turtles, by Buck Surdu). In short, Destroy all Monsters stunk, and Ribbit! was awesome.

Dane and another boy move the North American troops. Note the Self Propelled Gunturtle in the foreground.

Painted by Buck Surdu, I think. Minis by Eureka Miniatures.

A very cool German Flying contraption at a Pulp game I couldn't get into.
Lots of awesome pulp-y goodness in that one!
Lots more pictures in the new Photobucket Album I created, titled "Historicon 2009". Catchy title, innit? Check the sidebar for it!

It's too bad about your games getting canceled. I wonder if that is an issue at Historicon or not?

Are most of the games at the con scheduled participation games? Do they have open gaming?

Most of the games are scheduled, but there is plenty of open gaming as well, especially in the evening.
