My wife has a girl's weekend 3-4 times a year, where she takes off for Friday and Saturday and leaves me to my own devices. I usually start gaming as soon as the garage door slams shut, and don't stop till Sunday morning. Both my kids like to play, so this arrangement works for everyone. Usually, this function is only open to rest of the Basement Generals, but I thought, why not open it up to everyone else. So, without further ado, I propose the first annual Basement-Con.
Wargame Downloads, so I've got a vendor. If I charge a small fee, maybe $5 I could provide beer and snacks (although lunch and dinner would have to be provided by the local pizza/sub place).
I have a couple hotels conveniently located nearby for those out-of-towners. So, opinions?

Just crazy enough to work.
Good luck with it. I tried hosting a micro-con for years but I did not have the benefit of a basement or garage at the time. Even the smallest, most rinky dink event spaces want an arm and a leg.
That's why our local con RECRUITS has been so successful. It's sponsored by a local high school so the admission's low ($5 for adults, free to students and military). The vendors pay next to nothing for space so we get alot of quality ones. Tons of games.
I can help run the silent auction, and the flea market.
Oh and put on a couple of games
It's already started. I put a post on the LAF, too.
When and where again??
Oh Man! This sounds like a lot of fun. Wish I was in the same hemisphere! :(
YES! Go for it, this is a great idea - what about fighting proxy battles for other EvE members? especially if there are 'ring-in' players, without any preconceptions.
....not that the Direktors advocate FUN as a pastime - - thats what the Liebregt is for...
Timeline: All depends on when the Mrs. leaves town again. I will check, and get back with a date soon. Just wanted everybody's opinion.
Well, boys, looks like Basement-Con is happening August 27-28th! Details to follow.
